Paxman retires and brings us PAXO

The broadcaster, author and Spitting Image puppet probes pogonophobia, underpants and the human condition

Venue: Pleasance Courtyard (Venue 33)
Ranked by GQ Magazine as the 26th rudest man in Britain, Jeremy Paxman is dropping his fearsome persona as News Night interviewer to bring a one-man comedy show to the Edinburgh Fringe. His subjects? Pognophobia, underpants and the human condition. Paxman will also allow the tables to be turned and subject himself to audience questioning, so even if his stand-up disappoints the show as a whole should be an entertaining experience.

PAXO is running for 8 shows only so book tickets fast.
