Chortle Fringe advertising 2016

Our rates

Advertising bookings are now being taken on Chortle for this year's Edinburgh Fringe.

We are the country's No1 site for live comedy information, and last August we attracted 195,000 unique users making just under 1 million page impressions.

Every one our readers is seeking information about comedy, so the perfect audience for your show. And although comedy fans make up by far the majority of our vast audience, we are the most respected site for the comedy industry, too – so you'll also be spreading the word to all the decision-makers.

Among our hundreds of reviews, we commit that a professional critic will review every show spending at least £250 on advertising - although no promises can be made on who it is, when the show is seen... or, of course, whether they will like it!

The rates below are

Rate A: For any single week

Rate B: For three weeks. Either build-up: July 18 to August 7; or the bulk of the festival August 8 to 29. It's the same as two single weeks.

Rate C: For the full six weeks: July 18 to August 29. It's the same as three single weeks, and so represents the best value

These rates are the total you'll pay, plus VAT. They will not be discounted, so everyone is on a level playing field, although package deals will be available if you are booking several campaigns for several shows. Alternatively you can share the impressions of a single booking between more than one show.

If you book a slot you will share it with a maximum four other advertisers (but you may well get more exposure than that). You will get the whole space but only on that proportion of pages.
