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.

Heidi Regan: Heidi Vs Sharks (preview)
Winner of BBC New Comedy Award 2017 and So You Think You’re Funny 2016, Heidi Regan brings her debut show to the Edinburgh Fringe. In Heidi vs Sharks, the aforementioned Heidi explores our relationship with an increasingly confusing world via the medium of bad shark films (starring the aforementioned sharks). Topics covered include religion, the NHS and what makes Shark Attack III the Godfather III of bad shark films. Trigger warning: There will be sharks (in a few video clips, not in the audience).
Sindhu Vee: Sandhog (preview)
Loving your children, spouse and aging parents (in that order, please don’t tell my mother) is very hard work, very intense and, a lot of the time, it sucks. But who wants to live without love? Highly anticipated debut from host of BBC Radio 4’s Comedy of the Week podcast. As seen on QI (BBC Two), Have I Got News for You (BBC One) and Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled (Dave), and heard on The Guilty Feminist podcast. ‘Refreshing; clever stuff’ (Bruce Dessau). ‘Acerbic perspective and unapologetic delivery of less politically correct home truths’ (List). ‘Priceless’ (Chortle.co.uk).
