Edinburgh Fringe Director Readies For Second Year of Festivities


By edg - Posted on 11 July 2008

As the clock ticks down to the Edinburgh Fringe, EG asks Fringe director Jon Morgan what we can expect this year. Morgan says, in spite of the credit crunch, and fears over a "breakaway" Comedy Festival, the Fringe appears to be appear in good health with around 2,000 shows coming to the city in August.

The Fringe director, now entering his second year, also offers some highlights from the packed programme of theatre, comedy, cabaret, childrens' acts and more. The interview rounds off with his suggestions for those wanting to experience some Fringe weirdness.
