We can’t contain our excitement any longer, it’s time to reveal the exciting names who’ll be making you laugh out loud in our late-night comedy club.
PLUS new for 2016, we’re introducing a brand new programme of Edinburgh Previews, giving you a sneak peak at the hottest shows travelling to the Fringe this summer.
On top of all that, Stuart Goldsmith will be making a live on-site recording of the acclaimed The Comedian’s Comedian Podcast, with Tiff Stevenson. She’ll be grilled in front of an audience of lucky Larmers before the podcast is released online. Learn more here.
This year’s comedy club headliners are the legendary Mark Steel, who’s been honing his characteristic mix of storytelling and politics for 34 years. Paul Foot, returning after an unforgettable performance in 2014, he’ll be aiming to recruit you to The Guild of Paul Foot Connoisseurs with bonkers observations on the big issues and the banal. Australian absurdist Sam Simmons, fresh from winning two big live comedy awards last year, will have you rolling on the floor with laughter. And final headliner, the truly unique The Boy with Tape on His Face, famed for ‘silent stand-up’, is definitely one to be seen and not heard!
