Scotland's Best Comedy Venue (Chortle Awards 2023) welcomes back its Fringe showcase for 2023! A new line-up every night presenting the very best acts from the Monkey Barrel Comedy line-up and the rest of the Fringe. 'Fringe Heroes' (Metro). The 'beating heart' of the Fringe (Telegraph). Home to both of last year's Dave's Edinburgh Comedy Awards winners and seven other nominees. Down there at the Monkey Barrel, there’s something in the water, and I can't stop drinking it!
