SAMANTHA BAINES: Work In Progress
Award-winning comedian Samantha Baines (The Crown, Sunny D, BBC Radio 4) returns to Edinburgh after a smash-hit, sell-out run in 2016. This year she’s exploring the lost women of science. Expect facts, puns and an ear trumpet attached to a whiskey bottle. It’s science meets funny.

PATRICK TURPIN: Work In Progress
Turpy – as seen on Climaxed (BBC3) and Pop Sludge (4Music) – returns with a stand-up show/hour of performance art/arse flapping gently in the wind, that rodgers the system quite firmly in the poo-poo place. Turpy talks clothes, life as a full-time sissy, being a gorgeous lil’ hetero-boring man in 2017, and (as always) love and romance.
