ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses recommends comedy shows at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Christian O’Connell: This Is 13
It sounds like a promising premise for a show; Christian O’Connell is in a race against time to complete a list of dreams he put together when he was thirteen years old. Which includes dating his eighties heartthrob and challenging a pensioner BMX champion to a competition. Of course, O’Connell is an award winning breakfast show DJ, so chances are you’ve already heard of him. You might even already have your tickets. My job here is done.
Underbelly Bristo Square, 31 Jul-20 Aug, 8.40pm.

Christian Reilly: Songs Of Praise (pictured)
We gave Christian Reilly a 4/5 review for his 2012 show ‘This Is Not A Love Song’, so I’d expect good things from his latest set. And that’s not the only reason why. A former backing band member for Rich Hall’s Otis Lee Crenshaw and podcast colleague of Richard Herring, his hysterical musical stylings have won the acclaim of lots of different critics, and fellow comedians alike.
The Dram House, 3-24 Aug, 6.00pm.

Christian Schulte-Loh: Attack Of The 50 Foot German Comedian
Make no mistake, Christian Schulte-Loh is a German Comedian. It’s stamped across his publicity photo. Though I should say I’m more sceptical about him actually being 50 feet high. There seem to be quite a lot of acclaimed German comedians at the Fringe these days, so I guess I should see at least one this Festival (time is tight for us ThreeWeeks editors remember), and the word-of-mouth on this one is pretty compelling.
Base Nightclub, 3-24 Aug (not 13, 20), 5.00pm.
