As comedy festival returns for ninth year, travelling punters look for an affordable hotel in London – and one website has the answer.

LONDON, July 08, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- For four weeks this summer, the Camden Fringe returns for its 9th successive year of comedy, theatre, poetry and dance. Across North London, more than 200 different productions will be performed at 24 venues between July 28th and August 24th.

As usual the primary draw is the stand up comedy but the festival is also upholding it's tradition of staging some of the more bizarre acts from around the world. In 2014, they include rapping OAPs and an eccentric take on the works of Shakespeare. If it's funny ha-ha or just funny peculiar, it's probably on in the borough of Camden this summer. Tickets range from £5-£12 depending on venue, which include Upstairs at the Gatehouse in Highgate Village and the Tristan Bates Theatre in Covent Garden.

Perhaps the most important venue for the Fringe is the Etcetera Theatre, where the festival began life in 2006. From humble beginnings, where performers barely outnumbered attendees, the Camden Fringe gradually picked up performers, punters and venues over the next eight years and now sits firmly in the comedy festival big leagues, attracting household names like Simon Amstell and internationally-recognized venues like the Roundhouse. Despite its success, the Camden Fringe remains devoted to new talent, and there will be no shortage of breakthrough stars of the future on show.
