Are you prepared for what this year’s Edinburgh Fringe has in store for you?
I guess it depends what this year’s Edinburgh has in store for me. I’m always prepared for things to be good. Will it be good?
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
I’m doing a double act with a robot. That’s the punchline. The premise is Aristotelian rhetoric. Edgy stuff.
What was the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Making a robot.
Who would most enjoy your show?
I mean, if it goes well, usually me. I enjoy it a lot if everyone else is enjoying it. If they don’t enjoy it, I spiral into despair until I get a good night’s sleep and a cup of tea into me.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
Laura Davis’ Ghost Machine, James Nokise in Talk A Big Game, Catherine Bohart, Larry Dean. Also, just go see something you’ve never heard of. There are no bad choices. Even bad shows are a wonderful thing to witness.
What is your favourite thing about Edinburgh as a city?
The Escher-like intricacy of the stairs.
What are your plans for after the festival?
I’m going to walk in the highlands with my dad. Like a proper walk, where you need to bring a compass and hunt down your own wild scones and jam.
