The Showcase Show (EdCom & Dick The Horse)

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

Whipping up a selection of the best comedy acts of the Festival into a delicious bite-sized chunk, ‘The Showcase Show’ returns for its eighth triumphant year. Promising “the best and brightest comics”, it offers several helpings of different performers previewing samples from their shows, so it’s a brilliant way to discover new talent and decide which shows to see later on in the day. They say variety is the spice of life, and with a different line-up every day, you can go back again and again. It does mean, however, that the success of each show depends on who is performing on each specific day. Judging by today, though, it’s worth the risk. A perfect lunchtime treat.

Pleasance Courtyard, 5 – 27 Aug, 1.10pm (2.10pm), £7.00- £9.50, fpp151.
