Kiri Pritchard-McLean talks about her new show, Hysterical Woman.

1 Tell us about your Fringe show

It's my first ever hour and I thought I would try and cure racism and sexism, because I'm an over ambitious idiot.

2 Best thing about the Fringe?

Being surrounded by great comedians and getting to watch great shows everyday.

3 Worst thing about the Fringe?

Not knowing what weather to dress for in the morning.

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

I've being coming as a punter since 2010 and as an act since 2013.

5 Favourite Fringe venue?

I have a soft spot for the Attic, it's where my sketch group did their first hour and we have great memories of that room.

6 Best Fringe memory?

Probably meeting my comedy heroes, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith in 2014. They came to the Gein's show and chatted to us afterwards. I thought the excitement would give me a nosebleed but I played it cool*.

*by play it cool I mean I didn't bleed at them

7 Best heckle?

Generally heckles are awful but I once talking about never getting sexist heckles on stage. I must have made it sound like a complaint because a chap helpfully shouted "show us your t*ts?", like it was a question. He must of taken it that I was after a weird whip round for objectification!

8 Craziest on stage experience?

I once got to perform in the West End dressed as The Boy with Tape on his Face with about 40 other people dressed the same, whilst dancing to the song "Thunderstruck".

9 What’s on your rider?

In a practical sense a separate room for the audience to sit. Not because I'm too good to mix with the proles or anything. It's so if I have a bad gig I don't have to watch people file past me shaking their heads/feeling sorry for me/ mouthing "you've ruined Karen's birthday".

In a dream world it would be full of my best friends and puppies. Also water, I never drink enough of the stuff. In bottles though! I realised that sounded like a room full of it and I don't want to get a load of puppies and my best mates in a room just to drown them.

10 How do you wind down after a show?

If there's a drive back I will whack on the musical Hamilton and pretend I'm cool enough to be in it by singing along really loudly. If I'm on a train I'll do the same but inside my head.

11 What do you love about Scotland?

The scenery. My fella and I always go on little breaks up there and it is just such a beautiful country. It's nearly as good as Wales...

12 What do you like about Edinburgh?

Big fan of the fact you guys just bricked up your plagued town and built over it. The most elaborate sweeping dust under the rug I've seen. The falafel is good too.

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

My Mother's side of the family is Scottish, hence the Mclean, so recently I went to the Isle of Mull and visited the Mclean Castle. I felt pretty bloody Scottish then!

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

Funny ones. The Fringe audiences are great because they're comedy literate so you can push them a bit further.

15 Favourite joke?

Not my joke but a big fan of :

Where do cows go on holiday?

Moo York.

16 Favourite Scottish food/drink?

 Irn Bru, of course. I found it makes an interesting mixer for gin and there's been no stopping me since.

Kiri Pritchard-McLean: Hysterical Woman is on at the Pleasance Courtyard until August 29.
