This week's line up is:
Hal Cruttenden: Chubster
Hal’s literally filled our screens in the last few years on such shows as Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News For You, The Apprentice: You’re Fired and The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice. He’s also recorded two series of his sitcom Hal for BBC Radio 4. Now he’s back at Edinburgh with a brand-new show, the title of which, Chubster, was chosen by his charming daughters. Hal is now on a diet. 'He had the audience in stitches' ***** (Daily Record). 'An absolute joy to watch' **** (Scotsman).
Chris McCausland: Speaky Blinder
Following a stonking set on Live at the Apollo 2018! ***** (FringeGuru.com). One of the UK's top stand-ups returns! He's blind. He's a dad. He's a husband. He's third in command. He'll speaky about all of that, and loads more. Chris has long been one of the top headliners in the country, so you'll definitely be in safe hands! Unless he offers to drive you home. 'Proper stand-up, honest, straightforward, balls-out funny' (Chortle.co.uk). 'He paints us pictures with fantastical words and images... it's almost impossible not to like him' (ThreeWeeks).
