Runner: Iona Bannerman
First up was singer songwriter Joe Stilgo who dazzled the audience with his amazing keyboard skills and witty songs. Then came the very cool Hannah Gadsby entertaining the audience with her thoughts on bungee jumping - something I can relate to! Next up were Benet Brandworth (son of Giles) and charming sketch troupe Wit Tank giving us the best impersonation of a talking horse...EVER.

More impressions were to come when impressionist extraordinaire Jonathan Watson joined Fred on the sofa to chat about his show and upcoming television work. Soon the audience got involved after Susan 'The Calminator' Calman found some willing participants, with one gentleman doing a hilarious submarine and elephant impression. I loved the Miss Marple one too - high five Maureen!
First time Fringe performer James Acaster did some stand up involving a cheese grater and on the sofa John Maloney cracked the audience up with his hilarious tale about a letter written to him by a dog. The animal theme continued with king of one-liners Tim Vine and his cat rescue by the Fire Brigade joke, which again had the audience in stitches. Also joining Fred on the sofa was Andy Parsons who chatted about his television programme, "Mock the Week" and his current performances at Edinburgh Festival.

Today's show was jam packed with amazing guests and some weird and wonderful impressions. What's in store tomorrow?! The suspense is killing me...
