Are you prepared for what this year’s Edinburgh Fringe has in store for you?
Well this is my 11th year doing the festival so I have some experience of the sort of things Edinburgh can throw at you, but who knows what tomorrow brings.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
My Edinburgh show is called “Prophet” and has some funny comedy routines and approximately 4 comedy songs in. It’s called, “Prophet” because I’ve always know that is what I’m going to call it. I’m hoping the show will be really funny and that people will enjoy it. This is my eighth Edinburgh show and according to the first website I looked at when I googled, “significance of the number 8”, 8 is the number of resurrection and regeneration, which considering my previous experiences at the Edinburgh Festival is just as well. I guess one theme of the show is that I’ve had some therapy this year to try deal with my negative thought patterns, which I imagine will show themselves throughout the rest of this Q&A.
What was the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Who would most enjoy your show?
People who find everything I say and do hilarious. I don’t care why, but previous reasons for this have been drunkenness, mistakenness, and being a toddler.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
Nah mate. There’s not really anything much else on.
What is your favourite thing about Edinburgh as a city?
It’s cold, stony, indifference.
What are your plans for after the festival?
