The Edinburgh Festival Fringe has revealed around 60 shows to take place at this year's event in August. The announcement comes weeks before the full line-up announcement on Thu 31 May.
Comedy shows form the bulk of the latest show announcements, featuring performances from Stewart Lee, Alan Davies, Rhod Gilbert, Jason Byrne, Danny Bhoy, Daniel Sloss, Greg Proops, Jimmy Carr, Rhys Darby, Phil Jupitus and Stephen K Amos.
Some theatre shows were also revealed - Karen's Way (about Holocaust escapee Karen Gershon), contemporary Aeschylus adaptation Seven Against Thebas and two MacBeth adaptations (MacBeth in Scots and rock opera 'Beth).
Jim Hunt and Paul Kelly will play music shows, Spank and the infamous Late'n'Live will host late night comedy showcases, and children can enjoy performances of Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales and Nessie the Loch Ness Monster.
