S01E04 Laura Byrne

In this episode of the Fringe Interests podcast, I spoke to Laura Byrne.

Laura has won a national comedy competition, she is the star of two youtube channels, Facts. and Try, she has a big online following and she had a very successful run at Edinburgh with her debut show, End of Daze.

We talked about the show, the events that inspired it, her experiences flyering and watching shows in Edinburgh in previous years that gave her a base of knowledge when she took her show over, and also how she almost took a show over a year too soon.

S01E03 Richy Sheehy

In todays episode I spoke to Cork's biggest Liverpool fan, Richy Sheehy, about the viral video that made him an internet sensation to 2018. We spoke about the creation of the video, the elements of it that made it so successful, and the weeks and months that followed.

We also discussed how Richy got started in comedy, the Amsterdam comedy scene and Richys experiences at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, particularly his 2016 show "People Are Strange" and his 2017 show "The Adventures of Rich and Morty".
