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, Mr Danger tells us about his show, Mr Danger’s Really Safe Show, which will be performing at Brighton Spiegeltent.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
A comedy-fuelled theatrical explosion charting the recovery of the world’s foremost daredevil who crashed jumping a motorcycle over 20 buses with a bag on his head and is now terrified of everything.
Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
I love the atmosphere of Brighton. It’s a friendly, relaxed city with intrepid audiences and superb chip buttys.
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
I’ve been doing a lot of Alexander technique. I find calmly lying on my back in a dark room, inhaling deeply, exhaling and imagining my breath is incense smoke escaping from my body does wonders for my peace of mind. I’ve also been playing a lot of Russian Roulette.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
It’s got a human cannon in it.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
I’m very excited to watch The Woman Who Shed Her Skin
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
Don’t knock over the reviewers drink While running around the audience.
If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
Cheese and ham
