Spank!, the late night gig at the Underbelly venue (Cowgate), is always good for a laugh. It's a mix of sketch, character, musical and stand-up comedy acts, blended together with a hint of controlled anarchy.
This year the organisers have decided to film some of the gigs and then interview the acts after too. The videos offer a little slice of late-night Fringe fun for those who can't be in Edinburgh or for those not allowed to stay up late.
We've picked out a couple of the videos here. For more see the Dead Parrot YouTube channel
