Mervyn Stutter's 'Pick of the Fringe' Showcases – 24th consecutive year.

The Edinburgh Fringe can be a daunting place. So many shows available, how do you know what is good and what is bad?

Mervyn Stutter's legendary 'Pick of the Fringe' showcase has been helping answer this question for over twenty years. Every day Mervyn and his team of arts professionals carefully research the Fringe to find the hidden gems and bring you a selection of seven for you to chose from each day. Each of these shows perform a five minute extract after which they are interviewed by Mervyn. This gives you a true flavour of each show plus some interesting background information about the performer(s). With these insights, you can confidently pick the shows you would like to go and see.

'Merv’s daily showcase is unique as it covers all the genres of performance: Theatre, Comedy, Cabaret, Music, and Dance. All in all it is a packed 90 minute lunchtime extravaganza. Mervyn’s show and his annual Spirit of the Fringe Awards are a worthwhile reminder of what the Fringe was initially for.' Stewart Lee

'From modest beginnings Mervyn has created a Fringe institution' Nicholas Parsons
