The Dark Room for Kids: Edinburgh Fringe 2017 interview

The Dark Room

John Robertson returns with his interactive video game show, but this time it’s for the whole family.


Hello. How are you today?

THE DARK ROOM IS FINE, THANK YOU, DARREN. ALSO, YOUR NAME IS “DARREN” NOW.

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

THANK YOU FOR ASKING, DARREN. THE ROOM IS DARK AND THERE ARE CHILDREN IN IT. GREAT SUCCESS.

Have the momentous events of 2016 affected your act in any way?

THE MOMENTOUS EVENTS OF 1816 HAVEN’T AFFECTED MY ACT.

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

THE DARK ROOM IS NOT PART OF A FLAT. IT IS, FOR INSTANCE, CHEAPER TO GET INTO THE DARK ROOM.

Any shows you’re particularly excited about seeing?

HOW WILL I SEE ANYTHING? I’M IN A DARK ROOM!

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

YOU SEEM TO HAVE IGNORED MY PREVIOUS ANSWER. THIS IS RUDE, DARREN. YOU WILL BE PUNISHED!

What celebrity death hit you the hardest in 2016 (mine was Wogan)?

I KNOW YOUR IMPENDING DEMISE IS GOING TO UPSET AT LEAST ONE PERSON IN 2017!

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

I DON’T SEE ANY MONEY ON THE TABLE. YOU GET NOTHING, SIR!
