Dominic Frisby: Edinburgh Fringe 2018 interview

Financial expert and comedian Dominic Frisby is host and quizmaster in a game show full of fascinating financial facts.

Hello. How are you today?

A little jumpy.

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

Very closely.

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

In the first half of the month I’m living in Financial Times and Moneyweek writer, Merry Somerset Webb’s basement. In the second half I’m with Andy Zaltzman. Like my show, this represents a healthy balance between finance and comedy.

To survive the month Andy and I will be giving each other the 5 star reviews we both deserve.

Any shows you’re excited about seeing?

None really, especially not Andy’s.

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

Walking, fresh air and local courtesy.

The Fringe’s tagline this year is ‘Into The Unknown’. What do people not know about you?

In 1991 I was British Open Martial Arts Champion.
