Amused Moose Finalists

Three recommended shows for Sunday at the Edinburgh Festival 2015.

Amused Moose Comedy Award Grand Final (pictured)
It’s the big final of the Amused Moose Comedy Award for 2015, with ten very fine comedians each entertaining you as they compete for the overall prize. Find out the full list here, and why not sample them all and find out who wins tomorrow afternoon. Things kick off at 1.15pm.

Vertical Influences
So worth the trip out to Murrayfield. Say we: “Powerful, fun, serious and exciting, these performers will captivate you with their skills, lure you with their ambiguous plot and surprise you with their street style. There aren’t many shows that could get their audience to endure sitting on ice for longer than ten minutes, but Le Patin Lebre have people willingly, and excitedly, sitting there, awaiting the second act”.
Assembly at Murrayfield Ice Rink, until 29 Aug.

The Elephant In The Room
One of the circus shows we tipped before the Festival, but we’re tipping it again based on our reviewer loving it. “How do you measure a circus show?” asks she. “In gasps. And giggles. There were plenty of both here. The tension and passion rise, and the physical art gets better and better. Top-quality technical work, the hooks of romance, and a cultivated aesthetic – that’s what gets the gasps.
Underbelly’s Circus Hub on the Meadows, until 29 Aug.
