4 at the Fringe
Thursday 27 August
6:30pm - 7:00pm
BBC Radio 4
The first of two shows recorded at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival, so obviously there was no CD for preview. Three names on the bill are guaranteed to be worth a punt - Rich Hall, Fred MacAulay and Russell Kane. The other, an Australian singer and cabaret performer called Ali McGregor - gender as unknown to me as their act - is entirely a gamble. But that's what makes the Fringe. Even if there's the odd miss, you always get to hear something new.
Radio Times reviewer - Jane Anderson
Micky Flanagan introduces comedy and music from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, recorded at the Pleasance Theatre and featuring Russell Kane, Rich Hall, Fred MacAulay and Ali McGregor.
