WhatsOnStage logo
Everything an Edinburgh show does is secretly (or indeed overtly) a cry for attention - and choosing a title is one of the easiest ways to get yourself noticed, or, indeed, written off completely. With a record-breaking 2,695 shows at this year’s festival, competition is fiercer than ever.

Here's our selection of the punniest, loudest or most outrageous shows touting for audiences this year. Feel free to get involved at the bottom of the page if we've missed any favourites.
