Hatty Ashdown tells the story of her lovely Mum… Holding the neighbourhood’s worries in her Worry Drawer, Pat was the heart of her working-class community. Following her death, Hatty searched for the Worry Drawer hoping it would reveal the secrets to dealing with life’s anxieties. This charmingly funny dedication to her mum sees Hatty ask: is there a single solution to every type of worry? Did the Worry Drawer actually exist? And did Pat Ashdown have the answers to a worry-free life all along? Hatty is at the Voodoo Rooms with the Free fringe from 6 – 28 August

Phil Hammond is bringing two shows Edinburgh this year. First up is Dr Hammond’s Covid Enquiry at The Space@symposium Hall from 13-27 August. Private Eye’s MD and best-selling author of Dr Hammond’s Covid Casebook dissects the pandemic. The more certain someone is about Covid, the less you should trust them. Do we know what went right and wrong? Could we have prevented it? Why are experts so polarised? Can you trust a leader who petrifies the people while partying? Should we have copied Sweden? Or Taiwan? Have vaccines saved us? Will we be kinder to animals and children? Are pandemics here to stay? Can we disagree without hate? Warning. May contain traces of doubt, compassion, humour, nuance and batshit.

Phil’s second show, How I Ruined Medicine, features the outrageous confessions of a retiring NHS whistleblower (Phil!). Doctoring used to be like Downing Street. Posh unaccountable alcoholics working silly hours, cocking up, covering up and laughing it off. Then Phil broke ranks and ruined it. For 37 he’s exposed its darkest secrets. The NHS is still dangerously understaffed and error-strewn but now everybody knows it. I’ve spawned an army of regulators, lawyers and aggressively informed patients demanding excellent care in a collapsing service. You’re even supposed to know what you’re doing and prove it. See this show at The Space@Surgeon’s Hall from 13-27 August.
