Comedy from the heart of the Edinburgh Fringe. Live stand-up, interviews, music, features, dirty gossip and more from the Pleasance Courtyard and Pleasance Dome. This Rebranded and relaunched Pleasance Comedy Podcast is a daily show with clips from live 2017 shows. We want you to come down and soak up the atmosphere, and this magazine style show will let you feel like you're already here. Now in it's seventh year, this isn't an hour long conversation with one comedian. This is fast paced, cram them in, when's the next show, can you get us tickets for this, who's hot, who said what, what do you mean it's only day four??? That's a difference, not a dig Dr Buckles. Previous guests include everyone from Josh Widdecombe to Cariad Lloyd, Reginald D. Hunter to Sara Pascoe, Eddie Izzard to Trevor Noah, Lucy Porter and Ed Byrne to Susan Calman and Jonathan Pie to Tom Allen and Mark Watson. Plus names you don't know. That's the point. You'll love it. Brought to you in association with Audible.co.uk/laughs Back catalogue available at https://soundcloud.com/thepleasance Presented by a clown with great hair and, thankfully, a proper radio producer.

I love this podcast. The girl who links it has such a cute voice and I love the interviews. I've only listened to 3 so far but they are all different and original and you get to hear the comedians' talk about why they do what they do. Some are eloquent and slick, some are flumoxed by the seemingly flippant questions but all have to dig deep and find something to say about their work. Its clever stuff, cleverly put together.
I love this show! Such an interesting insight into behind the scenes at the fringe! The hosts are great as well! WE WANT MORE!
Great fun comedy and chat
Lovely behind the scenes chat with comedians that offers a new perspective on the fringe alongside fantastic comedy
