There are many actresses are the comedy of character, but it can be difficult to know which are good comic instincts through the bones and those actresses who just think that what made Catherine Tate seems easy. Cariad Lloyd falls firmly into the former camp. His first show, Dame Characters Cariad is a memorable series of classes (including a member of a cult gay, singing a cockney and a seven-year stand-up named Andrew), all made with great skill and sublime moments of grace along the road. While many comedy shows character may feel a little stiff, it should be light and full of surprises, the roots of Lloyd's are better (he was trained under legendary mad genius Campbell-cum-Ken) while it is unlikely to let things simple for long. Curiously, despite the rumors that surround as a performer, his time alone, is one of a range of high free shows.
Men of War: Pleasance Court, Wednesday to Friday, Dame Cariad Characters: Voodoo Rooms, August 6 to 27
If you want a good pipe of a stranger could be a future star, you can look up young Joe Wells. Not on the most promising position to make an impact, hidden in the middle of a triple bill at the Tron, but if you make the effort, you will find some of the materials most surprising and exciting for any comedian in the 20 years. We are always lamenting the fact that young people seem disengaged from politics, but Wells is going against his act revolves around his decision to enter the fervor of Marxism as a solution to problems of 2011

gentlemen of leisure: The death of the novel
Each year there are a few things about Edinburgh are not predictions, and the guarantees - that will always run the tattoo every night, and two, there will be a new batch of young nervous seriously trying to make their mark in the field of comedy. To be perfectly honest, these guys probably deserve our sympathy - since the world of comedy stand-up is now more focused than ever, it is even more difficult for drawing comics (no matter how talented they are) to really drilling. On his arm by accident this year, perhaps the highest standards of craftsmanship on display Knights of leisure - a highly qualified team of two men whose writing is touched by genius. Tom Neenan Nish Kumar and research on the fate of the written word can seem intellectual to the surface, what with its flashy reflections on literature and aesthetics, but it's just a cover for one hour to engage nonsense, full of inventive gags devices successfully funny.
just the tonic in the caves, Thurs, August 28ramp Cambridge come to Edinburgh every year to promote their latest goods, and although it seems that all the limelight show from the date of Fry and Laurie did with enthusiasm, have also was thus a little trash. What is often most interesting are the performances by ex-Footlighters now take their steps in the adult world and coming up with jokes that are not much fun for students. Sheep is an example, a well-talked-about sketches when three talented newcomers: Liam Williams (red eyes, a thousand-yard stare), Alastair Roberts (tall, thin and geek) and Daran Johnson (relatively normal-looking). There are plenty of good humor, creative writing here (including an extravagant musical adaptation of Oliver Twist, which turns out to be a real strength) and is sufficient to suggest that it could be heard far more of these three types in the future. It can not be Cleese and Chapman, but at least you could Mitchell and Webb.
