image for Edinburgh Fringe Festival to change it's name to "Posh White People Do Comedy Festival"
Scottish Patriot or Ironic Eton Twat? You Decide

The Edinburgh Comedy Fridge is the most prolific comedy festival in the UK and is the world's largest arts festival. Many performers and comedians usually are expected to pay up to as much as £6000 to put on a show at the Fringe Festival and despite the monumental cost - the fringe is viewed as one of the most effective methods of breaking into the industry, but change is ahead.

2015 so far has had a record number of black performers with an unbelievable record smashing three black performers putting on shows at this year's festival. 2015 also breaks the record for the most performers who didn't have a private education, as a jaw-dropping nine performers at this years fringe attended comprehensive schools, but festival organizers say "enough is enough".

Comedy Fringe Festival organizer Ian Duncan Cameron claims "Some performers this year actually had to fund their shows by actually having jobs and not just being given money by their parents! This is an outrage and is an injustice! Middle and upper-class people are much funnier than comprehensive school educated scum - that's just the way it is. I suspect they think that my taxes sitting in Guernsey should pay for their shows - so I am banning any performers that are not white, privately educated and did not graduate from Cambridge or Oxford."

The new name for the festival: "Posh White People Do Comedy" will will be effective from next years festival on-wards and it will now cost £12,000 minimum to put on a show and will mostly consist of Eton educated 21 year olds wearing tight trousers and performing improv and vegans sticking rice cakes in their mouths for laughs. There will be a live musical version of the popular card game "Cards Against Humanity" performed by the always hysterical and hilarious Cambridge Footlights.
