Are you prepared for what this year’s Edinburgh Fringe has in store for you?
What do you know that I don’t? I think you can only tell in hindsight, really! I’ve girded my loins in the usual fashion: Berocca and an optimistic gym membership.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
It’s satire for people without a team. I don’t have a team and I don’t think I want one.
What was the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Well, if you don’t have a team and you don’t try to appeal to a particular team, you will be designing a show that deliberately does not please some people, which is hard to parse as an entertainer.
Who would most enjoy your show?
Probably a third-culture kid who has watched too much Netflix.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
Ed Night, Fern Brady, Glenn Moore, Sarah Keyworth, Garrett Millerick,, Catherine Bohart.
What is your favourite thing about Edinburgh as a city?
The architecture for sure – plus how it feels like a big city but retains an intimacy to it as well.
What are your plans for after the festival?
No humour for one month – just living like a robot.
