It is festival season and that means that in the next month there is so many great comedy festivals to look forward to! This month we are talking to acts performing at an array of festivals to find out more about their sets and what they have planned for their shows. Today we talk to a stand up comedian who this time last year we interviewed about his show at the Camden Fringe. Well this year he is heading up to the Edinburgh Fringe – I caught up with him to find out what he has in store for audiences.
Name Of Show: Twat Out Of Hell
Date: various between the 2-26 August
Location: Laughing Horse @ City Cafe (Venue 85)
How did you come up with the name of your show that your taking to the fringe?
Tell us a little bit about your style of stand up?
What other acts are you looking forward to seeing at the fringe?
My first time was back in 2014 when my comedy husband, Matt Smith (not that one) and I tookShitStorM’s House Party compilation show to a wet tent outside the Ibis Hotel. The next year I took my cult hit show 100 Animal Jokes up to the Fringe where I performed under a railway arch and met the awesome Wayne Carter and Ingrid Dahle. I didn’t make it up last year but did do a successful run at the Camden Fringe (which is also great, by the way) at the Etcetera Theatre.
Virtual what-now? I’m extremely tech-challenged. I can’t even press buttons on an iPad for my own tech… in fact, do you know anyone who can tech my show at the Fringe when my wife isn’t around?
What have been some of the most unique and different stand up sets you have seen this year and why?
As I said, I’m a technophobe, but my wife set-up the online thingies for me. You can catch me on…
WITH MEATLOAF SONGS!
