The Noise Next Door: Really, Really, Good Afternoon Show (At Sea) @ Gilded Balloon Teviot- Debating Hall

Aug 1 @ 3:45 pm – 4:45 pm
Scott Gibson: Anywhere but Here @ Gilded Balloon Teviot- Billard Room

The winner of the Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer Scott Gibson is back with not one but two shows, presenting Tales from the Battlefield, as well. Expect expert storytelling and brutal honesty from the fast-rising Scot. Tipping comics for the top is fraught with egg-on-face risk but this is a banker of a bet.

Lazy Susan: Forgive Me, Mother! @ Assembly George Square Theatre: The Box
Aug 1 @ 4:20 pm – 5:20 pm
Lazy Susan: Forgive Me, Mother! @ Assembly George Square Theatre: The Box

Critically-acclaimed sketches from the pair behind delightfully dotty Radio 4 series, The East Coast Listening Post. No word yet on whether Celeste Dring’s hilarious take on Beatrice from The Windsors will be popping in to steal the show.

William Andrews: Willy @ Pleasance Courtyard- Bunker One
Aug 1 @ 4:45 pm – 5:45 pm
William Andrews: Willy @ Pleasance Courtyard- Bunker One

Back in the Noughties, William Andrews made waves on the comedy circuit with his idiot-savant character, Tony Carter. And then he was in Alan Partridge and then the second series of Broadchurch. And then … nothing for a while except his gloriously obtuse blog. What can we expect on his stand-up return? Odd seems a good bet.

Zoe Lyons: Entry Level Human @ Gilded Balloon Teviot
Aug 1 @ 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm
Zoe Lyons: Entry Level Human @ Gilded Balloon Teviot

A TV and radio regular, the award-winning comic Zoe Lyons turns her sights on the pernicious effects of technology. While Elon Musk predicts that AI will end the human race, Zoe is more concerned about the deleterious effects of selfie culture.

 

Natalie Palamides: Nate @ Pleasance Courtyard- Beside
Aug 1 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Natalie Palamides: Nate @ Pleasance Courtyard- Beside

Last year Natalie Palamides, an American producer, actor, voice over artist and comic was named the Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer for her egg-based show, Laid. Likely to be just as imaginative, Nate examines just how hard it is to be a man in the early 21st century.

Rose Matafeo: Horndog @ Pleasance Courtyard- Pleasance Above
Aug 1 @ 6:20 pm – 7:20 pm
Rose Matafeo: Horndog @ Pleasance Courtyard- Pleasance Above

Having started her stand-up career in her native New Zealand at the age of fifteen, Rose Matafeo is, at the age of 26, a stage veteran.
For Horndog, her third Fringe show, she examines that evergreen comedy topic: horniness. Expect stand-up, sketch and mid-twenties angst.

Jay Lafferty: Wheesht! @ Gilded Balloon Teviot- The Turret
Aug 1 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Jay Lafferty: Wheesht! @ Gilded Balloon Teviot- The Turret

The Renaissance woman of Scottish comedy, Jay Lafferty is a stand-up, producer, writer and director who has been rising through the ranks since 2005. Her comedy has been described as ‘chocolate-covered grenades’ and this show looks at the unexpected consequences of keeping her gob shut.

Marcus Brigstocke: Devil May Care @ Pleasance Courtyard- Pleasance Beyond
Aug 1 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Marcus Brigstocke: Devil May Care @ Pleasance Courtyard- Pleasance Beyond

Marcus Brigstocke has had a portfolio career including stand-up, musicals, a book, a spell as P.T. Barnum, the world’s greatest showman, and, most recently, the face of Experian, the financial rating company. In this show he tries to establish the difference between good and bad. Philosophers have debated this for centuries. Brigstocke is aiming for answers in an hour.

Stuart Mitchell: Gordon Ramsay’s Karma Café @ Gilded Balloon Teviot- Balcony
Aug 1 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Stuart Mitchell: Gordon Ramsay's Karma Café @ Gilded Balloon Teviot- Balcony

In another life, Stuart Mitchell used to work for Gordon Brown at the Treasury. Finance’s loss is comedy’s gain as the stand-up returns to the Fringe with a new hour of confessional comedy which links the famous chef and high finance.

