    Punchline's 2017 Fringe Recommendations!

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Last year we recommended Richard Gadd and Larry Dean who went onto win the Edinburgh Comedy Award and Amused Moose Award…

    This year is set to be a belter. As ever, these are our shows we already know we´ll love, and we will continue to recommend shows throughout the Fringe. We’re not doing YouTube videos this year as these acts have to be experienced live to see just how brilliant they are.

Next event announced soon

Defining a generation of new classic comedy, Punchline brings you the rising stars in the UK just before they become household names.

So far we've had Des Clarke, Pappy's, Nick Helm, Andrew Lawrence, John Hastings, David Trent, Charlie Baker, Josh Widdicombe, Roisin Conaty, Greg Burns, Idiots of Ants, Ivan Brackenbury, Ian D Montfort, Seann Walsh, Mark Olver and Frankie Boyle. Who will be next?
