American teacher Orlando Baxter’s debut Fringe hour is about his chaotic experiences teaching in American classrooms.
Are you ready for another month of Edinburgh Fringe action?
Yes, this will be my 1st full month so I’m pretty excited
At this stage, how closely does your programme blurb match the content of your show?
I may have exaggerated a bit on my coolness but aside from that it’s a pretty good match
What are your tips for getting people to see your show?
Create an amazing show and hope that people love it enough that they want to share it all over social media.
Who are you sharing a flat with this festival and how will you help each other survive the month?
I’m sharing a flat with Loyiso Gola and we will probably help each other survive by listening to music, talking, and maybe cuddling.
Any shows you’re particularly excited about seeing?
Loyiso Gola: Dude where’s my Lion; Liz Miele: Mind Over Melee; Maureen Langan: Daughter of a Garbage Man
Other than the great shows, what else are you looking forward to about your trip to Edinburgh this year?
Exploring the city and buying a kilt
What’s your topping at The Baked Potato Shop on Cockburn Street?
I haven’t been yet but I’m pretty sure it’s going to be bacon [Orlando will be heartbroken by the shop’s vegetarian menu – Ed].
Here’s a space to write about anything you want. Go for it.
Don’t forget to come check out my show: Suspensions, Detentions, and Summer Vacations. It’s funny, it’s honest, it’s better than a cheeseburger with haggis.
