What are you expecting from this year’s Festival? To have fun with the show and the comics I love. I’m excited about doing the show as I haven’t done one since 2008, and I feel better equipped to deal with it.
How are you preparing for the Festival? I try and get a cold in early July, so I’m clear of disease for August. I do this by not eating properly and hanging around with reprobates. Then I realise that’s what I do all year round, anyway.
What advice would you give someone coming to the Festival for the first time? Don’t read any reviews. Of anyone. Try to have as much fun with the show as possible and try and be pleased when others do well, as Edinburgh’s one big bubble. Go to Portobello on your day off.
What’s your worst Edinburgh memory? In 2005 I got paid £20 by a punter to get off the stage in The Comedy Zone.
