BRIGHTON BITES: Samantha Baines -1 Woman, A Dwarf Planet and 2 Cox

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, Samantha Baines tells us about her show, 1 Woman, A Dwarf Planet and 2 Cox, which she’ll be performing at The Warren.

 

How would you describe your show in one sentence?
Science meets funny with facts and Cox (Brian).

Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
Because I love the Brighton Fringe. I previewed this show in Brighton last year and it’s now had a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and some nice reviews so I thought I’d bring back the finished item for the people of Brighton. I’m also touring the show at some science festivals around the country.

How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
I’ve been using a weighted hula hoop to hula While I watch TV – I think that helps with most things. I can keep it up for 20 mins straight now #showoff

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
It is stand up comedy about science and has got some really nice reviews. It also has me in it which is different from every other show at the festival (apart from my other show which I am previewing).

What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
Kelly Convey’s show You Can’t Polish A Turd – I have gigged with her lots and she’s great.

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
“Don’t”. But that’s not very inspiring is it so how about “just do it”, that was from my mates who make trainers.

If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
I am lactose intolerant so this is a hard question for me… I’ve got 99 problems …. how about apple flavoured ice-cream in honour of Isaac Newton with tiny star sprinkles. Yay.

1 Woman, A Dwarf Planet and 2 Cox runs at Brighton Fringe 6-7 and 20-21 May
