Princes of Main: New Year’s Eve
About Princes of Main: New Year’s Eve

It’s August, which can mean only one thing… its New Year’s Eve! And what better way to spend it than in the company of a heady mix of bizarre characters, the sharpest of punchlines and the most charming chemistry.

2017 has been a bad year — personally, politically, and particularly for sketch trio Princes of Main. Following two madcap Fringe runs, these whip-smart idiots return to do the impossible: resetting the clock to give their audience (and themselves) a chance at redeeming this awful year by throwing Edinburgh’s biggest and baddest New Year’s Eve party. In August. Directed by Beasts' Owen Roberts, New Year’s Eve will be an unmissable show on the Fringe 2017 calendar. Join Princes of Main for the funniest, weirdest, most cathartic New Year’s Eve party you’ve ever been to.

Princes of Main are Ben Pope, Alex MacKeith and Jamie Fraser: three relatively tall but quite odd men who met as members of the Cambridge Footlights. As a group, they have performed in London, Brighton, Edinburgh, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Heidelberg, and slowly crafted a unique sketch style that mixes high-energy MCing with precision-crafted gags and always plenty of surprise.

Their beloved monthly charity night Crazy Science Stupid Magic has played host to acts like Nish Kumar, Tiff Stevenson, Liam Williams, Rhys James, John-Luke Roberts and Lolly Adefope and has allowed the boys to gain a cult following on the London scene. Having opened for Stewart Lee and Reginald D. Hunter at sold-out gigs across the country, Fraser, Pope and MacKeith love nothing more than raucous crowds and unpredictable outcomes.

Whatever you do, just don’t call it a Hootenanny.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Princes of Main: New Year’s Eve are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
