Spank! never lets us down – there’s no better way to wrap up a day at the Fringe than with this chaotic variety sweatbox of comedy!

It’s now a To Do List tradition to stop by Spank! in the first week of the fringe, and this year we made it on the first night – alongside a sell-out crowd lapping up lager and comedy in equal measures (by the barrel).

Spank! is one of a number of variety nights at the fringe, bringing together acts from across the festival programme. You get what you’d expect – 7-8 acts covering anything from musical comedy to sketch to drag to mainstream standup and beyond – but you also get a singalong, a chance to dance, some good-natured audience interaction, and almost guaranteed nudity!


Of course, with any show where the line-up changes every night, the risk is that you might catch a dud show. But hosts Evan Desmarais and James Loveridge guarantee a good night with their effortless enthusiasm, boundless energy, and determination to make every night at Spank! the best ever!

On our 2019 list, we caught performances by Matt Richardson (Just The Tonic at The Tron, 9pm), Myra Dubois (Underbelly Bristo Square, 3:55pm), Two Hearts (Underbelly Cowgate, 9:30pm), Esther Manito (Gilded Balloon Teviot, 4pm), Rosco McClelland (Monkey Barrell, 4:35pm), Marcel Lucont (Pleasance Courtyard, 10pm) and Michael Odewale (Pleasance Courtyard, 5:30pm). You missed a great night already, don’t miss the next one!

Theatre Reviews Design (5/5 stars) 97 days ago

The line-ups are always brilliant! The evening has an interval for another beer round and an enebriated 180 happy people empty into Cowgate at 3am. Every night, for 16 years and counting!

Long may SPANK! reign as the most successful show at the largest Arts Festival in the World!
