Ruby Thomas: Edinburgh Fringe 2016 interview

Ruby_thomas Edinburgh_


Ruby Thomas promises a show with filthy aristocrat, a gynaecologist, a vlogger and a dominatrix. No limescale though sadly.

Hello. How are you today?

Very well, thank you.

Are you ready for another month of Edinburgh Fringe action?

Administratively no, but emotionally yes.

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

There’s nothing about limescale in my show but other than that the blurb is apt.

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

I imagine a unique poster / flyer image is useful, and being kind and enthusiastic towards everyone you meet.

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

I will be part of an eight person maelstrom made up of: Rory O’Keefe, Loren O’Brien, Richard Gadd and the sketch group Laughing Stock. I like being stroked a lot so hopefully one of them is up for that. My comedy partner Chris Adlington also makes me feel very calm so I might ring him (he’s living somewhere else).

Any shows you’re particularly excited about seeing?

Rory O’Keefe’s Monoglot, Laughing Stock, Richard Gadd’s Monkey See Monkey Do and Loren O’Brien’s Who? I also think Epic Love and Pop Songs and Torch, both by Phoebe Eclair Powell, will also be really good.

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

Probably talking to people.

Salt and sauce on your chips?

Yes please so much ketchup.

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