Gillian English is a hilarious comedian mostly known for her take on literature and Ancient history. This year she’s doing a memoir piece for FRINGEWORLD 2023. We caught up with her ahead of the show to see what we’re in for!
What is your show about?
This show is about my two weddings (to the same man) and my new baby. The weddings were on the opposite of the planet, and the baby tried to arrive 15 weeks early. Nothing about any of it was straightforward or easy, but at least it was also fully ridiculous.
Favourite part of the show, no spoilers!
My favourite part of the show is a deep dive into bridal shapewear. A living nightmare to achieve that dream bridal aesthetic.
What do you think people will get out of your show?
I think everyone who had a tumultuous start to their married life, or parenthood will be able to walk away from the show saying “Shit, well at least I’m not Gillian English!” It’ll be a great time to commiserate about the ups and downs of growing the whole way up, because you can’t be the baby if you have a baby!
Apart from your show, what other shows would you recommend?
Definitely check out Amy Hetherington’s show “Juggle”. She’s also a new mum, and talking about that work/life balance!
