Paul Williams: Edinburgh Fringe 2018 interview


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

I intentionally kept my blurb extremely vague to allow myself limitless possibilities.

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

Rose Matafeo, Alice Snedden, Emma Sidi and Emma Sidi’s boyfriend who I don’t know. I have a real crush on Emma Sidi so honestly I think there could be a lot of tension.

Any shows you’re excited about seeing?

Rose Matafeo, Alice Snedden, Emma Sidi, not Emma Sidi’s boyfriend’s show, Nish Kumar and Sam Campbell.

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

The chicken kebab from Kebab Mahal and the extremely hard race car simulator at the museum.

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

No one knows anything about me. Even back home in New Zealand. I pride myself on being extremely mysterious.

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

I do two podcasts. One is a NBA basketball podcast with my brother called ‘Advanced Analytics’ and the other is a cool Dungeons & Dragons podcast called ‘Waterdeep Mountain High’. I wouldn’t recommend either of them.

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

If you’re naming a pub you can either go with lots of the same thing (The 6 Crowns) or with two different things (The Horse and Crown) but you can never go with lots of different things (The Horse, Pig, Whistle, Duck and Frog wearing a Crown).
