The Comedy Zone: The Fringe's most prestigious and longest running showcase is back for its 23rd year. Previously bringing you the likes of Dave Gorman, Russell Howard, Al Murray, Russell Kane and many more, this year's acts tipped for the top are: Lucy Beaumont (Winner BBC New Comedy Award 2012) , Carl Hutchinson (Winner Magners Pub Comedian of the Year), Tommy Rowson (Winner So You Think You're Funny 2011), and Matt Winning (Winner Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year 2011). Alex Horne: Lies - The 30 year old multi-Bafta award-winning stand up and platinum-selling R&B artist Alex Horne is back with an hour of observations, impressions and lies. Best known for mindblowing Powerpoint or live music, this show has neither; just Alex, a panda, some jokes and some lies. Although one of those may also be a lie. Or a joke. Either way, it'll be funny. Honest.
