It’s nearly here! The biggest and best comedy festival in the world: the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Most of London’s stand-up community decamp to Scotland for August. If you’re a comedy fan, it’s the place to be for the summer.
We’ve sifted through the comedy section of the (400-page long) Fringe brochure and chosen, quite frankly, a silly number of recommendations. Of course, we haven’t seen any of these shows yet – some could be terrible – but judging by their previous efforts, circuit work or plain old word-of-mouth, these are the acts we’re most excited about.
P.S. We know what you’re thinking. “47 + 17 + 15 + 13 + 12 + 11 + 11 + 10 + 8 + 6 + 5 + 4 + 4 doesn’t equal 74, it equals 163!” Firstly, good maths skills. Secondly, we know. Almost every show is featured in more than one list, so we have actually chosen 74 in total. Trust us.
