Jo Marsh talks about her new show, JoJo Bellini's Kitchen Cabaret.

1 Tell us about your fringe show

Well... My show is a delightful hour of food fun and the songs of Tom Jones. The audience are fed a delicious leek and broccoli soup and Welsh cakes for dessert. All by a saucy hostess with the mostess…

2 Best thing about the Fringe?

Oh wow! Now there is a question! I think the best thing for me is the hidden gems of the fringe. Those acts that are utterly amazing but without representation. Also Prosecco bars.

3 Worse thing about Fringe?

Oh now that is a loaded question! I think it would have to be the fact I don't get to see as many shows as I would like. So many shows, so little time, so many glasses of Prosecco!

4 How many years have you been coming to the Fringe?

Well as a punter six years. As an artist this is my first full run at the Fringe. 

5 Favourite Fringe venue?

Ooo lala. Now you are really putting me on the the spot. I must say I love The Stand. Their programming is second to none! 

6 Best Fringe memory?

Prosecco! After that it is all a bit of a blur.

7 Best heckle?

Where's the buns??? I cook soup during my show you see.. My answer was "I've got your buns right here baby!" Whilst motioning to my delightful buttocks. 

8 Craziest on stage experience?

Now, now. A lady never tells.

9 What’s on your rider?


10 How do you wind down after a show?

Prosecco... But of course!

11 What do you love about Scotland?

Oh my goodness... Where to start? The people, the hills, the green, green grass. Just everything. 

12 What do you like about Edinburgh?

The majesty of the whole town is just fabulous!!! 

13 What’s the most Scottish thing you’ve done? 

Eaten a deep fried pizza. You were expecting mars bar... But no. Pizza. In Glasgow!!!

14 What kind of jokes do a Scottish crowd seem to respond to?

Well for me it's the naughty ones. I love that they enjoy a cheeky joke. 
15 Favourite joke?

Of mine? Or of another's? Wow hard question that's like saying which brand of Prosecco is my favourite. (The answer is all of them) 

16 Favourite Scottish food/drink? 

Haggis. So delicious! Great with a full breakfast and a glass of Prosecco in the morning.
