Is this your first time to Bedfringe?
I first performed at Bedfringe in 2019 at their opening night show, sharing the stage with some super cool acts. It must have gone well because when I came back two weeks later with my full show ‘Actual Magic’ I was grateful to find they had moved me into the main performance space because of high ticket demand.
What are the big things you’ve learned since 2019 and have you absorbed any of the lessons yet?
I’ve discovered how much I love writing. Live performance has always been my life, but when everything closed down, I hid behind my laptop and wrote story after story. It kept me going.
Tell us about your show.
I love ghost stories. Old tales of haunted houses with long dead creatures lurking behind the dark. I remember being fifteen and performing a monologue I’d written for drama class about a frightened boy whose parents and doctors didn’t believe in his imaginary friend. As I spoke, I played with a dinner fork, and at the end I put it down, and it moved across the floor. It was just a magic trick, but I’ll never forget the reaction it got. ‘Nightmare Magic’ is the grown-up version. A collection of scary stories brought to life with magic.
What should your audience see at Bedfringe after they’ve seen your show?
Go see Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq, it’s funny as hell and he’s such a nice guy. Patrick Monahan too, great comedian.
