ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses helps you navigate the Festival with her Three To See tips. This time three TW favourites from the comedy domain.

Yianni Agisilaou: Pockets of Equality | Banshee Labyrinth | 5-27 Aug (pictured)
It’s a memorable name, so if you’ve already been exposed to the work of this esteemed purveyor of comedy, then I am pretty sure you’ll recall it. If you haven’t been, then it’s time, because Yianni is completely awesome. So awesome that we gave him an award that time, and we have never once regretted it. His show this year is inspired by an issue close to my heart – the fact that they don’t put proper bloomin’ pockets in women’s clothes – so I am not going to miss this one.

Ian Smith – Snowflake | Underbelly Med Quad | 2-27 Aug
The trouble with a name like Ian Smith, on the other hand, is that it doesn’t quite stand out here in the UK as much as something like Yianni Agisilaou. However, this comedian stands out when it comes to what our reviewers think of him because they have never, ever said a bad word about him, and he’s always getting top starred critiques. Don’t think twice about it, just book tickets now, I guarantee it will be a good night.

Michael Legge – Jerk | The Stand Comedy Club 2 | 3-27 Aug
Another deserving ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award-winner, the brilliant Michael Legge, who’ll be wondering aloud about something I often wonder aloud about myself, given all the daily horrors, mini horrors and micro horrors going on in the world: Why aren’t people more ashamed of themselves? Sounds like he’ll be demanding answers, though, so maybe do some preparation before you go.
