Chortle in Association with Gag Reflex


Ace Dome - Pleasance Dome

Suitable for ages 16 and above

Please Consider Donating

In light of current Government restrictions and with the priority of public health in mind, we have made the difficult decision to suspend our operation at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and cease sales for Fast Fringe. This poses a significant challenge not only to Pleasance but also Chortle in association with Gag Reflex, who produce the show..

We would welcome any support you are able to provide by donating below. Your donation will be shared between Chortle in association with Gag Reflex and the Pleasance Theatre Trust, helping us both get through these tough times and back to the stage. We will return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to thrill, amaze, provoke and entertain as soon as we're able to, even if it may have to be in 2021. We look forward to welcoming you then. Thank you.

Any donation value is welcome, please feel free to edit the £5.00 default shown above.

So many comedians, so little time! Twelve top comedy and variety acts perform ridiculously short sets in one furiously fast-paced showcase.

There's a different line-up every day, selected by leading comedy website Chortle, so check for today's listings.

Previous acts have included Tape Face, Mark Watson, Lost Voice Guy, Paul Sinha, Pappy's, Rubberbandits, Robin Ince, Richard Herring, Showstoppers, Iain Stirling and literally hundreds more. A hugely entertaining way to sample the best of the festival, all held together by the best comperes in the business.
