Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is not my first rodeo. I’ve been coming up to the Fringe since 2011. I’ve done split shows, package shows, am part of the wonderful Funz and Gamez in which I play a cynical man dressed as a dog, and this is my second solo show. My first one last year was so much fun that I felt honour bound to come again, and blow me down, I only done gone did it.
Tell us about your show.
I wrote this show with a little help from all the things that have happened to me this year. I’m self producing because I always think that if a thing’s worth doing, then it’s worth doing to the point of complete mental exhaustion. I’ve done previews up and down the country to a range of very happy, to very unhappy audiences. Ideally after the Fringe I’ll be too busy being the next Bond to do it anywhere else, however in reality I hope to take it around a few smaller venues across the UK. But we shall see.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Nah, just kidding. There’s so much good stuff, I think people should go and see some of everything. Go and see something you hate. Last year I went to see some ballet, which I was livid about, ended up loving it. Been to three since. Wonderful artistic me. Great comics to go see are Kiri Pritchard McLean, Geins Family Giftshop, Rachel Fairburn, George Rigden, Jordan Brookes, Phil Ellis, Jim Meehan, Fin Taylor. Just so many.
