Please tell us about your brand of comedy- what can audiences expect?

Pippa Evans

Pippa Evans

It's PE branded like Lions eggs but Pippa's eggs. Imagine eggs with my face. That's my brand.

Which comedians have been your biggest influence?

Ruth Bratt and Roy Chubby Brown.

What random things make you laugh in everyday life?

This. And a bus driver's concentration face.

Please tell us about your best and worst moment on stage so far.

Best was probably when I was sat near Brian Conley and worst was probably when I was sat near Nicholas Parsons.

Do you still get nervous when you do a gig?

Yes. Terrified. You know that bit in Jurassic Park in the car. Like that but where the T-rex is an audience baying for my blood.

Why is Edinburgh Fringe Festival such a great platform for comedians?

Cos we can just do what we love for a whole month: drink.

Who are you looking forward to seeing as an audience member?

Is Brian Conley doing a show?

What is your advice to aspiring comedians?

Don't. We are at saturation point. Why not be a plumber or something useful?

What is the oddest heckle you've ever received?

'You're really bad at filling in questionnaires'

What is next for you?

Death. Or a short holiday to Wales.

Pippa Evans' show Same Same But Different will be playing at Bannermans Cowgate from Saturday 6th August till Sunday 28th August, every day at 13:45
