Abandoman, Fern Brady and Craig Hill top second Fringe on Friday bill

FOLLOWING on from the hugely popular first week of the 60-minute variety show Fringe on Friday, the line-up for the second edition of the cabaret has been revealed.

This week’s show, hosted by comedian Jayde Adams and live-streamed at 9pm tonight, Friday 14 August, will feature special performances from Abandoman, Fern Brady, Reuben Kaye, Travis Jay, Alfie Ordinary and Craig Hill. Alice Rabbit, Sadia Azmat, Rachel Fairburn and Laurie Black also feature.

Adams says, “I’m delighted to be hosting the second AJ Bell Fringe on Friday show. I’ve experienced how valuable the Fringe can be for an artist’s career, from my Best Newcomer nomination back in 2016, to releasing last year’s show as a comedy special and I’m excited to bring some of that Fringe energy we’ll all be missing so much this summer.

“This is a great way to keep supporting the wonderful artists and venues that come together each August. So, get behind your favourites on FringeMakers and enjoy the show.”

Fringe on Friday has been made possible through the support of online investment platform AJ Bell.

Tickets for the broadcast cost £9, which is £1 less than the price of an average Fringe ticket, with every penny raised going to Fringe artists and venues.

The broadcast will be available to watch online until Monday 17 August.
