His Just For Us show is currently running at the comedy and arts festival.
Winning the Best Newcomer Award at Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014 (the first American to do so since 1997), Alex Edelman returns to the comedy and arts event with his latest show, Just For Us.
We took the opportunity to chat to Edelman about his experiences in Edinburgh, his show, and the unlikely event that led to its creation.
Alex explains how he, as a Jewish man, attended a Nazi meeting in his New York City hometown. It wasn’t necessarily his intention to build a stand-up show around the experience, but it proved to be impossible not to.
