The ISH Edinburgh Comedy Awards Ceremony

Ceremony of the ISH Edinburgh Comedy Awards. Come and mingle with the nominees and find out the winners of the newest awards at the Edinburgh Fringe, with a few performances from some long-listed performers and who knows, one or two famous faces popping up to entertain and present the Awards.

The ISH Awards (ISH stands for Insert Sponsor Here) were set up when the Edinburgh Comedy Awards lost their sponsorship earlier this year. When the ECA thankfully found new sponsors, we thought we’d go ahead with these awards anyway to support the amazing artists of the Fringe, and 30 or so volunteer judges have spent the Fringe seeing all of the eligible comedy shows to recommend some of the exceptional shows. Here we find out the winners of the 3 prizes - Best Show, Best Newcomer and Panel Prize. And the prizes? Well if we get sponsorship, they are £10k, £5k and £5k respectively - and if we don’t… £10, £5 and £5. But it’s not about the money, it’s about the trophy!

This year we have two entry methods: Free & Unticketed or Pay What You Can
Free & Unticketed: Entry to a show is first-come, first served at the venue - just turn up and then donate to the show in the collection at the end.
Pay What You Can: For these shows you can book a ticket to guarantee entry and choose your price from the Fringe Box Office, up to 30 mins before a show. After that all remaining space is free at the venue on a first-come, first-served bases. Donations for walk-ins at the end of the show.
