Are you prepared for what this year’s Edinburgh Fringe has in store for you?
I think I am. But then I thought I was the first month I did a compilation show up here and ended up sobbing watching a circus show on my own, so who knows.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
It’s about the first time I fell in love when I was at school. I decided the way to win her heart was to stop acting like a boy and start acting like a man, specifically Liam Gallagher.
What was the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
My first kid was born very recently. The most wonderful obstacle in the world.
Who would most enjoy your show?
In the hope that they might read this and come along, I’d have to say the Gallagher brothers, Steve Coogan, Chris Morris, Armando Iannucci, Kathy Burke, Eric Cantona, Mel Sykes and my mate’s mum, Mrs Mertz.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
Matt Ewins & Sarah Kendall’s shows are two of my favourites every year. But the line up at the Pleasance Attic (where I’m on) looks brilliant. If you do come and see me (PLEASE DO) then you should spend the day seeing the acts before and after, they are all belting.
What is your favourite thing about Edinburgh as a city?
The local people are really friendly, but also really intimidating. It feels like they would do anything to help you out, but cross them and you will get a headbutt. I also like Arthur’s Seat.
What are your plans for after the festival?
Take the show on tour. If they don’t come to Edinburgh to see me, I’ll go to Barton-Upon-Humber to see them.
