Midlothian-based stand-up comedian, poet and musician, Eric Davidson, is back at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for a fifth year.

Pathhead resident Eric is staging The Only Way is Eric’s – and he has previously posted sell-out notices.

This year, he has moved to a bigger venue and his deadpan Scottish humour and topical poetry will take aim at a host of celebrities, including Australian newspaper and media tycoon, Rupert Murdoch, First Minister, Alex Salmond, and, of course, Scotland.

Eric was brought up in Newtongrange, and has previously received rave reviews for his Fringe shows.
