Comedy (stand-up, spoken word)

Description

Barry Ferns has been performing life-affirming comedy shows on Arthur’s Seat since 2007. These shows, like the Fringe itself, thrive on hope against the odds. This year, performing comedy on top of an extinct volcano in Scotland seems less insane than it once did – this gig has finally come of age. Join Barry to take on 2021, battle the elements and create joy in/at/on this spectacular (100% ventilated) venue. 'These gigs somehow work - they are the most joyful gigs. They shouldn’t work, but they do.' **** (Scotsman).

We should have read the reviews!!! No Barry today either, but was a glorious sunny day and we had a great time climbing to the top. Where were you Barry?

It seems that the comedy is that the performer doesn't turn up. Well, we wanted to go up Arthur's seat anyway so nothing lost, but is playing practical jokes really in the spirit of the fringe?

DO NOT PAY UP FRONT! Barry yet again a no show on Arthur's seat..lovely walk/view but so disappointing when the comedian fails to repeatedly show up...especially when you've paid! The offer of a refund would at least be nice.

No Barry today :(

We showed up today and no Barry either. Looking on the Edfringe site it seems he might only now be doing shows at the end of August. A shame as we were really looking forward to it. But enjoyed the views and amazing weather.

Thought Barry was going to be at Arthur’s seat on Saturday but he never showed up. But we managed to climb up so we had fun
