Lucy Pearman: Edinburgh Fringe 2018 interview

After a nomination for Best Newcomer last year, surreal character act Lucy Pearman is back with another hour of mad delights. This time about a worm who thinks it’s a caterpillar.

Hello. How are you today?

I’m alright thank you. Someone gave me a chocolate eclair and I thought, ‘I’ll have half” but as you can imagine that turned into eating the whole thing.

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

Its absolutely still about a worm

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

I am going to be living with Lauren Pattison and all of her friends. It may just be a rumour but I have heard she likes gin so I’ll initiate a gin and tonic in a can in the kitchen one day, at least once I think

Any shows you’re excited about seeing?

I’m excited to see ‘Denim’, they are a girl band made up of 5 drag queens. Its the closest I’ll get to the Spice Girls.

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

Obviously I’m going to say “Soweto choir”. I go every year and its something I look forward to.

I’ll probably cycle to the beach one day, maybe climb up “Arthurs Seat” and regret it half way.

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

I am extremely good at parking. Especially reverse parking. I don’t know why because in real life I can barely walk in a straight line

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

“Why is your Bottom so Dirty?” by Luke McQueen and Lou Sanders. I went on and pretended to be a dog. I took a real dog with me for the sound effects but he stayed quite quiet so it was alot of effort for nothing. I also had to carry him up loads of stairs because he had had an operation on his leg and he’s really heavy, maybe as heavy as a teenager.

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

I think I’m going to do a vintage slash second hand stall in Edinburgh for charity so can I promote that? [Yes – Ed]

There’s definitely some pink cowboy boots, warm cardies, some bags and a lot of dresses so come to that and treat yourself?

Also please come to my show about a worm who thinks she’s a caterpillar.
