The Brendon Burns Show - Coming To The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014

"Somebody give this guy a series"

Why wait for a channel? Let's just do it on our own!

Edinburgh Fringe legend & 2007 Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Brendon Burns comes to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014 with something very different. Comedians are showing that the future of the business is online. The likes of Tig Notaro, Aziz Ansari, Jim Gaffigan, Greg Proops and the "innovator" Louis CK have seen good business in cutting out the middle man and selling their regular specials direct to their fans online to the point that Comedy Central has their own direct download store.

And while Brendon Burns similarly sold his "Y'know, Love 'n' God 'n' Metaphysics 'n' Shit" via that model, Burns is taking it a stage further at this year's Edinburgh Festival, as it sees the creation of "The Brendon Burns Show" (www.thebrendonburnsshow.com), an 10-15 minute online web series with stand up comedy, sketches and viral videos, to be produced EVERY DAY during this year's Edinburgh Fringe and then every week thereafter.

The show itself will be at the Liquid Rooms, in Edinburgh, every day (except Thursdays) from Saturday August 2nd until Sunday August 24th at 18:15. And the best part of it is that the show is COMPLETELY FREE to attend, as it is part of the "Free Fringe" Programme. However, starting a venture does come with a cost. And that is where your generosity comes in.

Brendon has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed for to purchase the equipment to keep the show ongoing, and if you are a wrestling fan, BBQ fan or just a fan of downright great comedy, this is a Kickstarter for you!

THE "THE BRENDON BURNS SHOW" KICKSTARTER

They range from photos & hugs through signed copies of his book "Fear Of Hat Loss In Las Vegas" through CDs, DVDs & Downloads of his back catalogue (including a couple of exclusive, never to be released specials) to making Burns your voicemail message to attending a live, on the night, recording of Brendon, along with the hilarious comics John Robertson & John Hastings, doing an alternate commentary to this year's WWE Summerslam with the ultimate reward of Brendon coming to your home and cooking you up some of his LEGENDARY barbecue for you and up to 10 friends.

Pledges can range from £5 (or your equivalent, around $8) to £1500 (around $2500), with the hoped for total being £8000. And if you aren't anywhere near Edinburgh, nevermind Scotland, you can still help as most of the rewards for pledging are universal, even including the BBQ!

Brendon will also be appearing with the returning COLT CABANA with their acclaimed (and upgraded) show "Brendon Burns and Colt Cabana Sit in a 150 Seater at 10pm and Provide the Commentary to Bad Wrestling Matches", every night from Friday August 1st to Monday August 25th (except Sundays) at, obviously, 22:00 at the "Stand In The Square" venue in Edinburgh's St. Andrew Square. Tickets will be £8 per show, with special guests each and every night.
