Updated: Aug 5
Catch some of the hottest, new 2023 Fringe Festival shows heading up to Edinburgh, without having to pay for an expensive train ticket, thanks to Comedy in Your Eye Camden!
Can't travel up to Edinburgh to watch your favourite Stand Up Comedians perform at the Comedy Fringe Festival? Why not head to Camden Town every Wednesday in July to catch a sneak peak preview of some of the top shows before they go up to Scotland!
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the world's largest arts festival, which in 2019 spanned 25 days and featured more than 59,600 performances of 3,841 different shows in 322 venues.
Established in 1947, as an alternative to the Edinburgh International Festival, it takes place in Edinburgh every August.
The Fringe is open to anyone who wants to put on a show, regardless of their experience or background. This makes it a great opportunity for up-and-coming artists to showcase their work and get their big break. In fact, many well-known performers, such as Billy Connolly, Stephen Fry, and Jennifer Saunders, got their start at the Fringe.
So for a very special July at Comedy in Your Eye, Camden is playing host to some of the hottest rated new shows heading up to the Fringe and you can catch some previews right here in London!
We have a really exciting lineup for you and here it is below:

Sam will be performing his half of the Floorfillers show, developed with support from Soho Theatre Labs. If you want to catch James Trickey's part, you'll have to head up to Edinburgh!
