Preview: Pleasance London Edinburgh Preview Season

The Edinburgh Fringe may be all of six weeks away but much of the capital's comedy talent is hard at work getting ready before they go north to seek fame, fortune and deep-fried Mars Bars.

Fringe favourite Pleasance Edinburgh's London sibling is hosting a series of shows in June and July starting this Sunday. Prices have been set at a very reasonable £5 for single acts and £10 for doubles. Ones to watch for include the evergreen Richard Herring, the "endearingly stupid" Idiot Of Ants,  the Enfield-born winner of last year's Edinburgh Comedy Award Russell Kane and Amused Moose Laugh-Off Award-winner Naz Osmanoglu.
