Please tell me about your 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show,

It’s my love letter to the playground of the imagination that is the Edinburgh Fringe on its 75th birthday and I consider some of the triumphs, disasters, love affairs and arrests of my many Augusts in Auld Reekie.


What is the attraction of performing at the Edinburgh Fringe?

It is one of the world’s great parties, an orgy of self-expression and  experimentation. It  welcomes the world and Edinburgh is uniquely beautiful.


Who inspires you?

George Carlin, Shaparak Khorsandi, Leonard Cohen, William Shakespeare  and  Marcus Rashford.


Are there other shows you want to check out during the Fringe?

Simon Munnery, Alexandra Haddow, Ed Night  and loads I don’t know yet.


Finally, ask a question of your own.

What does laughter mean to you?
