Frankie’s Fringe Focus: Hatty Ashdown

This week’s episode of Frankie’s Fringe Focus is with the marvellous comic, actor, presenter and writer Hatty Ashdown.

Not only is Hatty (a proper Kent girl like myself) a ‘quadruple threat’, she’s also thoroughly good company and has a unique personal style to be envied. Happily, she brought along a spare one of her signature headscarfs to help me get the ‘Hatty look’!

Unfortunately I had to cut down the interview as Touchcast only lets me upload up to five minutes of footage so I had to lose a fair bit – including the titbit that Hatty’s attitude towards her audience is to try and ‘feel like a friend’, a bit like her aunties who she grew up with and were ‘the life and soul of parties’. Her first full-hour Edinburgh show, titled Hurry Up Hatty (after the Sham 65 song Hurry Up Harry), will showcase some of her strongest material and promises some ‘showbizzy bits’ along with observations about her ‘lazy family’. After Edinburgh she’ll be ‘putting it to bed’ so she can start performing ‘new stuff’.

You can catch Hatty performing throughout the Fringe at the Wee Pub at 15:45 – and it’s free! Watch the video here.
