“I’m coming back to do the FULL MONTH and all the excitement, exhuastion, and sex that comes with that.”
WHO: Zach Zimmerman: Writer/Performer
WHAT: “My mom says I should focus on clean comedy for my career. F*ck that. Please join me, a Time Out New York Comic to Watch 2019 (stop it, I’m blushing) as I skewer my traumatic Southern Baptist childhood and equally painful gay NYC adulthood. It’s my debut hour at the Fringe, it’ll be equal parts adorable and hot, and will delight my mother in title only.”
WHERE: Gilded Balloon Patter Hoose – Dram (Venue 24)
WHEN: 22:45 (60 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
Yes! Sorta! Last year, I decided at the last minute to visit the Fringe and throw up a show for the final week of the Fringe and see what the fest was all about. I had a blast, more sex than I planned for, and now I’m coming back to do the FULL MONTH and all the excitement, exhuastion, and sex that comes with that.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’18?
I quit my job! And changed my anti-depressants! In that order!
Tell us about your show.
“Clean Comedy” is my fun stand-up hour about being gay in a Southern Baptist, evangelical home in Virginia, my (mis)adventures in love in Chicago and New York, and how my mom wishes I wouldn’t talk about any of that. If you’re wondering what it’s like to open for a drag queen, repress your sexuality, and get dumped on a plane…this is the show for you!
I wrote and performed it, some friends Carol and Rob Walport are helping me bring it to the Fringe, and it’s directed by the wonderful Dec Munro.
It’s 90% funny, 10% sad, and 100% fabulous.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
After buying a ticket for all 26 performances of “Clean Comedy” at the Gilded Balloon, check out a few of my friends! Go see Golden Delicious’ drag show at CC Blooms, Mary Houlihan’s absurd play about dating Jack Nicholson, Dave Maher’s follow-up to his show about being in a coma, and Cat Cohen’s incredible musical madness.
