"Das Contras....               
one of  the best bands
to come out of Scotland this decade"
Das Contras are a six-headed musical monster with a Latin temperament, 
a worldly attitude, two devilish horns and a rock n roll heart.

The Fife grown, Glasgow based band began as a duo and have grown into a 6 piece ensemble – with Sher Watson (lead vocals, guitar), Dave Webster (trumpet, keys, backing vocals), Tony Courtney (sax, flute), Colin Walker (drums), Andy McDonald (bass) and Gerardo Ballesteros (percussion).

With an eclectic, original sound, the Das are a bit folk, a bit rock, a bit Latino and a bit reggae… and just like their own music, their influences criss-cross genres and include Love, Manu Chao, Tiger Lilies, and The Specials among others.

The Das recently supported Terry Callier in Glasgow and shared a stage with him again at the prestigious Jazz CafÈ in London (after receiving a personal invitation from the man himself).

Das Contras have played King Tuts, Queens Hall, Barfly , Cabaret Voltaire, Princes St. GLadyland, Hobotalk ardens, RSAMD, Royal Concert Hall, The Ferry, Jamhouse and shared a stage with Marlena Shaw, Candi Staton, Acoustic and Derrick Morgan.

Das Contras @ Cafe Royal

A cold and wet November evening in Edinburgh was rapidly replaced with
the welcoming warmth and soul of Das Contras in Café Royal.

Initial impressions of the ensemble on stage were of lounge music. But
only if your lounge is painted a deep terracotta, you have a nightly
group of Latino beauties dressed in tight black dresses tossing back
large glasses of red wine until four in the morning threatening to
steal your soul and replace it with a never ending madness of
melancholy and passion.

From beginning to end there was no defining lead person, all of them
extremely adept at their relative instruments with attention shifting
from sax to keyboard to bass to guitar to the singing. The band had
left any egos at the front door to concentrate on the music. Dave
Webster’s head was lost in the sound created by his keyboard nodding in
time to the audience’s reciprocating appreciation, so smoothly and
timely executed. This was complemented by Sherman Watson on acoustic
and lead vocals, a charismatic presence despite his shambolic
appearance. The drums and bass provided the backbone of timeless soul
shaking grooves and the funk needed, holding back to add a more subtle
flavour to the slower numbers. The bass guitarist was all over his
instrument, especially when the strap fell off his shoulder appearing
to propose to the drummer on one knee for the rest of the song. The
horn section added that final harmony. The sax was (I can’t believe I’m
writing this) a tranquil yet also a powerful force driving the band,
while at other times entirely uplifting.

A refreshing change to guitar bands, their maturity and obviously
studied dedication to their craft created layers of warmth of sometimes
up beat jazz and reggae to despairing sadness. Think Ruben Wilson, gypsy
violins, Miles Davies, filterless French cigarettes, The Bosstones, bull
fighting and Ray Manzerick and you’ll probably wonder what the hell I’m
talking about.

There appeared to be a fairly large fan base with them and rightly so.
It was not just a gig but a celebration and a chance to party.

A joy to watch and even better to listen to.

Chris Catley - Live Music Direct

Das Contras were winners of the 2006 PRS New Music Award

Crowded House

This legendary band have returned with a stunning album which deserves to be rated alongside their best.

Spice Girls reunion tour
Well the latest news is that the Spice Girls are back! 
The girls have agreed to hold a whirlwind tour around the globe, including Sydney. 
It's the first time all five girls have performed together as a group since 
Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell quit to pursue her solo career in 1998.

The Spice Girls are back! The rumours have been milling around for years, but now the girls have made it official. And their whirlwind tour includes a show in Sydney. (Image: Getty)

1. The tour, which begins on the December 7, also includes stopovers in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, London, Cologne, Madrid, Beijing, Hong Kong, Cape Town and Buenos Aires. (Image: Getty)

2. The girls were a pop phenomenon in the '90s, pushing a unique brand of "girl power" and comprised of five of the most colourful personalities to have graced the UK music scene. (Image: Getty)
Spice Girls
1. And the reason behind the reunion? "We've talked about it for so long, to go on tour ... we all still see each other, we still speak, and the time seemed right," says Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham. (Image: Getty)

2. "The reason why is that it's been way too long! And we just want to go on tour and have some fun. See all our old fans, and sing all our old music," according to Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown. (Image: Getty)

