Giants talk about their new Fringe show.

1 Tell us about your Fringe show

Ours is a show about friendship, growing up and how much you actually know the people around you. Also a pretending to be sick on things and balancing cups on our heads.

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

Pretty intimidating, but so far it’s been a real treat.

3 Live act most looking forward to seeing at Fringe?

The Fawlty Towers Dining Experience. Genuinely.

4 If you were not a performer/comedian what would you be doing?

Dropping plates of food on paying customers. Essentially, what we spend the other 11 months of the year doing.

5 How do you combat pre-gig nerves?

Will vomits backstage and I avoiding vomiting at the sight of his vomit. Normally, keeps us distracted till curtains up.

6 Worst on stage experience?

Barney’s trousers once fell down at a gig in Brighton. Very difficult to regain the trust of an audience after something like that.

7 How do you recover from a hefty heckle? Do you have a set of stock replies?

We normally grunt something incomprehensible and hope the audience allows us to proceed.

8 What do you love about Scotland?

That it voted Remain. And the people. And the hills. It has some great hills.

9 What do you like about Edinburgh?

That shop that sells tat and always plays classic pop songs done on the bagpipes.

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

Anytime we do something that can be described as “rueful”. That always feels fairly Scottish.

11 Who’s your favourite Scottish comedian?

Kevin Bridges.

12 Favourite joke?

In the interests of plugging the show, we’ll give you one of ours: “I’ve written a stoner comedy about two post-impressionist painters. It’s called, “Dude, Where Did Vincent’s Van Gogh?”.

13 Favourite Scottish food/drink?

Scotmid own brand sandwiches. Fortifying and disgusting.

Giants will perform at Pleasance Courtyard until August 28.
