It's funny! People call me dark so I guess I am. This show is semi political. All though where most political comics offer solutions I am content with laughing at how stupid everyone is. Also, I talk about crack a lot but I have never done it which feels hypocritical. So, if anyone wants to stick around after the show and do it, it would make me a better person

Which comedians have been your biggest influence?

Richard Pryor, Sam Kennison, and crazy Dave

What random things make you laugh in everyday life?

Crack and brexit.

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

I was told that I should've been killed at birth. And then the rest of the audience beat the shit out of him.

Do you still get nervous when you do a gig?

no, it's not worth the energy. I could use that energy looking for crack.

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

A lot of drugs all over the place

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

Phil Ellis, Dylan Gott, Johnny Pelham

What is your advice to aspiring comedians?

Get me crack

What is the oddest heckle you've ever received?

Someone shouted that he would give me herpes, for free. I was like, "Buddy, throw in a crack rock, and you have yourself a deal.''

What is next for you?

Crack…. No, seriously I have a show called "A Brief History of Tim'' out on BBC 3 in September.
