Annie McGrath is performing a new show at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe with her twin, Jack Barry.
“It is called Twins and it is a low energy sketch comedy show which we are accused of underselling. We are told it has ‘offbeat charm’. I am in it and so is Jack Barry.”
Why did you choose to perform as part of Laughing Horse?
“Like all up-and-coming, hotly tipped, almost successful comedians, we don’t have enough money to perform in a paid venue.”
Why did you get into performing comedy and how did you get started?
“I started performing comedy at Leeds in the University’s sketch comedy group, the Leeds Tealights. I don’t know why I do it. We do it cos we love it…(?)”
Tell us your best and worst experiences as a comedian.
“Best experiences: People laughing.
“Worst experiences: Having to carry a suitcase of props to work with me.”
If you were curating a stand up show for television, who would be your guests?
“Some of my funniest pals: Mae Martin, Lou Sanders, Ellie White, Lolly Adefope, Natasia Demetriou.
