Lucy Porter

It seems wrong to describe Lucy Porter as a Fringe veteran but with an Edinburgh career dating back to 1995 when she was a finalist in So You Think You’re Funny (the winner that year was some guy called Lee Mack) that’s how she’s now known. This year, Porter’s pretty much shedding herself completely for Bare Necessities in which she touches upon the very nature of human need. She’s smarter than the average semi-clad Fringe comic. Read her experiences as a festival veteran.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, 2–25 Aug (not 6, 13), 7.40pm, £13–£14 (£11.50–£12.50). Previews until 1 Aug, £7.

Another year, another dose of loveliness and cheery japes from the diminutive Ms Porter which doesn't quite hit the spot. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe'.
