Edinburgh, the Fringe, why bother?
Partly because I’m contractually obliged and partly because Joel Dommett said he’d buy me an ice cream.
What have been the nuggets of inspiration behind your show this year?
Gold nuggets, Chicken McNuggets and the Denver Nuggets.
Stand-out Fringe moment to date?
When you wished a hole had opened up in the ground and swallowed you up?
Your unsung heroes in the industry at current?
Three shows you must see this Fringe?
Sam Campbell – I think he is a genius. If you want something that is completely original and utterly brilliant then go see Sam.
Tom Walker – winner of Best Newcomer at this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Tom is genuinely one of the funniest and sharpest performers I know.
Rhys Nicholson – if you like your JPM’s (jokes per minute) high, then this is the show you must see. Rhys is as slick as they come and utterly hilarious.
The one person you’d love to see your show and why?
James Acaster. Our shows always clash at festivals, so he hasn’t been able to see me yet. He pretends to be disappointed but deep down I know he’s avoiding me because he owes me five quid.
The reason why one should come and see your show?
The one thing in Edinburgh you must do?
