Incoming: Fran Moulds is in a hurry or something
Andrew Mickel19 July 2012
The latest in our new act interviews is in no mood to mess about...
Character comedy is HOT HOTTY HOT HOT right now, and the latest to climb on the character gravy train (it's driven by Lynda Bellingham, 'FYI') is Fran Moulds.
She's bringing six characters including a horndog theologian, a celeb correspondent for a broadsheet (excellent idea) and Sarah, a teenager from Bolton who's just converted to Islam, to Edinburgh next month.
She answered a few questions we sent over to her, which you can clearly see she answered of her own free will.
What brought you into comedy?
Going to theatre school and being obsessed with ‘clowning’.
Describe your act in five words.
Original character comedy with heart.
What's been the best reaction you've had to your comedy?
Someone crying and thanking me.
Who's your biggest fan?
What's the toughest lesson you've learnt in comedy?
To not be effected by other people’s opinion.
What's the best advice you've ever been given?
Judge people by what they do, not what they say.
Show us something fascinating on the internet about you. (That isn't your website/Twitter/'similar'.)
There is nothing about me on the internet of any interest.
What is your guilty comedy pleasure?
Which other acts have you seen while gigging you recommend?
Robin and Partridge.
What's the day job?
Running drama workshops for children and selling organic vegetables.
Fran is at the Underbelly Bristo Square from 1-26 August at 14:50. Tickets are over here...
