If you missed last year’s Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Richard Gadd, here is your chance to see it.

Close your eyes and picture Edinburgh. What do you see?

The meadows. Green, wet grass. Giant billboards everywhere. Oh, and it’s raining. Always fucking raining.

What is the last thing that made you snort with laughter?

I am dead inside.

Tell us about this year’s show.

It is a comedy/theatre show which takes place entirely in my head while I run on a treadmill. It won the Edinburgh Comedy Award last year and is returning for ten days only.

Who do you want to see this year?

Hannah Gadsby. She arrives having won the Barry Award in a show I have only heard incredible things about.

Do you have any Edinburgh Fringe traditions?

A kebab and a cry in the Elfalafel Kebab House in Bristo Place.

What is your getting ready music?

Travelling Wilburys – Tweeter and the Monkey Man.

If you could have any guest in your show, who would it be?

Peter Hitchens. Just to see the look on his face.

What is the best backhanded compliment you have had?

‘I can really see your comedy working in a completely different setting.’

Who made you howl with laughter when you were a child?

Laurel & Hardy.

What should Donald Trump know?

That he is making art tedious.

What do you do in Edinburgh that your parents wouldn´t approve of?

My comedy.

Catch Richard Gadd: Monkey See Monkey Do at 11pm at Summerhall 18-27 August only.

In the Hot Seat: Carmen Lynch

27 Jul

Photograph of Carmen LynchOne of Amy Schumer’s absolute favourite comedians is coming to the Edinburgh Fringe for the very first time!

Close your eyes and picture Edinburgh. What do you see? 

I see Arthur’s Seat, but I’m standing at the bottom. I need to work on my visualizations.

What is the last thing that made you snort with laughter? 

When my 8 year old niece asked me why I wasn’t famous.

Tell us about this year’s show? 

It’s a bunch of my favourite jokes -thoughts about death and Jesus balanced with some lighter topics like animals and cupcakes.

Do you have any Edinburgh Fringe traditions? 

If I had to predict (since I don’t know yet), I would guess lots coffee and aimless wandering leading to getting lost and taking pictures.

What is your getting ready music?

Old upbeat music like Britney Spears or Wham. The more embarrassed I’d be to getting busted dancing to it, the better.

If you could have any guest in your show, who would it be? 

Robert Downey Jr. Everything he does seems so effortless and real. I want to take in some of that energy, but I’d probably just creepily stare.

What is the best backhanded compliment you have ever had?

‘Keep doing what you’re doing – you have a lot of potential!’

Who made you howl with laughter when you were a child? 

John Ritter as Jack Tripper on Three’s Company. His physical comedy and facial expressions were top-notch on every episode.

What should Donald Trump know?

Nothing. He’s Donald Trump.

What do you do in Edinburgh that your parents wouldn’t approve of?

It’s what I won’t do – the dishes!

In the Hot Seat: Carl Donnelly

One of our longstanding favourites, make sure you see Carl performing “The Nutter on the Bus” on an actual bus…

Close your eyes and picture Edinburgh. What do you see?

That’s a good question. The opening question to about 90% of Q&As is “What made you become a comedian”. I love Edinburgh. Not just the Fringe but the actual city. When I close my eyes and picture it, I see the view over the city from the top of Arthur’s Seat. It’s rare that you can walk for 30 minutes from a city centre and then be looking over the whole city from the top of an ancient volcano.

What is the last thing that made you snort with laughter?

Comedian (and my partner in crime) Chris Martin said the word “panties” in an American accent during a conversation the other day and it really caught me off guard. It was totally out of the blue and it really gave us the giggles. We have the ability to just catch each other with a phrase that turns us into giggling idiots. Last night we were having a conversation while driving about how Ed Sheeran pops up in a lot of stuff currently. I turned to Chris and said “He’s like onions and garlic. They’re also in a lot of things” Needless to say, he nearly crashed the car due to my stupidity.

