Desiree Burch pulls out of the Fringe

Family emergency keeps her from Edinburgh

Desiree Burch has had to pull out of this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

The news comes as the New York-born comedian was announced as one of the stars of the next series of iPlayer stand-up show Live At The BBC.

Burch’s Unf*ckable had scored four-star reviews pretty much across the board at last year’s Fringe.

She broke the news on Twitter, saying: ‘I am excited that so many of you were excited to see me in Edinburgh this summer. Unfortunately, I have had to pull out due to family emergency. Purchased tickets will be refunded ‘

Burch had been due to perform her new show Desiree Mother F*cking Burch at Monkey Barrel, who say the Fringe box office will be in touch with those who have already bought tickets.

Last week, Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Hannah Gadsby – whose acclaimed Nanette has just dropped on Netflix (review) – also pulled out of the Fringe.
