A quick Q&A with comedian Colin Geddis
Wherever you do your laundry.
Tell us something your mum doesn’t know about you?
I’d love to, but it would be an actual miracle if you could ever keep a secret from a Northern Irish mother, they are inherently nosey.
What would you do if you had the keys to the city for the day?
I could get political with this answer and say that I would sneak in somewhere and change some laws, same sex marriage etc. But in reality, I’d probably just steal a load of trainers and make the most of the free cappuccinos.
Most interesting discovery you’ve made in Belfast?
Discovered a fiver on the ground once, outside Smithfield Market.
Which building would you most like to be locked in overnight?
Probably just any decent bar, with all of my mates. I could say something like The City Hall or The Ulster Museum, but after half an hour in there you want to lie down beside that Egyptian Mummy for a power nap. Or maybe just the Odyssey, as long as I had my rollerblades on.
Anyone. Anyone at all. Even the dudes. Mainly the dudes.
Describe your perfect day in the city?
I’d probably just do all the things I already enjoy all in one day. I’d wake up have a lovely breakfast, go to Maeda Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for some lunch time grappling, go home for a delicious nap, record a podcast then do stand-up at Lavery’s Comedy Club and drink exotic beers deep into the night.
Earliest Belfast memory?
I remember begging my parents to let me get the bus into town on my own then not knowing what bus to get home and having to phone and have someone come pick me up. Acting the big lad.
What movie most closely resembles your life story?
Brokeback Mountain, because I also wear a lot of plaid shirts.
Sum up Belfast in three words?
Shite but good.