Tell us about this year’s show.

It’s a selection of stories about some of my more alternative life choices over the last few years that I’ve made in a bid to better myself and take control of my emotions and mental state. Four years ago I was on anti-depressants, in therapy and generally existing in a state of constant apathy. Now I’m much happier but on paper I think people would question some of the things I’ve done to get to this point as they include ‘alternative therapies’. I’m prone to the odd hippy excursion and partaking in hallucinogenic ceremonies that involve a lot of crying and vomiting.

Who do you want to see this year?

Loads of stuff. It’s the biggest arts festival in the world so I could see something in every waking hour and still not see everything I wanted to. The first show I am seeing (on its opening night) is Hannah Gadsby’s show. She’s excellent.

Do you have any Edinburgh Fringe traditions?

Day one I go shopping with Jimmy McGhie for nice house things for our accommodation. It sounds silly but we’re living in a flat that isn’t ours for a month so I think it’s important to make it feel like home. We go and buy new bedsheets, towels, incense (or scented candles depending on our mood) and other nice bits and bobs.

What is your getting ready music?

INXS’ Need You Tonight is one I constantly return to when getting ready for my show. During the day when I’m relaxing I tend to have a lot of chilled ambient types of music (Brian Eno is a regular on the daytime playlist). The moment it gets to near showtime and I need a little energy boost, INXS get called off the bench. If you get the chance, watch the official video for Need You Tonight. It’s on YouTube and you will get to see one of the greatest rock lead singers in his prime. He was so sexy that even as a heterosexual man, that video does things to me.

If you could have any guest in your show, who would it be?

See question 6. Hutchence in his prime. He died far too young so it would be great to have him back with us.

What is the best backhanded compliment you have had?

I won the Chortle Award for ‘Best Club Comedian’ this year which I was very touched to receive but a tiny part of me can’t help but hear that title as a backhanded compliment. It kind of sounds like that’s all I do.  The comedy circuit is varied and in some ways quite fractured. Some comics only play clubs, some only do festivals etc. I like to think of myself as being one of the group that are able to play all facets of the circuit. I play festivals all around the world, perform at most clubs, do two podcasts and plenty more. Basically I was honoured to win but like all comedians I managed to see some negative in a nice thing.  Part of me wants there to be a ‘Best Comedian Who Does Loads of Stuff’ award which I could win.

Who made you howl with laughter when you were a child?

Dave Allen. He’s one of the few childhood heroes who lasted the journey into adulthood. I still think of him as one of my biggest comedy influences.

What should Donald Trump know?

If ever there is someone who needs to take a heavy dose of hallucinogens (with the aid of a shaman in a controlled environment of course) it’s old Donald. He’s the most egotistical person I’ve ever seen. He’s incapable of answering a question without it being about him. If he’s asked about nuclear deterrents, rather than answer with any fact or opinion, he prefaces it with a comment about how much ‘he’ knows about nuclear deterrents. It’s fascinating to watch.  I think he needs an experience where he is detached from his ego and can see the irrelevance of his own existence as an individual. I recommend he go to an ayahuasca retreat for a week to learn the interconnectivity of all things and how small a part of that he actually is.

What do you do in Edinburgh that your parents wouldn´t approve of?

They would not be too happy that I talk about them onstage. They feature quite heavily in this show as a lot of my past mental health issues can be traced back to my childhood. Luckily for me, they never come to see my shows. They also don’t have the internet so have no way of finding out that I’m discussing them.

Catch Carl Donnelly: The Nutter on the Bus at 7.30pm at Heroes @ Bob’s Blundabus throughout August

In the Hot Seat: Tiernan Douieb

26 Jul

Photo of Tiernan DouiebClose your eyes and picture Edinburgh. What do you see?

Beautiful cobbled streets, Arthur’s Seat and the Castle looming over them with sheer presence. And me not being able to really look at any of that because I’m trying to dodge being flyered for a drunk version of a play about alcoholism while not getting hit in the face by horizontal rain. In summer.

