Peter Kay may not have the most original material in the world - taxi drivers, bad DJs, Bullseye, Crimewatch - but he pulls it off with sheer verve. He forms a strong double-bill at the Perrier Pick of the Fringe show with fellow nominee, Ed Byrne (above). A mesmerising yarn- spinner, he recounts the occasion he was dragged along by his girlfriend to endure a night at the opera.

Audiences warm to Lee Hurst as though he were the funny geezer from down the pub. He gets whoops of recognition with such lines as: "Every bloke here will agree that buying a kebab on a Saturday night is the final admission that you're not going to pull. Even the kebab-shop owner joins in: `Would you like chilli sauce on your no-sex evening?'" His national tour, "Un-Ironed", begins on Thursday.
