Laugh Out London comedy club returns to Camden after a summer break with a very special Alternative Pick of the Fringe show.

We’ve chosen four of the most interesting and experimental acts with shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year and brought them together in one awesome bill of weird and wonderful comedy.

Line Up:

**ADAM HESS**
Twitter star Adam received huge acclaim for his debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe this year, which was the perfect showcase for his silly, energetic humour.

“One to watch…” -Time Out
★★★★– The Public Reviews ★★★★ Arts Award Voice*

*“Wonderful off the wall genius, a must see for anyone of a silly persuasion” – ★★★★.5*

“Imagine a cross between Sean Lock and Eddie Izzard and you might be getting somewhere, but nowhere close” – Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard*
