Four comedians preview their latest gags at the Connaught Studio in Worthing on July 25 and 26 before they take up residence at the Edinburgh Festival this August.

The Edinburgh Festival Previews see Ed Gamble and Mark Smith take to the stage together on July 25 followed by Tommy Rowson and Jarlath Regan on July 26 as both pairs of comedians hone their best material in the final days before this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Ed Gamble combines self-effacing charm and an endearing on-stage persona, which have seen his career move from writing, performing and co-directing for the Durham Revue to touring extensively as Greg Davies’ support.

Mark has been performing stand-up since 2008 and since reaching the final of So You Think You’re Funny in 2009, has gigged all over the UK, is a regular MC and has broken into television to present for MTV2 and to write and perform for Dick and Dom’s Funny Business.

The second date of Edinburgh Festival Previews sees Tommy Rowson open the evening. He was a finalist in the 2011 Laughing Horse New Act competition and won So You Think You’re Funny later that year. Award-winning comedian, writer and star of Russell Howard’s Good News and The Panel, Jarlath Regan completes the two-day line-up. Both shows start at 8pm. Box office: 01903 206 206 or online at
