“Edfringe is best and the most brutal way to find out if your show is rubbish or not.”
WHO: Marc-Fredrik Gassot
WHAT: “Lion – The Weird and Magical Abracadabra Circus Show is an hour of pleasure, skills and a bit of thrilling fear led by a one-man circus crew. The performance honours the history of traditional circus with a touch of the splatter of horror films. This physical comedy is mixing magnificent mime, entertaining circus, surprising illusions and playful horror – wrapped in superb live music. Lion is a curious joyride for young people and adults alike. Welcome to our skewed circus!”
WHERE: Assembly Rooms – Ballroom (Venue 20)
WHEN: 16:40 (60 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
What can I say? Edfringe is biggest festival in the world and we Finns we like big things. Edfringe is best and the most brutal way to find out if your show is rubbish or not.
What are the big things you’ve learned since 2019 and have you absorbed any of the lessons yet?
This is my third time in this Edfringe madness so obviously I haven’t learn anything.
Tell us about your show.
Lion is best dark physical comedy at the fringe (and probably the only one)! The show mixes together circus, magic, live music and horror in a very stupid and funny way. It’s the best show that I have ever done.
I got the idea for it while I was lying in the aftermath of mole fever in a hotel room in Camden.
After the Edinburgh I’m hope to get more gigs than ever and to get a hero’s welcome when I return to Finland!
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
You should go and see all the others shows from Finland: Johnny Got His Gun, Raging Mother, Receptionists and Kvartetto. You should also see Julia Masli’s show Choosh and Viggo Venn’s show Club Comedian which are both really funny.
