Hang out with us at the Gilded Balloon and get a sneak peak of some of the most interesting and promising new acts at the festival, it’s bound to be more exciting than that meal deal you’re clutching! We’ve got comedians, writers, TV stars, producers, directors and an endless supply of funny guests to satisfy all comedy appetites.
A different line up every day.
Find out what it’s like to perform on the Fringe, get festival survival tips and see some brilliant performances from our favourite shows and acts on the circuit.
“Funny Women celebrates women finding their voice in comedy. It’s flying the flag for funny and has launched amazing careers. It’s a joyous thing.” Stylist
“Loving what you’re doing for women – you are class acts!” Backstage
And as if that isn’t enough, we’ll also be asking you to help us raise awareness of #PeriodPoverty. Bring a packet of tampons or sanitary pads and we will be working with www.periodpoverty.scot to donate them to the nearest food bank, refuge or charity for distribution to women less fortunate than ourselves.
