Image 10Anyone looking to embrace the Edinburgh Fringe this year but are perhaps short of a few pennies should look no further than The Three Sisters  – offering 99 shows over six venues and all free of charge.

The ‘Free’ Sisters programme at the popular Cowgate-based The Three Sisters will feature 99 shows every day for the entirety of the festival – and all entirely free.

The gigs, which have been lined up by comedy specialists Laughing Horse, will consist of a wide variety of comedy shows, with acts ranging from U and PG ratings to late night strictly 18+ performances.

The wide variety of comedy performers includes award-winning acts such as the five-star late night show, ‘Battle Acts!’, which sees two teams of fearless improvisers battle it out in a series of comical improv games, while of comedy duo, ‘Atella The Pun’ looks to provide laughs with witty puns and wordplay.

Acts ideal for families and children will also be on offer, including award winning author Stuart Reid whose ‘Reading Rocks!’ show talks about everything from bums to bugs to porridge while ‘Bertie and Burts Karaoke’ will have the kids singing along in their interactive show of karaoke, magic and games.Image 1

Each gig will be take place in one the six different rooms at The Three Sisters including Maggies Chamber, The Gothic Bar and Yurt Locker.

Sharon Norris, Events Manager of The Three Sisters said: “We are so excited to see the reaction to our ‘Free Sisters’ programme – even  though we have set ourselves quite a challenge to offer 99 shows every day.

“The variety of acts The Laughing Horse have lined up is really great as we wanted to make sure there was something for everybody.

“For those who are looking for some outstanding comedy events, they are guaranteed to find something that suits their taste – we seem to have everything from one man improv to theatrical comedy to sketch acts.

“It is also great to have families and kids at the venue for the children’s entertainment, especially with the film UP being played every day in the court yard.”
