Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
I’ve visited the festival in the past, but this is my first time as a performer. I am really excited to be a part of it debuting my show, rather than watching from the outside like times I’ve visited previously.
What are the big things you’ve learned since 2019 and have you absorbed any of the lessons yet?
That I can survive more than a few nights without getting on stage, a situation that was somewhat forced on me considering the events that followed 2019.
Tell us about your show.
The show itself is written, directed, and performed by myself, and produced by Country Mile Productions. We connected after they saw me perform live at a competition. I hope to tour the show after the fringe but we’ll see.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
They should try and see anything theatre or music. I would highly recommend Britney or Shelf over at the Pleasance. They’re both amazing sketch/musical duos. As someone that’s around stand-up most of the time it is wonderful seeing other forms comedy can take while I’m up here.
