Will Duggan: Edinburgh Fringe 2016 interview

Will Duggan edfringe


The debut hour for a man most well known at the Edinburgh Fringe for dressing in a dog costume in Fosters Award Winning Funz and Gamez. 

Hello. How are you today?

I’m actually really great. I went trampolining this morning, and whilst I wasn’t very good, I did try my best, which is all that anyone can ever ask.


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

Not as much as I’d like, but enough to get away with.

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

Make wild promises that you cannot deliver on. But it’s too late then. You’ve got them.

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 some of my best mates, Kiri Pritchard McLean, James Meehan, Kath Hughes, Michael J Dolan. I will need them for separate things. I will drink with Jim, cry on Kiri, play nerdy board games with Michael and Kath will be the glue that holds us together. I will be unable to help them though, as I’m very busy and important.

Any shows you’re particularly excited about seeing?

James Acaster. Every year.

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

Hanging out with some great people and climbing that volcano drunk again.

Salt and sauce on your chips?

What sauce? Sure why not.

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

I’ve got all my old school books in my house. Not the textbooks, just the exercise books. I’m loath to throw them away as it’s 13 years of hard work and education, but I know I’m never going to look at them again. So if anyone wants them get in touch on Twitter ideally. It’s @willduggan. (Very clever Will. Very, very clever).