What is the last thing that made you snort with laughter?

Actually it was watching Nick Kroll and John Mulaney’s Oh Hello On Broadway on Netflix. There’s some many excellent gags but a couple in particular that made me snort and spill my drink. Before that it was a picture of a tiny Pomeranian dog that looked very cute but had been named ‘Mr Wilson.’ I have very unstable comedy tastes.

Tell us about this year’s show.

Well I usually write topical political material but as this past year or so has been so eventful, I got a tad fed up with re-writing jokes every 5 minutes. So this year’s show is more generally political and looks at why people (including me) get stuck in their opinions and why it’s impossible to make everyone happy. Except the audiences of my shows, obvs. Ahem. I’ve even tried to get angry this year but apparently I’ve still not quite managed it, so instead there’s lots of jokes and one use of the word ‘banana.’

Who do you want to see this year?

I’m most excited about seeing Andy Daly at the Gilded Balloon. His show Review With Forest McNeil made me howl with laughter, as did his appearances on Comedy Bang Bang and his Podcast Pilot Show. Daly has an incredible ability – that I’m super jealous of – where just his facial expressions have you in stitches and he tows the fine line between comedy & tragedy so perfectly. If you get a chance, google ‘Jerry O’Hearn (Andy Daly)’  where he does 5 mins of stand-up that is just comedy tropes and no actual jokes. It’s incredibly funny. I’m on The Alternative Comedy Memorial Society with him at the Monkey Barrel on August the 6th and honestly worried I’ll act like an idiot fan boy.

Do you have any Edinburgh Fringe traditions?

Yes but they are pretty much all food based. They involve visiting Mary’s Milk Bar as often as possible. Having a giant baked potato only once, then regretting it all day as I can’t move due to a food coma. Also eating at Koyama Japanese restaurant which is always excellent. Oh and also the tradition of me saying ‘I won’t do too many extra shows this year apart from my own one’ then getting booked in to do loads of extra shows.

What is your getting ready music?

I haven’t picked it yet as this year I think I’m just going to choose a playlist based on music my tech Sarah likes as she has to hear it 20+ times. Though she has given me her preferences of Prince or Bowie, so I’m very happy with that. I think she only likes dead musicians.

If you could have any guest in your show, who would it be?

Mr.Wilson. He’s my new hero.

What is the best backhanded compliment you have had?

There’s a lot to pick from. Recently I had ‘I don’t really like comedy but that show was great.’ Good. It appeals to people who don’t like comedy. That’s exactly what I wanted. Sigh.

Who made you howl with laughter when you were a child?

The Muppets. All of them really but particularly the running gag in Muppets In Manhattan where they insist Kermit and Fozzie are twins but the only way to tell bears and frogs apart is because bears wear hats. Joyous silliness.

What should Donald Trump know?

I feel like this requires a 10,000 word essay response but aside from just putting ‘Anything. I wish he’d know anything at all apart from his own narcissistic needs’, I think the answer would be that the more he protests about his connections with Russia the more we’re convinced there are some. He’s now said ‘I’ve no connections with Russia’ so many times I’m starting to think he’s constantly in the Kremlin and all the rest of the world sees is a hologram projected to various locations. This would explain his odd skin tone and fear of stairs.

What do you do in Edinburgh that your parents wouldn´t approve of?

Eat at Mary’s Milk Bar as often as possible. My parents are pretty chilled but no one should eat as much ice cream as I attempt to in August.

Catch Tiernan Douieb: Miserably Happy at 2.30pm at the Waverley Bar throughout August. Tiernan is one of our top shows this year

In the Hot Seat: Charlie Baker

25 Jul

Photograph of Charlie Baker

Punchline favourite Charlie Baker returns with another cracker of a show

Close your eyes and picture Edinburgh. What do you see?

