Tonight’s the night - it’s our fourth Longitude!
Tuesday 12 June 2012
Longitude is once again upon us and all eyes are firmly fixed on the Century Club as we head to Soho this evening for a little slice of the festival ahead of Latitude.
Tonight our fantastic host and author of hit blog 'How To Write badly Well', Joel Stickley, will lead us through an evening of live performance from cabaret sketch-trio, WitTank, award-winning comedienne and TV regular, Katherine Ryan and just announced Lail Arad, a past Latitude performer and folk-inspired singer-songwriter due to the unfortunate cancellation of Liz Green due to illness.
Remember if you still want to attend all you need to do is rsvp to email@example.com!
We caught up with Katherine Ryan ahead of this evening to talk Tim Minchin, Nicki Minaj and what to expect from her performance at Latitude.
Which latitude are you on right now?
London (53-25) which is also the perfect age gap for dating.
Are you looking forward to performing at Longitude?
You bet your sweet bitch ass I am.
Tell us a bit more about what we can expect from your performance at Latitude?
Expect to feel tingly in and around the nipple area.
Who’s your must-see performance at Latitude this year?
Absolutely Tim Minchin. He's a tidy neighbour, a nice man, and a flipping genius.
Tell us a surprising fact about you
I hate sandwiches.
If any artist could do a guest appearance with you at Latitude who would that be and why?
Nicki Minaj because we are the same.
You have performed at Latitude in the past – what has been your best memory from the festival?
FOOD. And coffee. Coffee is the new booze, trust me. Watching Steve Hughes after about eight cups of coffee was totally unicorns.
It’s our seventh edition of Latitude. Summarise Latitude in seven words
Music. Comedy. Tents. Boots. TeensWithTheirCheeksOut. Burritos. Friendship.
Fill in the gap, “Baa baa Latitude sheep, have you any ______ ?"
'Dicks?' I'm sorry, but I let my mind go blank there was just 'DICKS'.
What’s been your weirdest festival experience?
Bringing my 20-DAY-OLD baby to Latitude in 2009. We lasted two hours.
See you at Longitude!
