Annie McGrath and Jack Barry present their show Twins
If there's one thing better than late night comedy at the Fringe, it's free late night comedy at the Fringe, and this year, Pleasance are offering up just that.
For the princely sum of £0.00, you can catch Fringe acts such as Mawaan Rizwan, Karl Schultz, Tom Allen and Shane Todd, who all have their own shows at various venues during the festival.
As with most free shows, you can turn up on the night and hope for the best, or, if you're feeling flush (and organised), you can reserve a seat at the box office in advance for £5.

Karl Schultz: Matthew Kelly – Hypnagogia
‘Seems to be the genius among the young ones. The best show in town’ (Harry Hill's One to Watch). ‘Gloriously odd’ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Gloriously silly’ (Time Out). I still do Parky interviews on the loo. After this, you'll believe that's probably true. I have 48 words left. Shame about Terry Pratchett. He…
Twins: Pret a Comedy
Annie McGrath and Jack Barry are back with another sketch comedy show for people who hate sketch comedy. Charmingly laid-back, self-deprecating riff-waff at its most free. ‘Original and funny… Ones to watch’ (ShortCom.co.uk). ‘Brilliantly outlandish, and left the audience with a clear indication of the pair’s…
Ever noticed how people look like their dogs? The same goes for bags.
A stupid, surreal, one-man Sesame Street without the puppets, Bagman is a deadbeat character comedy by Brendan Murphy (The Beau Zeaux) taking you on a journey through the stories contained within the contents of a forgotten cloakroom. Praise for…

Shane Todd – Sick Bro!
The debut Fringe show from one of Ireland’s fastest rising comedians. Last year Shane Todd nearly died while at the Fringe. This show is about that, and some other things. ‘Notions of Alan Partridge and Larry David crowd in. But the scale and the delivery are all Todd’s own, and he delivers it perfectly.
BAFTA nominated DNN star performs his debut solo show, FLUU. Mawaan Rizwan has accumulated over 20 million views on YouTube through his absurd sketches. Using clowning and stand-up he explores controversial topics such as eggs, lamps, cows and things merging with other things. He also addresses himself in…
KINGS! / Ditto Productions
KINGS! is the brand new sketch duo of Adam Blampied and Lydia King. Much like the real monarchy, their ability to influence parliament is diminishing and they'd like your money please. Also, they've both got quite big teeth. Praise for Adam (Chortle award-nominated The Beta Males): ★★★★…