I first performed at the festival as an 11 year old and it had a major effect on me. I did a show at The George Square Theatre and if I close my eyes I see wet cobbles in front with showbiz red and white lights reflecting off them. By coincidence this year my show is at The Omnitorium next to the GST. Life is both strange and wonderful.

What is the last thing that made you snort with laughter?

My wife doing an impression of me when I’d just mistakenly fallen out with someone in a shop. The impression was of me backtracking realising I was wrong.

Tell us about this year’s show.

It’s a very funny one man stand up comedy show/ juke box musical of the last two years of my life. A love letter to my family and 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 00’s pop music, a celebration of nostalgia. Also tap dancing and terrible trumpet.

Who do you want to see this year?

Camille O’Sullivan who I gigged with for ten minutes five years ago and she blew me away. John Robins is always very funny. Tom Allen has his best hour ever this year Suzi Ruffell has become a very different very funny comedy voice. Rosie Jones is one of the funniest people I’ve ever met so I’m looking forward to her show. Those Chinese drummers are always good for clearing a hangover. Spencer Jones is incredible. The act that’s made me laugh the most this year is Pat Cahill. He’s special.

Do you have any Edinburgh Fringe traditions?

A big old walk around the venues the day before the first show. Drinking it all in.

What is your getting ready music?

As my shows  often have music in them I don’t listen to too much to get ready. I try and find a place of internal calm and stay there during during the festival so I find myself listening to lots of folk and singer songwriters. Joni Mitchell is never off the playlist for four weeks.

If you could have any guest in your show, who would it be?

I had an idea of a joke this year where a dog comes on and bites me but having tried puppets lighting/sound effects/ my son dressed up I  haven’t been able to work out how to do it successfully. So a good guest would have been a talented celebrity dog off Britain’s Got Talent. Unfortunately the joke has been cut due to being unexpectedly unfunny. I’m pleased I didn’t hire the celebrity dog.

What is the best backhanded compliment you have had? 

I often get called an ‘All rounder’ normally by people trying to dilute my stand up credentials from my hard graft in comedy clubs. The fact that I sing dance and play has no bearing on the fact that I am a stand up comedian. Cut me and I bleed a tight 20.

Who made you howl with laughter when you were a child?

Vic and Bob. Harry Enfield, The Krankies, Cannon and Ball, I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue taped off the radio, Tommy Cooper, Max Miller.

What should Donald Trump know?

When to admit you’re out of your depth.

What do you do in Edinburgh that your parents wouldn´t approve of?

I’m a grown ass man. I no longer look for or need my parents’ approval.

Catch Charlie Baker: The Hit Polisher at 8pm at the Assembly George Square Theatre throughout August

In the Hot Seat: Tom Ward

22 Jul

Photograph of Tom WardNext up, it’s Tom Ward!

Close your eyes and picture Edinburgh. What do you see?

Noise, street performers, cobbles, young posh faces shouting about 5 stars, me hunched outside a café trying not to turn to vapour

What is the last thing that made you snort with laughter?

Cardinal Burns live, doing their Mancunian drug casualties sketch. The men are genius

Tell us about this year’s show.

It’s about loss and acceptance I think. Trying to retrace my steps, work out where it all went so ‘right’. But I don’t do heavy weight subjects very well so there’s a lot of dodging going on.

Who do you want to see this year?

Rob Auton, John Kearns, Rose Matafeo

Do you have any Edinburgh Fringe traditions?

Watch Rob Auton’s new show, eat macaroons, go to the Victorian swimming pool, hang around in the Loft Bar far too much, look for places to dance and fail for the first three weeks and then parties miraculously start appearing in week 4.

What is your getting ready music?

80’s synth – Yazoo, Depeche Mode, New Order or jingly indie – House of Love, Stone Roses

If you could have any guest in your show, who would it be?

Cardinal Burns. Though I might be intimidated by them and forget who I am or some other stage blank

What is the best backhanded compliment you have had?

