Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is year four for Goodbear. We had a year off last year and didn’t know what to do with ourselves – we felt lost, vulnerable, weak and scared. Now we’re heading back up to Edinburgh and we feel lost, vulnerable, weak and scared.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’18?
There are so many high profile achievements it’s hard to pick our top two (we’ve spent a lot of time in LA), but if we were pushed it would be Henry getting a part in a meerkat advert and Joe doing an advert dressed as a chicken…
Tell us about your show.
Our show is a narrative-driven, sketch comedy show. It’s accompanied by an original score written by Max Perryment and you’ll see some crazy characters (look out for the mad doctor – he’s mad). It was written by us and directed by our friend, mentor and doctor, George Chilcott (he’s mad).
The three of us all met at Leeds University (2:1, 2:1, 2;2*)
*We don’t feel at liberty to say who got the 2:2.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
(George got the 2:2)
The Tattoo, there’s a lovely little pub called The Brass Monkey and, of course, the beer gardens around George Square are a delight.
In all seriousness, you’d be mad to miss the following: Ed MacArthur, Jack Barry, Annie McGrath, Giants, Janine Harouni, Roisin and Chiara, Ben Pope, Chris Bliss, Nicola Wren, Sunil Patel, Goose and Gabby Best.
