Please tell us about your brand of comedy- what can audiences expect?

JoJo Bellini by Mark Dawson

JoJo Bellini by Mark Dawson

My brand? Pure joy. A little bit cheeky, a little bit saucy and a whole lot of fabulous!

Which comedians have been your biggest influence?

I love clowning, and the absolute silliness of it all. Carol Burnett, Lucille Ball and Dr Brown.

What random things make you laugh in everyday life?

I want to say farts but I'm not going to.

Please tell us about your best and worst moment on stage so far.

My best moment on stage so far? Tossing a doily blindly over my shoulder and having it land in the soup!

My worst moment? Ruining the soup I just made for the audience by accidentally throwing a doily in there.

Do you still get nervous when you do a gig?

Oh yes, but a glass of prosecco and a fabulous outfit always do well to calm those nerves.

Why is Edinburgh Fringe Festival such a great platform for comedians?

It gets some of the greatest, funny and creative minds together in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Everyone puts their best foot forward or in my case their best jazz hands.

Who are you looking forward to seeing as an audience member?

Top picks are John Robertson and Louise Reay.

What is your advice to aspiring comedians?

Enjoy yourself on stage. The audience want you to succeed as much as you do!

What is the oddest heckle you've ever received?

"Is that even a Tom Jones song?"... My show has only Tom Jones songs.

What is next for you?

Post Edinburgh Fringe I will be performing in my show in London as well as starting to create my next foray into silliness which at this stage is going under the working title "Bellini After Dark". It will be quite a naughty one!
