Preview: Been there, done that, back & doing it again

There's a school of thought that the Edinburgh Fringe is a Young Person's Game. But actually in recent years it has become an older person's game too. Maybe they are the baby boomer generation who can afford to lose a few grand every August or maybe they just love the thrill of the Fringe and the art of stand-up. Whatever the reasons here are some comedians who know the game inside out and are the collective epitome of a safe pair of comedy hands. And no, they are not listed in descending order of chronology. We'll not be having any age before beauty here. Some of them might not be doing a full Fringe run, but at their age I think we can allow them a few days off. Click on their names for their dates and ticket details.

Nine Lessons And Carols For Godless People 2017 review

For a show based upon the rigours of the scientific process, Robin Ince's annual celebration of the curious and the creative has some pretty large margins of error. Nine Lessons And Carols For Godless People? More like 19, by my count of the guests.

Fringe on a theme: returning Fringe legends

At the Fringe it is easy to focus on new artists and overlook those who helped shaped stand-up before it became a viable career - here's where to catch those legends in Edinburgh this year.
