#EdFringe17 Comedy Q&A: Andy Field

The Andy Field Experience is the number one experience for people looking to experience Andy Field. Why should people want to experience Andy Field? We asked Andy Field.

I was about to sneeze once so I turned to face the back of the stage but then I sneezed so hard I farted right in the faces of a couple in the front row.

Hi Andy, tell me about your show

The Andy Field Experience is the number one experience for people looking to experience Andy Field - who is a stand up comedian that does lots of fun things.

What does Edinburgh mean to you?

It's a city in Scotland and it's great.

Who inspires you and why?

Dogs whose back legs don't work. They just don't seem bothered by it, what beautiful troopers.

Describe your best or worst experiences on stage.

I was about to sneeze once so I turned to face the back of the stage but then I sneezed so hard I farted right in the faces of a couple in the front row.

Describe your best or worst review.

I sold a board game to a guy on eBay but when he got it he said there was a piece missing, I apologised and suggested he just use a coin or something and he called me a 'horrible cunt' which seemed a bit much.

If you weren’t a performer, what would you be?

Probably just deeply unfulfilled and hard to be around. So not that different.

What was the last book you read?

I don't know how to read.

Can you think of a good question to ask yourself?

No, not really

Imagine that the BBC have asked you to produce a primetime show. What would it be and who else would be involved?

It would be an extreme close up of my face for 60 minutes, no talking, no moving, just strong eye contact and a look in my eye that dares you to not at least respect how bold a move this is.

The Andy Field Experience

It's a hard task to sum up quite what The Andy Field Experience is about without using the words surreal and odd. Hilarious is another apt phrase that could be used. What the show is? It's a hilarious romp through the life of a comedian who is clearly going places... 

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this article has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
