Hannah Platt and Good Kids WIP shows at Fierce Bar | Tue 25 Jan | 7pm | FREE

Two hot young acts will be putting their latest works in progress before your very eyes and asking for naught in return. ‘Daria for Gen Z’ Hannah Platt and hotly tipped sketch duo Good Kids will be at Fierce Bar honing what may or may not one day turn into (whisper it) Edinburgh shows for the price of a kind word.

Comedy For Hot People with Danny McLoughlin | Thu 27 Jan | 7.30pm | From £3

The Fitzgerald’s ‘Pay What You Want’ comedy gig has its first outing of the new year after a promising start toward the back end of 2021. Danny McLoughlin of the Damn Daniel Podcast is the headliner for the comedy show that is as vainly titled as it is consistently hilarious. Harry Stachini is guest MC with appearances from rising stars Eryn Tett and Ben Silver.
