HELEN DUFF: JUST GO WITH HER
You may be aware of Helen Duff's previous work at the Festival, because she's garnered quite a lot of acclaim with past shows 'Smasher' and 'Vanity Bites Back', the latter achieving a Fringe First nomination.

Her new set will no doubt be of the same high quality as previous outings, so I thought it was about time we had a good chat, even though the subject matter of the new show made me blush a bit – because I'm easily embarrassed, see. Good thing she isn't. Read the interview here.

Helen Duff performs 'Come With Me' at the Pleasance Courtyard from 3-29 Aug.



MADDY ANHOLT: THREE WEEKS LATER...
Maddy Anholt was last seen round here chatting about her previous show 'Diary Of A Dating Addict'. This time the 'dating addict' is 'rent girl', as she returns with a show exploring the challenges of finding a home in the age of unreasonable rents and sky high property prices.

Might the solution to that problem be found in a date? Probably not. Maddy tells her story of life as a member of Generation Rent. Read Maddy's exclusive column here.

Maddy Anholt performs 'Rent Girl' at Gilded Balloon Teviot from 3-29 Aug.

ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses recommends shows at this year's Edinburgh Festival, in handy sets of three.

THREE DANCE SHOWS >>

MIS – All Night Long | Dance Base | 17-28 Jan (pictured)
This sounds to me like the sort of dance piece that people who "don't like dance" might be converted by, because it promises to be lusty and funny, offering up jackass stunts, physical comedy and multimedia elements. Plus, the cast are half naked and wearing not much more than socks and sandals in their publicity shots, which I'm counting as a good thing.

Smother | Zoo Southside | 5-27 Aug
This dance piece is returning to the Fringe after a very successful and acclaimed run in 2015, so you can count on it to be pretty good. It features an ensemble of seven directed by choreographer Andrea Walker, and theme-wise it's on the serious side – addiction, obsession and commitment in the study of a relationship between two young men – offering an interesting juxtaposition of hip-hop and homosexuality, given the historically tense interaction between the two.

Lïnger | Dance Base | 5-21 Aug
This is choreographed by Breandán de Gallaí, former principal dancer in 'Riverdance', who also appears as one of two dancers at opposing ends of their careers. Using photography, film, music, and movement, the show explores Irish gay masculinity and the question of what happens to dancers when they reach the conclusion of their careers. We feel pretty confident that this will be a moving and insightful piece.

THREE HELPINGS OF STAND-UP POETRY >>

Alexis Dubus Verses The Word | Voodoo Rooms | 6-28 Aug

We have been fans of Alexis Dubus for a long time now, ever since we first saw his history of swearing show (he's doing a one-off performance of that this year, if you want to see it) and gave him a ThreeWeeks Editors' Award for it. His "lyrical tales from the road" combine poetry, stand-up and storytelling, and we offer a pretty much 100% guarantee that you will enjoy them.

Dan Simpson – Artificial Ineloquence | Banshee Labyrinth | 6-28 Aug
BBC Fringe Slam finalist Dan Simpson presents a show that focuses on the rise of the robots, screens and machines that influence our modern lives – can humanity survive in a world of deep-learning artificial intelligence? Expect computer-generated jokes, emoji poetry and selfie stick stuff from this proven entertainer.

Stand Up And Slam | Just The Tonic At The Mash House | 4-28 Aug
If you like your spoken word funny and competitive, then this is definitely the show for you, and if you like it, you can go more than once because different stuff will happen each time. Six skilled acts from all around the UK go head to head to win your approval, and the result promises to be hilarious. It's a tried and tested formula that's already won loads of fans, so make sure this is on your list.
