More previews coming your way this week as the Edinburgh Fringe gets ever closer including shows from award winners Olga Koch, Brennan Reece and Harriet Dyer to local favourites Eryn Tett and Edy Hurst.

Milo Edwards and Olga Koch at The Fitzgerald | Tue 26 Jul | 7.30pm | From £3.83

Comedy For Hot People moves from its usual Thursday night spot for a special outing on a Tuesday with a pretty spectacular double bill of Edinburgh Fringe previews. Heading to The Ftizgerald are bright young things Olga Koch and Milo Edwards with their shows Just Friends and Voicemail respectively. Edwards will be looking at the death of youth whereas Koch spins an epic modern love story for Gen Z, each of which will have awards panels and critics buzzing in August.

Eryn Tett and Edy Hurst at Gullivers | Thu 28 Jul | 7pm | FREE

Just as Comedy For Hot People moves nights to accustom a double header of previews, so too does Blizzard Comedy as it uproots from its usual Monday night berth for a Thursday night with local favourites Eryn Tett and Edy Hurst. The former will be delving deep into the many iterations of The War of The Worlds with a show title so long it will obliterate this word count, whereas the latter is still hoping to ‘find her audience’ which she certainly has in trotting this hour out at the likes of the Women in Comedy Festival last year and no doubt will find a larger crowd at The Fringe.

Brennan Reece and Harriet Dyer at Dead Comics Society | Sun 31 Jul | 8pm | £6

Finish the week with two absolute gems in Harriet Dyer and Brennan Reece who’ll be presenting their final previews before heading to Edinburgh the following week. You’d hope this will mean the shows have been punched up to the max and ready to wow the audiences in the Scottish capital next month, but even if they’re half finished you couldn’t wish for two finer comics to spend a Sunday night with.
