Admin

A charming debut hour about finally coming to terms with being happy. Join 'one of the most delightful performers you're ever likely to see' (GQ) on an expedition across continents with David Attenborough, to the depths of despair via Walt Disney and to sincere satisfaction courtesy of pesto. Overcoming the difficulties of living somewhere great and a really straightforward relationship to find comedy where comedy is. Paramount and Chortle Student Competition finalist Laura Lexx packs 'real comedic steel' (Guardian Weekend) into a refreshingly uplifting hour of celebratory comedy.

It's the final weekend of the Edinburgh Fringe! Maybe you've had a long week at work, maybe you're through for the weekend. A lot of our top 10 shows sold out long ago, and some (not all!) of the Foster's Award nominees' shows have been snapped up... so what to see? We've put together a cracker of a schedule of shows that you may still get tickets for if you're quick! (Tickets still available when this article was published)

"Why is this going to be your first Edinburgh Fringe show?" I asked comedian Laura Lexx yesterday.

"Because I've never wanted to do one before."

It is that time of year again, when people give you their considered advice on who you should go and see at the Edinburgh Fringe, whilst carefully hiding their real reasons for plugging the shows.
