This is your eighth Edinburgh hour in 11 years, what keeps you coming back?

I suppose you use Edinburgh differently as you go through your career. When you first start out, you go to Edinburgh because it's where everybody is and it's a great place for newer comics to be seen.

I don't fall into that category anymore, so for me it's about being part of something and feeling relevant. It's the biggest trade show in comedy in the world so it's good to get some of your wares and stick them out on a stall!
