Showcatcher (Assembly)

By | Published on Thursday 22 August 2013

With the festival being absolutely packed (and then some) with such a huge variety of acts, it can be easy to miss some real crackers featuring at the Fringe. ‘Showcatcher’, hosted by the hugely likeable (and well researched!) Myf Warhurst, involves a series of interviews, in which performers  come on to chat about their acts and about the festival in general. The fabulous boys from smash show ‘Briefs’, and the endlessly interesting South African comedian Tumi Morake, gave us a fascinating look into how their acts came together and evolved. The line-up changes daily, so it’s a great way to scout out new acts to see. Make it your business to catch ‘Showcatcher’.

Assembly George Square, until 25 Aug, 3.00pm.
