Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
I’ve taken a show up every year since 2011. I love the fringe. It’s like puberty but with more Berocca.
Tell us about your show.
I wrote this show in 2015, took it to the fringe in 2016 and am taking it back again due to a complete lack of demand! The show was a massive commercial disaster last year – hardly anyone saw it. I was in a venue in butt-fudge nowhere at a ridiculously competitive time.
However, the feedback from everyone that did come was overwhelmingly complimentary. And I love doing it. I think it’s a fantastic show, which I’m really proud of. It’s some of the most hilariously honest bullshit you’ll ever see.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
MARVELus: All the Marvel movies. Kind Of. 12:30pm // The City Cafe.
It’s a sketch/semi-improvised show based on the current Marvel superhero movies!
As recommended as it is geeky!