Spice GirlsSpice Girls
1. Melanie "Sporty Spice" Chisholm adds, "recently, we've seen a lot more of each other and we've reminisced about the old days ... we felt it was the best time." (Image: Getty)

2. "I'm really looking forward to being back on stage with the other girls. It's been a long time and I want to look to the left, look to the right and see them right next to me," says Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton. (Image: Getty)

Spice Girls
1. According to Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell this is unlikely to be the beginning of a comeback. "This is a unique experience, it may never happen again. I can't see us being like the Rolling Stones, going til we're 60 ... we're going to experience this with different eyes. We're a little wiser, a little older." (Image: Getty)
 
2. And the best way to get your hands on a ticket is to log on to their official website. (Image: Getty)

Spice GirlsSpice Girls
 
1. Best of all it seems some of the old costumes may get a re-run. "We want to give a hats-off to our characters," said Mel C. To which Mel B quipped, "leopard print is back in anyway." (Image: Getty)

2. When the girls released their first single, 'Wannabe' in 1996, it topped the charts in 31 countries. The group went on to sell more than 55 million records. (Image: Getty)

Spice GirlsSpice Girls
1. But with Geri leaving the group in 1998 to pursue a solo career, and an unsuccessful third album, Forever, released in 2000, the group decided to call it quits. (Image: Getty)

2. But for a while there the girls were true pop icons and according to writer David Sinclair, author of Wannabe: How The Spice Girls reinvented Pop Fame, "a social phenomenon that changed the course of popular music and popular culture." (Image: Getty)

Spice GirlsSpice Girls
1. The girls caused controversy when they threw all protocol out the window in their meeting with Prince Charles. Although they were accused by some of being "over familiar", the Prince seemed delighted by the encounter. (Image: Getty)

2. Dolls based on the girls were released in 1997 and were a huge hit during the Christmas season. They have since become collectables and can be found on eBay. (Image: Getty)

Spice GirlsSpice Girls
1. The girls won't be alone on their tour. The seven children of the Spice Girls will also accompany them. "That's one of the many reasons for this, for our children to see what we used to do. And I may be the cool one in the family for once," said Victoria. (Image: Getty)

2. There are also plans to release the first Spice Girls Greatest Hits album prior to the tour. "I was a big Spice Girls fan when I was 10 years old. I'll definitely buy their album and I never got to see a concert when they were still around, so this will be a great chance," says 21-year-old fan Nicola Seodon. (Image: Getty)

Spice GirlsSpice Girls
1.The group is also discussing the possibility of taking part in a tell-all documentary. "You're going to see the dark side of the Spice Girls," Geri said. (Image: Getty)

2. Safe to say, the tour will prove popular, with an injection of nostalgia for both the group and their grown-up fans. (Image: Getty)

Bono: a triumph in vanity publishing

 

undefined
Hugo Chavez, friend of the poor, has booked a floor at the Savoy. Odd that the guest editor couldn’t find more room for this piece

The U2 star fills The Independent with his chums and misses a good story, says william langley. Hold the front page! Come to that, hold all of them! Preferably, as far away as possible. Todays edition of The Independent is guest-edited by Bono, the U2 frontman who needs no help to change a lightbulb. The whole damned universe already basks in his glow!

 

The first thing you see is a big, red square, decorated by Damien Hirst, Britain's richest artist (one of whose pickled sheep fetched £1.8 million in New York last week) bearing the anti-headline No News Today, and reminding us, at the bottom of the page, that "6,500 Africans died today as a result of a preventable, treatable disease". Quite. And if you felt that the world was, perhaps, growing a little weary of Bono's questionable solutions to the problems of Africa - he thinks more assistance is needed, although there is an equally plausible and humane argument that sending less would be more effective - this one-off venture is unlikely to win you over. By page 5 the singer himself appears, conducting a conference call with Tony Blair and Gordon Brown: "Prime Minister, I want to take you to a more personal place in your trips to this terrible beauty that we call Africa now... " Blair: "I remember being in Ethiopia and visiting people who were putting together really exciting projects... " Wait, though. There's a good story buried at the bottom of page 14. Visiting Venezuelan president, Hugo Chavez, friend of the poor, enemy of capitalism, has booked an entire floor of the Savoy hotel for his brief London visit. Odd that the guest editor couldn't find more room for it. But, then, there is guest music critic Condoleezza Rice to be fitted in, and Stella McCartney interviewing Giorgio Armani. Back on the leader page, Bono wryly admits that most of us are sick of "messianic rock stars". Too right. And of vanity publishers.

