Bright Club: Scotland's Fringe

In a moment of madness we decided to do a proper Fringe run this year.  Find us at The Assembly Rooms.

There are nearly 90 performers in all so every show will be different.  We will also be back with the BBC@Potterrow for a one off.

We’re straight from the research field to the Fringe! Bright Club is the freshest thing in stand-up – an academic comedy cocktail synthesised for your entertainment and enlightenment. Our unique twist of pun-fact variety show blends comedy and research with diverse subjects ranging from Art to Zoology. We present the rarest jokes in the business so come and laugh along as interesting, funny people share gags and silliness about what they know best – their own work. ‘Authoritatively original and brilliantly entertaining [citation needed].’
