Ed Night is back in Edinburgh this August with his show, An Aesthetic, at the Pleasance Courtyard. Following on from his performance last year we can expect more of the same it seems.

Ed spoke with The Fountain about his desire for a GameCube, who he is personally keen to see at the Fringe this year and what inspired him to write this show.

TF: You are performing at the Edinburgh Fringe this year, what is the premise?

It’s a stand up show about me, about the world and about the future.

TF: What drove the project, what inspired you?

I didn’t feel like I was able to say everything I wanted to in last year’s show, so I’ve written some more. But it was mainly inspired by industry pressure to “keep the ball in the air”.

TF: And what do you personally want to see at the Fringe this year?

Catherine Bohart, Sarah Keyworth, Sid Singh, Red Richardson, Pierre Novellie, Chris MacArthur Boyd and Rosco Mclelland.

TF: What are your plans for the Fringe, have you been before?

I have been before, so my plan is to stay in and do as little as possible.

TF: And what do you have lined up in store after the Fringe?

I’m going to buy a GameCube.