Fallen idol?philip delves broughton on the U2 singer’s un-PC new investments

Bono's reputation as the Mother Teresa of rock is in jeopardy following a pair of business deals tying him to one of the most conservative businessmen in America and the creators of violent video-games with an anti-socialist bent. He's also been criticised for a plan to avoid U2 paying tax in Ireland.

The deals were struck by Elevation Partners, a $1.9bn (£1bn) Silicon Valley-based investment firm, of which Bono is a founding partner. On Monday, Elevation announced an investment of $250m (£130m) in Forbes Media, a publishing company managed by Steve Forbes. Forbes ran twice for the US presidency - in 1996 and 2000 - arguing for a flat income tax, prayer in schools and a ban on abortion.

Bono, a champion of Third World debt relief and AIDS treatment, thus becomes part-owner of Forbes magazine and a number of other business titles serving America's financial elite. U2 has also joined many business high-fliers in moving part of its multi-million-dollar operation from Ireland to Amsterdam, to take advantage of a lighter tax regime. Meanwhile, another of Elevation's portfolio companies, Pandemic Studios, a video-game developer, has incurred the wrath of American liberals for creating a game in which players take the role of mercenaries sent to Venezuela to depose a Hugo Chavez-like figure. Players of Mercenary 2: World in Flames are told "if you can see it, you can buy it, steal it or blow the living crap out of it". Pandemic has also done work creating computerized war simulations with the Institute for Creative Technologies, a southern Californian research centre funded by the US Army.
Lisa Featherstone, a columnist for The Nation, a liberal magazine based in New York, yesterday challenged Bono to choose between his investments and his declared commitment to improving the lot of the world's poor: "If Bono is serious in his commitment, and not, as one frequently suspects, a vapid celebrity poser, he should immediately use his financial muscle to deep-six this horrible video game (right)." Elevation was founded in 2004 by Bono and five prominent Silicon Valley investors and executives, led by Roger McNamee, a venture capitalist and former business adviser to the Grateful Dead. Their goal is to invest in media and entertainment businesses. U2 is known as one of the most financially astute bands in the world, having retained all rights to their music. Bono's name helped Elevation raise its first fund, but he rarely attends the firm's meetings in California. He may care to drop by before Pandemic's next major release, Destroy All Humans 2, in which players "have total freedom to destroy anything and manipulate everything in the world".

Beat Off Dirty Yanks

Beat Off Dirty Yanks
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2007

A comedic character smackdown slammed with stand-up, sketch and improvisation. 
Some contenders include: Buck, a Jewish soul loving hick and Hector, a chauvinistic Mexican plumber. 
Free nightly knock-out bout of warped jackasses delivering American spunk!

 

"Beat Off" Dirty Yanks / DoubtUS Productions Print
From Saturday, 04 August 2007 -  21:50
To Saturday, 25 August 2007 - 22:50
Every day

"Beat Off" Dirty Yanks

 America's most idiotic, obnoxious, and energetic outcasts throw themselves onto the stage for a character comedy bout world premiere!. So come if you’re willing, come if your cheap, won’t matter to them because they’re all dumb as “bleep”. “Beat off” Dirty Yanks slams sketch, stand-up, and improvisation together to bring you unsophisticated American culture in its authenticity. Some wacky characters include Buck, a Jewish bemused redneck poet who loves nothing more then to shake down to a little 80”s soul. Or there’s Hector, a Mexican-American plumber who works day in and out to clean your pipes and plunge your holes. And who could forget the loose-lipped drunken bum who somehow guides this insane posse of trailer trash as the host. These three amongst other bizarre jackasses entertain in this free nightly event. Drenched in satire and shrouded in lowbrow knockout blows, “Beat Off” Dirty Yanks shows that even with all the American bashing going on lately, the land of the free can still kick some ass! The group got together before the show and we’re quoted together saying: “We’re coming for you. Our style is impetuous. Our comedy is impregnable, and we’re just ferocious. We want your heart. We want to eat your children. You’ve never experienced American spunk with so much flavor!” www.myspace.com/doubtusproductions

Doubt Us productions 
started their company and show because they were tired of conventional stand-up.
 They wanted to do something unique and different from what seemed to be the norm at comedy clubs.  
"Beat Off" Dirty Yanks 
is the first installment in a run of completely original character comedy shows.
 The show is a fresh and completely original alternative to most stand-up shows. 
"Beat Off" Dirty Yanks 
doesn't really contain well written jokes with witty punch-lines. The show doesn't focus on the joke but more on the chance to meet unique characters who happen to be funny people.

