041. Red Redmond

In this episode, I’m talking to Manchester based comedian and drag queen Red Redmond, who also runs the Dead Cat chain of comedy clubs across several cities in England. Red tells me about his burgeoning career in drag and his admiration for LGBT culture. He also talks about his experiences at the Edinburgh Fringe – which he’s been visiting since 2009 – his plans for the festival this year, and his disappointment at the commercialisation of the experience in recent years. Finally, he discusses his best ever gig, and then recounts his worst gigs – all of which involved him being physically attacked! You can find out more about Red Redmond by following him on Twitter. You can also follow his alter ego Scarlet SoHandsome on Twitter as well.
