About

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.

We are taking a little break from live production while we concentrate on Leith Comedy Festival, so head over there or @leithcomedyfest on social media to get your live comedy fix.
 
 
 
 
Punchline is run by one of the comedy industry’s finest behind-the-scenes leading ladies, Rosalind Romer. Edinburgh born and bred, the former Perrier judge has run the Edinburgh Comedy Awards and been in charge of the likes of Jimmy Carr’s tours, so you can rest assured that Punchline knows its comedy.
