WHO: Matt Duwell, Performer/ writer/ producer
WHAT: “Matt Duwell is a snowflake, and he is owning that label (despite thinking labels are pejorative). A show for anyone who has ever been called a snowflake, a libtard or a remoaner. Expect jokes about lighthearted subjects such as the polarisation of political discourse and the rise of nationalism as well as more serious subjects like Netflix and Angel Delight. ‘Razor sharp ability… the boy’s got talent’ **** (MumbleComedy.net).”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
No this will be my fourth fringe show and my second solo show, after last year’s ‘A Pessimist’s Guide to Being Happy’. More importantly, Edinburgh is my home. I came here for the culture, the people, the views and, yes, the relatively reasonable house prices.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’17?
I adopted a crippled cat. Watching a cat drag itself up a flight of stairs like a mountaineer whose had too much Buckfast is both the most heartbreaking and heartwarming thing you could possibly see, as well as being a stark reminder that even a cat who has had a stroke is working harder on self-improvement than me.
Tell us about your show.
This show has been written by me and foisted upon the people of Hastings, Brighton and London who seem to be at ease with their status as testing ground for Edinburgh shows. It describes how offended I get with being called easy to take offence. Basically, they are correct for all the wrong reasons.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Go see Christopher MacArthur-Boyd. Great guy and the best thing I’ve seen in Scotland comedy wise this year. NB: I haven’t seen a lot. I’ve been watching a crippled cat scale a flight of stairs. I’ve been very busy.
