What are your feelings as you enter into this year’s Edinburgh Fringe season?
Fright. Uncertainty. Looming bankruptcy.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
I once wrote a film review about a Bollywood movie titled Disco Dancer, that almost had me arrested and only when I could prove I was a Disco Dancer, was I freed. Which is also I suppose a study of The Indian democracy. So the show has Democracy and Disco Dancing.
What is the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Almost having to go to jail to get a good story.
Has your attitude towards the Fringe changed at all in recent years?
Yes. I think of it now more as writing a play. With me acting in the play.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
Yes. Loyiso Gola, Nish Kumar, David O Doherty, others.
Where would you like to be in a year’s time?
Back at Edinburgh, complaining.
