What are your feelings as you enter into this year’s Edinburgh Fringe season?
The usual mix of self-belief, self-denial, fear and excitement.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
To make people laugh as much as possible. I’m going to do it through the medium of music videos, a loop pedal and some completely daft one-liners. I’ll be taking a look at the pop music formula and using it myself of course. Top 40 here we come!
What is the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Technology. I hate it, I’m a pensioner at heart. I’m showing three music videos within my hour and I’ve bought a projector and a fold up screen. I can’t work it and I am yet to switch it on. I’m scared of it. Yesterday the venue informed me they can’t facilitate a projector and I’m now on the hunt for a massive TV on wheels probably like the ones they used to wheel out on Friday afternoons at high school in the 90’s. If you’re on the hunt for a projector then hit me up.
Has your attitude towards the Fringe changed at all in recent years?
I can’t remember what my attitude was before but I’m not sure it has. I’m still full of hope for the future. I’ve heard Edinburgh Festival can dispose of hope so we’ll see. It’s the biggest arts festival in the world so let’s go!
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
No, just mine – Kerr in the Community, 5:45-6:45 Bristo Square.
Where would you like to be in a year’s time?
Metaphorically – successful (and rich).
Geographically – Italy (best food).
