Maddy Anholt with The Comedy Cast.
We speak about character comedy and why playing characters suits her personality better,
the things you have to do to promote Edinburgh Fringe shows,
And why she established her own production company.
Hello and welcome back to The Comedy Cast; today you’ll be hearing from English comedian/comedy character actor, Maddy Anholt.
We dive straight into Maddy’s type of comedy, character comedy, what she loves about it and, if things go badly, how she can blame the characters if and when things go wrong.
We go back to beginnings then and speak about growing up on Devon before moving to London to pursue a career in acting and comedy.
We speak about her new show which she’ll be performing at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Herselves. A show about the different personalities we use in our daily lives. We talk about the idea behind the show and Maddy admits to liking to play different characters in her daily life with different people as well.
We chat about the lack of comedians who play different characters on stage and how the people who do it find it so liberating to take on a persona and delve into comedy that wouldn’t normally suit their on-stage persona.
Maddy recently set up her own TV production company, MadMaddyTV, so we get taking about the ins and outs of that, how and why she established it, and some of the common pitfalls associated with setting up one. We dig a bit more into this then and talk a bit more about the TV industry and how to get things made and what to avoid doing.
We speak about Maddy studying acting and how it lead her into comedy.
We speak more then about the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the kinds of things she has learned after having four successful solo shows there. And the depth to which one must go to promote shows there.
