BBC again

Apparently there are not enough things in the Edinburgh Fringe, so Bright Club has to come back and do another show at the BBC venue.

18:30 Sat 12 Aug 2017 BBC Blue Tent
This pun fact show is an academic comedy cocktail synthesised for your entertainment and enlightenment, blending comedy and research to create the rarest jokes. So come and laugh along as interesting, funny people share gags and silliness about what they know best – their own work.

We think the BBC is giving tickets out at the tent now - and that it is also worth turning on the night to see if you can get tickets
