Marny Godden: Edinburgh Fringe 2016 interview

marny godden

Marny Godden first came to our attention with a great turn as the love interest in Weirdos’ pantomime The Colonel.

Since then we’ve got to know our solo work, which mixes beautifully insane characters with a real gift for clowning. There won’t be another show like this at the Edinburgh Fringe this year.


Hello. How are you today?

Brilliant thank you!

Are you ready for another month of Edinburgh Fringe action?

Not yet, no…

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

Haha! pretty much there.

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

Try to be yourself, charming and honest. Smile and tell them you’re very excited about your show this year. If you come and watch it I promise I can make you smile and maybe even laugh till you feel sick!

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

Really pleased to be sharing with a wonderful improv group called Maydays

Any shows you’re particularly excited about seeing?

Yes! All my friends shows. Here’s some – Joz Noris, Hello/Goodbye, Lucy Pearman, Crack in progress, Adam Larter, Return on investment and everyone at Heroes of the fringe!

Other than the great shows, what else are you looking forward to about your trip to Edinburgh this year?

Making people laugh. Learning more about what I do and doing it and watching others do it. Getting to hang out with some very funny and talented souls.

What’s your topping at The Baked Potato Shop on Cockburn Street?

My favorite topping is avocado, spinach salad mm

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

Mushroom paste and legnog please with some clog dollop on the side. Thank you!