Terry Alderton: The Musical @ Assembly George Square Studios- One
Aug 1 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Terry Alderton: The Musical @ Assembly George Square Studios- One

Not many people can please both The Sun, who named Terry Alderton their Comedian of the Year in 2010, and comic cognoscenti such as Frank Skinner and Eddie Izzard. Never one to do what is expected, the former EastEnders actor and, er, CIA employee returns to Edinburgh with a career retrospective in the form of a musical, complete with original music by Grammy award nominee Owen Parker.

Chris McCausland: Speaky Blinder @ Underbelly Bistro Square- Buttercup
Aug 1 @ 6:35 pm – 7:35 pm
Chris McCausland: Speaky Blinder @ Underbelly Bistro Square- Buttercup

If comedy awards were doled out on the basis of show titles alone, Chris McCausland would surely be a winner this year. An hereditary eye disease left him blind in his twenties, but not being able to see his audience has proved no impediment to his comedy career and Chris smashed an appearance on Live at the Apollo earlier this year.

Russell Howard: Work in Progress @ Assembly George Square Studios- Three
Aug 1 @ 6:35 pm – 7:35 pm
Russell Howard: Work in Progress @ Assembly George Square Studios- Three

One of the country’s most popular comics, this is a rare chance to see Russell Howard in a venue which isn’t an enormodome. New ideas and new routines are promised. Presumably delivered with Russell’s usual mix of good natured aplomb and wide-eyed exasperation.

Elf Lyons: ChiffChaff @ Pleasance Dome- JackDome
Aug 1 @ 6:50 pm – 7:50 pm
Elf Lyons: ChiffChaff @ Pleasance Dome- JackDome

Elf Lyons is busy. When not clowning around on stage, she might be writing an article on polyamorous relationships for The Guardian or contributing to a book on economics with her father. For this show, she is dissecting our fiscal situation through the mediums of songs about Japan and tap-dancing about South Korea.

Mark Watson: The Infinite Show @ Pleasance Courtyard- Forth
Aug 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Mark Watson: The Infinite Show @ Pleasance Courtyard- Forth

Last year, starvation and chest pains curtailed Mark Watson’s stay on Bear Grylls’ Celebrity Island. But what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, doesn’t it? One of comedy’s thinnest stand-ups relates what he learned from the experience and explores notions of empathy, while you can get a peek at next year’s show in his work-in-progress hour at The Stand.

Nina Conti is Monkey @ Underbelly Bistro Square- McEwan Hall
Aug 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Nina Conti is Monkey @ Underbelly Bistro Square- McEwan Hall

For years, Nina Conti has played the organ grinder to Monkey, her little ventriloquist’s puppet. What happens when the roles are reversed and Nina becomes the monkey? Over the last few years, Ms Conti has given new life to the concept of ventriloquism, and this show looks to push those definitions further.

David O’Doherty: You Have to Laugh @ Assembly George Square Theatre: The Theatre
Aug 1 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
David O'Doherty: You Have to Laugh @ Assembly George Square Theatre: The Theatre

A charming sense of underachievement runs through David O’Doherty’s comedy, manifesting itself in a bio that claims he is the least famous person ever to have hosted an episode of Nevermind the Buzzcocks. If you’ve ever seen him perform before, you’ll know that’s nonsense. O’Doherty’s whimsical chat and quirky songs, played on a crap keyboard, are irresistible.

Alice Fraser: Ethos @ Underbelly Bistro Square
Aug 1 @ 7:55 pm – 8:55 pm
Alice Fraser: Ethos @ Underbelly Bistro Square

What does it mean to be human in an age of increasingly powerful artificial intelligence? See the funny side of the singularity before we are all terminated by our toasters. A former lawyer, Alice Fraser mixes the silly with the cerebral.

Kiri Pritchard-Mclean: Victim, Complex @ Pleasance Courtyard- Bunker Two
Aug 1 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Kiri Pritchard-Mclean: Victim, Complex @ Pleasance Courtyard- Bunker Two

As well as four live shows of All Killa no Filla – a cult podcast about the lives of serial killers – Kiri Pritchard-Mclean returns to the Fringe with her third full-length stand-up show. Her comedy has been described as passionate and raw and in this show, she will be directing her ire on the connections between victims, women, love and lies.

Tom Houghton: The Honourable Tom Houghton @ Pleasance Dome- JackDome
Aug 1 @ 8:10 pm – 9:10 pm
Tom Houghton: The Honourable Tom Houghton @ Pleasance Dome- JackDome

Move over Miles Jupp, there’s a new posh boy in Comicville. Tom’s Dad used to run the UK’s armed forces and has just been inducted into the House of Lords. By contrast, Tom Houghton has been sacked from Wetherspoons twice. All of which makes for entertaining comedy but, one imagines, awkward family lunches.

