The Schadenfreude Cabaret Edinburgh Preview season
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.

ALICE FRASER & LAURA DAVIS
Laura Davis: Ghost Machine (preview)
A show about life. Performed by a ghost. For the love of god. Laura Davis pushes into new ground in her internationally acclaimed, multi award-winning show Ghost Machine. Lauded as one of the strongest and most unique comedic voices around, Laura Davis is unconventional, cathartic and exhilaratingly hilarious. Ghost Machine sees audience members returning multiple times to celebrate this darkly honest, constantly surprising, existential extravaganza. Winner: Best Indie Show at Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Best Comedy at Melbourne Fringe.
'An original and provocative hour in the company of a unique mind' **** (List)
Alice Fraser: Ethos (preview)
Humans have always been fascinated by non-human minds. From the Golem, to Frankenstein's monster, to artificial intelligence – computers who could think, and threaten civilisation. Imagine an AI: a brilliant but naive mind, newly created. Now imagine that mind learning about our world by watching a comedy show. Alice Fraser (The Bugle and BBC Radio 4) explains our society of contradictions to a new robot mind. A silly, funny, smart show that explores what it is to be human.
