Juliet Meyers – 10 Edinburgh questions

Thursday, August 09 2012

A 'self-raised' comedian, Juliet Meyers speaks about the difference between her crackers family and the posh one over the road in her show

Juliet Meyers

1. What is your show about?
It’s about what/who motivates you and my love/hate relationship with fridge magnets.

2. Describe it in 3 words.
(These rules are harsher than twitter!) Philosophical, stories, jokes.

3. What is your favourite part of the show?
The "gift" a promoter gave me.

4. Complete this sentence: if you like ... people with unkempt hair/comedy close to breakfast time ... then, hell, you might just like my show.

5. If your show were a dog, what type of dog would it be?
One that is cute but cocks its leg at the wrong time.

6. If you could change one thing about the Fringe, what would it be?
The rain. It shrunk my shoes last year. Edinburgh, I love you, but like dating an alcoholic, you don’t make it easy, dammit.

7. Name 3 other shows you'd recommend seeing.
Liam Mullone: Land Fit For Fuckwits, Matthew Osborn: Shopping Centre and Andrew Maxwell: That’s The Spirit.

8. What would you be doing this summer if you weren't in Edinburgh?
Drinking cocktails in Acapulco in the back of a limo with a swimming pool. Not sure how that works when you go round corners. Or more likely getting a puppy.

9. Which comedians would you like to have had as your mum and dad?
Dad – Stephen Fry cos he’s all clever and arty and posh! Mum – Mrs Barbara Nice, a nice combo of warm and offbeat.

10. 10. Do you think there's such as thing as a "functional" family?
Yes. The family I describe in my show seemed pretty functional or at least high up the scale of "good enough". My show explains the difference between my crackers family and the posh one across road.
