Every year, thousands of comics bring comedy shows to the internationally known Edinburgh Fringe Festival. But those shows need to be tweaked and refined, honed and perfected...and that's happening at Laugh Train Home. Don't miss this behind-the-scenes unique opportunity to see these Work in Progress shows. This is how live stand-up comedy is put together.

JOSH PUGH: The Changingman(Preview)
What are the things that define us? The clothes we wear? The jobs we do? The people we hate? A show about what Josh reckons identity means. Told through the time he got stuck in a puffer jacket as a child.
