By Theatre Critic Trump.
I recently saw on Twitter an aging Twink/Otter hybrid (aka a Twotter) struggling to sell tickets for his one man show in some place I’ve never heard of called “Edinburgh”, so I decided to do my bi-yearly charitable act and interview him so he could promote his show while still finding ways to make this about myself. Failed, lonely New York actor turned L.A. “comedian” Tim Murray is bringing his one man “comedy” show Wait… Let’s Have Fun! to the “Edinburgh” “Fringe” “Festival” August 19 - 25.
TCT: First off, you’re welcome for doing this.
TM: I know I’ve taken away your precious hours of trying to sell your “book” and tweeting about non-equity productions of Newsies! This article is already reading like that bit*hy NYTimes “review” about King Kong.
TCT: How is “Edinburgh” treating you?
TM: THIS IS MY FAVORITE PLACE IN THE WORLD! It’s theatre camp meets your first week of college meets the first time you go to NYC and see shows. It’s an incredible place filled with artists trying to create independent work! You’re probably familiar with that concept, because you’re often filled with starving artists!
TCT: What would you say the biggest difference between “Edinburgh” Grindr and American Grindr are?
TCT: Allegedly you’re in “Edinburgh” to do a “show”. Why don’t you tell us about that? But be brief.
TM: Oh, I see we’re doing the same “quotations” about each other’s work. Cute. I’m doing two musicals and an hour of stand-up called “Wait… Let’s Have Fun!”. It’s an hour of me talking about how I was cat-fished by someone pretending to be Britney Spears when I was 11 and my current job: teaching acting at a school for child models. It’s on at 9:15 pm at Paradise in the Vault.
TCT: That could have been briefer. Now in my new, best selling book Call Me By Your Stage Name (tens of copies have already sold), I define comedian two ways. In New York, a comedian is someone who tells jokes. In L.A., a comedian is someone with a twitter account who goes to therapy and has tried a juice cleanse once. You’ve lived in both New York and L.A., which definition would you put yourself under? Or now that you’re in “Edinburgh” would you say you’re something all together different?
TM: First of all, that was funny… for someone who has never been on stage (thank God) and tweets jokes from… New Jersey. I don’t identify as a NYC or LA comedian. I’m an international model. Next question!!
TCT: I know that you teach child models “acting”. Hopefully for their sake you are having them do method acting.
TM: I do! I tell them horrible things that have happened in the news recently and watch them cry. It’s beautiful, because they’re really FEELING the trauma and that is acting!
TCT: I read in your press release (rather I had one of my assistants read it to me while I was having vodka inserted into my rectum) that you are “constantly trying to be the cool girl in school.” Tell me, “Tim”, what was the moment that you realized that you will never be that cool girl in that “school”?
TM: When I agreed to do this interview with a Twitter parody account instead of a real publication.
TCT: And finally, for my last question, the rumors on Tik Tok are that you open the show reenacting an iconic Britney Spears moment. What made you want to pay tribute to the greatest vocalist of our time?
TM: She is the way, the truth and the light. And my show is all about having fun and there is NOTHING more fun than early Britney Spears!
TCT: And that’s all the time I have for today. I’m a very busy person and all this porn on twitter isn’t going to watch itself. So, I’ll let you say any last words you want to say and to see yourself out.
TM: COME TO MY SHOW! It’s going to be hilarious and the first night is almost sold out. See you there!
