Russell Kane switches Fringe venue over acoustic problems

Russell Kane has quit his Edinburgh Fringe venue after complaining about noise problems.

The comic has been in the Ballroom of the newly refurbished Assembly Rooms since Monday – but has been complained that echoes are putting him off his stride.

He has now pulled his show tonight, and switched to the Music Hall in the same building from tomorrow.

In an interview with the Guardian, he said of the original ‘acoustically disastrous’ space: ‘It's one of the most gorgeous rooms I've ever seen in my life, but it's a bit echoey, and I can't think on my feet when I've got an echo.’

And he also said audiences had walked out complaining they couldn't hear.

But he told fans today: ‘I have found a solution.’

However the new shows are at 10.25pm, rather than 9pm – and midnight on Friday. Furthermore, Tuesday’s show takes place in a different venue altogether, Pleasance One.

Ticket holders must go to the Assembly Rooms box office for a refund and rebook for the new dates.
