Hello, I’m Becky, and I’m a 29 year old woman which means I’m passionate about two things: getting every surface of the bathroom wet and blaming my mood and behaviour on the moon. In the past year I filmed a bunch of stuff for Comedy Central, did the Melbourne International Comedy Festival gala, filmed a pilot for the ABC, performed my solo show at the Sydney Opera House as part of the JFL comedy festival as well as some other stuff. I also got banned from Twitter for making a joke about chopping the Prime Minister’s head off, which is ridiculous because honestly, I don’t even have the time! I have a friggin’ show to perform! Anyway, um, support me?!
Please tell me about your show this year and how you have developed your act from previous years.
My show this year feels like it’s going to be my most fun! I’m in a good mood, which is wildly off brand, but I’m excited to debut my new attitude nonetheless. I don’t know if I can disclose how I’ve ‘developed’ my act because I’m scared people will copy me? This industry can be very cut throat and I’m afraid I’m going to have to keep my cards close to my chest.
What do you love about being part of Adelaide Fringe?
Well it’s the first year that I’ve done it so I don’t know yet but I’m obsessed with being included in anything so I’m really enjoying that feeling!
What are you looking forward to about performing as part of Stirling Fringe?
I’ve heard it’s a really fun place to just go buckwild and be really experimental which sounds…scary! I’ll be hiding out in my hotel room watching ‘Peep Show’ in the aircon. Just kidding! I think I’m just excited to be a part of it all and watch a bunch of shows I don’t get to see at other times of the year.
What’s your best memory of Fringe as an audience member or performer?
I don’t have any memories yet, but I do have a memory of getting a fringe after a particularly bad breakup, does that count?
Why should people come to your show this year (what’s the best bit about it?)
People should come to my show because I believe that I can make them laugh. I feel like this is my most introspective and narcissistic show yet, but in a way I feel like it will connect with people. If that makes sense? I dunno! Just come, it will be fun. I’m fun.
Do you have a particular angle that might be interesting?
This is my fringe debut so every audience and every show will be the determining factor in whether I ever return. Can you imagine having that much power? If you don’t laugh I may never come back.
