Is this your first time to Edinburgh?

No, it’s my fourth year as a comic. But, I’ve been up before as like a runner/fan.

What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’17?

I 100%-ed Crash Bandicoot 2. I also got a show on Radio 1, but I feel like that’s not as hard to do.

Tell us about your show.

I wrote it (read: am telling my agent I’ve finished writing it) and it’s being produced by the amazing gang at Mick Perrin Worldwide. We met because they took out a “comedian wanted” advert in the church newsletter, and I responded because it’s been my lifelong dream to go to Scotland. Hopefully, the show will be good enough to take somewhere after Edinburgh.

What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?

They should see Catherine Bohart, Sarah Keyworth, Red Richardson, Pierre Novellie, Sid Singh, Chris MacArthur Boyd, and Rosco Mclelland and a million other shows cos you should support live comedy. But especially those ones

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?

This will be my 9th visit to the fringe but my first hour show! I used to do children’s theatre when I was a teenager, please don’t research it, it’s not pretty.

What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’17?

It’s actually been a steady stream of nice things since last Edinburgh. I won a bursary for the new show, I got a resident MC spot in Leicester Sq and a few other things that I can’t actually tell you but I’m very pleased about.

Tell us about your show.

My show is a hour of solo stand up. I wrote it and it is being produced by a fantastic company called Fight In The Dog. I’ve been previewing it all over the UK but in very rough forms and I hope it will go further after the Fringe but it depends on how successful the run is!

What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?

I’m excited to see Sean Mcloughlin, Jordan Brookes, Sindhu Vee, Catherine Bohart, Ed Night, Brennan Reece, Adele Cliff – I could go on and on!
