Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
Oh, I’ve been here before, don’t you worry about that. Sure, I’ve done shows, but more importantly, I used to date someone in Edinburgh, so have spent time here outside of Fringe time. Any idiot can book a show for August, starting a relationship with a local shows real commitment to the city.
Tell us about your show.
It’s all by me and me alone. If it stinks, then that’s on me. If it’s a raging hit, I will be humble and say it was luck or the guiding hand of my dead Nan or something like that, but you will know that I will be secretly wallowing in crass self-congratulation.
I’ve been hammering the show into shape in Brighton, London and other southern cities, but it will not be truly fit for human consumption until August. After that, I’m gonna see how the Aussie festivals feel about it.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
The Delightful Sausage. I loved last year’s show and have just seen a preview of this years and it is better and funnier already.
