Is this your first time to Edinburgh?

If only! This is my 9th Edinburgh fringe. I first went up in 2006 with a very questionable school play. Then for the three years I was at university, I was in a sketch group, The Leeds Tealights, with various brown-haired, white boys from the South. After university, Jack Barry (one of the Tealights) and I formed sketch duo Twins and wrote four fringe shows together. Last year was my first solo stand-up show; this year will be my second.

Tell us about your show.

My show is called ‘Annie McGrath: Ambivert’. The cast is absolutely sensational- a real pleasure to work with. The show is produced by Plosive Productions, a company set up by the brilliant Ben Williams, former comedy critic at Time Out. Before Edinburgh, I previewed the show in London, Kent, Buxton, Northampton & Bath. I’m sure I’ll do it again in London after the fringe.

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

I saw a preview of David Trent’s show at ARG Fest and it was great. He is a funny man.
