Meet Steve Bugeja – Ed Fringe 2015


Hello, I’m Steve Bugeja I am a stand-up comedian, writer and excellent dancer.  In 2013 I won the BBC New Comedy Award and this year I’m bringing my debut solo show to the fringe.  My show is a story, a true story about the time I picked up a criminal from prison and drove him three hours across the country.  It’s called Day Release, because he was out on day release for the first time in 18 years.  Intrigued?  I should hope so.  20:00 every night at The Mash House. 

 What is the first thing people notice about you?

Probably my inability to maintain eye contact with people for a prolonged amount of time due to a crippling lack of social confidence.  That or my nice suede shoes.  

6 things you can’t live without during the Fringe?

Regular phone calls with my mum


Vitamin tablets 


Friends who aren’t comedians visiting

And crepes.  I bloody love the crepes.

 Who are your Edinburgh Fringe Crushes this year?

Probably any female audience member who smiles at me for a second.  

 Your darkest Fringe secret?

I have never visited Edinburgh zoo.  I will rectify this.  Oh and I once killed an audience member for not laughing.

Steve Bugeja – Day Release: Aug 6-17, 19-30,  Just the Tonic at The Mash House, 20:00
