If you could invite anyone to your show (and you knew they would come), who would it be?
Greta Gerwig.

The Melbourne Fringe in three words.
Salsa dancing greyhound.

A favourite Melbourne Fringe memory.
This is my first Melbourne Fringe! Ask me at the end of the month!

Your experience as an independent artist being part of the Melbourne Fringe.
So far it has been great! I’m excited to get down to Melbourne and see it in full force!

What makes the Melbourne Fringe unique?
Melbourne! The city itself is unique and is what makes a fringe festival special. The people, the venues and the spirit of a city is what impacts any fringe.

Your advice for choosing what to see in the Melbourne Fringe.
Take a punt. You’re more than likely going to make a good choice about the kind of show you want to see and even if you do end up at show that isn’t your cup of tea, it will make for a good story later.

Do you think there’s a better system than star ratings for reviews?
I’d rather five donuts. Or maybe we should be made to jelly wrestle?

Five shows/events that you will not miss at the 2017 Melbourne Fringe.
