Can’t make it up to this years Edinburgh Festival? Fear not, as we have two fantastic Edinburgh previews from two award winning acts…

Desiree Burch: Desiree's Coming Early!

She was born late, bloomed late and always missed the bus. But a compelling shift has the fresh-faced/world-weary comedian (Netflix’s Flinch, The Mash Report, Live at the Apollo) mischievously changing up the tempo. As seen on Have I Got News For You, QI, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, 8 Out of 10 Cats. ***** (ScotsGay.co.uk). **** (Scotsman). **** (Guardian). About self and everything else. Every comic has a relationship show but what happens when that relationship's with the one person you were most trying to avoid? One isn't prime or perfect. But it is magic!

John Kearns: Double Take and Fade Away
Double Edinburgh Comedy Award winner presents his fourth show. He meanders, he loses his track, he overshoots his mark, he drops his glasses, he meets himself coming back, he digresses, he alters direction, he sinks in at the knees, he rolls over like a log, he forgets the drift, he drops someone flat, he exaggerates, oversimplifies, falsifies, evades the issue; he dawdles, he dwindles, he trips over his own feet, he runs away with himself, he implicates others, he misses the point, he ends up at the same place.
