Pete Johansson – 10 Edinburgh questions
No-nonsense yet laid-back Canadian stand-up Pete Johansson wasn't at the Fringe last year, and this year he's banging on about crack pipes. COINCIDENCE?
1. What is your show about?
Jokes and funny stuff and changing the world.
2. Describe it in 3 words.
Funny. Joke. World.
3. What is your favourite part of the show?
The yet-to-be-written closing bit.
4. Complete this sentence: if you like ... cognitive behavioural therapy ...then, hell, you might just like my show.
5. If your show were a dog, what type of dog would it be? Is there a Rasta dog?
6. If you could change one thing about the Fringe, what would it be? The name. I'd call it Super Lucky Good Time Theatre Casino Land.
7. Name 3 other shows you'd recommend seeing.
Rory Scovel, Return of the LumberJacks, but I highly discourage anyone go see Carl Donnelly's amazing show about gravy. He's had it too good for too long.
8. What would you be doing this summer if you weren't in Edinburgh? Hard time at a county lock up.
9. How have you changed as a stand-up over the past few years?
I've moved away from lots of 'jokes' to more uncomfortable staring.
10. When do you do your best writing?
While I'm watching really strong comic writers perform.
And here's Pete at the Comedy Store ...
