Where do you start at the Edinburgh Fringe? There is SO much comedy! In fact there are so many comedy shows to choose from, it’s baffling to know where to begin. And what if you take a chance on a rubbish show only to find out the next cult hit of the Fringe was just next door?
That’s where we come in. Let us guide you and help you navigate your way through the enormous programme to discover your new favourite comedians.
Ahead of the Fringe, we like to find out a little more about our favourite comedians, and we recommend and review shows throughout August.
Punchline produces shows in Edinburgh and Perth outside the Fringe. So far we’ve had Nish Kumar (8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo), Des Clarke, Nick Helm (BBC’s Uncle and C4’s Loaded), Charlie Baker (Let’s Dance for Comic Relief), Josh Widdicombe (The Last Leg), Roisin Conaty (E4’s Gameface, BBC’s Have I Got News for You), Ivan Brackenbury (BBC’s Hospital People) and Frankie Boyle.
Defining a generation of new classic comedy, Punchline brings you the rising stars in the UK just before they become household names.
