Amy Howerska and Luke Benson - T1754305591

With a family consisting of trained killers and extreme sports idiots, comedy is not "brave" compared to going home for Christmas for rising comedy star Amy Howerska. Luke Benson, the Geordie giant, looks at the expectations of society, self-help, aggrandisement, how best to deal with the whole caper and whether he's managing at all.

Frisky and Mannish - T0986509674

Impossible to describe and just as difficult to believe, Frisky and Mannish’s twisted take on popular music will leave you wondering how you can ever listen to songs again without hearing the real truth of those lyrics. Their unique style of tuneful cabaret bears comparison to the greats, yet never mimics them. "Pure exhilarating brilliance from start to finish... If you don’t enjoy Frisky & Mannish, you have no soul." Chortle.co.uk

Richard Herring and Tom Wrigglesworth - T01408203741

RICHARD HERRING (Edinburgh Preview) Richard Herring is a prolific producer of solo stand-up shows at the Edinburgh Festival, including such gems as Talking Cock, Oh, Fuck, I’m 40!, The Headmaster’s Son and, last year’s acclaimed hit, Hitler Moustache. All have been hugely well received and this year he revisits an old show from 2001 with Christ On A Bike: The Second Coming. "Herring simply improves with age" The List. TOM WRIGGLESWORTH (Edinburgh Preview) Nominated for the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Award last year, Tom Wrigglesworth has become quickly recognized for his intricate storytelling interspersed with hilarious asides. Expect plenty of digressions skilfully weaved in and out of the narrative to make a satisfying and uplifting show. "Magical storytelling... a rare talent...hysterical and accomplished" Time Out

Hal Cruttenden and Andrew Lawrence - T01721368996

HAL CRUTTENDEN (Stand Up Show) If any comic epitomises the well-meaning but ineffectual Guardianista class, it’s Hal Cruttenden. Living a comfortable Middle England life, but dogged by liberal guilt, his set covers his angst about doing the right thing for his family and for society - even if the two aims aren’t easily squared. 'Immensely satisfying.’ The Stage. ANDREW LAWRENCE (Edinburgh Preview) Andrew Lawrence is a miserable nihilist, full of bitter, twisted hatred for life itself, as well as everyone he has the misfortune to encounter in its wretched progress. This is no show for the easily offended, and quite possibly not for the quite difficult to offend either. "Lawrence packs more laughs into one of his ninety second rants than most comics manage in half an hour." The Scotsman

Pappy's and Rob Deering - T1733433680

PAPPY’S (Edinburgh Preview) Pappy’s have taken the Edinburgh Festival by storm over the last few years with their unique combination of slapstick, sketches and general buffoonery. Here they are again at the Tobacco Factory previewing their latest collection of loose-themed physical comedy and sketches. "If you like your comedy light, frothy and supremely daft, these bright-eyed boys are experts...a show that pairs clever, witty sketches with brilliant clowning. The Metro. ROB DEERING (Edinburgh Preview) Rob Deering and his guitar - the finest double act working in Britain today - combine razor-sharp stand-up with incredible flights of musicianship to create the ultimate Rob Deering experience. He's not so much a one man band as a one man comedy Woodstock. ‘Massively engaging intelligent comic offering a cracking mix of songs and silliness’ The Guardian

Simon Evans and Pete Johansson - T2042082741

SIMON EVANS (Edinburgh Preview) Probably the most judgmental comedian on the circuit, Simon Evans has the haughty air of a tweed-clad landowner, settling into his battered but comfortable leather armchair, fine cognac in hand, ready to share his upper-middle-class prejudices with the other members of his exclusive gentleman's club. "Demonically Dry" Metro. "Rich, complex comedy" Chortle.co.uk . PETE JOHANSSON (Edinburgh Preview) Canadian Pete Johannson is assured, relaxed, open and gently hilarious. This is observational, anecdotal, autobiographical comedy at its very original best. He has twenty years of experience behind him and that wealth of experience certainly shines through every minute he is on stage. "Laughter fest...Hilarious" The List

Alun Cochrane and Newsrevue - T906402918

"A master storyteller, holding the audience before dropping an exploding but simple punchline..." The Metro. NEWSREVUE ((Edinburgh Preview) NewsRevue, the world's longest running live comedy show (Guinness World Records), is a fast-moving mix of sketches and songs. NewsRevue propels you through the world's news and current events at breakneck pace - all-kicking, idol-burning comedy, created by a crack team of writers and actors. "Masters of their art" The Stage

Sarah Millican and Paul Sinha - T01434621773

SARAH MILLICAN (Edinburgh Preview) Star of Live at The Apollo and Have I Got News For You, Sarah Millican pops in to try out loads of new stuff for her forthcoming Edinburgh show and tour. She will bring jokes if you bring laughs. "Her laughter rate is exceptional" The Scotsman "She can make a room rock with laughter" The Guardian. PAUL SINHA (Edinburgh Preview) Paul Sinha has spent much of the previous decade garnering rave reviews for his self-deprecating tales of his life as a GP, lovelorn gay bachelor, quiz fanatic and social coward. This year, he doesn’t want to discuss turning forty, because he has bigger fish to fry. A racist called him a racist. Paul would like to fight back. ‘A triumph...explosive punchlines and laser guided political asides.’ Independent On Sunday

Ian Stone and John Gordillo - T1482811052

IAN STONE (Stand Up Show) Clearly a deft and accomplished stand-up, Ian Stone's intelligent and finely-tuned observational routine is consistently amusing, sharply written and peppered with smart topical asides. Ranked amongst the top ten stand-ups in Britain by The Independent, he is one of the most talented acts on the circuit. "It is the sheer quantity of funny material that really impresses" The List JOHN GORDILLO (Edinburgh Preview) John Gordillo is an inspiration, a consummate performer with an amazing talent, passion and intellect. If you are after cheap, silly laughs then you’d best avoid, but if you want intelligent, moving comedy with a point, then you cannot afford to miss. "A grown-up comic who combines emotional intimacy with high-quality gags." The Guardian

BRENDON BURNS (Edinburgh Preview) - For almost two decades, award-winning Brendon Burns has stormed audiences the world over. His stage presence is electric, his material provocative and his insight surprisingly subtle. Brendon uses his confrontational and up-front style of comedy to capture his audience with a proverbial slap in the face. "Abrasive but hilarious... demented brilliance." Sunday Times. STEPHEN GRANT (Edinburgh Preview) Stephen Grant possesses an energy and intellect, which combined make for dynamite comedy. His speed and dynamism create a magical energy which has audiences rapt and hanging on his every word. "He’s famously pedantic, relentlessly logical and with the kind of comedy vision that can see round corners... you’re never more than 15 seconds away from a really good laugh" Chortle.co.uk
