Shappi Khorsandi: A Comedian's View Of The Edinburgh Festival

I love the Edinburgh Festival – because it means that I get to sleep in the same bed for a whole month! Comedians travel around so much that being based in Edinburgh for the entire festival makes you feel as if you've got a proper home.

I've been performing at the Edinburgh Festival for years. I was even there when I was heavily pregnant, back in 2007. I gave birth on September 13, but I was at the festival performing right until the end of August.
