Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee for Best Newcomer and winner of the Herald Angel Award, Sarah Keyworth returns with a brand-new hour of comedy about the little things, the smallest details, the fixed and distinct aspects that make up what we definitively are, how we expressly think and who we unambiguously love. She spoke with The Fountain about Pacific and her plans for the month.
TF: You are performing at the Edinburgh Fringe this year, how excited are you?
I’m very excited! I love the Edinburgh Fringe, it’s such a wonderful celebration of the arts.
TF: Your show certainly sounds intriguing, what is the premise?
The show is about strength and masculinity and about how I like to think that I’m a big strong boy despite being quite a small woman.
TF: And what drove the project, where do your influences lie?
I write a lot about gender, I didn’t even mean to do it this time. I just happened.
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 am going to eat well, sleep and try and have fun. My advice to newbies is to take care of your health. God that’s boring.
TF: And what are your future plans, beyond the Fringe?
There is life beyond the Fringe?
See Sarah Keyworth: Pacific at the Pleasance throughout Edinburgh Festival Fringe from 31st July to 25th August 2019. For tickets visit www.edfringe.com
