PBH Free Fringe Reviews

Postby danny.worthington » 31 Aug 2007, 10:00

50% of the shows were reviewed and of those 66% achieved a 3 star rating or better - perhaps this might be a useful answer to people when they're asking if the shows are likely to be any good.

(This is based on on-line searches of the websites for the publications listed below and I can't guarantee that I didn't miss reviews for any shows)

Thirty-two of the shows at the free fringe were reviewed by at
least one of the following publications

The Stage (one show)
The List (one show)
The Metro (one show)
Chortle (Four shows)
Skinny Fest (Three shows)
Fresh Air FM (Thirteen Shows)
Three Weeks (Sixteen Shows)
The Scotsman (Ten Shows)

couldn't see any reviews for PBH's Free Fringe
on Hairline or Broadway Baby or One4Review.com

Best Rating for reviewed shows -

5 Stars = 2 shows
4 Stars = 5 shows
3 Stars = 13 Shows
2 Stars = 5 shows
1 Stars = 7 shows

I almost feel bad saying this, but we got 5 reviews.

Fresh Air (5 stars)
Scotsman (4)
Chortle, List, Fest Mag (3)
and we're expecting one from Three Weeks, which apparently is holding a sh*tload of reviews. Still.

Will post on our FF experience (it was great!) soon.

Hi guys, didn't spot your chortle review and the one from the scotsman still doesn't seem to have made it onto www.edinburgh-festivals.com but I have added the both to the stats.

nice thing in the guardian online too...

"With the cost of a £15 ticket (as discussed on last Friday's podcast) comes the expectation of a certain level of quality, but it also leaves much more room for disappointment. What you get from a free show - aside from a cheap and fulfilling August, if you scour the reviews pages and exercise a bit of quality control - is the promise of unfettered, off-the-hook comedy, of comedians going against the grain without the obligation to please every last member of the crowd."

cool!
