The debut stand-up hour from British comedian and former Cambridge Footlight, Milo Edwards, about how he became a Russian TV star, had a gun pointed at him and discovered that the way home is sometimes hardest to find. Pindos is a show dealing with celebrity, language, politics and sending dogs into space in the name of communism. 'Fantastic... had me in hysterics' ( 'Effortlessly funny' (

A drum tight hour from a very talented young comedian on a topic - life as a Westerner in Putin's Russia - that made for a refreshing change from your stereotypical Fringe show. We laughed, we cried, we learned about firing dogs in to space. Thoroughly recommended.

We went to see Milo's show on a whim on Sunday afternoon. I'm SO glad we did. He is an excellent comic, with impeccable timing and some seriously funny stories of his time in Russia. Incredibly touching end. A must see.

Using his background studying languages, he focuses in particular on the...

Meaning ‘The American’ in Russian (even though Milo is English, he points out that anyone west of Poland is viewed as American by most Russians) Pindos examines the fleeting nature of celebrity, traversing different cultures and languages,...

Being a stand – up comedian in Russia is probably very hard. But taking that experience, making it into a routine and performing it at the Edinburgh Fringe is definitely a lot harder. Of course, you are not dealing with censorship or the fear that if you say something wrong...