 "Beat Off" Dirty Yanks 
deputed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival '07 and has been leaving audiences perplexed, half cheering in hysterics and half with dropped jaws. 
DoubtUS Productions is a fresh, completely original alternative to your average stand-up show. 
DoubtUS hopes to redefine the comedy experience by claiming "Death to Stand-up!"

 Here is a brief overview of the people behind the DoubtUS crew.

Tim Schwartz:
 A true traveler at heart, Tim has spent the better half of three years traveling the world as a means to ease his old soul. Tim is a man, full of passion, he spent his last summer as a volunteer in a Bulgarian orphanage. He has always had knack for comedy and began a career last fall as a stand-up in Los Angeles. Quickly picking up his bags he moved to London and advanced his career in a scene full of conventional stand-up comedians. He is a true believer in karma and feels the world is unjust and un communal. His spirit is strong and therefore keeps a strong support system around him. His dream is what started the DoubtUS team, therefore he brought his friends with him, those that he enjoys their company and admires their work. While on his travels, Tim has studied different forms of performance art. He has studied improvisation at the The Groundlings theatre in Los Angeles. He has studied dramatic acting in London at CityLit theatre and has performed comedy throughout London and Los Angeles.

Ty Twiss:
 
Working at a youth hostels in Los Angeles is where Ty first met Tim. Becoming friends quickly after finding themselves having similar views of the world, the two jokers took on peoples perceptions of reality with obscure antics and stylish personas. Tyler moved to Central America though, but after months of life in the sand Tyler and Tim met again in 
London. While Tim worked on his act with the help of the young stallion, Ty squated in Shoreditch running a speak easy to make ends meet. He also was a part of a co-op which ran a vegan cafe in the urban area of Hackney. For months Tim and Tyler worked along side each other, creating experimental comedy in clubs throughout London. 
As time progressed they decided upon the idea of forming a company to be perceived as professionals. 
DoubtUS Productions was then born, and Ty and Tim began to formulate outlandish ideas for a comedy scheme. The path has now begun to be forged, all that is left is to take the first step towards success.

 
Ronald Prouty: 

Ron is shrouded in spirituality and personal growth. A regular practitioner of transcendental mediation, he finds an outlet for his bizarre and outlandish behavior on stage. Ron has a talent for combing quick-wit with wild physical humor. Ron's favorite outlet is comedy, he finds everything to be comical and enjoys bizarre and outlandish forms of expression. Alone in 
Los Angeles while Ty and Tim we're inLondon, Ron developed his own unique and outrageous characters. He showcased his talents in clubs throughout Los Angeles and brought his audiences on rollercoaster rides. Ron met up with Tim and Ty in London to begin DoubtUS Productions. He enjoys his spirituality as well as being an eccentric and rather intriguing individual. An avid surfer, Ron feels most happy while at the beach or on stage. Ron has studied improvisation at both The Groundlings and The Second City Studio theatre in Los Angeles. He has been a regular performer in over 6 improvising groups and has performed in comedy clubs all over the greater Los Angeles area.

History of the Free Fringe PDF Print E-mail

.......The one and only, truly free Fringe!.........

The Free Fringe began in 1996, founded by Peter Buckley Hill, with his show Peter Buckley Hill And Some Comedians.


Peter saw the Fringe as it then was: performers losing thousands of pounds, venues with four or five people in them, and complaints about high ticket prices. He saw that this was a vicious cycle. As costs to the performers rose, ticket prices rose. As ticket prices rose, fewer people went to shows and even fewer went to shows by artists they hadn't heard of. And this was bad for comedy; you can't make people laugh if there are only four of them, one in each corner of an otherwise empty room. And the more empty the audiences were, the more prices went up, to cover the rising costs of the venues. There seemed no escape from the cycle, and yet it was providing no opportunity for performers to rise through the ranks. The circle had to be cut. 

Making the space free to performers would not be enough. The benefit had to be passed on to the consumer. Only thus could more people be attracted to see more shows. 

