Edinburgh Festival Fringe Comedy
Nick Hodder has performed on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe every year since 2007. Some shows were good, some shows were excellent, and other shows were not his fault.
On these pages we share a list of these shows, and provide some explanation as to why they were the way they were, and why you, the reader, shouldn’t blame yourself.
“Three dashing young comics giving their distinct and original brand of humour away for free! Arguably they’re not dashing, and one isn’t young. But they are up and coming, and they promise they’re not worthy or earnest.” The line-up included BBC award winning comedy writer Nick Hodder, still claiming this as a title, despite the mediocrity and […]
“Edinburgh’s Festival Fringe in 2008 brings you some stand-up comedy that’s weird funny and free.” So mad we spelt it with a ‘K’. Original, odd, and also, at times, funny.

Compered by Nick Hodder, this ever-changing line-up of vaguely familiar and sometimes fly-by-night stand-up comedians may have seemed like outstanding […]
My good friend Dan Hoy was forced to choose: Go on a Stag Do, or perform at the Edinburgh Fringe? Dan isn’t very good at decisions, so he combined the two… “It’s Dan Hoy’s Stag Do! (It really is!) Come and join in the fun with Dan and two other stand-up comedians every night. It […]
“Three of the best up and coming UK comedians, take to the Edinburgh stage with a joke heavy hour of stand-up. If you like jokes, you’ll love this show. Hackney Empire finalist Luke Graves pulls fantastic punch lines from a raft of anecdotal material. Hackney Empire Winner, Paul F Taylor is a legendary joke machine, […]
Stand-up comedy of sorts. Join comedian Nick Hodder at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013, as he attempts to work out why he’s so devastatingly unsuccessful, and tries to remedy the situation by setting some goals for himself, and others. Will it work? Almost definitely not. Will it be funny? That’s one possible side effect. Will it cost me anything? […]
