Edinburgh Fringe comedians hit the big screen

Shows to be live-streamed to cinemas

A handful of Edinburgh Fringe shows are to be streamed live to cinemas across the UK.

Rosie Holt, The Wrestling, Patrick Spicer, Arthur Smith, Nick Helm, Shazia Mirza, Esther Manito and NewsRevue will all be shown in the big screen.

The Picturehouse chain will be streaming five of the shows across all 11 sites, while The Curzon Soho and Leicester Phoenix will be screening a couple of shows each.

They will be taking their streams from NextUp, which is broadcasting more than 60 shows live to their subscribers.

Founder Sarah Henley said: ‘We’re so excited about this project. We want comedy to be as accessible as possible for everyone, and these screenings allow for that shared experience of watching comedy with your mates, without the expense of a trip to Edinburgh. ‘

Michael Grand, head of public events at the Curzon added: We are delighted  to bring two outstanding Edinburgh Fringe shows to Curzon Soho. Rosie Holt has shown her talent for politically charged satire in her previous work, and channels that same energy in her hilarious hour-long special. While The Wrestling, the biggest show in Fringe history, has long captivated audiences with its face-off between world-class comedians and world-class wrestlers. We look forward to sharing these special events with a London audience.'
