Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
I’ve been clocking in at the dream factory since accommodation was cheap. I’ve gigged off the beaten track, down piss-soaked alleys, and in an elusive basement at noon where before each performance the bar staff evicted anyone who wasn’t carrying ID – most people at lunchtime – it was a challenge. This year I’m at Monkey Barrel which is fantastic.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’18?
Joining The Cutting Edge team at The Comedy Store. And having a baby… I’m discreetly knocking them out between Edinburgh shows.
Tell us about your show.
I’m a stand up. I tell jokes about domestic bliss – and sometimes I tell the truth. More generally it’s about my struggle to be a narcissist in the current climate. Everyone’s so self-obsessed these days it’s almost impossible to be the biggest dick in the room.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
If you’re a punter and you want to have fun – definitely more stand up – Candy Gigi Markham, Danny Ward, Luke McQueen, Tiff Stevenson, Lou Sanders, to name a few. If you’re an act and you want to crack the fringe – look out for anyone crying into their pint – find out where they’ve gone wrong and try to avoid making the same mistakes.
