What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’16?
A friend of mine 3D printed me a full sized replica of the helmet of the Armored Bat Suit from Superman vs Batman. I mean did get to perform Star Trek vs Star Wars the live comedy debate show, on at 13:10, Heroes @ Monkey Barrel, 3rd-27th Aug (not 16th), to over 200 people at the Bluedot Festival, took the show to London, Derby Comedy Festival and to a few of comic cons, and I’ve performed stand up at some fantastic venues around the country, but yeah, the replica helmet is probably the best thing to have happened.
Tell us about your show.
I’m a Fan is all about choosing between being a fan of something that you enjoy or shunning it in order to fit in with those around you. It’s about a lot of things but fundamentally it’s a story about love, life, death and Star Trek. It was written by myself with help from Delphine Manley, Jackie Thornton and Rohan Acharya. The 2017 Edinburgh Fringe will it’s be premier in a cosy 35 seater room in the Counting House. After Edinburgh I’ll be taking the show around the UK but would also love to add in Australia and maybe as far as the final frontier?
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Well, I heard Rik Carranza presents: Star Trek vs Star Wars is a good show to see after Rik Carranza: I’m a Fan but you’d have to find out for yourself.
Otherwise, Rob Kemps, Elvis Dead. It’s the Evil Dead 2 set to Elvis songs. It needed to be done.
