The Herald is taking a look at some of the artists performing at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival - and getting to know the people behind the magic.

Catherine Bohart

What is your favourite synonym for “bum”?

You can’t be funnier than “bum”. If you’d written a less funny word, I’d have chosen “bum”. Oh well. I’m going with “Booty”.

Whose swearing makes you laugh the most?

Elderly women.

Who should come to see your show and why?

Anyone, everyone, I’m not in a position to be picky. Bring your friends, your relatives, your enemies, I just want booties on seats.

Who are you excited about seeing this year?

Sarah Keyworth, Ahir Shah, Helen Bauer, Phil Wang, Liza Treyger, Micheal Odewale and Sophie Duker.

Imagine you come off stage and find a wish come true. Which food/drink/present/person would be waiting for you?

Vegan duck pancakes/ Champagne / A car / Debbie Harry from 1979

Describe your perfect day at the Fringe

Breakfast at the Birchwood, Lunch at Mum’s, Ice-cream at Mary’s Milk Bar, do my show, drink in the Pleasance Dome.

How long does it take to come down after a show and how do you do it?

I don’t think of comedy in the same terms as Class A drugs so I’m usually fine about ten minutes after. All it takes is some praise and a cereal bar.

In the game "Would You Rather?" what's the hardest choice you have had to make?

Would you rather answer a Would You Rather Question or have someone kick you in the shin? Tricky, Tricky.

What’s your favourite Brexit metaphor?

Acaster’s Peppermint Tea on Mock the Week.

Who or what helped you believe you were going to make it in comedy?

I took a BuzzFeed quiz and it said my dream job was a comedian and they are legally binding.

Tell us something your agent doesn’t want us to know.

No, I need her too much and she’s scarier than you are.

Catherine Bohart’s comedy show ‘Punchline’ will be at the Pleasance Square from 1-12, 14-25 August for tickets go to