‘That was great, I was doing that kitchen cupboards joke 10 years ago, it’s great to see it come back around’ (Well known comedian). I asked him to tell me his version but he didn’t want to. His work had been done.

Who made you howl with laughter when you were a child?

Bobby Davro, Vic and Bob, Jerry Lewis

What should Donald Trump know?
That he is not special, it’s a misunderstanding within his brain. And that those closest to him don’t love him they just like noise and confidence and money

What do you do in Edinburgh that your parents wouldn´t approve of?
Dress up as my mum on stage and talk about her son Tom wanking in sheds as a teenager

Catch Tom Ward: Love Machine at 3.40pm at Just the Tonic at the Tron throughout August

In the Hot Seat: Dane Baptiste

21 Jul

Photo of Dane BaptisteWe can’t wait to see Dane’s show this year. But until then, we have asked him some questions to keep us going…

Close your eyes and picture Edinburgh. What do you see?

A Royal Mile of cobblestones lined with the hopeful, the curious and the desperate. And Predator for some reason.

What is the last thing that made you snort with laughter?

A baby beatboxing on Instagram. I’m easily pleased.

Tell us about this year’s show.

This year’s show is called G.O.D. That’s for Gold, Oil and Drugs. The show is about worship, faith, science and religion. It’s about mashed potatoes and bears, but you’ll have to see it to learn more.

Who do you want to see this year?

Kae Kurd, Twayna Mayne, Maddy Anholt, Bobby Mair, Thaniya Moore; there’s too many to name.

Do you have any Edinburgh Fringe traditions?

Spending more money than anticipated; and threatening to run away about once a week.

What is your getting ready music?

Hardcore aggressive Hip-Hop, the perfect genre to address the liberal artisan crowd at the fringe.

If you could have any guest in your show, who would it be?

No preference really; if they laugh and pay, they stay.

What is the best backhanded compliment you have had?

“You’re ACTUALLY funny”. Well I actually don’t give a fudge what you think.

Who made you howl with laughter when you were a child?

My cousin Marvin, he’s the ‘Comedian of the Family’. So I guess that makes me the well-adjusted one without any repressed resentment and something to prove…

What should Donald Trump know?

That when the American empire burns; history will remember him as Nero. And then on closer study he will be the 21st century’s Caligula.

What do you do in Edinburgh that your parents wouldn´t approve of?

Continue to pursue an unstable career while remain childless and not owning property.

In the Hot Seat: David Trent

21 Jul

Photo of David TrentIt’s two weeks until the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe! In the run up to the most exciting event on the planet, we will be asking our favourite acts some searching questions. Who better to start with than one of our all- time favourites, the mighty David Trent.

Close your eyes and picture Edinburgh. What do you see?

I see a massive fuck off mountain with city built into the side of it with a big bridge and a newsagent at the end of it where you can get a banana condom.

What is the last thing that made you snort with laughter?

I’ve not snorted with laughter at anything for a while, but I have snorted with pride and trying not to cry when I watch someone I like win at Wimbledon, or when I listened to McEnroe’s Desert Island Discs, oh my goodness, I love Johnny Mac.

Tell us about this year’s show.

I’ll tell you the truth, it’s my best one and it doesn’t have a single routine in it that I don’t love. Every other show I’ve done has had a bit in it that I’ve had to hold my breath and go “right, head down, you know this bit is shit but it’ll be over in ten minutes” whereas this one I love every single bit of it. It’s my funniest show. I always struggle with this question because I believe that it’s not a film, the narrative or the theme of the show isn’t so important to a comedy audience but if you need a theme it’s that there’s a lot of stupid things aren’t there and let’s laugh at those stupid things.

Who do you want to see this year?

What is the purpose of this question? Do you want me to recommend shows? I don’t have any particular ones I want to see, but I’m going to make an effort this year to try and spend my time in Edinburgh how I used to before I was a comedian, walking around and going to things as and when I stumbled across them. I used to love doing that so much and I’ve stopped doing it as much in my last few visits.

