CHARLIE RUSSELL AIMS TO PLEASE
Written and performed by Charlie Russell
Pleasance Courtyard (Below) | 3 – 27 August at 3.15pm
Charlie Russell wants to do a show in Edinburgh, but all she can think about is what she wants people to think of it and ultimately, of her.
So rather than focusing on what she wants to say, she’s just going to create a show that will please absolutely everyone by trying to hit as many solo fringe show tropes and styles as possible within an hour. That’s doable, right?
MISCHIEF MOVIE NIGHT
Pleasance at EICC (Pentland Theatre) | 3 – 28 August at 6.30pm
Starring them, directed by you, every show is different with you suggesting a genre, location and title, and Mischief hilariously bring the show to life, complete with rewinds, directors cuts, thrilling live music and DVD extras that will have you howling with laughter.
Over 100,000 households tuned in from over 45 countries to watch the live streamed version in lockdown, now see Mischief's Olivier-nominated improv delight live on stage.
MIND MANGLER: MEMBER OF THE TRAGIC CIRCLE
By Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields
Pleasance Courtyard (Beyond) | 3 – 28 August 2022 at 9.30pm
Mind Mangler (Henry Lewis) returns to the stage at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe following a reasonably good two-night run at the Luton Holiday Inn conference centre, suite 2b. His new spectacular is predicted to spiral into chaos as he attempts to read your mind.
