The long read

The Chilcot report isn't exactly a laugh a minute - but that hasn't stopped a whole host of comedians from signing up to read it out loud in its 6,000-page entirety as part of the Edinburgh Fringe. The show is the brainchild of Bob Slayer, and Stewart Lee, Simon Munnery and Reginald D Hunter are among those who'll be taking a turn. The report isn't going to be mocked or trivialised, though - the idea being to raise both awareness of its content and money for a refugee charity.
