Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is probably my tenth show at the fringe. I first performed in 2005 as part of a sketch group, I have performed almost every year since then, in a sketch group or as a solo performer. I haven’t been up for 5 years though.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’18?
I was in a show called ‘Ultimate Bucket List’ for BuzzFeed, where I got to do a lot of things that were on my Bucket List, it really pushed me out of my comfort zone. I spend most of the show being scared. But looking back, it was pretty amazing.
Tell us about your show.
I have been working on the show for a few years, writing and performing it around the country, testing the material. It’s based on an unpublished autobiography that my grandad wrote. So I suppose he wrote some of it. It’s also based on interviews with family members. So I’d like to turn it into a documentary or a film of some sort and maybe tour the show as well.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
I would recommend Luke McQueen and Nick Helm if they want to see something a bit different. Ian Smith always makes me laugh too.
