Edinburgh Fringe 2013 comedy highlights and recommendations

Our top comedy picks from this year's Edinburgh festival


Whether you're an Edinburgh regular or a festival virgin, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme is always overwhelmingly huge. In 2013, there are close to 1000 comedy shows alone at the Fringe, so it would take you nearly a month and a half to see every single show, and that's not allowing for sleep (or time to acquire various bank loans).

We've rummaged through the comedy section of the Edinburgh fest brochure and made these handy top ten lists to help you pick what to see. Click the pictures below to see each list and get booking.
