More About Edinburgh Fringe
- Comedy and Culture in Spades
First conceived in 1947, the festival came about after eight theatre companies turned
up uninvited to the Edinburgh International Festival and decided to hold their own fringe event the following year. It didn't
take long for the festival to become too much for volunteers and students to deal with, eventually warranting the formation
of a constituted body in 1969. Today, the festival puts on over 40,000 performances each year in more than 250 venues located
across the majestic landscape of Edinburgh.
The festival has been a key component in launching the careers of many prominent
artists, enabling underground performers to reach audiences of thousands. For example, the Fringe played an important part
in the rise to fame of future icons Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie during their then relatively unknown careers. Now, the arts
event not only gives unknown acts a voice but also often welcomes back experienced alumni including Al Murray and Ricky Gervais.
