Full press release
Late 'n' Live burst onto the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1986, the brainchild of Karen Koren the Artistic Director of the Gilded Balloon. While line up shows are all the rage at the modern Edinburgh Fringe, it was much less common back in 1986.
Nowadays, Late 'n' Live takes place seven nights a week, during Fringe inside the Debating Hall of the Gilded Balloon in the Teviot building.
Selling to a packed house, the latest of Edinburgh's late night comedy cabarets promises the perfect opportunity to sample a variety of comedians before dancing the night away and squeezing every last drop from your festival weekend.
Late 'n' Live's anarchic free spirit and history of epic performances means that while the show is strictly a varied bill, it should have something for everyone's comedic tastes. The party atmosphere, the four hours of entertainment and the opportunity to see brilliant comedians that might otherwise have eluded you, makes it one of the most exciting shows on in Edinburgh.
