Dominc Frisby's Financial Game Show ia on at the Gilded Balloon Teviot - Billiard Room, during August. 

  • What is your Fringe show about?

It’s a cross between a quiz and a game show – for example, The Chase and The Price Is Right – themed around money and finance. There are big prizes.

  • How many times/many years have you appeared at the Fringe?

I first came doing 20 minutes sets in 1999. After 2003 I didn’t come back for 12 years (bringing up kids). This will be my fifth full length show.

  • What’s your most memorable moment from the Fringe?

I remember watching some pretty epic deaths at Late n’ Live, but I have also seen some amazing gigs. I’ve always had a soft spot for variety acts, particularly ones who use sound in interesting ways. There was an Australian circus act, I don’t remember his name, and he came on stage looking like the most boring insurance clerk you’ve ever seen in your life and all he did was unpack his briefcase, which had staplers, bits of paper and all the things you might have in a briefcase. He never spoke. Just unpacked his case, but in doing so created the most fantastic rhythms. It was like drumming with stationary, basically. Brilliant. Heck knows what happened to him. He’s probably gone back to insurance.

  • What’s the worst thing about the Fringe?

Other people’s PR

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

Writing travel adventures.

  • How do you prepare for a performance?

Pace up and down.

Getting off the beaten track stumbling across some brilliant left-field act.

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

Going to see Hibs v Hearts.

  • Favourite Scottish food/drink?


  • Sum up your show in three words

Interesting, exciting, amusing.
