Piff the Magic Dragon

Just your typical magical dragon performing grumpy magic accompanied by a magic performing rescue Chihuahua. Expect funny things you won't believe and mild Chihuahua peril.

Which comedians have been your biggest influence?

Penn & Teller, Jerry Seinfeld, Amazing Jonathan, Eddie Izzard, Rowan Atkinson

What random things make you laugh in everyday life?

Chihuahuas falling over. It never ceases to be funny.

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

Best: Kissing Heidi Klum.

Worst: Mr Piffles recently had a stomach upset at a show and pebble dashed the floor like Jackson Pollock. Cleaning it up was a new low.

Do you still get nervous when you do a gig?

Only when Heidi Klum is around.

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

It's open access and as close to a meritocracy as you're going to find in show business. I credit the festival with making my career.

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

Steve. It's been far too long.

What is your advice to aspiring comedians?

Be funny. That's really all you need to achieve.

What is the oddest heckle you've ever received?

Once a guy told me he used to be a magician. What happened, I asked. He replied, I grew up. Brutal.

What is next for you?

Back to Vegas where Mr Piffles and I perform every Monday to Wednesday through 2016 at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino in the heart of the Las Vegas strip. Every Thursday - Sunday we tour all over the USA, playing comedy clubs, theatres, casinos and private parties. Basically we are living the magic dragon dream.

Piff The Magic Dragon 'Direct From Las Vegas' will be at the Assembly George Square Theatre from 3rd - 13th August for tickets go to
