+3 Interview: Luca Cupani: God Digger

“It’s about my exciting life as a practising Catholic and an observant hypochondriac.”

WHO: Luca Cupani, Performer

WHAT: “Luca’s hypochondria and survival instincts have helped him live a fairly safe and sin-free life so far, but his imaginary diseases and unfulfilled dreams of being the poster child for over-the-counter painkillers have lead Luca to further question his Catholicism for life’s answers. This So You Think You’re Funny winner, Italian comedian and all round lovely guy is here to entice the masses with his endearing and brutally honest storytelling. ‘Funny and fresh and so, so moreish’ **** (Scotsman). ‘Lines that will make you laugh for the rest of the day’ **** (Scotsman).”

WHERE: Underbelly, George Square – The Wee Coo (Venue 139) 

WHEN: 17:20 (60 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?

It is my fifth time at the Fringe. My first experience was in 2014, I loved the atmosphere and I spend every August in Edinburgh since then. What I like the most is the chance to meet loads of talented artists and to perform every day in front of people from all over the world!

What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’17?

I managed to write another show for this Fringe 2018!

Tell us about your show.

My show is called ‘God Digger’ and I wrote it: it’s about my exciting life as a practising Catholic and an observant hypochondriac. The show is promoted by my agent Mick Perrin Worldwide Ltd. Edinburgh will be the world premiere and after the festival I’d love to bring the show everywhere!

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

There is a long list of shows that I hope to see, here is just some of them (in alphabetical order):
Anuvab Pal: Empire
Austentatious
Ed Night: An Aesthetic
Romina Puma It’s all my mother fault
Tim Renkow Tries to punch down
