What are your feelings as you enter into this year’s Edinburgh Fringe season?
Constipated… The usual.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
Me getting serious, because comedy is innit, so you know, I’m wanging on about marriage, American society, Dysfunctional families and 90’s pop sensation Shakespears Sister, (yeah it all links chill your beans)… P.S who have just reformed and still look peng!
What is the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
It was putting the show together… have you ever tried to write stand up? It’s a bloody nightmare. Also I was writing about some serious stuff in the show which makes me arsehole tighten… not helping with the constipation… I promise to stop talking about poo.
Has your attitude towards the Fringe changed at all in recent years?
It definitely gets easier the more you do it, every year I enjoy it a little more and drink a little less… maybe there’s a correlation there.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
I mean, there are so many wonderful shows to see, Can’t wait to see Lou sanders, Fern Brady, Jessica Fostekew, Jayde Adams, Tony Law, Luke McQueen, Jen Brister, Alfie Brown, Alison Thea Skot… Just so many brilliant acts.
Where would you like to be in a year’s time?
Still working in comedy, getting more writing gigs and some telly would be ace!… oh and world domination… if possible.
