Paid Members Ron Simmons Posted August 29, 2011 Paid Members Share Posted August 29, 2011 So it's the end of the Edinburgh Fringe today, did any of you guys go? What acts did you go see? Any potential breakout stars? Any utter bizarre acts you came across? Any acts you'd recommend if they were to tour? I was particularly impressed with The Magnets, an utterly outstanding acapella group that sing contemporary songs - you can find them on YouTube but nothing compares with seeing them live. Funny, talented, and well worth the standing ovation they earned. An oddity, albeit a hilarious one, I came across was the comedian Edward Aczel...anyone seen him before? Again, he's on YouTube. His whole act is just...weird, but somehow utterly compelling at the same time. He's described as an 'anti-comedian' in reviews, and that pretty much sums him up. Unpolished delivery, some (I think) intentionally shitty ad-libbing, and just general weirdness. Ali Cook, a magician who I think is on TV now and again, is worth checking out if he ever comes to your area. Some outstandingly clever tricks on show and funny patter too. So yeah, any Fringe experiences to share, from this year or years gone by? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
