Three debut stand-up shows being staged at Edinburgh Festival 2023…

John Tothill: The Last Living Libertine | Pleasance Courtyard
You know we love the debut acts here at TW Towers, given nice new shiny people and ideas are ideally what the Fringe is all about. So let’s talk about some comedy acts doing their first full edfringe shows. John Tothill is up first with his much anticipated debut hour, which – you may not be surprised to hear, given the title – is an educational show about pleasure. Click here for info and tickets.

Get Blessed! | Gilded Balloon Patter House | 2-27 Aug (pictured)
Now I reckon it’s time for some character comedy, for lo, it’s a brilliant way to do a comedy show and there’s always lots of high quality sets of this type being performed up at the Fringe. Our debut pick is ‘Get Blessed!’ by Niamh Denyer, who steps into the role of Áine Reilly, a funeral celebrant who is going to teach you the art of the perfect send off.

Maggie Crane: Side By Side | Underbelly Bristo Square | 2-28 Aug
Finally, let’s head over to Underbelly to pass the time with Maggie Crane, a New York-based US comedian, writer and actress who is in Edinburgh to give you her autobiographical account of growing up in western Massachusetts alongside her disabled brother (and best friend) Aiden. Expect something that’s both funny and heartbreaking, I think. Click here for info and tickets.
