Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
No, but it’s the first time since 2019 which feels like a very long time when you’re used to going every single year. It’s also the first time I really wasn’t planning to go… and then changed my mind last minute. So this is a real test, because if it’s a disaster I’ll never do anything impulsive again. That actually seems like kind of a rash decision in itself, so you can see how much I have riding on this month.
What are the big things you’ve learned since 2019 and have you absorbed any of the lessons yet?
I’ve learned that as a person with a moustache, people treat you very differently when wearing a face mask. It feels like I’m cat-fishing the world. I have also learned that it’s actually not that easy to get someone pregnant, meaning I was pulling out unnecessarily for years.
Tell us about your show.
I’m a stand-up comedian so I did everything you’re describing. I also did it without government grants, bursaries or prizes and expect to make money from the show, like a good capitalist. I’ve done the show at Australian festivals in the front half of 2022, and will tour it regionally from September… after that I’ll film it and put it on YouTube and then move on with my life.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
After they’ve seen my show it will be about 8:15pm, so I reckon maybe grab a bite to eat? It’s easy to forget to eat during Fringe and things still close relatively early in Edinburgh. After that I reckon Bobby Mair is a good bet, if you’re willing to consider the next day as ‘after’ then there’s also Red Richardson and Garry Starr is an Australian act who smashed in domestically in 2022.
