If you’re only going to see one thing at this year’s Fringe, it has got to be this. Now in their third year after sell-out runs for the last two fests, Frisky and Mannish are starting to really make big names for themselves, and deservedly so.

So get your (cheap)skates on and get down to the box office before the rest of Edinburgh beats you to it.
