Steve Best: Clicking Comedians: Pleasance Dome, Edinburgh, 2018

Steve Best is a great comedian and a brilliant photographer.  An exhibition of his photographic work called Clicking Comedians was at the Pleasance Dome during the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2018 and I went along to have a look.  Best has been a funny man for many years and he has got to know hundreds of comics which has enabled him to gain exclusive access to the world of comedy.  Many photos feature comedians relaxing pre and post gig.  My two favourite photographs from the display were of Sarah Pascoe caught laughing and Phil Nichol in typical manic on stage pose.  I look forward to his third book of photos and stories (the other two that I have purchased Comedy Snapshot and Jokerface are highly recommended) and I wish him every success with future projects.
