AS the comedy scene heads up north to Edinburgh for the annual Fringe Festival - Galeri in Caernarfon will offer a pre-festival "workin-progress" hat trick of evenings from 19 July until 21 July.

All three evenings are presented in partnership with RBM Comedy and will feature two top quality acts for three evenings.

The first evening will take place on Thursday, 19 July featuring Mark Simmons and Jayde Adams.

Mark - who has performed as a warm-up act in Galeri for Sean Walsh back in 2009 - is a one-liner comedian. It won him a place in Dave's prestigious Best Joke of The Fringe in Edinburgh 2017.

Jayde has won ludicrous amount of comedy awards and been nominated for even more. This year at Edinburgh Fringe Ms Jayde has decided she's going to stop being so bloody humble and finally transcend into the diva she's been hiding from with her show 'The Divine Ms Jade".

On Friday, 20 July - it is the turn of Edd Hedges and Alice Marshall to take centre stage.

Edd Hedges will return to Edinburgh following his debut show Wonderland in 2017 with another unique hour of storytelling. As seen on BBC Presents and as tour support for Sofie Hagen, as well as The Almighty Comedy Hour show at the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Alice Marshall's 'The Strike' sees her return with more of her signature weird and wonderful characters, and this time they're transporting you all the way to the fifth dimension. Join bold and brassy Hispanic air stewardess Maria - once dubbed 'the angriest woman in the skies' - as she welcomes the audience on-board for their 50-minute non-stop flight straight into the Twilight Zone.

The finale sees Lou Conran (replacing Desiree Burch) and Welshman Matt Rees on Saturday, 21 July.

The multi-award-winning Welshman has generated a huge buzz on the circuit over the past few years with his unique brand of well-crafted gags and acerbic delivery earning him high praise from audiences and critics alike.

This summer will mark Matt's debut with his 'Happy Hour' show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and at such a young age and with a wealth of comedic talent, it's exciting to see exactly what he'll do next!

In a change to the advertised line-up, Lou Conran replaces Desiree Burch who will sadly be missing Edinburgh this year due to personal circumstances.

After a critically acclaimed run at Edinburgh Fringe 2017, Lou Conran's 2018 show is all about presumption, misunderstandings and misgivings.

Oh, and a bloke called Darren! | All shows start at 8pm and tickets (PS10 / PS8 or PS21 for all 3 shows) are available from Galeri's box office 01286 685 222 and on
