The Edinburgh fringe festival starts this weekend. Some of the best new comedy talent will be on show hoping to impress the numerous talent scouts lurking in the crowds. Commissioning editor for BBC radio comedy Paul Mayhew-Archer and stand up comic Janey Godley discuss if it's still necessary for comedians to follow the traditional route of bars, stand-up clubs, radio 2, radio 4 and then TV.
