Manwatching, a play about the female gaze and objectification of men, returns to Edinburgh in August after a successful run at the Royal Court.

The play is written by an anonymous female playwright who has described what she thinks of when she fantasises about sex with men and it's performed each night by a different male comedian, who is reading the script for the very first time. The playing order of the comedians, including Mark Watson and Andrew O'Neill has been announced, as follows:

4 August: Tony Law

5 August: Andrew Maxwell

6 August: Keith Farnan

7 August: Edward Aczel
