The Edinburgh Fringe Festival kicks off in less than a fortnight with nearly 60,000 performances expected to take place.
There is bound to be something for everybody, with plenty of stand-up, sketch comedy and improv being performed from 1 to 25 August in everything from big theatres and pubs to a double decker bus and a garden shed.

The Guardian’s Lyn Gardner is looking forward to Bridget Christie’s follow-up to her 2013 show A Bic for Her.
