BATSU!

Edinburgh, are you ready? Warriors, are you ready? 

Created in New York and Chicago, BATSU! returns to the Fringe after a riotous, sell-out 2023. Witness comedians compete to avoid electric shocks, paintballs, a giant chicken and many more hilarious, jaw-dropping punishments. Long, long ago, in the Land of the Rising Sun, four Warriors used the power of laughter to capture Batsu no Akuma, the Spirit of Punishment, within a sacred gong. The evil spirit has once more emerged at the Fringe and the Comedy Warriors must rise again!

‘This is truly our favourite thing we’ve ever seen, anywhere’ (Playbill).

£8 Hachimaki Headband Upgrade

Purchase your ticket and hachimaki headband and receive a surprise visit from the SAKE SHINOBI!! Book now to receive early bird pricing!

What is a Hachimaki and what happens if I buy one?

The hachimaki is a Japanese headband – imagine Karate Kid, but BATSU! style. These headbands, worn in Japanese culture as a symbol of effort of courage, are yours to take home. If you wear your hachimaki to the show you will receive two visits from the sneaky SAKE SHINOBI to deliver you two sake shots. BATSU!

Alexis Gay: Unprofessional

'Hey... do you have a minute?' Bad from your boyfriend, worse from your boss. From New York-based stand-up, viral video comedian and former tech employee Alexis Gay, Unprofessional is a comedy debut about working (or, uh, not working) in tech, and one very specific 4pm meeting at a company called... Redacted (she may or may not have signed an NDA, sorry!). Directed by Fringe veteran Matt Gehring, this show explores making work your entire personality, going nowhere on the hedonic treadmill and worrying so much about your LinkedIn profile that it lands you at the hair doctor.

Ruby Carr: eBae

Deep dive into the weird and wonderful world of eBay. I’m obsessed with the thrill of an auction, it’s like shopping – but with a winner. I will show you the crème de la crème of the hidden worlds and the weird subcultures of eBay. I have bought it all. Is this because I’m a sucker for a good deal? A good story? Or is it my obsessive-compulsive disorder combined with my ADHD? You decide! I’ll take you down the rabbit hole, seeking validation for each progressively more unhinged purchase. "Ruby brings an infectious energy and steady stream of animated stories... injected with a deluge of sharp-witted reflections" - The Student Winner of Funny Women Comedy Writing Award 2022. “One to Watch” Funny Women Stage Award 2021 Finalist Amused Moose New Act of the Year 2019
