Tell me about your 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show.
It’s a re-hash of what was supposed to be my 2020 show e.g. a stand up analysis of why I don’t seem to enjoy things or enjoy them “correctly”. Strangely enough, in those two years I have discovered the answer, so maybe covid was worthwhile for all of us.
Who is Mrs Tiggy-Winkle?
She is the footprints in the sand, the alpha and the omega.
Tell me about BudPod – which you host with Phil Wang
It’s a weekly podcast where two old buds, Phil and I, have a chat and also some odd little sketches and listener correspondence. For our own sanity, it’s broadly formatless, but I think it’s stronger for it and, naturally, the greatest comedy podcast our nation has ever produced.
You’ve supported the likes of Frank Skinner, Dave Gorman, Hal Cruttenden and Gary Delaney on tour. Any gossip?
Frank and I very much enjoyed wandering through Whitby Abbey but let’s just say our conversation erred a little more on the side of the Synod of Whitby and Anglo-Saxon history generally and a little less toward Bram Stoker! Hal, Gary and Dave are all lovely chaps too.
Finally, ask and answer a question of your own.
Is there anywhere we can see an example of your comedy?
Yes! On YouTube you can find my hour-long special ‘Quiet Ones’ and watch it for free and various other small clips from the pastTitle of
