Edinburgh Fringe 2014 interview: Alistair Green

The blurb promises “rants and moans about everything Alistair thinks is wrong with the world”. We promise a barbed hour of hilarity smothered with pessimism.

Every comic we know says this is the show to watch this year. We’re happy to listen to them.

Hallo Alistair. How are you today?

I’m good thanks

You promise ranting and moaning in your show. What makes petty grievances ripe for comedy?

I don’t know sorry. But I like being referred to as petty.

You’ve previously performed in character at the Fringe. What made you decide to be yourself this year?

I’ve always done stand up shows as well. Im doing both again this year, although the character one is only on from 18-22 at Freestival at 11pm. Its called Alistair Green is Jack Spencer: Sex Addict. Fairly self explanatory.

A lot of acts we’ve spoken to have said to look out for your show. Whose show are you looking forward to seeing?

Off the top of my head Frank Skinner in the diary as well as lots of others. There are loads of good shows this year. There are probably loads of shit ones too though to be fair

What else are you looking forward to in Edinburgh this year?

Going somewhere nice on my day off. I went to North Berwick on my day off last year and ate an ice cream. If you want more anecdotes like that you’ll have to come to my show.

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

If you’re going to buy a griddle pan go for cast iron. Be careful not to wash with detergent though because you won’t develop a nice patina over time that will bring out the flavour more. After you’ve cooked, wait for it to cool then wipe it down with a cloth and run it under the tap if need be.
