Meet Natasha Noman – Ed Fringe 2015


I am a 29-year-old half-English, half-Pakistani gay woman who is currently working as journalist at a demanding job on the news desk of in New York, and who is insane enough to write and perform a one-woman show at the same time. 

My show is based on the true-story of a lesbian Tinder date I went on in Karachi while working as a reporter in Pakistan last year. It turned out the date’s father had been recently kidnapped by the Taliban… Which made for light, first-date conversation. 

What is the first thing people notice about you?

I crowdsourced this inquisiton amongst my two best friends in a group chat and the following conversation between both of them ensued. 

Friend #1: “The first thing I noticed about you was that you were a funny looking white person.” (I look mostly brown.) A minute later: “The first thing people notice about you depends on if you want to sleep with them or not.”

Friend #2: “Yes. And if they want to sleep with you. Both decisions/subconscious gameplans being made simultaneously.”

Friend #1: “It’s about as complex as the Iran nuclear deal.”

Who are your Edinburgh Fringe Crushes this year?

I do not have enough information on the other performers to answer this question with the thoroughness it deserves, but I suspect I’ll be getting busy with the breakout star of Noman’s Land. I’m pretty sure she’s into me. 

Your darkest Fringe secret?

I don’t know yet. I’m not in Edinburgh. 

But it will involve a kilt.  

Natasha Noman’s debut comedy show ‘Noman’s Land’ will be at the Gilded Balloon from 5th – 15th August for tickets go to
