Hi guys. Tell me about your 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show Now Shame.
Now: Shame is a double act sketch show about two medieval actors making their way to the fête in Eskdaleside cum-Ugglebarnby. Their journey takes them through a series of fast-paced sketches featuring a wide range of amusing characters.
Our aim with the sketches is to present classic longer-form set pieces interspersed with recognizable and surreal everyday situations. As a troupe, we have always enjoyed both wordplay and physical humour and this is reflected in the content of our show.
What is the attraction of performing at the Edinburgh Fringe? What do you think of Edinburgh?
We all have had wonderful experiences at the Fringe, having lived in the city for a number of years. Both as performers and audience members we have always valued its size and variety.
The Fringe lauds itself as an accessible and welcoming environment for up-and-coming artists to showcase their work and we hope it continues to promote independent talent as much as it does corporations.
Having met in the city, we all agree that Edinburgh holds a special place in our hearts and coming back for the month is a return home in many respects. Alongside all of its obvious attractions, it is its people, atmosphere, and spirit which have defined some of the most important stages of our lives (and this show).
Who inspires you?
Max: Gregg Wallace. And that guy from the spacerocket.
Fergus: Tim Peake?
Are there other shows you want to check out during the Fringe? What are they?
We’re all very excited to see Tim Key. Oh, and Jayde Adams, she’s always great. Other than that, we tend to see where the Fringe takes us, it’s all about those hidden gems.
Finally, ask and answer a question of your own.
Will Degenerate Perturbation theory be in your show, I hear you cry?
Yes, absolutely it will.
