EDINBURGH 2017: BWW Q&A- Panilla Ice Ice Baby

EDINBURGH 2017: BWW Q&A- Panilla Ice Ice Baby

Tell us a bit about Panilla Ice Ice Baby:
Panilla Ice Ice Baby is an autobiographical journey of what it's like growing up as a foreigner. The show is a mixture of standup and storytelling through the eyes of a Norwegian immigrant. The show explores judgement and our ability to assume things about people that may or may not be true. The show also explores an event in 2011 in Norway, and what it's like having a sister who runs marathons.
As this is your second Fringe show do you think you know what to expect?
Last year I did a character comedy, so this year will be quite different as it is my story. I believe in pacing myself basically. Edinburgh is a long month and so there is no reason to peak too early and be too stressed about anything. I think the more prepared you are the better you can handle the festival, and so I am proud of my show and I´m looking forward to sharing it.
Are you also performing with Notflix?
Why is Edinburgh such a huge draw for performers?
I think it is the most amazing event because people come from everywhere around the world, to see good performance. That means as a performer, even if no one has heard about you, there is a curious audience who want to take a chance on you and want to see a good show. I also love being able to see cabaret, music and comedy that I would not be able to see anywhere else in the world. It is like this giant melting pot of artists all sharing their work, and I can't think of anything better then that.
Are there any other shows you're hoping to catch at the festival?
Yes, so many including stand-ups like Garinne Maguire, Sara Pascoe, Bec Hill, and Sarah Kendall. I also love the clowns Zach and Viggo.
Timings and ticket information for Panilla Ice Ice Baby are available on the edfringe website.
