Richard Osman's House of Games Line Up This Week with Jen Brister and Ian Moore

More comedians will be competing for Richard Osman's precious prizes this week as Ian Moore and Jen Brister take on Kelvin Fletcher and Dr Zoe Williams.

Ian Moore is a slick, impeccably well-dressed stand-up mod and also a successful novelist. He recently branched out into murder mystery territory with Death and Croissants, which sounds as if it might give Richard Osman a run for his money in the quirky sleuthing stakes. The TV rights have already been sold so things are looking good for Moore.

Edinburgh Fringe Review 2019 – Round-Up Featuring Seann Walsh, Phil Wang, Jen Brister, George Egg, Tom Rosenthal, Carl Donnelly & More

So many shows, so little time. Well actually so many shows, quite a lot of time. But still not long enough to do more than scratch the surface of comedy at the Fringe. I was at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019 for 23 days. And saw 91 shows. Not quite the most I’ve seen in a Fringe stint, but it may have been more. Some were free gigs with no tickets so I may not have made a note of them.
