Fringe revealed

More Edinburgh shows unveiled

Rich Hall, Jeff Green and Adam Hills have all announced details of their Edinburgh shows.

They are all signed up with the Off The Kerb agency, which has unveiled its roster of shows for this year's fringe.

Hall will be performing a nightly two-hander with Canadian comic Mike Wilmot based around George W. Bush's stupidity and titled Pretzel Logic.

He will also be returning for a week of performances in his Perrier-winning guise as Otis Lee Crenshaw for a new show, Pernicious, backed by the Black Liars.

Hills, who was a Perrier nominee last year, will also be performing a new set, entitled Happy Feet.

Meanwhile, Comedy Store compere Tim Clark promises to mix theatre and stand-up in his new show Talking To Ted, described as "a confessional tale of drink, drugs and duplicity".

Canadian Jason John Whitehead makes his Edinburgh debut with a show entitled Immigrant, while fellow fringe newcomer Alistair Barrie presents The Uncertainty Principle, "boldly ignoring his total scientific ineptitude".

Other Off The Kerb comics returning to the festival include Dara O'Briain, Dave Fulton and Brendon Burns.

And the agency is again promoting the annual benefit gig in aid of gay rights group Stonewall, that last year features appearances from the likes of Graham Norton, Julian Clary and Phill Jupitus.
