American comedians at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival

August means all comedy eyes on Edinburgh, at least for those who love one-person shows, madcap eccentrics and a trip to Scotland.

Sam Wills, aka “The Boy With Tape on His Face,” aka Tape Face for viewers this summer on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, delivered the official welcoming address to performers and participants in the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. And there are, as usual now, several American comedians making the trip across the pond to spend the month, or part of it, vying for new fans amid the mayhem of the festival.

Here are the comedians from the United States mounting Edinburgh shows right now:
