Now in in its 7th year, The Schadenfreude Cabaret’s Edinburgh Preview Season brings a selection of the finest acts to The Harrison throughout June and July.
The beautiful surroundings of The Basement Bar make the perfect environment to see this summer's most innovative, creative and funny shows before they head up to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
As always the line up is an eclectic mix with something for everyone. From established TV regulars and award winners to this year's hotly tipped rising stars.
The venue regularly packs out so this year you can guarantee a seat to any of our double bills for just £5 or alternatively, just show up on the night and pay what you want at the end of the show.

ALI BRICE & LUCY PEARMAN
Ali Brice’s Lemonade Stand (preview)
You are cordially invited to the grand reopening of Ali Brice's Lemonade Stand. Expect silly characters, daft voices and bizarre audience interaction. Brice has quickly become a master of his own hilarious style of character comedy. Combined with his lightning-fast wit, this makes for a truly unique show from a one-of-a-kind performer. Come and celebrate the silliness! 'A twinkle-eyed comedy natural' ***** (ShortCom.co.uk). 'Eric Meat is a side-splittingly comical entity' ***** (TheUpcoming.co.uk). 'Joyously bonkers... the perfect level of exaggerated oddness' **** (Chortle.co.uk). 'Tear-inducingly hysterical' **** (Skinny). Directed by Spencer Jones (Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee 2018).
Lucy Pearman: Work In Progress
Harmless nonsense from 2017 Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer Nominee Lucy Pearman.
Lucy will be trying out a brand new show featuring some nice grapes, probably an apple but more importantly, a worm.
