Each year, the Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Awards panel watch every single one of the 500 plus eligible comedy shows at the Fringe and whittles them down to a shortlist of the funniest comedy shows at the festival. 'But what of us Londonites?' we hear you cry. Don't you worry, for those that couldn't make it to Scotland, most of the nominees are bringing their shows to London.

This page will be updated as the 2013 winners and nominees announce dates in our city, and in the meantime, you can already book tickets for the following.

Carl Donnelly – Now That's What I Carl Donnelly! Volume V

James Acaster – Lawnmower

Holy guacamole! James Acaster quizzically examines his love of mariachi music and attempts to clear the name of Yoko Ono in 'Lawnmower'.

Mike Wozniak – Take the Hit

Moustachioed maestro Mike Wozniak – or 'The King of Showbusiness', as he prefers to be called – subtly, and quite brilliantly, subverts the comedy cliché of mother-in-law gags in 'Take the Hit'.

Nick Helm – One Man Mega Myth

In his epic tribute to Evel Knievel, Nick Helm mixes aggression, desperation and crackin' songs. The 'Nick Helm is fucking amazing' chant will get stuck in your head for days.

Seann Walsh – The Lie-In King

Walsh provides expertly crafted observations on drinking culture, hangovers and, well, being lazy in 'The Lie-In King'. He's developed into a talented physical comedian and an ace impressionist.
