Camille O’Sullivan: The Dark Angel

For every fly-by-night that comes to Edinburgh in August one month and picks up the awards, TV contracts, films scripts and buggers off to their newly purchased castle on a tax haven Caribbean island. Others do some sweating for their rep and Camille O’Sullivan stands along side the likes of Russell Brand and Rhys Darby as Fringe veterans who’s repeat visits have paid dividends. O’Sullivan’s 2009 has been one of Time Out magazine covers and Later … with Jools Holland appearances and her smoky style – Broadway via the Reeperbahn and the back streets of Dublin – is finally getting the sizeable crowds it rightly deserves.

Assembly Hall, 623 3030, until 31 Aug, 10pm, £15-17.50.
