Reverend Richard Coles: #SimpleCountryParson

Reverend Richard Coles: #SimpleCountryParson, Edinburgh Fringe 2019

Following his debut in 2018, broadcaster, writer, and vicar Reverend Richard Coles returns to the Edinburgh Fringe this year with his new show #SimpleCountryParson.

Reverend Richard is on a fortnight’s leave from his country parish and has been excused from his duties as co-presenter of Saturday Live (BBC Radio 4) to bring to Edinburgh this hilarious yet deeply moving one-parson show.

Attempting to live a hybrid life as the 59th Vicar of Finedon, Richard discusses hatching, matching and dispatching among the gingerbread stone houses, neighbouring Weetabix factory and Primark Distribution Centre – alongside his alternative life as a broadcaster, writer, panel game show contestant, Strictly veteran and (thanks to being voted Most Whimsical Vicar on the Wireless) borderline national trinket.

Produced by NMP Live, catch Reverend Richard Coles: #SimpleCountryParson, from 12th to 25th August 2019, 5:15pm at the Cabaret Bar, Pleasance Courtyard. Tickets are on sale now. For booking information visit
