2nd August 2010: Camden Fringe 2010 is on.



At Etcetera Theatre from 2nd August to 29th August 2010, its bringing together comedy, theatre, poetry, dance and much more.

The Camden Fringe boasts 400 performances of 100-odd shows across five venues in north London throughout August.

It gives Londoners the chance to see a huge variety of shows – at £7.50 a pop – without having to trek all the way up to Scotland on a crowded train.

Whether you want to catch some of the edgiest stand-up around or witness a new twist on Shakespeare or watch a group of OAPs rap, the Camden Fringe has become the metaphorical David, ready "to challenge the Edinburgh Goliath" (The Guardian).

Now in its fifth year, this rapidly growing four-week festival is offering fresh opportunity for both new and established acts to get themselves noticed in a creative environment outside Edinburgh.

Having started out in the Etcetera Theatre, the festival has shed its humble beginnings and now venues also include the Roundhouse and The Camden Head.

Stand-out comedy shows last year included the loveable Simon Amstell, the topical Shazia Mirza and the downright filthy Scott Capurro.

The venue is Etcetera Theatre, 265 Camden High Street, NW1 7BU. All tickets are priced at £7.50; and nearest Station: Camden Town Tube
