Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
I visited when I was a little kid, and I came to the Fringe for few days last year to get the lay of the land (mostly to acclimatize myself to the Scottish accent).
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’18?
Premiering this damn show and bringing it to about a dozen cities across the States. I also correctly used the manual paper feed on a printer, first try.
Tell us about your show.
The tagline is that I was a married, 21-year-old monogamous Evangelical, then I became the opposite: it’s a true solo comedy show about faith, non-monogamy and KFC. Edinburgh is the show’s international premiere and my EdFringe debut. I plan to take it to more cities in the US after August but also – hopefully – to some spots around the UK late 2019 or 2020!
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
After my show to go Calton Hill and take in the view, I hear it’s killer. After that: Jamie Loftus who is absurd and great; Mike Lemme and Sam Morrison who are both funny and just good dudes, Molly Brenner who’s worked her tail off on her show, and Kyle Legacy, who’s unwell but a sweet boy.
