About me

Hi there,

I'm Ian Wolf, "Data Specialist" on the guide, writing up articles for several shows, creating feature articles, reporting news stories, maintaining the TV and radio schedule and so forth. Probably my most famous work is collecting the reviews for all the shows during the Edinburgh Fringe. In 2015, I was given the first and only "Unsung Hero" Award at the Ham Fist Prizes for my work. In 2019, I became a judge for the Increasingly Prestigious Malcolm Hardee Awards.

I also worked as editor for On The Box, having previously been a TV and radio reviewer for Giggle Beats.

Apart from comedy, my other area of interest is anime and manga. I review it for the website Anime UK News, wrote a "Beginner's Guide to Anime" for On The Box and I was also the manga critic for MyM Magazine.

Tim FitzHigham review

Saturday 20th August 2011

A great performance, made even more interesting and exciting by the genuine risks the comedian undertook to put together this remarkable show.


Jollyboat review

Monday 15th August 2011

You know that a comedy show is brilliant when the time just seems to fly by and you leave hungry for more. This describes musical duo Jollyboat's show.


Ava Vidal review

Monday 15th August 2011

Ada Vidal talks about subjects including race and prejudice, subjects she has covered many times previously.


Zoe Lyons review

Friday 12th August 2011

Zoe Lyons keeps her audience together with her mix of light and dark, snuggies and a fondness for fudge. Definitely worth seeing if you get the chance.
