As the title promises, these sessions from Edinburgh’s Stand Comedy Club are the opposite of ordinary television comedy: rough around the edges, whimsical, occasionally controversial. This instalment is especially refreshing because it boasts an all-female line-up. Familiar faces Bridget Christie and Josie Long are joined by Maeve Higgins who has novel ideas about exercise, Helen Keen on modern relationships and self-professed “geek songstress” Helen Arney performing a surreal ode to the sun. Christie fans should tune in purely for her energetic tirade about Stirling Moss.


Stewart Lee introduces an evening of performances by female stand-ups, featuring Maeve Higgins, Josie Long, Bridget Christie, Helen Keen and Helen Arney.
