We chat to Tatty Macleod about all things Edinburgh Fringe as she prepares to take her show Tatty Macleod: Fugue up North!

Hey Tatty – here’s your chance to give an elevator pitch, can you give us a brief synopsis?

It’s my hot take on the difference between the French and the English as someone who has lived half her life in France and half her life in the UK

What inspired Tatty Macleod: Fugue?

Just noticing the different ways in which my British friends versus my French friends hosted parties!

What is the best and worst parts of performing at the fringe?

This is going to be my 6th year at the fringe but my first hour of stand up. The best part of the fringe is the daily trip to the mac and cheese stand in George Square. The worst part is having to buy a whole new wardrobe due to aforementioned mac and cheese.

What are the main themes within the production, and what can audiences expect?

Tips on how to date a Frenchman (don’t) and where to go in Paris (don’t go)

Finally, with so many shows at the Edinburgh Fringe why should people book a ticket to this one?

Because we will finally get to the bottom of “où est la bibliothèque?”


Tatty Macleod: Fugue is on at Monkey Barrel Comedy from the 2nd – 27th August
