Are you prepared for what this year’s Edinburgh Fringe has in store for you?
Short: What does it have in store for us?
Curly: Yeah, its hard to prepare for the unknown. We’ve written a show and we’ll buy some Bercoccas to have every day. That’s as much as we can do.
Short: As long as we’ve got a show that we enjoy performing we’re happy.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
Short: It’s about youth.
Curly: and me turning 40.
Short: Sorry, it’s about Curly NOT having youth. He’s is in full panic mode to get his youth back. I want to teach him to learn to appreciate the present.
What was the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Curly: Well we were going to bring this show to the Fringe last year but Short nearly died and we ended up in hospital diagnosed with ARVC. That was a big obstacle there.
Short: But now I’ve got my own defibrillator fitted in my chest. I’m more robotic than I was last year.
Who would most enjoy your show?
Curly: Our shows have pretty broad appeal really.
Short: Young and old will enjoy. There’s jokes, singing, dancing and stupidity.
Curly: But fans of nostalgia will especially enjoy it.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
Short: Kill The Beast, Susan Harrison, Adam Riches, Jordan Brookes. There so many more I can’t think of.
Curly: Tony Law, always Tony Law.
What is your favourite thing about Edinburgh as a city?
Curly: The way Americans pronounce it.
What are your plans for after the festival?
Short: I’d like to say put our feet up but I’m working on a play to raise awareness for heart conditions called “The Beat Goes On”, so I’ll be busy with that.
Curly: I’ll probably put my feet up.
