Sheffield-born, Chesterfield-raised Tom Binns appears in the guise of his alter ego Ian D Montfort the New Age teacher, medium and psychic, at Funhouse Comedy at the New Barrack Tavern tomorrow, Sunday.

He kicks off an Edinburgh Festival Preview All-Dayer, followed by five other comedians.

Paul McCaffrey from BBC 3’s prankster show Impractical Jokers has a show called Name in Lights while Danny Ward is making his debut with Pressure Point which ponders whether six months living in Auntie Annie’s conservatory can push you over the edge.

In his show Rom Com Romesh Ranganathan is trying to understand the world whilst not being able to make sense of his own house.

Character comedian Milo McCabe brings an assortment of personalities from an improbable Scrabble champion to a ‘swell’ on benefit. Finally, Alistair Barrie performs Universal Adapter, blending thought-provoking economic argument with plenty of laughs.

Doors open at 1.30pm in the beer garden with an outdoor stage. Advance tickets: £6.
