Please tell me about your 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show:

The Writing on the Stall is a one-woman bathroom stall graffiti musical, literally set in a dive bar bathroom.


What is the attraction of performing at the Edinburgh Fringe? What do you think of Edinburgh?

I first attended the Fringe in 2017 and fell in love. With the fringe, with the city, and with the spirit that takes over for all of August. I saw the weirdest, silliest, most out there shows, and I thought: I have to come back here. It can be a grueling month, but it’s also turned me into a better performer.


Who inspires you?

Bo Burnham, James Acaster, Tim Minchin, Tenacious D, Flight of the Conchords, Catherine Cohen, Maria Bamford, Zach Galifianakis… really anyone that’s doing something genre-bending and pushing the boundaries in comedy.


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

I always try to catch David O’Doherty, Stewart Lee, Fern Brady, Daniel Sloss, Nish Kumar, Flo & Joan, Larry Dean, Alaisdair Beckett-King, and a couple of my other favorites every year. Americans I can recommend: Chris Gethard, Emmy Blotnick, Jacqueline Novak, Marcia Belsky, Anthony DeVito, Gabe Mollica, Business Casual.


Finally, ask and answer a question of your own.

Did you know that a baby armadillo is called an armadiglet?
