What are your feelings as you enter into this year’s Edinburgh Fringe season?
Sexual frustration. Only kidding – I am weirdly optimistic and looking forward to it! For real.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
The premise is certainly not what I thought it was when I wrote the blurb for the brochure. Turns out it’s about relationships and me analysing whether I am efffd in the head.
What is the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Structure. I hate structure. It takes me ages. And if I will be judged on my searing honesty. Am I being too revealing y’know? But I think it’s important to not just reflect a sanitised, nicer version of yourself. I wanna see the more challenging/challenged side of people too.
Has your attitude towards the Fringe changed at all in recent years?
Yes, I like it more! I see more stuff and I stress less.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
Luke McQueen, Annie McGrath, Ray Badran, Gaby Best, John Kearns, Adam Hess, Kate Berlant.
Where would you like to be in a year’s time?
Hawaii. Just for a bit.
