Foxdog Studios: Robot Chef

After a year building an invoicing system in Stoke, rock and roll IT consultants Pete and Lloyd are having a party celebrating the end of dBASE IV. Returning with more music, characters, and baffling tech – including an augmented reality world and an audience controlled robot chef – this is their most ambitious show yet. As heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra. Nominated for the Chortle Award for Innovation and two Malcolm Hardee Awards in 2016. ** (Skinny). (List). *** (Time Out).

Maisie Adam: Vague

18 months ago, Maisie decided to try stand-up comedy. Within a year, she won the biggest stand-up comedy newcomer competition (becoming the fourth woman to have done so in its 30 years), opened for major comedians, and claimed a Best New Comedy nomination at Brighton Fringe. In her debut, the northerner and self-confessed "Slave to the Sesh" relays her experiences of navigating the recklessness of youth whilst dealing with a medical condition that requires you to be a "Sensible Susan". Winner: So You Think You're Funny? 2017. 'Exudes an appealing, quirky energy... clearly a natural wit' (Chortle.co.uk).

Loose Brie Solve Everything

In real life, Loose Brie (Martin and Phil) live together in a tiny flat. It can be tough. A lot goes unsaid. In this show, they’re going to solve everything else. The world’s ills. All of them. In an hour. It can't be that hard, right? 'Promising twosome' (Evening Standard). 'Bold performers... following their own path' (Chortle.co.uk). 'I laughed – a lot' **** (MumbleComedy.net). So You Think You’re Funny Sketch Finalists 2017. As seen on Comic Relief and BBC3.

Heidi Regan: Heidi vs Sharks

Winner of BBC New Comedy Award 2017 and So You Think You're Funny 2016, Heidi Regan brings her debut show to the Edinburgh Fringe. In Heidi vs Sharks, the aforementioned Heidi explores our relationship with an increasingly confusing world via the medium of bad shark films (starring the aforementioned sharks). Topics covered include religion, the NHS and what makes Shark Attack III the Godfather III of bad shark films. Trigger warning: There will be sharks (in a few video clips, not in the audience).

Ed Night: An Aesthetic

'Ed Night stands at the dawn of the new age of stand-up' (Fest). He 'has no right to be as good as he is' **** (Fest). 'One of the future stars of British comedy' (iNews.co.uk). 'Blisteringly quick fire and jam-packed with jokes' (BroadwayBaby.com). Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee 2017. Star of BBC Radio 1's Ed and Lauren Get On. Tour support for Paul Sinha, Phil Wang, Dane Baptiste and Simon Amstell.

Andy Field the Love Tonight

Since the end of the last Fringe, Andy Field has been keeping a diary full of his thoughts, feelings and silly ideas. Now he's going to perform the best bits in an odd combination of bleak personal confessions and fun, lighthearted jokes and stories. It's the perfect marriage of whiny oversharing and surreal silliness that no one asked for but everyone can enjoy. You're very welcome. Chortle Student Comedy Award winner. BBC New Comedy Award finalist. Dave's Top Five Jokes of the Fringe, 2017.

Kit Sullivan: Lad

Kit Sullivan is a boy in a boy's body. But he wants to be more, much more... come and watch Kit be confused by his own creation while trying to make sense of his past and save his future. Spoiler: he won't. He’s a complete sandwich. Directed by Spencer Jones. 'With sketch groups it is often easy to see antecedents but this act came out of nowhere. Not surreal in a Vic and Bob way or a Monty Python way. I guess the nearest comparison is Noel Fielding, but even that isn’t close' (BeyondTheJoke.co.uk). 2nd-place Sketch Off.