Do you have any Edinburgh Fringe traditions?

Yes. I have an Edinburgh tradition of avoiding developing any traditions. I feel like this answer is the worst answer I have ever given.

What is your getting ready music?

Usually my loyal tech Homebrew Hingley will play my guitar acoustically while we wait for the show before us to finish. He will play a bit of Smiths and I will think “shut up Homebrew, I’m trying to focus on getting into a high state of anxiety about how few people will be out there.”

If you could have any guest in your show, who would it be?

Johnny Marr. I would get him to teach a wider repertoire of songs to Homebrew Hingley for the pre show.

What is the best backhanded compliment you have had?

WOAH SHIT. I just got a show cancelled because “Basically, the company doing the show on the Saturday has vetoed the booking, as they think the audience won’t be comedy literate enough.” I’m so comedy, that I’m unsuitable to play a comedy gig.

Who made you howl with laughter when you were a child?

The Young Ones. Holy fuck. Changed the game. I was 11, it built me.

What should Donald Trump know?

Who the fuck is Donald Trump?

What do you do in Edinburgh that your parents wouldn´t approve of?

Nothing. My parents know who I am.

Thanks for having me Punchline. You are good people. x

Punchline’s 2017 Fringe Recommendations

9 Jul Photo of Sara Pascoe

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Last year we recommended Richard Gadd and Larry Dean who went onto win the Edinburgh Comedy Award and Amused Moose Award…

This year is set to be a belter. As ever, these are our shows we already know we´ll love, and we will continue to recommend shows throughout the Fringe. We’re not doing YouTube videos this year as these acts have to be experienced live to see just how brilliant they are.

Sara Pascoe has always had major talent but since her 2016 book Animal: The Autobiography of a Female Body, she has unleashed a surge of confidence and insight as never before. She is showing a new stylistic freedom and incredible energy that make her 2017 show unmissable. Her time has come. @sarapascoe

Let David be your Virgil as he leads you through the circles of hell that exist in politics and popular culture. He´s got a great line in pumped up technology, which is put together as beautifully as his finely written material. Don´t let his stern demeanour stop you seeing the shrewd passion that drives his outstanding comedy. @mistertrent

We´ve always loved Steen´s mix of character comedy and non-confrontational audience participation with a just a touch of aching poignancy. If you liked him on TV´s Top Coppers, you´ll be crazy about him live. He shone in Edinburgh 2016 and this year he really will be one of the coolest kids in comedy. @steenrasko

The pulsing heart of total immersion Fringe comedy is back in Queen Dome to exhilarate, terrify and delight us with his unique combination of great writing and blasts of improvised chaos.  The suspense and surprise make every night deliciously different so go early in case you have to go back for more. @TigcoRiches

2.30pm @ Waverley Bar

Tiernan has a happy temperament and sparkling intelligence but life so often has a way of putting all that to the test. His perfect comic expression of the struggle to sift the sense from the nonsense is both daring and soothing. He takes an unflinching look at the current issues that worry us all but he´s just what the doctor ordered to bring out that sneaking optimism in us all. @TiernanDouieb

We are twitching with anticipation to see Kiri´s new show.  She is the co-host of podcast All Killa No Filla and does a great line in rip-roaring stories that men don´t usually get to hear. She tells it like it is and gets shrieks of laughter in return. @kiripritchardmc

8.20pm @ Heroes @ Monkey Barrel

If you have ever felt that adult life seems to have forgotten to include the utterly joyous laughter of childhood, then this is the show for you. Spencer takes you with him from the beginning and the comic energy just builds and builds. Carefree belly laughs from a man who says, eyes twinkling, that he can´t believe he´s allowed to do this as a job. @spendals

You may have seen this politically and socially astute comedian on Frankie Boyle´s New World Order with his fearless, on-point comments.
