What are your feelings as you enter into this year’s Edinburgh Fringe season?
A little nervy but pumped as hell. All the preparation is making me look forward to just getting there and it happening.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
The tagline is: I was a married, 21-year-old monogamous Evangelical, then I became the opposite. It’s a true solo comedy show about faith, non-monogamy and KFC.
What is the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Translating the experience I went through into a show that’s well-paced, honest and funny. I didn’t realize when I started how much that was going to involve me working through more of my feelings and ideas to better understand how I feel about it and figure out what’s worth including in the show.
Has your attitude towards the Fringe changed at all in recent years?
This is my debut, so there’s still a lot of attitude to change – but having attended last year’s I’m still in awe of the size and extent of it.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
Jamie Loftus, Molly Brenner and Mike Lemme; Sean Patton is also crazy good.
Where would you like to be in a year’s time?
I’ll have JUST finished filming Poly-Theist the feature film in time to head to Fringe for a three-show double-act run with Phil Nichol.
