2017 Edinburgh Comedy Awards nominees for Best Show and Best Newcomer to the Ed Fringe

The lastminute.com Edinburgh Comedy Awards announced their nominees for Best Show and Best Newcomer to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017, and there’s a sole American entry on those lists.

Natalie Palamides, who shined as a New Face last summer in Montreal’s Just For Laughs Characters showcase, has received acclaim for her first show at Edinburgh, “LAID.” And yes, eggs are involved.

As for the other nominees, here they are! Winners will be announced Saturday.

Best Show

Best Newcomer

And here are the other American shows you still can check out in Edinburgh. Sean Patton in particular has been earning rave reviews, while the Scots are obviously mystified by SNL writer Julio Torres and his shapes. Reformed Whores have enjoyed their first time in Edinburgh so much they made a new music video while there.

Enjoy it!
