Now in in its 7th year, The Schadenfreude Cabaret’s Edinburgh Preview Season brings a selection of the finest acts to The Harrison throughout June and July.
The beautiful surroundings of The Basement Bar make the perfect environment to see this summer’s most innovative, creative and funny shows before they head up to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
As always the line up is an eclectic mix with something for everyone. From established TV regulars and award winners to this year’s hotly tipped rising stars.
The venue regularly packs out so this year you can guarantee a seat to any of our double bills for just £5 (here) or alternatively, just show up on the night and pay what you want at the end of the show.
