Edinburgh Fringe interview: Vikki Stone

Vikki Stone Edinburgh Festival Fringe Interview

Vikki Stone is rapidly gaining attention as a quirky, funny, talented comedy piano-playing sort.

Her previous Fringe shows have been critically-acclaimed sell-outs, and similar is expected this year.

_ _ _

How are you today?

Defiant.

On a scale of cardboard to Christmas, how excited are you for the Fringe this year?

Coconuts.

What’s your show about (in a maximum of two sentences and without using the following words/terms: unique, defiant, sassy, action-packed, thrill-a-minute, crazy, random, middle-class hip hop)?

It’s 55 minutes of unique, defiant, sassy, action-packed, thrill-a-minute, crazy, random, middle-class hip hop. Oh, shit.

Who should come see it? And who do you want to come see it?

Lenient reviewers and the uncritical masses.

What is the full range of emotions an audience member can expect from your show?

Both.

Is the show easy to adapt for a Radio 4 show in case it wins the Fosters’ Comedy Award?

The other place this show would work is ITV3.

How long did it take to come up with the show’s name? And what did you reject?

A week. Rejects include: unique, defiant, sassy, action-packed, thrill-a-minute, crazy, random and middle-class hip hop.

Do you have a favourite Fringe memory (not necessarily your own or about the Edinburgh in Scotland)?

I had a cracking fringe when I was 10.

What else are you looking forward to in Edinburgh this year? We recommend the Piemaker, The Baked Potato Shop and a pleasant stroll.

The other unique, defiant, sassy, action-packed, thrill-a-minute, crazy, random, middle-class hip hop acts.

Here’s a space to write anything you want about any subject. Go for it:

I once dated a unique pigeon. He was a defiant bastard and left me for a sassy owl. We had an action-packed, thrill-a-minute sex life. It was a crazy time, and very random, but I came out the other end. Middle-class hip hop is my only friend now.
