The Delightful Sausage: Edinburgh Fringe 2018 interview

This northern sketch duo are looking for some great potpourri.

Hello. How are you today?

Yeah, we’re alright. Just spent a long night driving through dark country lanes because we were told there was some really great potpourri just going spare. Turned out to be fake news but we managed to turn the trip around by breaking into Flamingo Land on the way home and filling a suitcase full of candy floss.

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

We’re broadly heading in the same direction but anybody showing up for references to blue-top milk or Bigfoot will leave feeling sore and short changed.

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

Luckily we don’t sleep under the same roof during the festival. Chris couldn’t handle the never-ceasing sound of Amy popping her zits. Likewise, Amy isn’t the biggest fan of Chris using up all the hot wifi to livestream himself doing weights.

Any shows you’re excited about seeing?

Oh, we’ll cut our digits off to see anything with Anna Mann. Even though we could just buy a ticket. We’re also pumped to see: Big Bad James Meehan, Ross Brierly, Jack Evans, the new Mister Swallow and so much more. Will be so sad when we inevitably fail to see anything.

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

Chris is leaving his partner to be the sole parent of their two year old. It may sound like it would be tough to leave your child for nearly a full month but Chris loves it. Amy will be happy enough if she’s allowed over the border after the mess she made last year. Nah, she’s a good lad. Give her a break.

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

On 16th December 2015, against the backdrop of a terrifying storm, we made a pact that would forever entwine our story with that of Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise. Also, we’re working on text-based adventure game that helps you lose weight by significantly lowering your IQ.

I’m bored of all the podcasts I currently subscribe to. Can you recommend me a good one please?

We’re listening to Practical Rituals by Herman Wortz. The last episode included a simple step by step guide to conjuring the ghost of a really smelly dog. We’ve had to change the lino.

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