Sammy J and Randy: Ricketts Lane

Sammy J and Randy: Ricketts Lane

After making their mark in Edinburgh with Sammy J and The Forest Of Dreams, the comedy pair are back at long last in Ricketts Lane. We caught up with Sammy J (the man) and Randy (the purple puppet) to hear a little bit more 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?

Sammy J: The show is called Ricketts Lane and it’s on in the Cowbarn at 6pm every night.

Randy: Don’t we get a night off?

Sammy J: Yes, but we don’t need to tell them that. In the show, I’m a sh*t-kicking tax lawyer and I have to prosecute Randy, my best friend and housemate, for tax fraud.

Randy: What if the people come on the night we have off?

Sammy J: The show is like a live crime-thriller sitcom, it’s very entertaining.

Randy: This is bullsh*t.

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

Sammy J: The historical charm of the old town..

Randy: The battered Mars Bars.

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

Sammy J: Winning the award in 2009 for comedic duo most likely to be tossed like a caber.

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

Randy: Run a nationwide advertising campaign and cast Russell Brand as Sammy J and Ricky Gervais as Randy.

Who else are you planning or hoping to see?

Sammy J: The Lord.

Randy: Satan, the prince of darkness.

What do you have planned for after the Fringe?

Randy: Your mum.

Sammy J: What does that even mean?

Randy: I don’t know. I’ve heard people saying it and thought I’d give it a shot.

Sammy J: Don’t do it again.

Sum up your show in three words for us:

Sammy J: Three words each?

Randy:No, together.

Sammy J: I think I just f***ed it.

Randy: Yep.

Take a trip down Ricketts Lane at Udderbelly’s Pasture from 3-29 Aug (not 15) at 18:00. More details are on the Fringe website.
