Edinburgh Comedy Tour



The Edinburgh Comedy Tour is a downloadable audio walking tour that guides you round famous comic sites of the Edinburgh Fringe. Produced by Walking Heads Ltd, this is a walking tour with a difference, which peels back layers of history and folklore to reveal that fact is not just stranger but often funnier than fiction. This is a side of Edinburgh you won't find in guide books.

Our guide on the tour, blind local historian Jamie MacDonald, is helped and hindered by his hapless assistant Harry Gooch as he sets out to explore old and new venues of the Edinburgh Fringe. Together they will lead you on a hilarious tour of Scotland’s capital city peppered with anecdotes from comedians Bruce Morton and Susan Morrison. Very few stones are left unturned.

The 90 minute tour starts at the Fringe Shop in the Royal Mile and ends at The Stand Comedy Club in York Place. Other venues in between include Underbelly, Udderbelly, Gilded Balloon, Assembly and The Pleasance. Key venues are marked on the map and the audio tour also includes clear descriptions of how to get from one destination to the next with time for more stories from Bruce and Susan on the way.

The Edinburgh Comedy Tour is available for download for £3.99. Now you can enjoy the atmosphere and excitement of the Fringe all year round. Walk the tour or listen in the comfort of your home and laugh your way around the City.

Coming soon: The Glasgow Music Tour presented by Jim Gellatly the voice of New Music in Scotland. There is so much musical history and culture to explore in the venues and streets of Glasgow. Join Jim and friends and be guided around the City on this two-part tour uncovering hidden places and forgotten stories as you visit past and present music venues from the world famous Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow’s east end to the legendary King Tuts where supergroup Oasis were discovered. This is an unforgettable experience that takes you off the ‘beaten track’ and introduces you to the larger than life characters and musicians who have made Glasgow the UK’s first UNESCO City of Music.
