Annie McGrath Q&A – Edinburgh Fringe 2016

Edinburgh, the Fringe, why bother?

It’s a great place to go to ensure that you’ll never be able to afford a holiday.

What have been the nuggets of inspiration behind your show this year?

If I told you I’d have to kill myself.

Stand-out Fringe moment to date?

2010- when Patrick Turpin caught and set free the pigeon which managed to fly into our flat.

When you wished a hole had opened up in the ground and swallowed you up?

Probably in 2013 when Jack Barry and I were performing our sketch show in the corridor of a pub, with a building site as our backdrop. Trying to compete with builders drilling and bar staff answering their phones during the show was a bit of a struggle.

Your unsung heroes in the industry at current?

She’s not unsung, but I love Lou Sanders.

Three shows you must see this Fringe?

Stuart Laws, Swansong, Fin Taylor.

The one person you’d love to see your show and why?


The reason why one should come and see your show?

Why not?

The one thing in Edinburgh you must do? 

Buy your alcohol before 11pm.

Ah sorry, you’re dead. But least you can have that dinner party you’ve always wanted. Who are you inviting? 

Rik Mayall. Table for two.
