Punchline’s Top 10 Comedy Shows for the 2014 Fringe

13 Jun

The Edinburgh Fringe is famous for its vast variety of performers taking to the stage in just one month, so how could we possibly narrow it down to 10? Well, here it is, Punchline’s Top 10 shows for the 2014 Fringe:

1. Bridget Christie: An Ungrateful Woman

Last year’s big winner of the Edinburgh Comedy Award. Grab a coffee instead of a pint (it’s on at 11am), and spend an hour with one of the funniest and most life-affirming comedians on the Fringe. Buy tickets here

2. Cardinal Burns

No doubt destined for greatness. You may have seen their TV series but they are EVEN BETTER live. Their off-the-wall and increasingly dark shows have always been popular at the Edinburgh Fringe so make sure to catch them before they get too big for it! Buy tickets here

3. Lucy Beaumont: We Can Twerk It Out

We’re particularly excited about Lucy’s debut show at the Fringe this year. She has won a plethora of awards including the BBC New Comedy Award. Like a kitten with really sharp claws. Buy tickets here

4. Felicity Ward: The Iceberg

We’ve been banging on about Felicity for years and she continuously gets better and better. Outrageously hilarious stories and shriek-inducing observations, definitely a hot ticket this year. Buy tickets here

5. James Acaster: Recognise

Whimsical whilst wearing knitwear, James Acaster is a fantastic act. He weaves make-believe tales in with bizarre refrences and of course, is a two-time runner up for the Edinburgh Comedy Award. Buy tickets here

6. Susan Calman: Lady Like

A favourite on Radio 4 and a loveable story-teller who everyone will immediately warm to.  Calman is a sure fire, strong candidate to please everybody. Buy tickets here

7. Abandoman: Hot Desk

So slick you’ll think it’s all been planned before the show. But it can’t be! Abandoman will enchant you with improvised rap – go and find out for yourselves. Buy tickets here

8. Lloyd Langford: Old Fashioned

Slightly grumpy, very silly and one to watch, expect childish yet sincerely clever humour from Lloyd Langford. Buy tickets here

9. Dave Griffiths: C U in Court

Something a bit different – listen to Dave’s engrossing story of taking on the big boys. It’s being made into a feature film so here’s your chance to catch it live. Buy tickets here

10. Nina Conti: Work in Progress

Laugh out loud funny, Nina and Monk return to Edinburgh for a delightful and outrageously rude show. You’ll love it. Buy tickets here

We’re also looking forward to seeing David Trent, Tiernan Douieb, Luke McQueen, Hennessy & FriendsEleanor Morton and Ellie White.

We have already got our tickets for Fringe heroes Will Adamsdale, Adam Riches and Nick Helm!

Look out for our Guide to the Free Fringe coming soon, and we will let you know about new shows as soon as we discover them throughout the Fringe.
