Glasgow International Comedy Festival Q&A: Lubna Kerr

Glasgow International Comedy Festival Q&A: Lubna Kerr

Tell us a bit about your show.

It's about identity and understanding what that means.

Born in Pakistan, grew up in Glasgow, married a man from Lanarkshire, two Welsh children and one Scottish child and now live in Edinburgh.

Where am I really from? How do people see me?

Do you have any top tips for anything else visitors should do while in Glasgow?

Yes shop shop shop. Visit Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow Cathedral and got to Britannia Panoptican where Stan Laurel once performed.

If you want diversity shopping go to the South side and find Ethnic clothes and jewellery, not to mention the best Asian food in Scotland.

Who would you recommend comes to see you at the festival?

Anyone with a sense of humour! People who are curious about hearing a Scottish Pakistani female talk about her confusion in finding her identity. People with entrenched views but open to persuasion.

Anyone who considers themselves to be of immigrant decent!

And who would you suggest maybe doesn't?

People who think only single caucasian young men are funny.

What sets your show apart from others in the programme?

I think the title is great, it's something that everyone will have been asked at some point regardless of their background. The photo is great too, it's by Robert Pereira-hind. The topic is poignant at this time of Brexit.

What's next for you after the Glasgow International Comedy Festival?

I am doing the Brighton Fringe at the end of May/ June.

Then doing previews for the Edinburgh fringe including going to Crieff.

Will do the full run this year at Edinburgh and waiting to hear back from venues.
