Creator and star of Comedy Central’s Drag His Ass, and co-host of the podcast Obsessed, alongside Benito Skinner. ‘A rare comic…deeply intelligent and honest’ (Vulture.com).”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
Yes! This is my very first time at the Edinburgh Fringe. I’ve been warned it’s a completely insane experience so naturally I am very excited. I’ve done some comedy festivals but those were all like 3-5 days long. This time, I’ll be doing 26 performances of my hour. I would say preparation makes a great festival, plus lots of sleep and under eye masks.
What are the big things you’ve learned since 2019 and have you absorbed any of the lessons yet?
I’ve learned so much since 2019! For one, I think we should abolish the police. That had never really crossed my mind before. I guess also, I learned that you can try to plan your life but plans really aren’t shit when a global pandemic could start at any time.
Tell us about your show.
I wrote my show and I’m producing, with my best friend Jake Morris directing. I’ve been touring it all over the US this year and afterwards? Well you’ll just have to wait and see!
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Go and see Leo Reich, Fern Brady, Ania Maglianio, Patti Harrison, Sikisa, and Catherine Cohen. See all of these people immediately!
