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

A blend of storytelling and observational comedy with a bloke-ish tinge to it. Most importantly though, it's hilarious, which really helps.

Which comedians have been your biggest influence since you decide this was your path? 

Bill Burr, Louis CK, Lawrence Mooney & Jim Jefferies. While all have their own unique styles, I love that they can make important topics funny whilst using simple language.

What random things make you laugh in everyday life? 

My fiancée is constantly making up ridiculous songs and dances in our house. Gets me every time.

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

I've been fortunate enough to have a lot of brilliant moments career-wise. Can't choose a best. Performing at JFL Montreal, filming my special at The Metro Theatre in Sydney, closing out the Melbourne Comedy Festival AllStars Gala are some of them.

Worst moments are anytime I had to do gigs I didn't want to do but needed the cash. Corporates and cruise ships come to mind.

Do you still get nervous when you do a gig?

Only in new environments like a town I've never performed in or at a particular club or theatre. It's only brief and then manifests into excitement.

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

Punters will take a risk on acts that they haven't heard of because it's a festival. Festivals have helped me tremendously when it comes to building a fan base. When people like you, they want to come back year after year. It's a great feeling.

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

Daniel Sloss, Funz & Gamez and Kai Humphries. Always brilliant. Always leave their shows sore from laughing.

What is your advice to aspiring comedians? 

Do every gig that you can. 2 hours away for a five minute free spot? Do it. Do them all. Only way to get better.

What is the oddest heckle you've ever received? 

Daniel Sloss brought me beers on stage for my birthday at the NZ Comedy Festival then had the crowd sing me happy birthday. Technically a heckle but a delicious one. The drinks were also nice.

What is next for you? 

My first ever tour of China, then some more touring in Australia and capping it off by filming my second special "What Of It?" in November.
