She is. But she is also mates with Josie Long and if the conversation ever happened to come up...

I think that was also specifically in regard to some fucking horrific ironic sexism on here.

Can't see a Sam & Tom show listed.

Sam Nicoresti and Tom are doing solo shows, dunno whether they're doing a double act this year.

Kitson isn’t in the midnight slot at the Stand, unless he’s just on for the second half of the month:

Nope - I think I might do all 3, but it's the latter two that are bolted on.

My planner is starting to get stacked for the first week. Just need to know where / when Lucy Pearman is going to show up.

My thoughts exactly!

She’s on the Monkey Barrel flyer but don’t no anything else.

French Exchange and Lance are the ones I need to see.
Shame he's on at such a peak time, as I'd love to see his other shows again too.

I saw French Exchange when he did the trilogy in one night a few years ago, going off my recollection it was a little weaker than the other two but certainly not bad. French Exchange/Lance/Maestro all fit together really well as an overall arc for want of a better way of putting it.

Thanks for the tip, that FFF looks fun!

Anyone got any theatre recommendations? I want to try and mix it up (although my schedule is already looking packed!)

My Fringe calendar can only be described as "a work in progress".
Luckily I've colour-coded it for extra clarity.

Was hoping that Lazy Susan would reprise their show from last year.

Is that everything announced now then? Amazed that some festival regulars aren't there this year - no Janey Godley, Phill Jupitus, Stephen Bailey, Lucy Pearman, Jimmy McGhie etc....

There's always a few late additions*, but that's everything that's going to be in the programme.

*Kitson's notoriously late

When did they start putting Audience Participation warnings on some of the show listings?

Natalie Palamides was robbed of a nomination but her legacy shall be commemorated forever in the introduction of Audience Participation warnings in the Fringe guide. :)
