Are you prepared for what this year’s Edinburgh Fringe has in store for you?
Depends what it has in store, I am prepared to do my show everyday for a month, but if for some reason, Kim Jong Un decides to nuke Edinburgh then I am not really prepared for that.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
It’s about being called Red, growing up in a drug fuelled hippie town and nearly being cast as Harry Potter aged 10.
What was the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Watching stupid and totally unrelated videos on YouTube for hours on end and wasting a lot of time doing so.
Who would most enjoy your show?
Supermodels and very rich people who own TV companies and have jacuzzis and spare pairs of swim shorts at their house.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
Eshaan Akbars ‘Prophet Like It’s Hot’, Ed Night’s ‘An Aesthitic’, Garrett Milleriks ’Sunflower’ and Kate Lucas ‘Tetchy’.
What is your favourite thing about Edinburgh as a city?
I like the architecture, which is why its so important Kim Jong Un doesn’t nuke us.
What are your plans for after the festival?
Move to America, get cast in a huge sitcom, get really rich, then get hooked on crack and have a very public meltdown, then become President… failing all that I will just stay in England and sign on.
