“This is my second hour. That difficult self-produced second album but yeah I’m actually really proud of this show.”
WHO: Faye Treacy
WHAT: “Faye Treacy’s highly anticipated new show (Musical Comedy Awards Best Newcomer, as featured on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Three). A captivating storyteller, comedian and loose cannon, Faye’s toured the world as a musician since a teenager. You can run away from most things on the road – except yourself. When the unimaginable happens, Faye finally battles her demons head-on, learning that maturing isn’t the same as conforming. Expect big revelations, bigger laughs, and maybe a little music. ‘One of the most unique performances you’ll see at the Fringe this year… genius, inescapably memorable’ ****½ (ShortCom.co.uk)”
WHERE: PBH’s Free Fringe @ Banshee Labyrinth (Venue 156)
WHEN: 23:50 (60 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
No, this is my second hour. That difficult self-produced second album but yeah I’m actually really proud of this show. It’s honest and real and I think I’m older now and don’t care as much but it’s still a heartwarming hour I hope… I love the Fringe, so many amazing shows and acts to see. It’s all really exciting and inspiring.
What are the big things you’ve learned since 2019 and have you absorbed any of the lessons yet?
I haven’t been up to Edinburgh since 2018 but I guess I’m trying to remember that no-one cares about the festival outside of the festival.
Tell us about your show.
It’s about how I took acid and saw a warrior in the mirror and went off in search of her. Tour life, gigs, then the pandemic hit and I was stuck teaching so had to dig real deep inside to find her.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Go see my old flatmate Lauren Pattison, if you can get a ticket. She’s a charming storyteller, just pulls you in. I think it’s only a matter of time before she’s massive. She’s really got something. Also, check out Phil Ellis, he’s also my mate but I think he’s the most natural comedian I’ve ever come across.
