Jason John Whitehead: Letters From Mindy

Award-winning Canadian comic has had a terrible year. He can’t wait to tell us – and you – all about it.

Tell us a little bit about your show – where’s it happening, what’s it about, why should people come to see it?

It’s called Letters From Mindy and it’s got tons of jokes and overall isn’t that nasty to people named Mindy. It’s on at 10:25pm in the Dairy Room which is the new Underbelly venue at Bristo square. It’s funny ha ha.

What are you most looking forward to about coming back to Edinburgh?

I always have a mud wrestling match with the homeless guy who lives in Hunter square. He is currently leading by 4 victories to 3 but I intend to even it up this year.

What’s been your favourite Edinburgh Fringe experience so far?

Naked party at the top of Arthurs Seat. Enough said.

If money was no object, what publicity stunt would you do to promote your show?

I’d hire elephants to walk through the city with banners of my show draped all over them and then I’d sponsor a train running from London to Edinburgh so that everyone can catch the J-train.

Who else are you planning or hoping to see?

I’m gonna check out Tom Green because I’ve never seen him. Other than that there are the usual awesome clowns such as Phil Nichol, Glenn Wool, Matt Kirshen, Tony Law and generally other crazy people.

What do you have planned for after the Fringe?

I’ve been on the road for 6 months so I’m going to have a stay-cation in my own flat; cooking, learning bass guitar and catching up on films, pretty boring really but I’ll need an easy schedule to quicken my recovery from alcohol poisoning

Sum up your show in three words for us

Life affirming funny

You can listen to Jason’s Letters From Mindy at Udderbelly’s Pasture from 3-28 Aug (not 16th) at 22:25. More details are on the Fringe website.
