“It’s absurdist and quick-moving,” says Luke, one half of the acclaimed sketch duo, “and the theme this year appears to be one of falling over.”
“Edinburgh’s very nice,” says Luke. He was back last year doing a solo show, although hasn’t appeared together with Nadia at the Fringe since 2008. “It’s also horribly gruelling; it’s a very long month and I’m planning on not drinking this time.”
Behemoth opened on 3 Aug, has finished its previews and is going well, attracting big audiences. But not all has been plain sailing for the pair in Edinburgh so far.
“I lost my phone,” says Nadia, Luke’s comedy partner in the group. “Then I found my phone.”
“I was freaking out – I had an embarrassing amount of photos of me on there; me in different outfits and stuff.”
“Then I discovered it in one of our costumes,” she says.
“It was hiding in the foreskin of the giant penis.”
The Behemoth plays from 10-29 Aug (not 16) at 16:45 at the Pleasance Courtyard. More information here.
