Gordon Southern Q&A – Edinburgh Fringe 2016

Edinburgh, the Fringe, why bother?

I am sunshine averse

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

I decided to write a show about family life and my dads dementia as I enjoy a challenge.

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

I once got soaked by a rain filled awning at the Pleasance and someone at the Guardian wrote about it. So that was embarrassing twice.

Your unsung heroes in the industry at current?

So many legends who should be famous by the time you read this! Glen Wool, Andrew Maxwell, Lou Sanders…

Three shows you must see this Fringe? 

Go see the Zoe’s! Lyon and Coombs-Marr

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

Billy Connolly as he is the inspiration behind 10 minutes of the show.

The reason why one should come and see your show?

It’s narrative comedy at its best.

 The one thing in Edinburgh you must do? 

Go to Glasgow for the day!
