EDINBURGH 2016: BWW Q&A - Craig Campbell
BWW speaks to comedian Craig Campbell about his 2016 Edinburgh Fringe show Easy Tiger.
What can you tell us about Easy Tiger?It's the greatest thing ever conceived by man for man... Sorry - short bout of pre-Edinburgh megalomania there for a second (or couple months more accurately). It's a highly interactive, playfully and broadly performed stand-up show and the promotional shot sees me sporting a snow-sport tiger-striped onesie, hence the choice of title.
Do you think you know what to expect from the Fringe?
Always! A great month with audiences, most of whom I've met or have seen at other shows before, being generous (by their very presence) far beyond what the restrictions of the dire state of our economy and our collective futures should rightfully allow them to be, so who could complain.
Who would you recommend comes to see Easy Tiger?
Tiger-lovers first and foremost, and any English speakers who enjoy an alternative and funny view of both the world and themselves on that hilarious spinning ball's unfair heels!
What have you been up to since your last appearance at the festival?
Touring my show from last year "Don't Look Down" to uplifting audiences across Britain and selected exotic parts of Earth - Moscow being a wild stop of note.
What's next for you after the Fringe?
Touring to pay for (more) diapers (some for a child now also), as with the help of the universe I'm hoping to look into my first child's beautiful, expensive l'il face in December. Ho-ho-holy f#ck!
