Are you prepared for what this year’s Edinburgh Fringe has in store for you?
I’m never quite prepared for anything. I’m a big, fat, anxious mess but I’ve decided that it means I care. This year, as well as working hard, my plan is to find a Scottish Prince. Scots are really sexy and I’m going to focus on that… And my bucket of dick jokes.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
It is changing every two minutes. My rule at the moment is funny first. But this year, I have had moments in my life that have changed who I am in a good way. I’ve just got back from filming something and it taught me about how important the simple things are in life. Growing up in a very low income household made life feel hard and so I’ve worked hard to get to a place to be comfortable in life but now I’ve started to appreciate all the small things in life. Like where our food comes from, our supplies, the importance of local business! I’ve honestly gone a bit hippy dippy but I think it’s important. I still love dick jokes and men though.
What was the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Being completely honest and not forcing myself to write “an Edinburgh show!
Who would most enjoy your show?
Anyone with a sense of humour and the need to take an hour off the world.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
If there’s something that you wouldn’t think would be to your taste, or it looks ridiculous or the posters bad, or you’ve not seen billboards for it – SEE IT. The show’s not bad, it’s the budget. And some people don’t have it.
What is your favourite thing about Edinburgh as a city?
The scenery. We get so caught up in the shows we forget how much of Edinburgh is beautiful. Take a day off shows and go for a walk
What are your plans for after the festival?
To smile everyday.
