By | Published on Wednesday 24 July 2013


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

Beatboxer extraordinaire Beardyman is super successful and cultishly famous these days, and never has much time to spare in August, so don’t miss this opportunity to check him out – an award winning musician and comedian who has won more critical acclaim than I’m able to do justice to by selectively quoting here.
Gilded Balloon Teviot, 15-25 Aug.

Stupid Hair and Skinny Jeans: Ryan McDonnell
Yes, I think it might be stretching things, somewhat, to call this ‘Hairy Comedy’ but I’ve slightly randomly picked this theme and now I’m sticking to it. What this show does have in its favour is Northern Irish comedian Ryan McDonnell, who was described by a former ThreeWeeks reviewer as a “witty and incredibly brave comic”. So he sounds good, doesn’t he?
Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, 1-26 Aug.

Gerardine Coyne: Venus In Fuzz
You might also want to argue with me as to whether ‘fuzz’ constitutes ‘hairy’ or not. What I won’t let you argue with me about is how lovely is the very lovely Gerardine Coyne (she’s very lovely). As one half of Fringe double act The Aspidistras, in previous shows, she’s truly charmed our reviewers with her stylish character comedy, and I’m expecting good things from her in 2013.
Bannermans, 4-23 Aug.
