Interview with Harriet Braine

CB: How long have you been writing and performing comedy? HB: Not very long. Actually I started writing a while ago, I wrote the first what-would-be Art History Song (of which I now have 23 which I can pick and choose from) in 2013 after seeing Adam Kay in Edinburgh. It was for an art…

Interview with Adam Weinrib

CB: How long have you been writing and performing comedy? AW: Since middle school, actually! I started out in an improv troupe in my tiny hometown in suburban New York in 7th grade, and I never looked back. Truly, it’s what I’ve always wanted to do. I got a serious education in all aspects at college, and I’ve…

The Show Time Series with Peter White

CB: What is your show about? PW: My show is about race, gender and sexuality, specifically with how it relates to myself as a straight white male. But not in like a men’s rights way or anything. This isn’t me whining about how hard men have it or anything. It all stems from an abusive relationship I…

The Show Time Series with Phil Nichol

CB: What is your show about? PN: 20 is a celebration of my 20 years of solo hour comedy shows on the fringe. I will be putting together a fast paced, silly and rip-snortling funny hour of my favourite bits from all those shows. And that’s a lot of funny! There will be stand-up, sick…

The Show Time Series with Masud Milas

CB: What is your show about? MM: This year’s show is about growing up in different parts of the world and how much my parents affected who I became. I lived in Hong Kong until I was 14, with a (very) British father and a (very) Kenyan mother. So I never really felt I was…

The Show Time Series with Adam Hess

CB: What is your show about? AH: It’s about stuff that has happened to me over the last 6 months and whether or not I think my Catholic upbringing has affected the way I’ve dealt with it. I weave observational stuff in with anecdotal stuff and try to make it as dense as possible and…

The Show Time Series with Beasts

CB: What is your show about? Beasts: It’s called Mr Edinburgh 2016, and it’s essentially a contest between the three of us to decide who is the best man in Edinburgh/Scotland/the world. It’s a sketch show masquerading as a game show, where the winner not only gets the the coveted title of being Mr Edinburgh,…
