James Acaster: my top Edinburgh comedy picks - The Guardian

Rob Auton: ­ The Water Show Banshee Labyrinth, to 30 Aug

A show all about water. Finally. I bet he'll do a poem or two and some jokes. He once said "yeah baby" on stage and I still laugh about it now. I can't guarantee you won't get wet.

The Story Beast Pleasance Courtyard, to 31 Aug

He's really loud and tells stories in a made up language and fills the stage with this big, bold, hugely expressive performance. You will understand it somehow, though.

Twins: ­ Pret A Comedy Pleasance Courtyard, to 30 Aug

Jack Barry and Annie McGrath doing laid-back sketches and telling everyone they're twins. It's on at midnight, so you'll feel crazy all the way through. I hope they wear their cool tops.

Tom Allen: ­ Both Worlds The Stand Comedy Club, to 30 Aug

I could watch Tom Allen every single day of Edinburgh and not get bored once. Just incredibly funny standup. Every gesture makes me laugh, he barely needs to try and I'm gone.

Tom Neenan: writer of a million brilliant jokes.

Holly Burn: ­ I Am Kirsty K Just The Tonic @ The Mash House, to 30 Aug

One of my favourite acts to watch ever. Surreal character comedy doesn't do it justice, really. I once saw her pretend to run an imaginary shop at a gig and do a stock check for ages.

Tom Neenan: ­ The Andromeda Paradox Pleasance Dome, to 31 Aug

Last year he made everyone jump because his show had two really scary bits in it. It also had a million brilliant jokes in it. Which is a lot. This year he's doing another mysterious spooky story.

Tania Edwards: ­ Electrifying Pleasance Courtyard, to 31 Aug

I have been watching Tania for almost eight years and she never fails to make me laugh out loud. I love the way she uses language and speaks in a funny posh voice. A real gem.

Chris Kent ­ Stop Stalling Assembly George Square, to 31 Aug

I saw Chris Kent for the first time this year and he had me in stitches. He lives in Ireland, that's the only reason I didn't see him sooner. Superbly written deadpan standup.

Ed Aczel: ­ The Random Flapping Of A Butterfly's Wings Heroes @ The Hive, to 30 Aug

Many people call it anti­-comedy. I don't know what that means. I know that once he walked off stage then came back on wearing a hat and I lost my mind laughing. Very low energy.

Chris Kent: lives in Ireland.

Chris Kent: lives in Ireland.

Sean McLoughlin: ­ Whatever It Takes Pleasance Courtyard, to 30 Aug

It normally doesn't work when a young comedian has a really bitter stage persona but with Sean McLoughlin you genuinely believe his life has been as disappointing as he makes out. Excellent.

Evelyn Mok: ­ Idiot Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, to 30 Aug

Everything about Evelyn Mok is funny. She's got a great joke about periods that me and my friends watched on YouTube at home together. Twice. And then quoted for months after.

Grace The Child: ­ Playground Politics Heroes @ Bob's BlundaBus, 8 & 9 Aug

Grace is 12 years old and does jokes about heroin. I have seen her make Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love references on stage and end a routine with the word "mutilated".

Felicity Ward: ­ What If There Is No Toilet? Pleasance Courtyard, to 31 Aug

One of the fringe's best kept secrets, I do not believe she's ever written a bad show so that makes her a pretty safe bet I'd say. This show is about mental illness and IBS.

Ben Target: a really weird guy.

Imagine There's No Ben Target (It's Easy If You Try) Heroes @ The Hive, to 30 Aug

I hear that Ben Target is doing an art installation piece this year but it's also comedy, that means I don't know quite what to expect so I'm excited. He's a really weird guy.

Markus Birdman: ­ Grimm Realities Canons' Gait, to 30 Aug

I saw Markus Birdman before I even became a standup and I'm still a fan now. This show incorporates his comedy skills and his drawing skills. What more could you want?

Rose Matafeo And Guy Montgomery Are Friends Laughing Horse @ Espionage, to 30 Aug

Two comics for the price of no comics because it's a free show! This pair are from New Zealand and have the funny voices to match. They're all over TV over there too - proper cool.

Rhys Nicholson: ­ Forward Underbelly, George Square, 31 Aug

I've been doing some club gigs with Rhys during the build up to Edinburgh and his routines have kiiiiilled me. He has an enviable turn of phrase and incredibly funny bones. Australian.

Chris Stokes: really thin.

Chris Stokes: ­ Altruism In Birds Pleasance Courtyard, to 30 Aug

This guy quit standup and then came back to it. I always think people look really cool when they do that. This show talks about that experience and loads more. He's really thin.

Trygve Wackenshaw: ­ Nautilus Pleasance Courtyard, to 30 Aug

Another New Zealand act but you won't hear his funny voice because he doesn't speak, it's all physical comedy instead. I can't promise anything but there's a chance you'll see his penis.

Adrienne Truscott's A One­-Trick Pony Gilded Balloon, to 17 Aug

I am on at the same time as Adrienne Truscott so please go and see the show on my behalf. It sounds bananas. I can't promise anything but there's a chance you'll see her vagina.

James Acaster: Represent is at the Pleasance Courtyard until 30 August

Rhodes -- who's 31 as well as lives in Vista with the woman's 3 rescue dogs -- was created as well as raised inside Caracas, Venezuela, exactly where inside grade college she began adopting abandoned dogs and kittens. over your subsequent 4 months, I rehabilitated the girl and she wound up turning out to end up being able to be the most amazing, loving dog I've ever encountered. The Actual vet suggested I place your ex down simply because she'd become as well harmful for rehabilitate, but I couldn't do it. she has been totally emaciated, covered within wounds, ticks and also fleas. Also then, she imagined owning her rescue group, but it might take more than twenty 5 years plus a circuitous path by means of higher education within Virginia, nightclub work in Mexico, a devastating hurricane and a sad-eyed pit bull/mastiff named Kira to discover your ex future.

VISTA — Upon Sunday afternoon, Aug. 1 night, I had been extremely shocked to see this dog strolling down the midst of the road from 2 a.m. in South America, you see a great deal much more actually heart-wrenching cases associated with dogs getting abused about the streets. Dogs may also be a new reflection involving whom we are. That ended up being love in the particular beginning sight. Dogs provide an power to rehabilitate us as humans as well as help to make us far better people. An angry as well as anxious dog can be channeling again our energy. I had an instant connection with her. I might have got rehabilitated her, yet she had been the person who rescued me
