Sarah Callaghan: Edinburgh Fringe 2015 interview

sarah callaghan edinburgh fringe

Hello Sarah, How are you today?

I’ve got a bad throat. Tuesday, the day before the fringe started, I classed as my ‘day off’ so I got pissed. What a sausage.

Are you ready for another month of Fringe action?

Not right now, I can’t speak. But the first show went great so game face, no one will know about the throat unless they read this.

At this stage how closely does the programme blurb match the content of your show?

It’s exactly the same, my show only contains 40 words. And yeah, it’s about me being trapped and trying to break free.

What are your tips for getting people to see your show?

Make sure every show is banging, and employ a very expensive flyering team financed by your mum having to sell her house.

Is there anyone in particular you’d like to see in your audience?

Can’t wait for my mum to see it, so she can see that move to her cardboard box under the bridge has been worth it.

Who are you sharing a flat with and how will you help each other survive the month?

I’m with non-festival people, which is the way I like it, less bubbling resentment!! One geezer is a personal trainer so I”m hoping I can get some freebies out of him and he makes me ITV2 ready!

What else apart from shows are you looking forward to about Edinburgh.

It’s all about the zoo for me this year. Love zoos and never been to Edinburgh zoo. Have they still got pandas there? Love those black and white cuddly little bastards.

What’s your topping at the Baked Potato shop.

I’m very bland when it comes to food. So probably mashed potato.

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

The day before the Fringe starts is not your ‘day off’. Are you dumb?!
