What’s the weirdest venue you’ve played at the Fringe?
I am sure a few people have said this but it was in a lift in the Pleasance Courtyard. Ten minutes of stand up to around five other lift occupants. I was probably more worried about my breath stinking than getting laughs.
What’s been your most embarrassing Fringe moment?
It was probably during Late ‘n’ Live in 2002 after seeing red when some obnoxious hecklers got quite sinister. I finished the gig and went right down to the audience to continue the discussion. We were all kicked out.
Any after-hours confessions?
Cycling without a light on my bike. (I am a bit of a go home early in Edinburgh kind of guy. Wish I had more for you on that one.)
Who’s the most unusual person you’ve met in Edinburgh?
What would you win a prize for at the Fringe?
The most consistent pre-8am riser.
