No tricks. No gimmicks. No plan. Just an hour in the company of Jordan Brookes is what you can expect from new show, I’ve Got Nothing. But before they go, they’re making one last attempt to find connection in the here and now, to snuffle out any remaining joy in this rapidly crumbling world, before it’s too late. Jordan spoke with The Fountain about the show and the influences behind.
TF: You are performing at the Edinburgh Fringe this year, how exciting?
Yes very exciting. What we performers do is important, vital work.
TF: I’ve Got Nothing certainly sounds intriguing, what is the premise?
It’s about three buddies who wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
TF: And what drove the project, where did your influences lie?
My influences go as far back Benny Peters from the music hall days, through to future dystopian greats like JINT102.
TF: What are your plans for the Fringe, having been before are there any tips or musts you would offer to first-time performers?
I plan to stay in my room until it’s time to do the show, then go back to bed.
TF: And what are your future plans beyond I’ve Got Nothing?
I’m going to take up running, and keep going until my legs give out.
You can see I’ve Got Nothing at Pleasance Courtyard from 5th – 25th August at 21:30. For tickets, please visit www.edfringe.com
