Thanks for your post Stephen, I appreciate someone sitting down and writing something at length about something they're passionate about.

...in edinboro, as the foreigners pronounce it, everybody looks like "teddy" ...sounds like him, thinks like him and shares dna with him, too...

...a beautiful town filled with mean people that it is totally comparable, DNA wise, with a CHALK FACTORY...

Unless of course you're looking at the adverts on walls.

I heard it's great place to go for comedy and back stabbings.

Or was that Glasgow?

Since Stephen wrote the excellent article at the start of this thread five years ago, I wonder how much has changed as far as going to Edinburgh is concerned.

Since 2006 we have seen the Free Fringe/Festival mushroom from a handful of venues run by PBH to hundreds of shows, including an Award nominee last year. Of course with this has come a dramatic increase in the number of comedians chancing their arm taking a show up. Are they all as ready as they need to be?

2011 is the first year I've not taken a show to Edinburgh since 2006, so that's 4 years in a row. I'm finding the sensation of actually having money during April & May quite a novelty. But I'm already saving up for 2012. How will I feel not being up there, will I get withdrawal symptoms? We'll find out.

Does anyone else feel anything has changed in the last five years of the Edinburgh Fringe?

It's become much more difficult over the last five years for professional comedians with no massive TV profile to do shows that charge money because you're competing with free shows for the casual punter. People may say why not do a free show then? but it's a difficult thing for someone to go from years of shows at major venues to a free show because you would be seen by the industry as taking a huge step backwards.
