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 Kate Lucas answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
I’ve taken a patheticnon-brushwith death that lasted about three minutes and turned it into an absurd hour show where I get very carried away thinking what would happen if I was to pop my clogs.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
I’ve been up to Edinburgh before but never done a full hour and it feels a bit like you can’t properly call yourself a comedian until you’ve done your debut … so I’m doing it… even if it kills me (see what I did there?).
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Google Mapsisuseless to you. There’s two of every venue and everywhere you need to get to there is a hidden hill or set of steps that is faster but you’ll only realise that on your last day. See a little bit of everything, even stuff you wouldn’t usually see,there aretons of hidden gems.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer?
I’d hope there’s something in it for everyone topics wise. There are lots of different subjects covered in the songs – religion, working in an office, making a man from dead people – you know, all relatable stuff. Ultimately I always want to say the naughty things you’re not supposed to say. If that’s your thing too, please come along.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
Tough one, probably Tony Law. He’s a charismatic, mustachioed, silly weirdo and I love him. I think I fancy him a little.
Finally, the boring but essential bit…
