The SomeNews Live Show... At The Edinburgh Fringe [Ended]

All done! The run at Edinburgh has come to an end. If you want to see what I got up to there's the video diary. The highlight was getting a joke from the show in The Independent's Top 100 jokes at the Fringe. The posters were all around Edinburgh, nearly 5,000 flyers were handed out, ads came out and the show's name was even up in lights.

And as Broadway Baby said in their review of the show:

His whole show rolled like Steve N Allen’s own personal hour of radio banter, never pausing to take a beat. His improvisation was impressive, topical jokes quick and practised on his tongue to mix up with his banter with the audience. This is a tight, upbeat show that I would recommend going to see.

If you saw the show, drop me a line on Twitter if you haven't done already. And if you wished you'd seen the show, you're next chance to see SomeNews Live is at the Nottingham Comedy Festival.




Might as well face it, we're addicted to news. It's 24-hour, it's rolling and we can't get enough of it. From the home of the SomeNews website and podcast, comes the SomeNews Live Show, bringing comedy, sketches and stand-up to the Edinburgh Fringe.

Would you kill a burglar? How would you fix the Euro? Which member of Jedward would you eat first in a celebrity version of the film Alive? This show can help you find out, and you can come along and see the show for free.

★★★★★ - Love Fringe

From August 5th to the 26th SomeNews is on at 5:30pm. The show is on at Captain Taylor's Coffee House (South Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1LL) Here's a map.

Tickets are free. You can book your tickets here (there is a booking fee), buy from the Fringe Box Office, or just turn up at the venue before the start time of the show.

"Allen hits the mark more often than not, with an effusive mix of biting satire and gleeful mud-slinging that recalls Russell Howard by way of Ian Hislop. More than worth a look." ★★★★ - Three Weeks

And this year the show is going multimedia with the latest headlines in every show. Plus the Topical Joke Textline. During the festival run, text Mr Steve N Allen with the details of a news story and he will try to text back a joke or comment, so you can see what to expect in the show. Text 07999069372 with a news story to have a go. And anyone who sees the show gets the SomeNews Chronicle. It's a show not to be missed.

See you there for the SomeNews live show, every day, 5:30pm.

"What was evident here, is the performer is quality, his mockery, and the excellent use of accents combined with clever voice-over interaction; is a performer with masses of talent." - Fringe Review
