Lineups subject to change, but a great night is assured.

Venue is downstairs, beneath the Crown Pub. Unfortunately there is no lift. 

Venue is 18+.

Another dream lineup comes to The Cheese, the hidden treasure of an intimate comedy club tucked into the caverns beneath St. Nick's market. 

The same folks who bring you the weekly How Lazy Is He? night have been brewing a once-ever, all-headliner comedy binge:

Milo McCabe

Milo and his smoking-jacket-clad persona, Troy Hawke, is a club favourite around the UK, and an Edinburgh institution. Milo is a master of the moment. He brings an intricate yarn-board of a premise, then gets the audience all tangled up in its strands. The audience will follow this dashing and charismatic mug wherever he leads. He has twice been nominated for the Amused Moose Best Edinburgh show award and was listed as GQ's Top Ten comedy shows of the festival. 

  • Mad, comic genius. The Scotsman
  • a real masterstroke in character comedy. If you can actually manage to get a ticket for Milo McCabe, you absolutely must. I promise it will be a highlight of your Fringe. Voice

Phil Ellis

If you've never experienced a Phil Ellis show, you should know it is a shambles that will leave you wondering if any of it was planned, and sincerely hoping for his sake that it was, as this would mean he had some control of his situation. There is real jeopardy, like when an unattended child at a party finds several unfinished cocktails and an un-capped Sharpie.

Phil’s TV appearances include The Russell Howard Hour (Sky), Drunk History: UK (Comedy Central), as well as writing and performing credits on BBC Three’s The Tapeface Tapes. Funz and Gamez (2014 Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award’s panel prize) was mostly his fault. His BBC Radio 4 sitcom, Phil Ellis Is Trying, is in its second season, and if you're lucky is still on iPlayer. 

  • ‘A massive underground hit’. The Scotsman ★★★★★
  • 'Nothing is ever what it seems in a Phil Ellis show and there are surprises and treats lurking in every nook and cranny.' The List

Laura Davis

Playful, honest and sharp as a comically large bowie knife, or a razor-edged Mad Max boomerang (or any other edge-themed stereotypical movie reference that hints at her Aussie origins), Laura Davis is a veteran of the international festival and club circuits whose recent shows have established a cult following for their creative conceits and devastatingly funny jokes.

  • Winner Best Indie Show – Melbourne International Comedy Festival
  • "Impossible not to laugh. Everyone left on a high." ★★★★★ - Herald Sun
  • ‘A show that will make you feel better about the world’ The Guardian
  • ‘Imagine Sartre’s Being and Nothingness with added jokes’ The Wee Review
  • Comedy Channel Moosehead Award 2016

Here's what fellow Wrigglers had to say about The Cheese:

  • 'Awesome stand-up comedy, up close and personal slap bang in the centre of town.'
  • 'Great comedy venue - Wonderfully well-chosen comics'
  • 'Under-the-radar comedy night at a hidden venue - very cool. Excellent names on the bill, good value drinks, and a relaxed and fun Sunday night.'
