Gilded Balloon has a new venue and it is really making the most of it with some classy comedy.

In the next two shows, stand up veteran, Fred Macaulay, is taking on two very different guests at his new live chat show.

On 8 April he will host crime author Val McDermid who is a bundle of laughs herself, and comedian Mark Nelson. You can find out about his humour and his shows on Twitter here.

On 10 June he will chat with Tommy Sheppard MP for Edinburgh East and until his political career began the owner of The Stand. Fred will also chew the fat with former Labour leader Kezia Dugdale, perhaps to find out what it was like to be a Celebrity.

Both shows are at the Basement Theatre at the Rose Street Theatre and you can see both of them for just £15 if you act fast.