The show that started the Free Fringe ‘Peter Buckley Hill And Some Comedians’ was the first of its kind. Peter paid a promoter for the space (there was no other option) and absorbed the loss. People called him mad. But audiences came. And came again. The bar broke all previous sales records. 

In 1997 a different promoter attempted to force Peter to charge for admission. He resisted, and won. Peter Buckley Hill And Some Comedians II went ahead, and this time he didn't have to pay for the space. Indeed, it turned out that the promoter had not been charged for the space by the venue; she had sold the slots to her fellow artists and kept the money. The middleman was cut out, and the principle was established that increased drink sales were enough to satisfy the venue. 

1998: PBHASC III became more established and increased its length to 1 1/2 hours. Name comedians played guest slots. But the pub manager left, and the area management didn't want the show to continue. A new venue had to be found. The experiment could have died at that point, but PBH was determined that it shouldn't. 

After some searching, a new venue was found: the Three Quarter Sports Café on Grassmarket. This converted church had a wonderful performing room on two levels upstairs; this arrangement was marred only by the management's occasional cancellations of the shows to broadcast football and other sports on the big screen. It was in this venue that the first attempt to broaden the Free Fringe idea to more shows was made. The idea was to use weekday afternoons for a three-hour long rolling preview of any Fringe shows that wanted it, in 15-minute slots. This was an ambitious plan involving vast co-ordination between slots in the days before everybody had a mobile phone, and consequently suffered from occasional no-shows and dropouts. For these reasons, it didn't always succeed, but often it did, end the public took it in good part, often having lunch while watching the varied previews going past them. PBH bought an electric piano for this show; it was played twice. He still has it, and he still can't play it. 

There were three years at the Three-Quarter; the public came in increasing numbers and name comedians played the shows. But the bar was closed and the venue sold, and yet another venue was needed. This was quite difficult to find. 

Eventually, the Canon's Gait was approached. The then manager enthusiastically agreed to host PBH's two shows, but no more than that. Any expansion would have to wait for the future. In fact, the 2002 shows nearly did not take place, since that manager then left and the message about the shows was not passed on. Fortunately, the situation was rectified in time and PBHASC VII took place in the Canon's Gait. Smaller than the Three-Quarter, in nevertheless boasted a warm atmosphere and the audience flocked. After so much upheaval in the past, the Free Fringe had found a home and a place to expand in. Or so it seemed.

It was not to be. One of the numerous parasites who spoil the Fringe intervened. Declaring himself a comedy promoter, he persuaded the Canon's Gait's management that he could programme the space with better shows. PBH said he could do the same, but the management went with the 'promoter'. Who proceded to organise no shows whatsoever, having offered the space he was given free at £2000 per one-hour slot to performers. Meanwhile, no free venue was available to PBH and the cause seemed lost.

A chink of light showed through this darkness in June 2003, when the former manager of the Canon's Gait, Linsay Watts, telephoned PBH to say that she was now manager of a trade union club in Brunswick Street, and would PBH be interested in doing his show there? By that time the Fringe programme had long since gone to press, and PBH had made other arrangements for August. Driving toEdinburgh and back in the same day, he and his partner looked at the space offered, and though he could not change his arrangements, he promised to make something happen. A show called Some Comedians Without Peter Buckley Hill was put in place, and did well despite being in an unfamiliar building, in an otherwise Fringe-less part of Edinburgh, and having no entry in the programme. The enthusiasm of the organisers, and the loyalty of the audience PBH had built over the years, carried the day.

2004 saw the return of PBHASC VIII, and this time another opportunity to expand the Free Fringe, using extra space in the UCW Club. And it was then PBH made the biggest mistake in the whole saga of the Free Fringe. Seeking an easy source of variable-bill shows to complement his own two successful shows, he approached the Laughing Horse organisation. They put on a third variable-bill show and offered PBH a small sum to attach their name to the venue. 

The shows went well. The formula worked. Now, after all the years, the opportunity to expand had finally arrived. For 2005 the Canon's Gait was brought back into play, so the Free Fringe had two venues. PBHASC IX went back to its third home, and a full raft of shows was booked for both venues. The booking was supposed to be a joint operation; instead, the Laughing Horse did it and presented PBH with a fait accompli. They also appended, without PBH's agreement, their name to the venues. Well, these were minor annoyances, and the important thing was that the shows went on. It was proven that the Free Fringe concept could work on a wider scale. 

