With over 3000 shows at the world’s biggest arts festival, here at The ReviewsHub,we want to make the job of choosing your Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows that little bit easier. So here’s Annie Siddons answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
It’s a hilarious brutal and honest autobiographical show about loneliness, with films by Live Artist Richard de Domenici and spoken word, performed by me and Adam Robertson.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
I’ve had a sweet old time the past two years with my first show, Raymondo, and I wanted to show the Edinburgh audience my new one, and hang about watching shows and talking to people, and eating fried chicken from the Codfather and drinking Vimto in the Dick.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Get a Summerhall pass.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
I haven’t seen any of the others yet so that’s a tricksy question…..there are probably a few hilarious brutal and honest autobiographical shows about loneliness going on, but none of them have films made by Richard in them, and few probably feature sea mammals, although in Edinburgh that may not be true, as shows with animals are abundant.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
Everything at Summerhall, everything at Forest Fringe, quite a lot at the Traverse, Pleasance and Underbelly, some shit hot comedy and physical comedy, some spellbinding dancing, and please God let me find a way of getting into Daniel Kitson this year.