John Kearns: Don’t Worry They’re Here @ Pleasance Dome- QueenDome
Aug 1 @ 8:20 pm – 9:20 pm
John Kearns: Don't Worry They're Here @ Pleasance Dome- QueenDome

Returning to the Fringe with last year’s critically acclaimed show, John Kearns is the only comic to have won the Best Newcomer and Best Show Edinburgh Comedy Awards in consecutive years. Find out why with Don’t Worry They’re Here, a show which has been variously described as ‘heart-warming’, ‘hilarious’ and ‘emotional’, a regrettably rare combo in comedy.

Reginald D. Hunter: An American Facing the Beast and Niggas @ Pleasance at EICC- Pentland Theatre
Aug 1 @ 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Reginald D. Hunter: An American Facing the Beast and Niggas @ Pleasance at EICC- Pentland Theatre

Race, sexuality, love and the sometimes uneasy relationship between all three are grist to Reginald D. Hunter’s abiding comedy mill.
The American comic Reginald D. Hunter has been building an audience at the Fringe for twenty years and shows no sign of losing his edge.

Andrew Maxwell: Shake A Leg @ Assembly George Square Theatre: The Theatre
Aug 1 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Andrew Maxwell: Shake A Leg @ Assembly George Square Theatre: The Theatre

We imagine that Andrew Maxwell was the sort of cheeky but charming school pupil who inspired report cards along the lines of ‘Andrew will either do very well. Or very, very badly’. Fortunately for us, his laidback storytelling and well developed sense of mischief have served him well at the Fringe and on TV stations all over the world.

Felicity Ward: Busting A Nut @ Pleasance Courtyard- Pleasance Above
Aug 1 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Felicity Ward: Busting A Nut @ Pleasance Courtyard- Pleasance Above

Back at the Fringe after a two-year break, the Australian comic Felicity Ward is full to leaking point with new material. Not that she has been slacking. Podcasts, Radio 4 series Channel 4 Blaps, mental health advocacy, yoga and, oh yeah, getting married have kept her busy.

Jack Docherty: Miekelson and McGlashan – Serious Men @ Gilded Balloon at the Museum
Aug 1 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Jack Docherty: Miekelson and McGlashan - Serious Men @ Gilded Balloon at the Museum

Luisa Omielan: Politics for Bitches @ Gilded Balloon Teviot- Debating Hall
Aug 1 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Luisa Omielan: Politics for Bitches @ Gilded Balloon Teviot- Debating Hall

Luisa Omielan’s two stand-up shows – What Would Beyoncé Do? and Am I Right Ladies?! – were billed as party comedies. Or rather PARRTYY!! comedies.

A quick glance at Luisa’s Twitter feed reveals that party politics have been rather more on her mind recently. Expect controversial opnions on the NHS and cannabis legalisation and a distinctly darker bent, as she works through the death of her mother.

With a prime slot at Gilded Balloon this year, we’re expecting big things.

Ed Night: An Aesthetic @ Pleasance Courtyard- Bunker Two
Aug 1 @ 9:15 pm – 10:15 pm
Ed Night: An Aesthetic @ Pleasance Courtyard- Bunker Two

After watching last year’s Fringe show, one critic reckoned that ‘ Ed Night stands at the dawn of the new age of stand-up’. When not wowing comedy critics, Gen Z Ed is acting in short films, writing for BBC Radio 4’s Newsjack and starring in BBC Radio 1’s Ed and Lauren Get On.

Janeane Garofalo: Put a Pin in That @ Gilded Balloon Teviot- Wine Bar
Aug 1 @ 9:15 pm – 10:15 pm
Janeane Garofalo: Put a Pin in That @ Gilded Balloon Teviot- Wine Bar

The prolific comic, actor, peace activist and ‘self-confessed’ botox fan Janeane Garofalo is one of the few comics to be papped by the Daily Mail for showing off her ‘fuller lips’. Exactly the sort of body-shaming, petty press intrusion that her comedy rips to pieces.

