What advice would you give to performers coming to the Festival for the first time?
The Fringe is one of the best places to start and to learn your craft. Embrace it and enjoy it, but don’t get lost in the excitement in case your show suffers. You never know who is in the audience – casting agents or reviewers – so you can’t afford a bad show

What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?

Don’t believe you’re in competition with anyone else. Your time will come when its right to come.

What’s your best Festival memory?
I was in a show at the Gilded Ballon when the fire alarm went off and the entire building had to be evacuated. Like the Pied Piper the audience followed me, numbers swelled, other comics joined and it turned into an impromptu outdoor festival.
