Best hasn’t slept properly in years, which is why she feels like a ghost and looks like a shoe...

A whip-smart, animated work in progress for anyone who’s ever stared wild-eyed at a ceiling or stood very still in their kitchen...

A work in progress show from Funny Women Award winner. As seen on BBC, Channel 4, Netflix, Sky Arts and Radio 4. ‘Hilarious’ (Huffington Post). ‘Inspired’ (Telegraph).

James Barr: Thirst Trap

James Barr, as seen asking Justin Bieber about his penis (MTV, host of award-winning comedy podcast A Gay and A NonGay) in a hilarious and increasingly desperate attempt to find a boyfriend. You'll never look at an avocado the same way again.

2019 dating is a disaster. James Tinder-style swipes the audience to meet ’The One’; it could be you!

'Rip-roaringly funny and ridiculously relatable' (Heat). 'A riotous no-holds-barred guide to 21st century dating as a gay man. Unapologetically honest and brilliantly hilarious, an absolute triumph' (Sun).

Stevie Martin (WIP)

Stevie Martin (as seen on Channel 4's Damned, FX's Breeders and Dave's Dave Talks) is working up a new show for the Fringe. It's a lovely bit of business involving sketches, talking and absolute bangers. For anyone who enjoys their content red hot (and their bangers stone cold).

Tom & Ollie: SPAIN

TOM & OLLIE: SPAIN

"Genuinely hilarious" (Inter:Mission) two-person double-act Tom & Ollie present their new sketch fiesta. 'Spain' is a laugh armada of comedy tapas* inspired by the likes of Peter Serafinowicz, 'The Day Today' and Mitchell & Webb, in which you will learn literally nothing about the nation of Spain. We considered calling the show Tom & Olé but thought better of it.

Winner: Chortle Student Award (2016), Finalists: Leicester Square Sketch Off (2017)

“Completely deserved the resounding applause!” ***** (Epigram)

“The sheer comic invention of it is worth the entry price alone” (ShortCom)

Nick Elleray: Big Nick Energy

They say a leopard can't change his spots. Well, maybe he doesn't need to. Maybe he's fine as he is. Why would you ask him to do that? No, he's not being defensive, he just thinks it's weird that you would even ask him to - no, he's NOT angry. He's not. He just wasn't expecting to be attacked like this. Right. Well, OK. I guess we've all learnt something today. Jesus.

'Quality downbeat comedy' Chortle.

Watch in awe as a man in a suit demonstrates his mastery of every genre of comedy.

Puns? I've got 'em. Satire? Sure! Observational comedy? Indubitably buddy. A wide range of miscellaneous comedic genres in which the tropes and cliches of comedy are deconstructed and subverted for the audience's amusement? Well yes, that's basically the premise of the show.

'A droll, witty and very self-conscious deconstruction of comedy... Expect to see more of him' (Chortle).

No tricks. No gimmicks. No plan. Just an hour in my company as we reach the end. Things will be over soon. We're nearly there everyone! Great work. But before we go, I'm making one last attempt to find connection in the here and now, to snuffle out any remaining joy in this rapidly crumbling world, before it's too late.

Lorna Shaw: Shaw and Order

An Edinburgh preview from a true crime fanatic.

Critically-acclaimed comedian Lorna Shaw (Plebs, Newsjack) lays down the law in this brand new hour of stand-up and storytelling. While the world is in the grip of a true crime 'boom', Lorna is on hold to the council. Caught in the midst of her own hilarious true crime epic she is forced to fight for justice with every fibre of her only suit jacket. A show about battling bureaucracy, breaking laws and bucking the system.

"Expect off-beat brilliance” **** (The Times).

"Some of the sharpest, most imaginative new writing” (Guardian).

“Best Jokes of the Fringe 2017” (Evening Standard).

Ridiculously self-aware middle-class dreamer Flora does a show about trying and failing to be creative in the big city. Is she an epic Romantic vagabond or just an entitled absolute pr*ck? She's chasing a dream, but the chase might be much, much funnier. Debut hour from the Get Up-Stand Up 2019 finalist. 'A promising comedian' (Guardian) with 'well-tuned political antennae' (Chortle).

Two comedians. Two half hours. One hour show (maths!).

Briony Redman - Briony is indecisive and she has a comedy show to write for August. Come find out what she'll have written so far. Mystery! Action! A Mountain Lion! may or may not feature in this show. 

Paul Foxcroft - Paul's staring down the barrel of 40 and trying to work out what the last new idea he'll accept is going to be. When is he supposed to become a conservative and can it be avoided? Are there any simple answers out there that aren't bullshit? Let's find out at a team. Full disclosure, there's probably going to be an extended joke about toilets.