Jayde Adams: The Divine Ms. Jayde @ Pleasance Courtyard- Pleasance Two
Aug 1 @ 9:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Jayde Adams: The Divine Ms. Jayde @ Pleasance Courtyard- Pleasance Two

No less an authority than Dawn French has said that, ‘Jayde Adams is the third funniest woman in the world’. The Scottish Sun went further, awarding her their Best Show of Edinburgh Fringe 2017 gong. This year, she has gone full diva with garish gowns, acerbic charm and show-stopping music.

The Tape Face Show @ Pleasance Courtyard- The Grand
Aug 1 @ 9:40 pm – 10:40 pm
The Tape Face Show @ Pleasance Courtyard- The Grand

Who could have predicted that a Kiwi busker turned mime artist would end up with a Vegas residency? And it’s all thanks to the beguiling wit and innocence of Sam Wills’ act. Taking a break from his residency at Harrah’s, Tape Face returns to Edinburgh with an all-new show.

Adam Riches is The Lone Dueller @ Plesance Dome: QueenDome
Aug 1 @ 9:45 pm – 10:45 pm
Adam Riches is The Lone Dueller @ Plesance Dome: QueenDome

The Edinburgh Comedy Award winner returns with a brand-new show unlike anything else. He’s a shamed cavalryman turned blade-for-hire who sets out to free the townsfolk from tyranny and oppression. Only problem is, there is no tyranny or oppression, so he just hangs around forests fighting himself. Expect swords. Expect sex. Expect swords having sex. (Don’t expect that).

Previous Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Adam Riches looks set to be a busy man this August as he performs three shows. Famed for his character comedy, he plays a washed-up sports coach, a lone dueller and the suspiciously nice guy you meet after a long-term relationship. Be afraid.

Suzi Ruffell: Nocturnal @ Pleasance Courtyard- Pleasance Below
Aug 1 @ 9:45 pm – 10:45 pm
Suzi Ruffell: Nocturnal @ Pleasance Courtyard- Pleasance Below

Anxiety seems to be increasingly common and Suzi Ruffell aims to find out why. In her case, everything from global human rights to her cat’s quality of life are nagging away at her. When not feeling an unspecified dread, the Portsmouth-born comic is busy knocking out material for The Last Leg, Mock The Week and 8 Out Of 10 Cats.

Aug 2 @ 2:10 pm – 11:24 am
Adam Riches is The Guy Who... @ Underbelly Cowgate: Cow Café

…you meet right after you come out of a long-term relationship. He has a nice smile, an easy manner and no car. The Edinburgh Comedy Award winner makes a rare appearance under a belly and an even rarer appearance in the afternoon with this intimate look at one of the planet’s most deliberate men. As sensitive as soap and twice as slippery. Beware. Be very, very aware.

Previous Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Adam Richies looks set to be a busy man this August as he performs three shows. Famed for his character comedy, he plays a washed-up sports coach, a lone dueller and the suspiciously nice guy you meet after a long-term relationship. Be afraid.

Aug 2 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Tony Law: A Lost Show @ Monkey Barrel Comedy Club- Monkey Barrel One

The mighty Canadian comic Tony Law is back with another shambling, absurdist show. Described as an effort to bring healing and comfort to the audience, this hour will no doubt provide upbeat nonsense aplenty as well.

Back at the Fringe for the first time in 20 years, the Essex comic Jim Tavaré is best known for his work on The Sketch Show and his role in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. This new show has been inspired by a car accident that left him with a long list of broken bones. Make your own gags about his funny bone remaining intact.

Aug 2 @ 4:20 pm – 5:20 pm
Lazy Susan: Forgive Me, Mother! @ Assembly George Square Theatre: The Box

Aug 2 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Larry Dean: Bampot @ The Big Cave @ The Hive- Assembly Checkpoint

Described on his Twitter as a ‘Glaswegian “comedian” and “vagina dodger”, Larry Dean’s charisma, conversational style and autobiographical approach to comedy have won him plenty of awards and many more fans. It will be no surprise if we all see a lot more of Larry.

Helen Lederer: I Might As Well Say It @ Underbelly Bistro Square- Jersey
Aug 2 @ 5:05 pm – 6:05 pm
Helen Lederer: I Might As Well Say It @ Underbelly Bistro Square- Jersey

The Young Ones, Naked Video, Bottom, Ab Fab and, er, Celebrity Big Brother. Leaving aside the last of these, Helen Lederer has been an ace face on the British comedy scene since she first set off on stage at The Comedy Store in the Eighties. She barrels into Edinburgh with a stand-up hour, plus a free chat show from the 21-25th at the Laughing Horse.
