What are your feelings as you enter into this year’s Edinburgh Fringe season?
Paralysed with shakes but also aching to just get up there and start.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
It’s set in a focus group where I play the facilitators and the participants. There are too many wigs to be honest. It’s too much. It’s very wig reliant.
What is the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
My own chaotic brain just wanting to put everything I’ve ever thought about into one hour. And also time, because I started quite late.
Has your attitude towards the Fringe changed at all in recent years?
I’ve never been this scared of it before now. But it’s important not to take it too seriously.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
My improv friends Flora Anderson, Theo McCabe, Nick Everritt and really looking forward to Johnny White Really-Really and Lola & Jo’s shows too.
Where would you like to be in a year’s time?
Wherever, I’m chill.
