Amee Smith: Edinburgh Fringe 2016 interview

amee smith


Amee Smith is performing a very interesting sounding Fringe show about fulfilling the goals of an ex-partner.

Hello. How are you today?

Hello! I’m very well, thank you for asking. And thank you for reading. You know how to make a girl feel special.

Are you ready for another month of Edinburgh Fringe action?

Yes… No… Maybe. Well yes, I’m going to make it through the month, that’ll be fine. By then end I’ll even be sure that I know what I’m doing. New things are scary!

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

Pretty closely. I’ve worked hard to not wander too far from the origins of the show’s conception. Revenge is a dish best served cold, but it also keeps one focused over lengths of time

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

Bribery. Come see my show and you might get a lollypop.

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

I’m in a flat of all ladies. We will survive the month as strong independent women (which means the bitching sessions to release Fringe frustrations will never be repeated outside of those rooms) Cake, ‘cause that solves everything, and remembering to have fun. And cake.

Any shows you’re particularly excited about seeing?

Heaps! But there are always gems in every section of the brochure that you know nothing about. That’s what makes the Fringe great, you can take a punt at something that catches your eye but know nothing about and find an absolute favourite.

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

Falafel. I answered this questions almost embarrassingly fast.

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

Vegan haggis. With a side of regret at eating it all in one go, those things are the size of my head.

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

Argh, free rein. I don’t know what to write…
Here’s a selfie from one of my cats to distract you…
