PERFORMING WITH HEROES of FRINGE
@ EDINBURGH FRINGE 2018
Heroes puts performers and creativity first.
In 2016 Heroes won the Edinburgh Comedy Award Panel Prize “Spirit of the Fringe” for producing Iraq Out & Loud. A non-stop reading of the Chilcot Report that was one of the most talked about events of the Fringe that year.
We followed that in 2017 with 4 of our shows being nominated for the main awards
Rob Kemp’s The Elvis Dead & Lucy Pearman Maid of Cabbage were both nominated Best Newcomers.
Spencer Jones The Audition and Mat Ewins: Adventureman 7 were both nominated for Best Show.
AND we retained the Panel Prize (well they didn’t take it off us)
However it’s not all about awards and we certainly can’t promise everyone who performs with us will win one
BUT what we do is make sure that ALL our shows have creative freedom, a good time and importantly are able to make enough money to keep doing it.

SELECTION PROCESS

We are very careful to not only select the performers that we think are the best but also that will fit in well with other performers in the venue. For that reason selection is by a team / committee of core performers and crew. Please don’t harass or chastise any individual. And Bob is just the figurehead. We don’t even let him have the wifi password.
We start allocating in Jan and aim to have the line up in place by Edfringe earlybird registration deadline.

(NB> We have turned down just as many great acts as we have promoted, sorry to some amazing acts and Bob Slayer once turned down the offer to manage The Arctic Monkeys)
