Nina Gilligan : Goldfish - Now on Sale Edinburgh Fringe

8.40pm Just the Tonic Nucleus - 2nd to 25th Aug (nor 5th/12th)

Award-winning comedian Nina Gilligan returns to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with her brand new show entitled ‘Goldfish’.  Since her last Fringe show, ‘Late Developer’ in 2022, she has won numerous awards.  Nina is sometimes outrageous, always hilarious with a charming, loveable persona and an acerbic wit.  She has the ability to transcend age barriers effortlessly and has a relatable and authentic working-class voice.  


“She’s a vivacious, life-embracing performer, with a cheeky, ready wit”. SCOTSMAN 


She explores both the silly and the scary sides of health anxiety and memory loss. The things she can’t remember, the memory short cuts and unexpected benefits, before delivering the gut punch of a thing she can’t forget, but wants to share about sexual harassment within the industry. The collective noun for goldfish is a ‘troubling’ and Nina firmly believes in the collective power of the female troubling and the precious nature of memory. Let Nina talk you through her pain to hilarious effect and watch her as she continues to rise through the comedy ranks. 

“Naturally funny” JOHN THOMSON (Cold Feet) 

“A hidden gem of the Circuit” KIRI PRITCHARD MCLEAN  

“Brilliant, an outstanding comic” TOBY FOSTER (Phoenix Nights)
