Tony Law: Edinburgh Fringe 2017 interview

An Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee who takes on the role of maverick truth slinger of ridiculousness for the people.


Hello. How are you today?

I’m good Jack. Raring to go. Miss my family mind you.

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

First year ever. But it dovetails nicely I was told.

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

Not all. I was taking a big old swim in lake me that year and I forgot a towel. I saw them morons coming. Ain’t no other way to put in neither.

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

Wolfy. He takes me up to the hills every day. Cliffs etc. That makes it alll smoooth baby. Then my family comes and it’ll be really fun hard work but joyful too.

Any shows you’re particularly excited about seeing?

Not yet. I don’t get excited about shows that aren’t mine. I’m a wanker. But I’ll be delightfully surprised as usual.

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

I like the weather. It grounds you. Reminds you life isn’t always sunny. Thankfully. That’s why we need comedy. Hoooiray

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

Oh easy. David Bowie. Mind you that’s me grieving for a part of myself. Saying goodbye to our child selves. Younger selves. It’s a death. It’s why we like nostalgia. Looking back. It roots us in something concrete. The past is fixed. The way you like it. Come see my show I touch on that. In a ROUND about way.

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

I did that on the last one. Thanks for this opportunity. Kisses. Tony Law
