A comedian is to attempt a world record by performing the most stand-up gigs in 24 hours in Edinburgh.
Paul Foot is planning to do at least 20 shows on Wednesday at accredited venues listed in the Fringe Festival programme.
A finalist on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" in the USA, Mr Foot, will perform each gig in a different show.
There must be a different audience each time and each performance must be no shorter than five minutes.
The attempt will start at 1215 BST on 20 August at Venue 353 - Laughing Horse @ The Argyle and is scheduled to end about 0230 BST on 21 August at Venue 264 - Laughing Horse @ Meadow Bar.
Paul Foot is a Winner of The BBC New Comedy Award and Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award.
