The Top 155 Shows at EdFringe 2015 - Part 2 of 7

Where was I? Oh yes. Again, it's in order of quality, so these shows are slightly less good than the ones in Part 1, but much better than the dross in Part 6. Also, I've moved Tez Ilyas into this section because he assumed after Part 1 that it was alphabetical and that he'd be in Part 6. This is a lesson to him not to be a clever-clogs and never to assume as it makes an ass out of Tez Ilyas. It just so happens that all the quite good shows in this section begin with a C, D, E, F or G, but again, that's pure coincidence and they are all arranged in decreasing order of quality.

Pleasance Courtyard, 18:00. Paid

Stand-up

PBH @ The Voodoo Rooms, 17:15. Free
