+3 Interview: Banging Fun Stuff

2016banging_jg

“I love wandering around and taking a punt on something I wouldn’t normally see. That’s the joy of Edinburgh!”

WHO: Amanda Kelleher – Performer, Writer, Producer

WHAT: “The Cutlery Crew wants everyone to have fun, feel uplifted and bang stuff joyfully. But a crime has been committed and all hope rests upon PC Pauline, a worrisome policewoman searching for suspects. Don’t let her gangliness fool you. There is a cunning mind buried deep… deep down inside her, perhaps. She’s a crime solving, spoon playing, twirling, clapping, bending, banging maniac. She was shortlisted for the Policewoman of the Year 1999. She has 55 minutes to put things right. Her fate is in your hands… Free spoon for audience members. Features live music.”

WHERE: Just the Tonic at The Caves (Venue 88)

WHEN: 16:45 (55 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?

No, we came two years ago with a blues comedy. We learnt a lot and went away with the plan to make a show that we could enjoy after doing it over 50 times!

Tell us about your show.

Amanda ran up a welsh mountain and did some training with Phil Burgers (Dr. Brown). She came down a bit different so herself and Josh started working on Banging Fun Stuff. Amanda wrote and produced it and Josh composed all the music. Josh met Amanda 2 years ago.

He might have Stockholm syndrome now as her stupidity starts to makes sense to him. Banging Fun Stuff toured to Barnstaple Fringe where it was reviewed as: “Fringe theatre at its best…original, quirky, bonkers.” It also won the Pick of the Fringe award at Bedford Fringe this year.

What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?

After some time spooning, go see Luke Stephen Commit No Nuisance at Venue 383, a very funny stand up! Also Louise Reay whose new show is awesome at the caves called Que Sera. I also love wandering around and taking a punt on something I wouldn’t normally see. That’s the joy of Edinburgh!
