“Go see all the Kiwi comedians! I might be biased, but…”
WHO: Brynley Stent
WHAT: “New Zealand’s favourite improv show and the sell-out hit of the 2019 Fringe returns! Cheeky, topical and relentlessly silly, Snort sees a rotating cast of New Zealand’s best comedians (including Rose Matafeo, Laura Daniel, Joseph Moore, Eli Matthewson, Nic Sampson, James Roque, Brynley Stent, Paul Williams, Rhiannon McCall, Freya Finch, Alice Canton and more) build an intricate hour of far-fetched, high-stakes comedy, entirely made-up on the spot, featuring a brand new guest every night.”
WHERE: Pleasance Courtyard – Upstairs (Venue 33)
WHEN: 23:00 (60 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is my first time in Edinburgh. I am an Edinburgh Fringe Virgin! I had planned to come in 2020 but then this little thing called The Pandemic happened, so this trip has been a long time coming!
What are the big things you’ve learned since 2019 and have you absorbed any of the lessons yet?
In the lock-down I spent a lot of time learning how to make a perfect Croquembouche…it has not proved useful yet.
Tell us about your show.
I perform as part of an Improv group from New Zealand called ‘Snort’ (which is a very silly name we chose on a whim and it just stuck). The show started out mainly as a way for a group of comedy friends to perform together / hang out together on a Friday night, but it became really popular and now we’ve been performing to weekly sold-out crowds in Auckland on a Friday night for almost 10 years! In Edinburgh we are being produced by the lovely people at Berk’s Nest.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Go see all the Kiwi comedians! I might be biased, but I recommend: Eli Matthewson, James Roque, Two Hearts, Abby Howells, Nic Sampson and Paul Williams.
