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 Glen Moore answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
It’s a joke-packed, ridiculous story about moving away from a very small village, but it’s also about around 100 other things as well.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
I’ve always wanted to take a stand-up show to the Fringe knowing I’d put all my heart and soul into it, and I’ve been doing that with my sketch duo Thunderbards for the past three years. This year we’re taking a year off, so in I swoop.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Whether you’re going as a punter or a performer, see as many shows as you can, and from different genres. I don’t mean that just in terms of comedy, theatre etc, but sub-categories of each. Definitely go to see stand-up, sketch, improv, character, some crazy-ass variety.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
My jokes are quite different, so by the end you’ll be like “Ah that’s what a Glenn Moore joke sounds like,” and then you’ll be able to tell them from a mile off. Wouldn’t that be a great way to live?
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
Austentatious, Bill Burr, Louis CK and Chris Gethard are the shows I’ve already bought my tickets for, so definitely those.
Finally, the boring but essential bit…
