Are you prepared for what this year’s Edinburgh Fringe has in store for you?
Presumably, as much as anyone can know the future? I’ve done this show over 200 times, including in the jungle in Kuala Lumpur, so I’m ready for hot stuffy venues.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
It’s a one hour existential crisis. Performed by a ghost. The ghost is just me under a sheet. Not a rattly chain one.
What was the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Lighting, costuming and rigging up all of the electrics that light up the ghost whilst making it completely cordless. Also the microphoning, as being inside a duvet cover poses technical issues.
Who would most enjoy your show?
Anyone who has an open mind, and enjoys very good comedy.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
Alice Fraser and Neal Portenza.
What is your favourite thing about Edinburgh as a city?
I really like all the cakes.
What are your plans for after the festival?
I have just moved to the UK so I would like to go exploring and maybe see some of the other countries that used to be very far away from me in Australia like Iceland and Belarus.