2006 saw a collaboration between PBH and the Laughing Horse organisation.This also saw the expansion on the Free Fringe.This worked exceptionally well, with full capacities seen at all venues, to the delight of both audiences and performers.However, behind the scenes the relationship between Laughing Horse and PBH was breaking down.There was a clear division between Laughing Horse’s commercial approach, and PBH’s collaborative not-for-profit ethos.The behaviour of the Laughing Horse organisation during this period was reprehensible, attempting to take control away from Free Fringe founder Peter Buckley Hill, even trying to ban him from his own venues and events.Much about these events has been written elsewhere on the internet.

In 2005 my collaboration with Laughing Horse left me suspicious of their motives, but the shows went ahead, and they were successful.

For 2006 I found two new venues, bringing the total to four. A second performance room was also opened at the UCW Club, bringing the number of spaces to five. The expansion could proceed. Shows were booked; again, behind my back (This also happened in 2005). Some of these booked shows promised to be good, and indeed were; others should never have been accepted. The good news was that the expansion worked; full audiences were seen at all venues, and they were happy. So were the performers. 

It was on Thursday 24th August, ten minutes before my one man show started, that the Laughing Horse accosted me and informed me that they were taking over and that he was to consider himself sacked from the Free Fringe. I was also to consider myself dis-invited to the Free Fringe closing party. 

I, Peter Buckley Hill, own both the name ‘Free Fringe’ and the majority of shares in The Free Fringe Ltd., so the position was ridiculous. Nevertheless, the Laughing Horse captured three of the four venues used in 2006 for the rival festival they intended to organise, and made a determined attempt to capture the fourth. Had they succeeded, free shows may well have taken place, but the ideals and ethos of the Free Fringe would have died at that point. The concept of performers operating collectively would have been replaced by performers working for a promoter; no effective change to the status quo ante. The interests of promoters and performers can never be identical. 

Once more, I had to fight for my invention. This time, I blame myself for involving the Laughing Horse in the first place, and not placing curbs on their activities sooner. But with the enormous help of supporters and those who believe in the true ideals of the Free Fringe, new and better venues were found. Performers will go back to acting as a collective and co-operating with each other, as was the original plan. 

And this brings us to the present day. The Free Fringe has seven venues, with good performers doing all sorts of shows. We have even taken on some plays and other types of show. The Free Fringe concept shouldn't be limited to comedy; we can help other art forms also to do the Fringe at a reasonable cost.

We're still under threat; the rival "Free Festival", formed specifically to undermine the Free Fringe, will confuse the public. The Laughing Horse, who registered the domain freefringe.co.uk on behalf of the Free Fringe, are refusing to relinquish it, and it points to their web site.  But we've fought off threats before; we're standing up to the bullies, because we believe in what we're doing. It's a good deal for performers, public and venue owners alike. Please support us.

Peter Buckley Hill and Some Comedians - Free

The man who wants to set the Fringe free

KATE COPSTICK

THERE is a revolution gathering strength in Edinburgh this August. And when next year comes around we could well see the biggest change to the face of the Fringe since William Burdett-Coutts established the Assembly Rooms and created what has almost become a class system within it.

Over the years the price of hiring a venue has risen and tales of well-known comics coming up to the Big Three Venues, selling out their run and still going home with a four-figure debt abound. One of the main topics of conversation is the mounting costs of venue hire, PR hire, Fringe entry, accommodation, posters, flyers and the whole nine yards. No-one ever hears of any performer who makes a profit.

Audiences increasingly complain about ticket prices and bar tariffs. They also feel - if my eavesdroppings have been representative - disappointed that they don't get value for money. It is a year-on-year source of rancour. Many of Edinburgh's best-known names have, this year, decamped to Tommy Sheppard's Stand Comedy Club. There they get the kind of deal that performers at other venues dream about.

They play to small houses, the toilets are grim and their audiences have to wait outside because the space is so small, but they have a ball and they go home with a few quid. From an audience point of view, ticket prices at The Stand are pretty reasonable, especially considering the quality of acts on down there. All this is, of course, possible because The Stand is here all year round. It is tougher if you have to gear up only for August.

But all across Edinburgh, just for August, in pubs from Bruntsfield to Leith, something really very exciting is happening. The Free Fringe is an inspirational example of what can be done with a dream, determination and a lot of wholehearted cooperation.

