Back by popular demand for 2017, our Brighton Bites series offer short, witty and slightly tongue-in-cheek insights into shows performing at England’s largest arts festival. Hopefully, they will whet your appetite to try something new at this year’s Brighton Fringe.
Here, Greg Byron tells us about his show, Slooshy Wordshow, which he’ll be performing at the Rialto Theatre.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
A look at life’s absurdities, frustrations and lies damn lies, using rhythm and rhyme and an occasional pointy finger…
Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
It’s a world premiere of a full-length show – a culmination of ideas and international appearances – these are previews for the Edinburgh Fringe. And I live in Eastbourne so why not!
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
Red wine. Usually Shiraz.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
I’ve never done a full show of poetry before.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
Motherhood (un)Speakable (un)Spoken by Joanna Rosenfeld
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
Tutti Frutti – it’s old, practically unattainable these days , and a combination of many different flavours.
