Iain Stirling - U OK Hun? X

Iain Stirling is back after a summer narrating ITV2's smash hit Love Island and now you can see his actual face on his brand new tour!

After selling out his entire Edinburgh Fringe run out in advance and adding shows due to extra public demand, the BAFTA winning comedian now hits the road to perform his acclaimed, hot ticket show around the UK.

Join the 'star of comedy' (The i) as he explores dinner party etiquette and the pressures on a generation brought up in a world of instant gratification. How has modern living affected our ability to find long term happiness? Can social media ever reflect real life? And why is the floor lava?

As well as hosting ITV2’s newest hit comedy gameshow CelebAbility, Iain’s intuitive razor-sharp humour has previously been seen on E4's Virtually Famous, Comedy Central's Drunk History and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, BBC Three's Russell Howard's Good News and Sweat the Small Stuff and ITV2's Fake Reaction and Safe Word.

Gyles Brandreth - Break a Leg!

They say all political careers end in tears.

In Brandreth's case it's tears of laughter as the actor, author, ex-MP, One Show reporter and QI, Have I Got News For You and Countdown star is back on tour with his new show celebrating all things theatrical.

Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), the BBC Radio 4 Just a Minute regular delivers a dazzling hour of wit, wisdom, high drama, low comedy, and hilarious name-dropping.

WHY? ‘A master raconteur’ ★★★★★ The Telegraph

‘Total joy’ ★★★★★ Scotsman

Helen Lederer and Athena Kugblenu

An Edinburgh Festival preview from So Comedy.

Helen Lederer feels it’s time to spill all, before she forgets and gets taken off the patches altogether. What went on in the Big Brother House?

Can she be honest about stand-up comedy, being fat, wheezy and other secrets? probably not. She might lie.

‘A miracle of comic compression and control’ The Times

'Divinely witty' The Guardian

'Cleverly insane' The Observer

Athena Kugblenu says the world's never had more knowledge, yet never more stupidity. She can’t help but notice consistencies between the universe and herself. How can she blame people for choosing Trump when she's choosing the wrong men?

Clearly we haven't realised she constantly makes mistakes so we don't have to. Join Athena for a tour of the world’s most pressing catastrophes which pale compared to what happened when she fixed her own washing machine.

'A smart, impassioned comedian' The Scotsman

'Good material, sharp presentation... an important voice' The Sunday Times

WHY? Helen is famed for The Naked Video and Absolutely Fabulous while Athena writes for BBC Radio 4’s News Quiz
