Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
Nope, we made our debut last year and caught the bug… the Edinburgh Fringe Bug, you understand – not some sort of sickness bug. We enjoyed it so much last year that we had to return, and we’re so glad we have. We’re having a great time!
Tell us about your show.
It’s a comedy sketch show, and we write, produce and direct it all ourselves…what saints we are! We met at East 15 Acting School and decided to become a double act a few years after graduating. Our show this year is actually a very similar show to the one we took to Edinburgh in 2015, as we didn’t really attract the audiences we had hoped to (due to the fact that it was our debut and there are hundreds of other comedy shows at the Fringe!).
So, we felt it would be a real shame to put the show that we had worked so hard on to bed before showcasing it at the festival once more. In September, we plan to start writing new material and working on our next show… Bring it on!
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Baby Wants Candy! They’re a Chicago-based improv troupe who perform a completely improvised musical on the spot, with a full band. We saw it a few days ago and thought it was hilarious. We had tears running down our face.
