Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
I’ve been coming to the fringe since I started doing stand-up in 2004. I just love the festival. It’s the best arts festival in the world. But I don’t need to tell you that. Actually the very first time I came to Edinburgh was way back in the nineties for some day-job related thing. It was winter and I am soft, and from London. It was cold btw. Really cold. I’m talking C.O.L.D. But I don’t need to tell you that.
Tell us about your show.
My show, like most stand-up, is all me. I wrote it, directed it, I’m bloody in it! That’s the beauty of stand-up: you are the absolute boss. But you do have to do all the driving – swings and roundabouts.
I often get described as dark and poetic, which is fair. I don’t really try to be like that. That’s just me being me. I’ve had a crazy life and some of my show is about that. Now I’m feeling old, and some of my show is about that
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
My show is at 23.40 so afterwards you should see a lot of happy drunk people… Why not join them! (Don’t go to Cowgate, watch out for seagulls.)
If you want another show Tiff Stevenson – Bombshell.
