Hyprov sees improv legends Mike McShane and Colin Mochrie join forces with hypnotist Asad Mecci for a show that combines the two mediums in what I assume will be incredibly entertaining. Asad answers our Qs.
Hello. How are you today?
I can’t sleep right now, but I’m being very productive!
At this stage, how closely does your programme blurb match the content of your show?
The blurb is spot on!
Have the momentous events of 2016 affected your act in any way?
Yes, the election of that twit Donald Trump makes me what to write in more politically minded humour.
Who are you sharing a flat with this festival and how will you help each other survive the month?
I’m flying solo this year. Last year I had a full house. It reminded me of my uni days
Any shows you’re particularly excited about seeing?
The Whose Line show is back. Can’t wait to catch that show. I’m their biggest fan!
What celebrity death hit you the hardest in 2016 (mine was Wogan)?
Call me a nerd, but I miss Morley Safer. I watched 60 minutes religiously with my family growing up and am still a faithful follower today.
