Fin Taylor's Leicester Square Questionnaire
The Times called him a “gutsy, ingenious truth-teller with the jokes to back up the attitude” and we can’t argue. With an extra date added in May, Fin Taylor reveals all about his strangest fan encounter in the Leicester Square Questionnaire!
What’s one word to describe the state of the UK?
Who would you describe as your arch-nemesis?
When was the time you bombed the most onstage?
Early on I did a charity gig for Oxfam in a pub in Exeter. The regulars didn’t know there was a comedy night and threw coins at us until we stopped. The organisers didn’t ask them to stop as they were technically making donations.
What’s been your strangest fan encounter?
A guy came up to me after a show at the Fringe in 2017 and asked me if I’d read “all this stuff” about “The Clintons harvesting organs”. Never meet your fans.
Where’s your favourite place to tour?
Liverpool or Glasgow.
How do you like to relax after a gig?
I go to McDonalds and order a large Big Mac meal with 5 Chicken Selects, a chocolate milkshake and a Crunchie McFlurry. I take my order and go underneath a bridge over the union canal, where I give it to a homeless guy in exchange for a tug.
