“My show, Dominant, is about how everything thinks women should run the world but don’t take assholes like me into account.”
WHO: Naomi Karavani: Publicist
WHAT: “Whoever said that women should rule the world clearly hadn’t met Naomi. Don’t get her wrong – she’s sure the future’s female. But when blow jobs and bombs are celebrated as feminist acts, does a female future look any less bleak? Drawing on her own experiences as a power-hungry archaeologist (seriously, they do exist), New York City teacher, and member of an eccentric Yemeni-Jewish family, expect dark, sardonic satire from the star of TV’s Redacted Tonight. ‘The finest TV satire’ (Salon.com). ‘Very funny’ (Time Out).”
WHERE: Just the Tonic at Marlin’s Wynd – Just the Wyndy Room (Venue 296)
WHEN: 20:05 (60 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
It is my first time doing Edinburgh. I visited the festival last year, to practise trying to find my way through the clusterf*ck and hordes of people. I also scouted out a venue for my show this year. I’m at Just the Tonic’s newest venue and I’m really excited to help pop the room’s cherry.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’18?
Frankie Boyle followed me on Twitter.
Tell us about your show.
My show, Dominant, is about how everything thinks women should run the world but don’t take assholes like me into account. I wrote and produced it. Edinburgh will its first public exposure. I want to tour the show wherever I can and offend all different kinds of people.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Some of my favourite comedians will be at Edinburgh this year. I’ve gotten a chance to see over the past year, but the amazing thing about Edinburgh is having such a panoply of funny all in one place. Anna Drezen is such an amazing and original joke writer and Langston Kerman always makes me laugh. And I love Anders Lee’s thought-provoking and hilarious hour.
