Relaxing with a cup of Isle of Harris gin tea at @eteaket reflecting on the best show I’ve seen at the free fringe this year! Go see it if you can manage, think along the lines of David O’doherty! #fringe #edinburgh #edfringe #songsforanewworldorder #freefringe #funny #comedy #music #hilarious #bestshowsofar #2018 @anestidanelis

#Edfringe Show Alert!
Fantastic Free Fringe available, including the talent that is @AnestiDanelis performing #sfanwo at @HanoverTap . Despite one of his guitar strings breaking, the music and comedy was on point! Well worth a visit! @TheFreeFringe #intotheunknown

Wonderful 3-day jolly to @edfringe Particular delight to take a chance on Free Festival musical comedian @anestidanelis and discover a gem! Hilarious, talented, charming, Canadian. His show Songs For A New World Order #sfanwo has an extra week. See it before he goes back to Canada!
