McIntyre charges for an unfinished show

In the Edinburgh fringe this year, you will not see comedian Michael McIntyre. Still, you will see him in the Scotland capital in the August concert, where his performance will toll 3 times as much as ended shows by other top comedians.

The judge of Britain's Got Talent has been bawled out for trading on as well as countermining Edinburgh fringe festival – a concert where the purchase of tickets have remained affordable traditionally.

Michael McIntyre will play 2 nights at the Edinburgh Playhouse on 5th August and 6th August to polish his performance for his upcoming arena tour in Ireland and United Kingdom. Each ticket – from 3rd tire balcony seats to stalls – will be £31, which is only £4 cheaper compared to subsequent tour dates.

Comparatively, the brand new standup show of Daniel Kitson titles Where Once Was Wonder that sold out in just 43 minutes. The show costs only £ 10. The List, a local listing magazine, criticized the ticket cost. It also says that McIntyre deprives those struggling comedians crawling up and down the Royal Mile.

Other top comedians like Jimmy Carr and Ricky Gervais’s presence at Edinburgh fringe show has raised the debate whether it raises the profile of the festival and some other debating that this undermines small acts as the fringe a nice scope for small acts. This year, Jimmy Carr is playing 6 dates at Edinburgh International Conference Centre as fringe festival’s part. The tickets for the show, titled Gagging Order will cost £ 18.50.
