Edinburgh Festival Fringe: Summer Holiday: Rob Beckett
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world. Throughout August, the Royal Mile will once again become the city's most colourful and exciting artery with vibrant theatre, street performers and tourists flocking from all over the world to queue up for a glimpse of some bohemian mastery.
Every year thousands of performers take to a multitude of stages all over Edinburgh to present shows for every taste. From big names in the world of entertainment to unknown artists looking to build their careers, the festival caters for everyone and includes theatre, comedy, dance, physical theatre, musicals, operas, music and exhibitions.
During the festival the Royal Mile is completely closed to traffic. Performers from far and wide pour into Edinburgh to fire throw, sword swallow, try a new tune, or chain themselves to themselves! A wheelin' and spinning carnival world comes to life in Edinburgh when August hits.
See www.edfringe.com for further information and ticket details.
Rob grew up in south east London in a large extended family of taxi drivers where it was a fight to be heard.
As a middle child desperate for attention he needed to be funny so was in awe of his Grandad's jokes, but only until he saw a Tommy Cooper video and realised Grandad Cook was a massive plagiarist.
'A little short of a revelation (The Scotsman)
'Relentlessly smiley, perpetually grinning Londoner whose unshowy, unpretentious but thoroughly funny shtick has every chance of winning him a big audience' (The Guardian)
'He already has the confidence of a veteran' (The Times)
'Joyous, cheek aching and touching stand up' (Shortlist).
