THE comedy Fringe show featuring TV writer Graham Linehan has finally settled on a venue: outside the Scottish Parliament. 

Earlier this week, the Comedy Unleashed show featuring the comedian faced cancellation after Edinburgh venue Leith Arches refused to host Linehan due to his anti-transgender views. 

Linehan has previously claimed that the "gender identity movement" is "paedophilic" and said that "almost every central trans figure is a nonce".

The venue said they would "will not allow such views to violate our space”. 

Organisers then claimed to have secured a replacement venue only to announce that this, too, had fallen through. 

However, they told ticket-holders that they would be e-mailed the location of a third venue where the show would go ahead. 

Linehan and other comedians were seen outside Holyrood with a microphone and speakers, with a crowd gathering to watch the show go ahead. 

Andrew Doyle, the GB News presenter who organised the gig, tweeted a picture of a small makeshift stage erected outside the public entrance to the Scottish Parliament. 

He said: So @Glinner  and the other acts will do the gig on a small stage outside the Scottish parliament at Holyrood at 7:30pm.

"This show is happening, whether these activists approve or not".
