Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
Pfft do I look like a rookie to you? There’s nothing this city can throw at me that I haven’t seen a thousand times over *draws on cigarette*. Nah, it’s my fourth time, I love the festival even though I’ve never objectively had a good one, this is going to be different though *throws cigarette on the ground and stamps it out*. I think the things that make a great festival are the bars, the food and the shows *notices there’s still some cigarette left so picks it back up*. I’m really looking forward to it.
What are the big things you’ve learned since 2019 and have you absorbed any of the lessons yet?
Just that none of it matters so enjoy it. I also learnt that YouTube Yoga videos are largely ineffective if you’re also drinking 8 cans of lager a night.
Tell us about your show.
It’s a stand up show, I wrote it, it’s on at Monkey Barrel which I’m really excited about, previews have gone well and I’ll perform it everywhere after, Coventry, America and, if I can pull it off, Bristol!
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Sean McLoughlin is amazing, I also love Lou Conran. Red Richardson is sat next to me right now, so I’ll say him, Good Kids, Celya Ab and Eric Rushton for some midland vibes. My guilty pleasure is university A cappella groups.
