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 Neil Henry answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
The idea of this year’s show is to mess with heads, scratch the bit of the brain that needs itching and have a lot of fun doing it making mind magic extremely visual, funny and memorable.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
After the success of last year, it made sense to come again. I began writing this year’s show last year and the moment the idea for the show came to me I began to be excited to bring it to Edinburgh. Apart from anything else I just love being part of the Fringe.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Do as much as you can, OF EVERYTHING: play, work, drink, mingle, party, gig and see as many shows as you can. There is so much going on at the Fringe that if you’re not careful you can become consumed with your own stuff. Just look around and see the amazing stuff around you.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
Once the word gets round about the twist at the end of the show it will start to stand out. I mean its mental having so many shows and trying to stand out in among them but I guess the fact you are reading this means it’s standing out a bit! I have just done my best to put together a show of stuff that really messes with heads and makes people laugh at the same time. Plus there’s a brain on my poster.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
Puddles Pity Party, Tiff Stevenson and Tom Crosbie.
Finally, the boring but essential bit…
