The Iraq Pack - Live from Das Vegas (or Dead)

Back from their unsuccessful world tour, the singing dictators of dark cabaret have come to Edinburgh. The comedy war machine that is Frank Sanazi, Dean Stalin, Saddami Davis Jnr and Osama Bin Crosby, or the Four Crooners of the Apocalypse, as they are known, will unleash such extreme renditions as Strangers on My Flight, Arranged Marriage, Ain't That a Shot in the Head, and Mein Way on an unsuspecting public. This show is not for the faint-hearted. 'Brilliantly stupid, fantastically wrong and ridiculously funny' (Scotsman).

Comedian claims best Fringe gag 'was my joke first'

A judging panel gave the award to Darren Walsh for the one-liner: "I just deleted all the German names off my phone. It's Hans free." But fellow comic Pete Cunningham said he had been using the joke in his own routine for many years.

The trauma of a 5* review & why I don't like fauning

Maybe absurdism and 'outa left field' comedians are starting to make inroads into mainstream media consciousness. Even if I have no idea what 'outa left field' actually specifically means.

One man's day at the Edinburgh Fringe

Mark, a man of mystery who runs the British Comedy Guide website, had sent me a piece about Abigoliah Schamaun, who has been plastering fake review quotes and stars on her show posters. He suggested she might be a worthy Malcolm Hardee Cunning Stunt Award nominee.
