Justin Edwards as Jeremy Lions: Twelve Days Of Christmas

"This was the finale to what remains one of my favourite Edinburgh shows ever: Jeremy Lions's Happy Christmas. Put a grown man in an ill-fitting children's entertainer costume, stick him in a metal container at 2pm every day, add more booze than the average rock band's rider and some of the best costumes ever seen in a Fringe show, and funny is what you get.

What's more, as part of The Consultants, Justin had to perform a slick, wordy sketch show just hours later, every day for a whole month. Most comics think they're wrecked by the end of Edinburgh, but in 2003 this man was the epitome of the word.

He's a tremendous, inspirational performer, from his ingenious songs to his appearances on shows such as The Thick Of It, and Jeremy Lion deserves Partridge levels of renown."
