Stunt cyclist, Danny MacAskill, is to stage his own show at Edinburgh Festival Fringe show.

The Skye-born YouTube star, famous for viral videos such as The Ridge, as well as a daring stunts, will headline his own event on the Meadows from 3 August to 24 August. 

The show will feature other acrobatic, burlesque and cabaret stars as well as Inverness street trial cyclist Duncan Shaw in The Drop and Roll Show.

The Drop and Roll Show, which was developed by MacAskill and Shaw five years ago, will be one of 11 productions being staged in the two-venue site, ten years on from when MacAskill shot to fame while living in the Capital. 

He has since shot films on the Cuillin Ridge on the Isle of Skye, with over 350 million people viewing his work.

MacAskill said: “Edinburgh provided the best backdrop for what became my breakthrough video back in 2009.

"Ten years on it seems like the perfect time to come back with the team for a brand new show in The Meadows. See you in August.”

Inverness-born trial cyclist Duncan Shaw added: “After touring internationally for five years, it’s so exciting to be performing at the world famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
