Every year hundreds of comics bring comedy shows up to the internationally known Edinburgh Fringe. But the shows need to be tweaked, refined and perfected before August, so we have selected our favourite acts to preview at the Four Thieves in July. This is the behind-the-scenes, unique opportunity to see these Works in Progress that you won't get on TV. Come for a night or two, or the whole week. Our line-ups are subject to change, but here is who we have confirmed: 

Wednesday 5th July - Tom Stade (Live at the Apollo) and John Lynn (Comedy Store)

Sunday 9th July - Ellie Taylor  (Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week, and more) and Robyn Perkins

Monday 10th July Shappi Khorsandi (Mock the Week) and Andrew Ryan (Russell Howard's Good News)

Tuesday 11th July - Due to a TV filming, Andrew Maxwell can  no longer perform. We will keep you posted with who we book, but it will most likely be Eshaan Akbar and DAVE CHAWNER. 

Wednesday 12th July - Robin Ince (Infinite Monkey Cage) and John Hastings (BBC3: Seann Walsh's Late Night Comedy Spectacular)

Thursday 13th July - Tom Deacon (Capital FM, Rob Brydon Show)*, Nigel Ng and WRONG COMEDY (*Due to UNFORESEEN circumstances, ivo graham cannot make it. he sincerely apologises, and will return November 8th). 

Wednesday 19th July - Hate N Live: This edgy, sell-out, hit comedy panel show features top comedians hating on topics YOU suggest. Do traffic wardens, politicians or the weather piss you off? Let the comedians vent your spleen for you! “Raucous dick swinging comedy” -Chortle

Wednesday 26th July - Dane Baptiste (Live at the Apollo, Sunny D) and Paul Chowdhry (Live at the Apollo)

We also have an early preview on June 14th from Simon Evans - please see our regular Comedy Wednesday ticketing page for these tickets.

Had a great night. Acts were good even if the material wasn't perfect. And for the price you can't really complain. It was my first time at four thieves, would definitely go again. Visited The Four Thieves on 2016-07-11