In five separate venues, around 69 comedy performers are posting House Full signs. Happy punters are pouring out on to the street, pausing only to check out the leaflets advertising other Free Fringe acts. And the Free Fringe does exactly what it says on the label. The performers do not pay a thing for the venues and the public are not charged for the shows. The venues are happy to take the increased trade and it really works. It is a win-win situation. There is such a thing as a free lunch. Metaphorically speaking, anyway.

Established names like Steve Day and Andrew J Lederer have quit their mainstream venues and are delightedly playing to capacity houses under The Laughing Horse banner in Lindsay's in Brunswick Street and The Canon's Gait on Canongate respectively. I have seen five or six shows in Free Fringe venues and not one dud among them.

In fact, one of precious few five-star reviews I have given this year went to the unbelievably brilliant Martha McBrier, whose show goes on down in Leith at Lindsay's. The night I was there, I took my beer out into the garden and watched 20 comics sit under an awning, kicking back, having a normally priced beer and a smoke and a really good time with their peer group. It reminded me of something we used to have... oh yes, I remember... The Fringe.

The Free Fringe is the brainchild of Peter Buckley Hill, Edinburgh legend and long-time eccentric. In 1996 he brought just his own show and gave it away. Now he is giving away 69 shows. "People thought I was mad," he says. "Why charge nothing for admission when you could charge something? There's an easy answer: if you make it easy for people to come, they will. If you make it easy for people to try something they haven't heard of, they will. And if they don't like it - and however good or famous you are, there's always someone who doesn't like it - they don't feel resentment at having been ripped off. Because they haven't been."

Hill is intensely passionate about getting performers a fair deal. This is not just a guy bringing a bunch of shows up to Edinburgh, this is something close to a sociopolitical movement. Performers are expected to help each other with their shows, there is no real central organisation, there are no charges, hidden or otherwise. "Maybe 2 per cent of comedians make a profit in the Fringe. The rest make a loss. And it's their own money they lose, often five-figure sums. At the Free Fringe, the most you can lose is your Fringe fee and your accommodation."

After each show there is a bucket at the door that you can put some money in - or not. The odd thing is that the Free Fringe shows I have reviewed are the only ones I have ended up actually paying for, such has been the quality of the shows - because I wanted to.

You should take in some Free Fringe shows. What do you have to lose? The worst that can happen is you don't like the show. But at least here you can walk out without thinking: "Crikey, there goes £12." And you can experiment, see someone you've never heard of. Discover your own new favourite comics.

Remember when we all used to do that? As Hill says: "This is more like what a Fringe should be. There's no point having a Fringe Festival in which people only go to see acts who are already popular. That would be a mainstream festival, not a Fringe.

"At a Fringe people should be able to take risks. With the Free Fringe, they can."

Were I bringing a comedy show to Edinburgh next year, I would be giving three weeks on the Free Fringe some very serious thought. Over the years there have been many attempts at taking the Fringe back to its roots - giving the Fringe a Fringe. None has worked.

The comedy section of the brochure has come to dominate, and the Fringe increasingly looks like a trade fair. It is right that the people spearheading the best chance the Fringe has ever had to become a real Fringe again, are comics. The Fringe is dead, long live the Fringe.

• Free Fringe shows can be seen at the following venues: Laughing Horse @ Canon's Gait (Venue 78); Laughing Horse @ Jekyll & Hyde (Venue 259); Laughing Horse @ Lindsay's (venue 56) and Laughing Horse @ Meadow Bar (venue 264).

History

The Free Fringe began in 1996, founded by Peter Buckley Hill, with his show Peter Buckley Hill And Some Comedians.

 

Peter saw the Fringe as it then was: performers losing thousands of pounds, venues with four or five people in them, and complaints about high ticket prices. He saw that this was a vicious cycle. As costs to the performers rose, ticket prices rose. As ticket prices rose, fewer people went to shows and even fewer went to shows by artists they hadn't heard of. And this was bad for comedy; you can't make people laugh if there are only four of them, one in each corner of an otherwise empty room. And the more empty the audiences were, the more prices went up, to cover the rising costs of the venues. There seemed no escape from the cycle, and yet it was providing no opportunity for performers to rise through the ranks. The circle had to be cut. 

Making the space free to performers would not be enough. The benefit had to be passed on to the consumer. Only thus could more people be attracted to see more shows.
