Comedy in the Dark: My Edinburgh
22nd Jul 2016
We switched on the lights to chat with the team behind Comedy in the Dark about what to expect from their late night Edition this Fringe (Udderbelly, George Square 11 & 25 August)...
Have you performed at the Fringe before?
Yes, we have. We’ve been coming to Edinburgh since 2011 with our sell out comedy experience.
Where’s your favourite spot in Edinburgh?
We enjoy dark places; the cemetery at night, the sewers and Edinburgh vaults are always fun.
What will you be packing in your suitcase for the Fringe?
Our facemask, a lightbulb and torch (for emergency purposes only).
Do you know who Greyfriars Bobby is?
Yes, we think we met him once in the cemetery late one night.
What’s the best show you’ve ever seen at the Fringe?
We don’t like shows we have seen. We prefer to sit and listen. In the dark.
What’s the best piece of advice you’d give (or have been given) about the Fringe?
Shows are best when the lights are on (although ours is pretty funny with the lights off).
To ceilidh or not to ceilidh?
Definitely not. Unless it’s in the dark.
What can audiences expect from your show?
Darkness. Jokes. & probably a naked comedian. (Only once has a member of the audience taken all their clothes off. The lights came back on and they were revealed – in every sense of the word. It was VERY funny and we hope no one does that this year (we do hope; we hope someone does it. it would be funny).
