Idil Sukan: awarding the comedy creatives

If you're a Fringe regular, there is a chance you've seen more of Idil Sukan's work at this Festival than any other artist. Because for over a decade now, she has been behind countless photos and poster designs that you will have seen pasted up all over this city each August (including those pictured here).

Funny feeling: Idil Sukan's soulful snaps of standups

In her exhibition This Comedian, Idil Sukan captures comics in contemplative poses - plus there's Phil Nichol snogging a lion. Katherine Ryan, Bridget Christie, Stewart Lee and Steve Coogan all feature in the show, which runs from 20 February to 2 March at the Embassy Tea Gallery in Southwark, London. An accompanying live event, in which standups talk about baring their soul on stage, takes place at the Duchess theatre on 26 January. All photographs: Idil Sukan.
