Each year, the Scottish capitol of Edinburgh is host to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe; also known as the World’s largest art and comedy festival. Over the next week, The Hudsucker’s Drew Bryce will take you on a tour of some of the biggest acts, and some of the places you have to go see. Also, the places you can get free hats…

Part two of my Edinburgh Fringe adventure started out at one of Edinburgh’s newest restaurants, Cosmo. Offering an Asian Deli; Sushi; a Noodle and Wok Bar; Dim Sum and Indian Tandoori; Cosmo is a great venue for starting off a festival night out. That is as long as you have enough time to sit and digest for a little while. Once you’ve eaten at Cosmo, you aren’t going anywhere for a while…

The headline act of my evening was British stand-up comedian Daniel Sloss. Most famous for his appearances on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow; Sloss is a 22 year old comic best know for his self deprecating humour.

Performing a solo act at one of Edinburgh’s largest venues (the EICC) must be nerve racking even for more experienced stand-ups, but he held the audience in the palm of his hand throughout.

Walking through the city after the event reminds me why Edinburgh is one of the best (and most underrated) cities in the World. It’s a beautiful thing to see so many tourists come and enjoy your home town during an event like this; and I think that it is them even more than the acts that perform; that really make the Fringe a special time and place to be.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe runs from August 2 to August 26. For more information, check out their official site. Follow them on Twitter or Facebook for updates!
