How to Make It in Comedy on SBS – How to Make It In Comedy is the story of how a small Scottish arts festival that began 75 years ago became a national institution – a crucible where new stars are forged, careers made, and sometimes, dreams dashed.
Told by the stars who first found fame at the Edinburgh Fringe, this is the inside story of what it takes to make a name here, from those who enjoyed overnight success to those who slogged for years to make it.
Through their triumphs, favourite jokes, and sometimes painful failures, we’ll discover a hidden history of British comedy – revealing how the gags we find funny and the comedians we love reflect our changing culture.
