Sally-Anne Hayward

Sally-Anne Hayward is a regular on the comedy circuit and has appeared on radio and TV, including an acting appearance in Absolutely Fabulous. In August, she brings her one-woman show to Edinburgh – we caught up with her to find out more.

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 a show called ‘Don’t Judge Me.’ It’s a one woman stand up show and it is funny. It is about me, my life, my thoughts and how I am looking forward to getting old. It’s at the Stand 4 at 12.05pm. People should come and see it because it will be a funny, slightly rude start to the day.

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

The £3 curry at that outdoor place on Nicholson Streen (yum). The Edinburgh audiences are always full of life and want to have a good time. And I love the city.

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

One year, I performed my show to only 2 people (a couple). They wanted me to go ahead with the show when my producer asked if they would rather have a refund. I announced myself on from backstage by saying “Lady and Gentleman…” I then walked on, separated them as they had sat together and told them that there was a lot of pressure on them as audience members. At one point I asked them about their relationship (this was part of the show) but realised and told them that it was now turning into ‘Relate’. It turned out to be a really fun show.

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

Move the entire festival to Bristol so I could stay at home.

Who else are you planning or hoping to see?

Juliet Meyers, Sarah Millican, Steve Day, Susan Murray, Stewart Lee and many many others. I plan to see loads and loads.

What do you have planned for after the Fringe?

Christmas shopping

Sum up your show in three words for us:

Lovely and funny

Sally-Anne Hayward: Don’t Judge Me is at The Stand from 3-28 Aug at 12:45. More details are on the Fringe website.
