Just The Tonic Announces Edinburgh Fringe Shows

Just The Tonic's 2024 Edinburgh Fringe programme has announced 128 incredible shows so far with tickets on sale now. It offers a diverse range of performances from award-winning acts from the UK (including of course Scottish talent) and internationally from both established performers and exciting newcomers. 

This year Just The Tonic marks its 30th anniversary in August with two new venues added to their portfolio, Just The Tonic Legends on Cowgate and Just The Tonic at Cabaret Voltaire on Blair Street. Today’s announcement is a curated mix of comedy, theatre, cabaret, magic, and family shows that illustrates why JTT continues to draw audiences back year after year.


Just The Tonic’s comedy programme is always outstanding and this year is no exception, with double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and TV stalwart, Andrew Maxwell making the move to JTT’s flagship venue The Nucleus.

“I missed not being able to be at the Fringe last year and I’m putting ‘The Bare Maximum’ into my show this year so cannot wait to perform at The Nucleus that my friends tell me is a great room for comedy” Andrew Maxwell - April 2024

He is joined there by BBC Audio Award 2024 and Chortle Award 2023 winner Nina Gilligan and you can expect brand new hours from Fringe favourites Lucy Porter (pictured)Jimeoin, the latter who will be imparting his clever and quirky observations in his trademark devil-may-care’ style, Show Me The Funny winner Patrick Monahan and Craig Hill who is celebrating his 25th show at the Fringe.
