The Edinburgh Fringe Show Goes Beyond The Fringe

The Edinburgh Fringe Show Goes Beyond The Fringe

Press Release · Edinburgh, UK ·

Scotland’s first podcaster Ewan Spence goes beyond the Fringe with hundreds of Fringe legends in a new season from the BAFTA-nominated Edinburgh Fringe Show.

Following the seventeenth year of covering the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, listeners can continue following the podcast as it showcases the stars of today by going back to their earliest adventures on the stages of the world’s largest Arts Festival.

For the first time, Ewan Spence will introduce listeners to moments from our archive of over 1000 interviews. As is demanded by any Fringe retrospective, the first podcast of the new season goes back to 2013 to remember the Show’s interview with Phoebe Waller-Bridge about a little-known theatre piece called ‘Fleabag’.

Over the next few weeks, you’ll hear about the many different piano interpretations of ‘Hallelujah’ from Doctor Adam Kay (‘This Is Going To Hurt’), a brand new show built around trivia with John Lloyd (‘Qi’), stand-up legend Arthur Smith singing Leonard Cohen,, why comic powerhouse Nish Kumar helped to read the entire Chilcot Report out loud (“Iraq Out, and Loud’), and - wait for it - much much more.

“The Edinburgh Fringe is an institution known around the world,” says producer and host Ewan Spence. “So many of today’s stars of stage and screen honed their craft at the Fringe, and it’s only right to go back and listen to these formative moments of these modern-day legends.”
