Could still be doing the last week in the Assembly Hall. Which I guess is the most it makes sense for her career to be here at this point.

 Was hoping to do a few days this year but there's barely enough to fill one for me so far. Hope there's something good.

I'm already booked in for a week, so there needs to be some good stuff or I'm in for a few days of alcoholism and Fringe theatre!

Actually there's a fair few "oh, go on then" shows announced already. I'm sure I can fill the calendar easily enough.

Is Morporgo about this year? Or is he a every two years guy now.

He doesn't seem to have any work in progress shows planned and last year his promised new bit during a line-up show consisted of old Frankenstein material.

Probably not immediately, but it'll sell out.

I got it from his mailing list. Not sure what I'm doing or what my availability is in August yet. Pondering whether to gamble and book a ticket. Also just realised I will be in a meeting when  the tickets go on sale. "Excuse me I'm just going to nip to the loo".

It’s mid sized, somewhere between 300-400 seats I think

Morpurgo was supposed to be doing a work in progress in December but cancelled it with a couple of weeks to go due to it clashing with him filming something, the venue promised to email ticket buyers when it was reorganised and it never was unfortunately, and it's probably a bit late for him to start trying out something new now which is all a bit of a shame.

As mentioned in the Stand Up thread I saw Michael Brunstrom do a work in progress last week and loved it, and his last show was fantastic too, so I'd definitely recommend people go to see him.

JoMo will be in town with Austentatious anyway, so may use it as an opportunity to do some WIP.

I'm going to be in a bombed out old building in Beirut.  Bet there's no Wi-Fi.

Nothing that interests me in the latest batch. Fingers crossed for the next lot

There's a good chance that some of the best comedy shows of 2019 are already on there but by comedians no one is talking about or have no name recognition on here as of yet.  Completely packing your schedule this far out will mean you have no flexibility nearer the time when it starts to be clear which are the good and bad shows.

Most shows are on sale now at the venue websites.

Wanted to book Frank Skinner but 17,50 for a Fringe show.... not sure if I want to pay that.

Last time he was there it was a 90 minute show, so it's not bad if that's the case again.

60 minutes according to Assembly :(.

Just seen that. Shame, I was hoping for his full touring show.

That said, there appears to have been an increase everywhere this year.
Only a quid or two per gig, but that soon adds up if you're there for a week and take in a ridiculous number of shows.

Pleased Michael Legge has been promoted to the main Stand, even if it’s at midday.

Stewart Lee work in progress at a large room is 15 pounds.
Both have no right to complain about the state of the Fringe anymore.
