Edinburgh Preview Season hots up as Sophie Duker and Alex Kealy go head to head with Phil Ellis and Heidi Regan on Tuesday and Comedy For Hot People hosts another stellar lineup headlined by Allyson June Smith.

Sophie Duker and Alex Kealy at XS Malarkey | Tue 19 Jul | 7.30pm | £3/6

Recent Taskmaster champion Sophie Duker and Mock The Week writer Alex Kealy will be at XS Malarkey for another delightful double of Edinburgh previews. Kealy presents new show Winner Takes All; a scathing and satirical look at Silicon Valley tech monopolies, advertising and addiction whereas Sophie Duker’s new show is about growing older, wiser and “gleefully not caring anymore”.

Phil Ellis and Heidi Regan at Frog & Bucket | Tue 19 Jul | 8pm | £7

On that very same night you can also choose to watch Phil Ellis and Heidi Regan trot out their new works in progress at the Frog and Bucket on Oldham Street. Two of the absolute best with very varied styles, it really depends on your geography in the city centre as to which pair of previews you want to take in. We certainly couldn’t choose.
