Desiree Burch and Harriet Dyer | Tue 4 Jun | The Bread Shed | 7.30pm | £5/3
XS Malarkey kick off their Edinburgh Fringe series in some style with a double bill which matches their usual very high standards. First up is US powerhouse Desiree Burch with her new show “Desiree’s Coming Early”, followed by Harriet Dyer’s “The Dinosaur Show”, which has been gathering some exciting early buzz ahead of this year’s Fringe. Mainly because Dyer is an exceptional talent, but also because she dresses as a dinosaur throughout.

Harriet Kemsley | Wed 5 Jun | The Old Monkey | 7.30pm | £8
After a sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Harriet Kemsley brings her stand up show “Slutty Joan” to The Old Monkey, a tale of sexual history, uncomfortable truths and the power of labelling. You might recognise Kemsley as one half of ‘Bobby and Harriet Get Married’ in which she married/grew increasingly exasperated with comedian Bobby Mair, but you should see her manic energy onstage to get a real feel from one of the most exciting young comics working today covering very important topics.

Sarah Keyworth | Sat 8 Jun | The Lowry | 8pm | £12/10
Nominated for best newcomer at the 2018 Edinburgh Comedy Awards Sarah Keyworth has been marked out for big things. Here she brings that critically-lauded debut show ‘Dark Horse’ to The Lowry. She’s playing the studio now but don’t be surprised to see her in the main auditorium in years to come.
