Off The Mix

Three recommended shows for Wednesday at the Edinburgh Festival 2015.

Off The Mic (pictured)
‘Off The Mic’ is a brilliant new book in which stand-up comedians get serious about comedy, and tomorrow its authors – Deborah Frances-White and Marsha Shandur – will launch it at The Pleasance with a free panel discussion on comedy featuring a number of the comics who appear in the book. Read more here and book your tickets here. It kicks off at 5.45pm.
Pleasance Courtyard, 19 Aug.

Simon Thacker
If the snippet of his performance at the end of the first TW Podcast of the year didn’t get you interested, hopefully the 5/5 glowing review in our Week Two issue will. “Relaxing and invigorating in turns, the interweaving of punk, funk, flamenco and soul with Baul ensured it was not too unfamiliar for western ears”.
Summerhall, until 23 Aug.

The Very Grey Matter Of Edward Blank
Don’t tell anyone, but there’s a glowing review for this show in our Week Two issue, out tomorrow. “The actors are consistently brilliant … a look at just how colourful the dark parts of our minds can be, this nightmarish fantasy might keep you up past your bedtime”. Actually come to think of it, tell everyone. And go see.
Assembly Roxy, until 31 Aug.
