Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This will be my seventh year doing the Edinburgh Fringe. The show is called ‘Guest Bed’ and it is the follow up to my debut solo show ‘Melt’ which I performed at last years festival. Prior to that I did a lot of split bill shows and appeared on some showcases like ‘AAA’ and ‘The Lunchtime Special’.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’18?
The biggest thing to happen to me since last years Fringe is that I have quit my day job and become a full time comedian. Partly because I am totally smashing the comedy circuit and partly because of some life events which have left me temporarily unable to work. I won’t give too much away here because this is kind of the subject of the show.
Tell us about your show.
My show this year is a bit of a departure from my usual stuff as it will be a personal storytelling type show. Previously my style of comedy has been somewhat on the surreal side and I didn’t really talk about stuff from my actual life so this year is a little different in that respect. It’s still going to be a bit bizarre and otherworldly but it will touch upon some fairly dark real-life events.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
After they’ve seen my show they are going to need to go home and take a long nap. When they’ve awoken from their slumber they should go and watch ‘Nick Elleray: Big Nick Energy’ at The Counting House. I did a preview with him the other day and his show is just so tightly written and full of great bits. Not a word wasted. I would also recommend anything at ‘The Heroes’ venues. They tend to programme stuff that is a bit more off beat and always seem to have a great selection of shows.
