Impertinent Questions for Rachel Jackson

20 Jul

Rachel JacksonWhat is your favourite synonym for “bum”?

Arse. I love how Americans say ass and we say arse. Arse is funnier.

Whose swearing makes you laugh the most?

Genuinely my boyfriend makes me laugh more than anyone. He’s a naturally funny guy. He swears like a trooper. I love it. And he’s not a comedian. Comedians are generally a nightmare to be around.

Who should come to see your show and why?

Anyone who follows me on Twitter. Coz if all of them came and left a quid it be a very successful short fringe run.

Who are you excited about seeing this year?

I am excited about seeing friends and family and avoiding the actual Fringe as much as possible hahaha.

Imagine you come off stage and find a wish come true. Which food/drink/present/person would be waiting for you?

Tablet, can of Coke, a lovely bottle of perfume and Skeet Ulrich (Billy fae Scream) or Kathleen Zellner from Making a Murderer. I’m obsessed with her. Plus her and a guy who portrayed the sexiest serial killer ever would make some buzz of a night out.

Describe your perfect day at the Fringe.

Perfect day at the Fringe would consist of seeing some funny, free shows and eating some glorious food and hoping to avoid any of the wankers from the comedy scene.

How long does it take to come down after a show and how do you do it?

Honestly I just lie and stare at the ceiling for hours. I’ll usually have a hot chocolate which helps to unwind!

In the game “Would You Rather?” what’s the hardest choice you have had to make?

There’s actually a horror movie on Netflix called Would You Rather and I’d seriously recommend it. It takes that game to another level.

What’s your favourite Brexit metaphor?

There is a line my character says in Two Doors Down that reminds me of Brexit. She says ‘what you just want a plate on its own?’ Having a plate without food is like having the UK without the EU. Empty, pointless and a bit too white.

Who or what helped you believe you were going to make it in comedy?

Awwwwwwwww you think I’ve made it?

Tell us something your agent doesn’t want us to know.

My agents are pretty cool. They represent Emilia Clarke!! DRACARYS!
