What are your feelings as you enter into this year’s Edinburgh Fringe season?
I’m very much looking forward to doing the Fringe in 2019. I’ve really enjoyed working on my show and it’s going to be something pretty different from what I’ve done before.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
My show this year is called Guest Bed and is a personal storytelling show about my journey to becoming a celebrity lookalike and the resulting chance encounter that forces me to confront my past.
What is the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
This is my first show where I’ve really spoken about true life personal events so that has been quite a change of gear for me.
Has your attitude towards the Fringe changed at all in recent years?
Every year I come to the Fringe I get a little bit better at dealing with the stresses involved in putting on a show. I try and take time out to do things that have nothing to do with the festival. Last year I was staying next to a swimming pool and I learnt how to swim.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
Nick Dixon, Saskia Preston, Lucy Hopkins
Where would you like to be in a year’s time?
I’d just like to be working on another show that I’m as excited about as this one.
