Are you prepared for what this year’s Edinburgh Fringe has in store for you?
I should be, as the festival happens every year, but even so, you never quite are, because each Fringe is different and you never know what is going to happen.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
After an eventful year, I’ve found myself trying to figure out my place in this brave new world. I attempt to explore my own agency, the third-culture-kid-experience, weight loss and what it means to be a woman of colour.pl
What was the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Finding all the jokes and having a good balance between any type of discussion.
Who would most enjoy your show?
I think the people who would relate most are younger women who are going through similar experiences, but hopefully everyone who comes to see it can enjoy it.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
There are so many great people debuting this year, I’m really looking forward to seeing Sindhu Vee, Sarah Keysworth, Catherine Bohart, Heidi Regan, Micky Overman, Sophie Duker and Nigel Ng, as well as my favourite staples Sean McLoughlin, Pierre Novellie, Jamali Maddix and the Americans Myq Kaplan, Kate Berlant and Janine Garofalo.
What is your favourite thing about Edinburgh as a city?
Edinburgh has some great places to eat and coffee places and everything is walkable, so you indulge and then walk it all off.
What are your plans for after the festival?
I’ll be heading to the US for a few weeks for a much-needed holiday!
