Suzi Ruffell looks at anxiety in this year’s Edinburgh show, from global human rights to her cat’s quality of life.
Hello. How are you today?
Hi! Yeah I am good thanks. Having my first coffee of the day and the sun is shining.
At this stage, how closely does your programme blurb match the content of your show?
It sort of does. It’s still about all the different things I worry about, currently the show is on that list but I am enjoying the writing of it.
Who are you sharing a flat with and how will you help each other survive the month?
I am sharing with absolute dreamboats Felicity Ward and producer Georgie Donnelly, we haven’t stayed together before but I imagine we will watch a lot of Ru Paul’s drag race, make some nice dinners and just generally be legends.
Any shows you’re excited about seeing?
Felicity Ward, Rosie Jones, Heidi Regan, Jake Lambert, Jen Brister, Zoe lyons, the list could go on and on!
Other than the great shows, what else are you looking forward to about your trip to Edinburgh this year?
That pie shop near the Royal Mile. Also I spend my life on the road traveling to gigs, in fact I have just got back from touring Australia as part of the Melbourne Comedy Roadshow, 16 cities over 30 days, so I am pretty excited about staying in one city for a month.
The Fringe’s tagline this year is ‘Into The Unknown’. What do people not know about you?
I like marmalade and marmite on the same piece of toast, don’t @ me.
I’m bored of all the podcasts I currently subscribe to. Can you recommend me a good one please?
Mine! Tom Allen and Suzi Ruffell’s Like Minded Friends. Also I loved Jon Ronson’s Butterfly effect. You are listening to Guilty Feminist right? Right? [I certainly am – Ed]
Here’s a space to write about anything you want. Go for it.
Adult cats don’t meow at each other, they only meow to try and communicate with humans. How mad is that? They are trying to chat to us and people always say cats are rude, maybe we are the rude ones for not meowing back.
