James Acaster – Recognise

  • Critics choice

James Acaster is a true Time Out fave. His blissfully funny understated stand-up sucks you into his minute, quizzical world where he picks apart seemingly insignificant details. 'Recognise' is his fourth solo show, and his third to bag a Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination. It's beautifully crafted, with Acaster posing as an undercover cop only performing stand-up because 'the gigs keep rolling in'. Superb stuff.

Funz and Gamez

  • Critics choice

The biggest joke of ‘Funz and Gamez’ – which won the Panel Prize at the 2014 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards – is that this chaotic, gloriously silly show is for kids. It’s billed as a children’s show, but the grown-ups in the audience have the most ‘funz’. Not that the youngsters aren’t, they’re having a blast. They’re also crucial to the show’s success – the children are the punchline. Phil Ellis is the mastermind behind the show. He poses as a

Adam Riches – Adam of the Riches

  • Critics choice

Superbly silly character comic Adam Riches – 2011’s Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award-winner – is back with his first solo show since winning the gong, ‘Adam of the Riches’. Luckily, it’s another triumph of cunningly crafted, high-energy character comedy that’s big on laughs. The characters themselves – like his ‘gravel-sweating’ interpretation of Sean Bean – are big, bold and stupid. But it’s when Riches begins his trademark audience participation that
