COMEDIAN Richard Herring has warned that the Fringe has grown too large and that the bubble may be set to burst.
Writing on his blog, he blamed a combination of the Olympics, the economy and rising prices for the disappointing ticket sales being experienced by many performers.
Yesterday the Evening News reported that many venues had had a disappointing first week.
Herring wrote: “The Fringe has got too big and there are too many comedians. It’s open to the same market forces as the rest of life and it can’t expand indefinitely.”
