So the Edinburgh festival is behind us and it feels a little bit of anti climax after the long build up but it was a hell of an experience.
There is a thin line between confidence and hubris; putting on a comedy show when the Olympics has come to your country may well have hurdled/ pole vaulted / swan dived over that line.
I think it is fair to say audiences were hard to come by for the first half of the festival but the last 10 nights were all full and the show ended on a wonderful high. I am definitely a better performer for having had a challenging time and the show was something I am very proud of. I got some lovely reviews from which I have selected a couple of quotes on my press page.
Now to pastures new, I am really looking forward to working on my new hour of stand up. But first I have the rare treat of an acting job. A feature film no less. I am very excited about this if not a little nervous about the size of the project. I will be having a short break from stand up for filming but I am doing some gigs in the middle of the shoot just to keep my hand in so it won’t be too big a break.
I have booked lots of new gigs for the autumn. I will try and keep my gig page up to date so keep an eye on it if you wondering when I’ll be in your area.
