Tell me about your Edinburgh show.

The show is called ‘Self-Titled”, so at the very least it’ll deliver on what it promises. I talk about my family a lot, they’re a strange mix of super liberal and devoutly religious. I would say the show is more the result of them, rather than inspired by them.

 

Tell me about your first gig.

Why? What have you heard?

 

Do you have any rituals before going on stage?

I play PINK really loudly through my headphones and get pumped up. I refuse to be embarrassed.

 

Tell me about your best and worst review.

The best review was really positive and the worst review was less positive. But, I love them both equally and don’t play favourites.

 

During this Edinburgh run, do you plan to read reviews of your show?

No! But I’m a famous liar!

 

How do you feel about reviewers generally?

I love them! Every single one of them and I can’t wait to meet them! Nothing but good vibes from me!

 

In April 2018, YouTube comedian, Markus Meechan (aka Count Dankula) was fined £800 for training his girlfriend’s pug dog to do a Nazi salute with its paw, in response to the phrase ‘Gas the Jews’. Do you believe Meechan committed a criminal offence, and why?   

I’m not in a position to offer legal advice sorry, but I did google search lawyers and there are heaps available. If you need help finding one I can send you some links, just PM me.

 

Are there any subjects that are not suitable for comedy?

Me. I refuse to be made fun of and if you try, I will find you.

 

Have you ever gone too far?

Yes. And I’d like to take the opportunity now, to take it all back.

 

Looking back over your time as a comedian, tell me about the best gig of your career.

The best gig I ever did was for a fundraiser where I debated Jacinda Ardern who was running to be the PM of our country. It was a rowdy audience who were energised by Jacinda’s race and I killed with that snowflake cuck audience.
