Tom Basden

A damn fine, damn funny show combining quirky songs on guitar and banjo (plus a couple of invented instruments) with strange slide shows, photo stories and suggestions for a new dance craze. Learn about the former if.comedy Best Newcomer's suspiciously cuddly pet python, Neighbours-based fantasies and list of inappropriate fonts. The oddball material is original, well-delivered and raises big laughs.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 30 Aug, 6pm, £10-£12.
