Felicity Ward: Edinburgh Fringe 2018 interview

felicity ward edinburgh fringe

Hello. How are you today?

I’m watching £100,000 Drop with my backdoor open because it’s so hot. I’m in bloody heaven mate.

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

Surprisingly close. I didn’t know what it was about then apart from jokes…I am not much further along.

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

My dear friends Suzi Ruffell and Georgie Donnelly. I think there might be a full rewatch of RuPaul’s Drag Race, from Season 1 through to now. The girls don’t know this yet but I’m sure they’ll be on board. I’m sure we will all be very good at bullshit – lots of “Oh mate, it’s a Tuesday, you know how Tuesday audiences are” and “No one’s selling well today”. Like brutal honesty is for reviews (that I don’t read). Edinburgh is hard enough, so I’ll do everything I can to make it an easier month for those little angels.

Any shows you’re excited about seeing?

I’m pumped about seeing Rose Matafeo and Suzi Ruffell’s show. Oh, and Nish Kumar because he’s doing a work in progress and I want to see him go rogue.

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

Trying to get through one full month up there without wanting to give up comedy. And also possibly get a tattoo. Not the Edinburgh kind. The skin kind.

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

How many Bounty bars I can down in one day.

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

I saw a small rat or a large mouse in my kitchen last night. I’m doing the mature thing and pretending it didn’t happen.
