The FREE Edinburgh Festival Show [Ended]

Edinburgh 2011 is now over. Thanks to everyone who came along to see to the show, to those who said nice things about it in reviews, and to all those who helped to plug the show on social media.

We have 'some news'...

This year SomeNews.co.uk has its own live show as part of the Edinburgh Festival.

We're currently doing this website, live in Edinburgh. It's a daily show mixing topical material, sketches, stand-up and maybe even songs (sorry about the singing). If you're visiting the festival this year, and you want to come along, you can see it for absolutely free.


The reviews are coming in, including this from Three Weeks:

"Nestled in the basement of a New Town pub is this little gem of a comedy news show hosted by the charmingly affable Steve N. Allen." "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."

See it for free

Every day at 5:15pm we take over The Newsroom to bring you a fun look at 'some news'.  Hosted by Mr Steve N Allen, and featuring guest acts, it'll be more fun than reading a paper and won't leave your hands all inky.

So come along and see the show for free.  Email using the address at the top of the page, or message on twitter to get all the details.

The Newsroom

The show will take place in, rather fittingly, "The Newsroom", 5-11 Leith Street (click the map on the right to zoom in). It's on Leith Street at the junction of Princes Street and North Bridge, right in the heart of town and just a few minutes from the Royal Mile.


While it's the first year that SomeNews Live has gone to Edinburgh the host, Steve N Allen, has performed at the festival many times. Last year Steve was part of a sell-out show. Here's what some of the audience had to say about it...
