ONE of the many advantages of living in Fife is that Fringe performers frequently venture across the Bridge once they’ve finished their Edinburgh stint.

Among those heading to the Kingdom this year are two of the country’s top comedians, Rhod Gilbert and Jason Byrne, both of whom will be appearing at the Alhambra in Dunfermline.

Following several sell-out UK tours and best-selling stand-up DVDs, multi-award winning Welsh wonder Rhod Gilbert is back on the road and will be bringing his brand new live show to the Alhambra of August 29.

A regular on Live At The Apollo and with his own BBC One show Ask Rhod Gilbert, he’s one of the world’s hottest comedians and famed for his stand-up rants.

After the phenomenal success of his ‘Cirque Du Byrne’ Tour, Jason Byrne (left) is back with a brand new show, ‘People’s Puppeteer’, which he’ll be performing at the Alhambra on September 7.

The biggest selling comedian at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival, Byrne’s original brand of high-energy but intelligent lunacy ensures that there is no other comedian like him.

Tickets for both shows are now on sale and disappearing fast. For information, visit
