A comedy walking tour with a difference 20th - 30th August on sale now
Sell out event has just added new dates to their programme
The only live comedy event being held in Edinburgh this August
This is a truly unique comedy event coming out of Leith, created by Leith for Leithers. It is likely to be the only live comedy event happening in Edinburgh this August.
Invisible Cities, a social enterprise supporting people who have experienced homelessness, have joined forces with Leith Comedy Festival to create ‘Funshine on Leith’ – a comedy walking tour with a difference.
Leith Comedy Festival has added new dates to their programme following the immediate sell out of the initial batch of tickets, which were released last week. The additional dates and times for bookable tours include:
• Thursday 20th August 5pm
• Saturday 22nd August 12 noon and 3pm
• Sunday 23rd August 12 noon and 3pm
• Thursday 27th August 5pm
• Saturday 29th August 12 noon and 3pm
• Sunday 30th August 12 noon and 3pm
Paul has written the tour especially for Leith Comedy Festival and during this rich, colourful walking event, he takes his guests on a journey around Leith, sharing historical curiosities, personal anecdotes and juicy details that will make your jaw drop.
Zakia Moulaoui Guery, founder of Invisible Cities says: “Paul is one of our most experienced Edinburgh guides and his work is constantly praised by 5 star reviews online from our customers. He designed this tour specially for Leith Comedy Festival and it is nothing but different, thought provoking, fun and a bit outrageous! For Invisible Cities, it also marks our definitive return after so many months not being able to do tours, so we are all excited to see Paul in action!”
Award-winning tour guide, Paul, who has been with Invisible Cities for two years comments, “I am excited to showcase Leith in a different way and be part of Leith Comedy Festival. After several months of not being able to do our tours, it's great seeing guests again who want to learn and have a good time with us!”
Rosalind Romer, Director of Leith Comedy Festival comments: “I took my one-year-old to Paul’s Trainspotting Tour (to his horror and the bafflement of onlookers) and loved his stories about the best and worst of Leith. I was thinking and laughing about the stories for days afterwards, so it’s really exciting for Leith Comedy Festival to be working with Paul and Invisible Cities to create this brand new tour, based on the funny side of Leith. We hope it will bring a little festival magic to Edinburgh in August. We are currently the only live comedy event happening in Edinburgh in August, and creating an event that’s live, funny and legal has been a challenge. But we’ve done it.”
The tour contains strong language and adult themes, including sex and drugs. For more information and to book tickets visit: www.leithcomedyfest.com
