American comedy acts at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival

It only seems like there are a million other shows happening in Edinburgh each August.

In fact, this month, the Ed Fringe is only hosting 3,781 different shows. Of those, only about show up in the filtered results for comedy from the United States. So if you’re looking for an American act, or for your fellow Americans in Scotland, here they are! Pictured above: musical duo Reformed Whores!

  1. Bill Beteet: If You Feel Like Killing Yourself, Call Me. Don’t go and waste your time. It was not funny. I found it disrespectful. Stoned hoste for the beginning. And Bill who thinks that jokes about shooting in USA or terrorist attacts are funny. And if tou feel like being mixed race giving you a right for being racist well I have no words for that. I think it was cringy. I people were leaving the show but the guy did not even try to safe the act and was laughing at his own jokes. Sad
