The 1,000-pun salute #1000puns

This has been covered on Chortle, PPSF, London is Funny and Shortlist Magazine

To celebrate a record-breaking number of shows at the Edinburgh Fringe this year, I’m attempting a record of my own.

On Monday 6 August at 3pm, I will attempt to tweet a pun based on the name of every single comedian (who has a Twitter account) performing at the Edinburgh Fringe this year.

For example:

Tim Shishodia

“What kind of kebabs do you like, Tim?”


“Oh, do ya?”

Some will be good, some will be bad and some will be downright terrible.

Twitter only allows 1,000 tweets per day. So, from more than 2,695 shows, I will pick 1,000 comedians and make #1000puns.
