Number, Please. - A Fabulous Comedy Show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe


Yesterday afternoon saw myself and a friend pop through to Edinburgh to enjoy a bit of the festival fringe. It was another scorching hot day and since it was a Saturday we got the train from Fife as we knew the roads would be a little busy. We went for ice cream when we arrived to cool us down, it was lovely and homemade. We visited the Pleasance Courtyard to see what was going on there, popped to the Royal Mile to watch some street acts and even strolled round the museum to cool down a bit.


Before long it was time to see a show, the fantastic Number, Please. So what's it all about? In their own words: "1952. When an unsuspecting switchboard operator answers a mysterious call from a dying woman, she is entrusted with a top-secret message that pulls her into an international plot to destroy the world. Fast forward half an hour, Sheila is chasing friends, foes and old flames on the 14:52 to Exeter as members of the Nuclear Justice Association attempt to arm the entire world with enough weapons to destroy it. Can she, the not-so-innocent bystander, save the world? Or will her lack of experience and necessary skills drag the mismatched team down?"

It's basically a feminist theatre comedy show packed full of laughs, train chases and some questionable props - which can I add make the show all that bit more funnier. The show is being held at Paradise in Augustines along George IV Bridge (venue 152) so it's easy enough to find. Just round the corner from the museum so really central. It's held at 4.50pm every day from 5th to 25th August (no shows on 11th or 18th) and it's a show you definitely don't want to miss.


Being billed as a 12+ age range I actually had no idea what to expect however once settled in our seats and the lights went down I was captivated by the actions in front of me. The big personalities, funny anecdotes and sassy main character who wasn't afraid to tell the men in her life how she really felt. It was a great story with tons of laughs, everyone in the audience was giggling away.

If you're planning on visiting the Fringe then you can get 2for1 tickets on Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th August. It just means you can afford to visit even more shows and take in the atmosphere. Make sure to book Number, Please. as one of your must see shows. Myself and my friend really really enjoyed it and you get a free badge at the end!


So remember, 4.50pm every day until 25th August (no shows on 11th or 18th) at venue 152 Paradise in Augustines on George IV Bridge. Tickets range from £5-£7 which is a bargain. You cannot miss this, enjoy!

I was gifted 2 tickets in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
