Three recommended shows to see on Wednesday 8 Aug – every one a former ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award winner…

Ian Smith: Craft | Underbelly Bristo Square | 5.15pm
Every Festival we present our ThreeWeeks Editors’ Awards at the close of the Fringe to the ten shows and performers who we think made that year’s festivities extra special. Many former winners are back in Edinburgh this August, including Ian Smith, an excellent comedian whose shows over the years have prompted our reviewers to use words and phrases like “beautiful”, “funny”, “funniest”, “skilful”, “stylish”, “satisfying”, “hugely entertaining”, “perfectly executed”, “endearing” and “some of the finest granite material on the circuit”. Go see this year’s show ‘Craft’!

Yianni Agisilaou: I, Human | Pleasance Dome | 9.40pm
We handed Yianni one of our ThreeWeeks Editors’ Awards back in 2013 and he has only continued to impress the TW team with his Edinburgh shows since then. Among the phrases employed by ThreeWeeks reviewers for Yianni’s shows are: “accomplished and charming”, “vivacious, witty and intelligent”, “funny and informative” and a “bloody nice bloke”.

zazUtinany | Underbelly Bristo Square | 10.35pm
And one more ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award winner from the comedy strand of the Festival, though this time on the sketch and character side of the genre. zazU first impressed us in 2014, while we handed them their award in 2016. They are back for a short run at this year’s Fringe.
