“I did my first show in 2010 and since then I have performed as a comedian every year.”
WHO: Rik Carranza – Host
WHAT: “Rik Carranza leads two comedians through an epic debate to finally put to rest which is better, Star Trek or Star Wars. They are the biggest sci-fi franchises in history both with their legions of fans. Trek or Wars, Enterprise or Falcon, Phaser or Blaster, Jar Jar or Neelix. Will Star Trek ‘engage’ you or will you find it ‘most illogical’? Will Stars Wars make you ‘let go of your hate’ or will you ‘get a bad feeling about this’? It’s up to you, the audience, to decide. Different guests every day.”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is my 7th year performing at the Edinburgh Fringe though I am from the city originally. My first year I was part of a local theatre company and we brought a self-penned play to the Fringe. A few years later I started performing as a stand up comedian. I did my first show in 2010 and since then I have performed as a comedian every year.
Tell us about your show.
The show is a comedy debate panel show featuring 2 comedians battling it out to decide once and for all, which franchise is better, Star Trek or Star Wars. The show was created and previewed at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe as well as other geek events, including Capital Sci Fi Con in Edinburgh. Once the Fringe is over there are now plans to take the show to other cities and festivals.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
The Dark Room by John Robertson is an amazing interactive show that never fails to entertain. Comedians Against Humanity see’s comedians going to dark places with the help of the audience suggestions and Card against Humanity.
Stack at Bedlam Theatre is a brilliantly immature and fantastically put together one man show. I saw Ria Linas’ Dear Daughter at the Manchester Fringe as a preview and am looking forward to seeing it again. Doug Segal’s I Can Make you Feel Good is a great show. Doug always puts on shows that leave you laughing while you look on in wonder.
