Giddy is summer. Giddy is cool. Giddy is like falling down the stairs, but sexy. Giddy is embodied, existential, excruciating sketch comedy that asks: is this it? Am I garbage? Is it too late to become a better person?
Ahead of his two night return season, Leon Wadham talks Giddy with our blogger Jonty:
WHAT CAN THE AUDIENCE EXPECT FROM GIDDY?
Motormouthed fretting, nagging heartbreak and a very sexy duck. It's fast and funny and physical and delirious. It's like riding a rollercoaster, or falling down the stairs.
HOW MUCH REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE IS CAPTURED IN THE SHOW?
It's a fact/fiction sandwich. People have told me the show is like being inside my brain, but I don't think I'm that bad. I've never been to prison, if that's what you're asking.
ANY FAVOURITE OR UNEXPECTED MOMENTS OR REACTIONS FROM PERFORMING THE SHOW DURING THE COMEDY FESTIVAL?
I picked a costume that turned out to be entirely comprised of non-breathable fabrics, meaning I went out opening night and was sweating profusely mere minutes into a relatively full-on physical show. I'm now attached to the outfit, so have decided that my looking deranged is just part of the experience.
Giddy is on at Basement Theatre from 8 - 09 Jun. Book tickets or find out more here.
