Fascinating Aida, The Three Englishmen, Clive Mantle's Tommy Cooper and Omid Djalili.

Another chance to hear Janice Forsyth from our special purpose built venue, the BBC@Potterrow. Sharing the stage with her today are.

Multi-award winning stand-up, international film star, and acclaimed writer/producer Omid Djalili is soon to hit the road for the first time in 3 1/2 years with more carefully crafted cultural observations in his brand new show, Tour of Duty. But first he needs to test his new material and what better place than at Edinburgh's Fringe Festival with his show 'Omid Djalili: Work in Progress'. The "thinking person's Iranian comedian" chats to the Festival Café about his career.

"Absolutely Fabulous meets Noel Coward, as sung by the Andrews Sisters". Three times Olivier Award nominated top comedy cabaret trio, Fascinating Aida, have become a global internet sensation with their infamous anthem to budget travel, 'Cheap Flights'. With millions of hits worldwide they're paying homage to their success with this year's Fringe show 'Fascinating Aida: Cheap Flights'. Captain Dillie Keane, navigator Adele Anderson and new flight attendant, Sarah-Louise Young add some sparkle to today's show with their stunning harmonies and satirical songs.

Incredibly inventive, superbly silly, brilliantly bizarre, it's no wonder four man sketch group The Three Englishmen were a total sell-out with their debut show at last year's Fringe. The charismatic quartet, finalists in the Musical Comedy Awards 2011, return to Edinburgh with their very best selection of zany sketches and songs in this year's show The Three Englishmen: Optimists. With plaudits from critics and punters alike, we welcome this very talented troupe to the stage.

Star of Casualty and Holby City, Clive Mantle swaps his stethoscope for a fez as he brings back the trademark magic and jokes of Tommy Cooper in his hilarious tribute show, "Jus' Like That!" More than simply an impersonation of the legendary comedian, Mantle truly morphs into character with a performance that's uncanny from the infectious laugh to the comic mistiming to the magic tricks. We find out what its like to step into the size 13 shoes of one of Britain's most iconic comedy entertainers.
