Who? Adele Cliff
Where? Just the Tonic at The Caves (venue 88)
Are you prepared for what this year’s Edinburgh Fringe has in store for you?
I think I am. I’ve visited the Fringe a lot of times doing compilation shows and seeing loads of comedy. I’m pleased that I no longer get lost between venues and I’ve figured out the correct combination of shoes to pack for most conditions, but I’ve thought I was prepared every time I’ve been up, and something has always surprised me.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
My show is about whether or not I am a sheep and about individuality, searching for friends, following and fitting in.
What was the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
I’ve previewed my show all over the UK, including Glasgow, Brighton, Plymouth, Leicester, Birmingham, York, Norfolk and Merthyr Tydfil so the biggest obstacle has been working out how to get everywhere.
Who would most enjoy your show?
Nerds. Nerds are my favourite.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
My very funny friends Catherine Bohart (Immaculate) and Sarah Keyworth (Dark Horse) will be great, and anyone who likes a load of great jokes jam packed together should see The One Liner Show. I also highly recommend going to see a random play by an unknown company because it mixes up your day a bit, like a pallet cleanser!
What is your favourite thing about Edinburgh as a city?
I absolutely love the view from Arthur’s Seat (and the view of the potatoes at The Baked Potato Shop on Cockburn Street).
What are your plans for after the festival?
I’m going to make myself a nest from abandoned flyers, PVA glue and emergency rain ponchos, have a really lovely weekend of sleeping curled up in it and then I’ll catch up with all of the friends who believe I’ve vanished for the last few months.
