Andrew Maxwell Puts On Hilarious Edinburgh Fringe Gig in the Back of a Car



Uber teams up with top comedian Andrew Maxwell to offer 12 free intimate gigs in a car during Fringe

Andrew Maxwell Puts On Hilarious Edinburgh Fringe Gig in the Back of a Car

From today, comedy lovers at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe are able to book a free intimate gig with Live at the Apollo and Have I got News for you star, Andrew Maxwell…in the back of a car.

Uber is now offering gigs with the double Edinburgh award nominee and King of Comedy winner from today to Friday 10 August, booked through the Uber app.

All people need to do is download the Uber app and be within a one-mile radius of George IV Bridge in order to be in with the chance of booking onto the experience.

The ‘Comedy Car’ gigs will last for 15 minutes, giving up to four passengers an uproarious taste of Andrew’s cutting-edge observational comedy and acerbic social commentary, while taking in the sights of the Scottish capital.

Andrew Maxwell said: “The Uber Comedy Car gigs will be just like my stand-up, except, of course, I will be sat down.

“I’m excited to do some performances in one of my favourite cities and hopefully the riders will all be up for having a laugh!”

Alex Robertson, Regional Manager at Uber, said: “Lots of drivers who use our app like to think of themselves as comedians, but it’s safe to say Andrew is going to set a pretty high bar.

“The shows are already sold out on the Fringe website, however you and your mates can still book a trip with Andrew via the Uber app. Make sure you look out for the yellow Comedy Car banner which will appear at the bottom of your screen.”

The Comedy Car will be available in the city centre from 8-10 August between 13:00-15:00 on the 8th and 9th and 15:00-17:00 on the 10th, and there will be 12 gigs over the three-day period.

For more comedy by Andrew Maxwell, his new stand up show 'Shake A Leg' will be taking place at the Assembly George Square Theatre at 9.00pm all month.

Tickets for this show are also available via the Edinburgh Fringe website. For more information on Andrew's 2019 UK tour go to or via Twitter: @andrewismaxwell
