The Fringe, Fame and Me 10 August 2022: Wednesday on BBC Two 11

The story of how a small Scottish arts festival that began in 1947 became a national institution that has seen new stars forged, careers made and dreams dashed.

Told by the stars who first found fame at the Edinburgh Fringe, this is the inside story of what it takes to make a name here – from those who enjoyed overnight success, to those who slogged for years to make it. Through their triumphs, favourite jokes, and sometimes painful failures, we discover a hidden history of British comedy, revealing how the gags we find funny and the comedians we love reflect our changing culture.
