What are your feelings as you enter into this year’s Edinburgh Fringe season?
Excitement. I think that is the number 1 feeling. Bringing my 3rd solo show to world’s biggest arts festival and performing it for 26 nights to paying punters is an absolute privilege, I think remembering that will help me to enjoy it more.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
Not much of a premise. I’m just going to tell some funny stories of what’s going on in my life recently. In the last year I have turned 30, got engaged, booked a wedding, been to Australia, made my TV debut and subsequently had my first twitter troll.
What is the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
People telling me I need a premise.
Has your attitude towards the Fringe changed at all in recent years?
No, not in the slightest? Should it have? I didn’t even know what the Edinburgh Fringe was until 2012. My attitude is always just go up and try to make people laugh.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
Josh Pugh, Mike Newall, Rosie Jones and The Delightful Sausage. Bit of something for everyone there. All very different, all very funny!
Where would you like to be in a year’s time?
I think I’d like to move in to a 3 bed semi-detached with a driveway and possibly 2 ovens (obviously in Wigan).
