The laughter of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe was brought by Russell Kane and gave exclusive on-board performances as Little Red LIVE, part of Virgin Atlantic Live: On Air activities for 2014, returned to the skies.

His unique 10 minute show, dubbed the ‘wry-high club’ transformed the Virgin Atlantic Little Red flight into the unofficial Edinburgh Festival Fringes 300th venue.

Russell was the first in a line-up of four top comedians to deliver entertainment in the sky throughout August on selected flights between London Heathrow and Edinburgh, with Carl Donnelly, Tom Craine and Richard Herring still to perform on the following flights.
