|In 2011 We took over The Hive @ Edinburgh Festival Fringe
Two rooms 2pm to 10pm every day throughout the FringeWe booked our favourite Comedy Heroes and non-conformists and we called them Alternative Fringe @ The Hive. Acts were nominated for awards got huge reviews and entertained packed houses – we all had a wonderful time.
The line up 2011 included:
6:15pm – Frank Sanazi – the beautifuclly wrong songbird
7:15pm – Bob Slayer – “Good natured bad behaviour from a very funny man…” Copstick, The Scotsman
8:15pm – Phil Kay – multi award winning Scotsman and one of the most experienced and unpredictably hilarious performers on the fringe
9:15pm – Kunt and The Gang – a cult superstar, do not miss and also do not be late – it will be packed!
Devvo, John Robertson, Desiree Burch (SMUT), Jody Kamali, Tony Bournemouth (aka Jimbo), Ivan Steward, O’Farahan & Keith, Napi Lewis, Spring Day, Eric Hutton & Ben Elwood, Malcolm Hardee Comedy Debates
History: In 2010 Bob Slayer was doing his second year at the Hive – the bar take from audiences at his show was equal to all the other shows combined and so the venue asked Bob to bring in some of his wilder and more interesting comedy friends for 2011… The Alternative Fringe was born!
We will be back in 2012 with bigger and better plans!
