Bored of mindless comedy shows? Then come to Stand-Up Philosophy. It's like stand-up comedy – only it's philosophical. Each day, a different line-up of the Fringe's most intelligent stand-up comedians will join professional philosophers to answer the big questions of philosophy, making arguments as well as jokes (although there are also plenty of jokes). Hosted by philosopher/comedian Charlie Duncan Saffrey, each show has a different line-up, a different philosophical theme, and a chance to argue about truth, meaning and value... For details of themes and line-ups see – come even if you’re just curious!
