With time being precious during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe we challenged this year’s acts to deliver a 50-word elevator pitch for their show. This time it’s the turn of Owen Roberts.

I have let a six-year-old write my show. She writes it and I perform it. Simple right? Wrong. She can’t focus, she can’t spell, and her ideas are wildly unrealistic. The show follows the trials and tribulations of this unusual creative partnership and showcases the weird crap she’s written.

What other show shouldn’t we miss?

Ciaran Dowd as Don Rodolfo. We’ve done five Edinburgh shows together as the sketch group Beasts. This year we are both doing our first solo show, very excited to see what he’s come up with, apparently there will be sword fighting.

Name of your show: Owen Roberts: I Let A Six Year Old Write My Show

Venue: Pleasance This

Dates: 1 – 27 August 2018 (not 13)
