180+ Shows, 17 Venues, One Borough: Camden Fringe 2013

This year's pigeon, Pierre Hush

Say hello to Pierre Hush, the eighth Camden Fringe pigeon!

He's fronting this year's sprawling and diverse programme of comedy, theatre, music, puppets, magic, dance and multi-media shows that make up the annually expanding Camden Fringe.

The festival's reach now touches even more of the borough of Camden, with venues from Highgate to Euston, Warwick Avenue to Camden Road. The hub remains Camden Town, natch, with nine venues in easy walk of each other if you want to fringe-hop (we recommend this).

Shows are still being added to the programme even as we type, so keep an eye on the website and Facebook page for updates. We got hold of a printed programme, which is a good place to start, but it's still pretty hard to know what to pick. So we've randomly picked words out of show headlines to give you a scattergun flavour of what you might find:

Pervert, Edam, the Waleses, monogomy, psycho-geography, stand-up, terrorists, the only Jew in Swansea, normal, karaoke, whispers, Ajax, hobo-adventurer, ambulances, Mr Wolf, a queer foetus, half-baked, weird, not the time for politics, four femmes, lemons, Italian misfit, wine, pillow talk, Lewisham, Gender the Elephant, presidential, lovesick, peaceful, fluffy punk, zombies, bouncers, Pot Noodles, comedy mash, herding cats, secret wives, muck, school, Keighley.

So there you go. Take a chance on something. Tickets start from £5 and shows are generally one hour long.

Camden Fringe runs from 29 July to 25 August.
