Edinburgh and Beyond

Edinburgh and Beyondedinburgh and beyond

Simply put, Edinburgh & Beyond brings you the very best stand up comedians working today, all in one place, all for you.

For this latest series, starting Saturday July 25th 2009 Al Murray the Pub Landlord has sadly stepped down as your host and compere.

But the good news is that he has been replaced by Mock The Week star Russell Howard, with his own brand of award-winning comedy.

Russell will present six one-hour shows featuring some of the most exciting comedians at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. 

Edinburgh & Beyond is one of the few stand up comedy shows to bring live comedy from the brightest up-and-coming acts direct to your living rooms.

Expect to see top-flight stand-up from: Russell Kane, who recently appeared on Live at the Apollo; Flight of the ConchordsKristen Schall, Peep Show’s Isy Suttie; and BBC Switch’s Tom Deacon

There's also more seasoned but no-less exciting turns from more established acts like Stephen K Amos, Paul Foot and Richard Herring.

Essentially it's the cream of the Fringe, with a line up that includes three if.comedy Award (formerly the Perrier) nominees and three if.comedy Best Newcomer Award nominees.

We're also over the moon to have Russell Howard on board,  a comedian so hot right now he is capable of filling Wembley Arena with his latest one-man show. Trust us, if you haven't seen him this buy's got some serious comic chops.

But aside from Russell, all the acts on Edinburgh & Beyond have each received critical acclaim for being so damn funny that you'd be a fool not to check them out individually, and absolutely insane if you miss them on one show.
