2 How does it feel to be playing the Fringe for the first time?

Genuinely amazing / terrifying / amazing again. We’ve been going for several years and, since doing the show, people have told us ‘You need to take this to The Fringe’. So it feels great to finally get to do that.

3 Best live act you’ve seen at a Fringe?

Ross: Tony Law at The Stand a few years ago was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen in my life. Trygve Wakenshaw was also weird and wonderful.

Josh: John Kearns Best Newcomer show was an eye opener. Tim Key’s show Single White Slut was probably the best.

4 Best thing about the Fringe?

The opportunity to come up with an idea, create it and perfect it, night after night, in front of a potentially big audience of new people.

5 Worst thing about the Fringe?

How bloody expensive it is.

6 If you were not a performer what would you be doing?

Ross: Betting on horse racing.

Josh: Watching videos of Gennaro Contaldo on Youtube.

7 How do you combat pre-gig nerves?

By furiously solving all the tech problems we seem to have, so it distracts us from the fact that we’re about to do a show. That and by treating ourselves to one, solitary beer.

8 Worst on stage experience?

Josh: A gig called Comedy Gladiators at The Cross Keys in Bristol where I lost my mind and ended up smearing mustard all over myself and shouting ‘Are you not entertained?’ at the audience.

Ross: A gig in my first ever band at The Packhorse in Leeds. We decided to play some new songs we’d written that day. I think it’s safe to say none of us could remember them. Put it this way, I was the most musically reliable in the band, and I only knew a handful of power chords.

9 What do you love about Scotland?

The beautiful landscapes, whisky and Limmy.

10 What do you like about Edinburgh?

The Fringe, obviously. The incredible combination of old and new. Musselburgh racecourse.

11 What’s the most Scottish thing you’ve ever done?

Threatened to leave England but not followed through with it.

12 Favourite Scottish food/drink?

Ross: Tunnocks Caramel Wafers and Innis & Gunn Toasted Oak IPA

Josh: Crumpets and Laphroaig

13 Sum up your show in three words
