Edinburgh, the Fringe, why bother?
I hope that’s not a rhetorical question. Well, the Fringe is where almost every comedian you can think of has come to prove them self. It’s like boot camp for comedy.
What have been the nuggets of inspiration behind your show this year?
Stand-out Fringe moment to date?
I was flyering for my show last year, and a woman approached me and said, “I hate everything you stand for” then walked off.
When you wished a hole had opened up in the ground and swallowed you up?
I’ve made a. Ah well, faux pas, so good.
Your unsung heroes in the industry at current?
Limmy & Will Franken.
Three shows you must see this Fringe?
Bill Burr, Sam Fletcher, Limmy: Daft Wee Stories.
The one person you’d love to see your show and why?
John Cleese. He once apparently wrote his “three laws of comedy”:
1) No puns.
2) No puns.
3) No puns.
The reason why one should come and see your show?
Last year’s show had 210 gags in it, I think this show has more, come and count them.
The one thing in Edinburgh you must do?
If you’re an act, get lots of sleep, if you’re a visitor, don’t sleep.
Ah sorry, you’re dead. But least you can have that dinner party you’ve always wanted. Who are you inviting?
Boris Johnson and Donald Trump. And then I’d lock them in there.
