If you could invite anyone to your show (and you knew they would come), who would it be?
Beyonce, Jay Z and Solange. Then we would join forces and turn our show into a blockbuster musical.

The Melbourne Fringe in three words?
Manic. Colourful. Local.

A favourite Melbourne Fringe memories?
The final night of my show Cut Snake in 2011. We crammed 60 people into a tiny room above a pub. The actors were sweating like mad and we weren’t sure if they could land any of the acrobatics. They nailed it. Was a lot of fun.

What do you think makes the Melbourne Fringe unique?
It’s still small enough to feel like a tight-knit community, like we are all in it together.

Your advice for choosing what to see in the Melbourne Fringe?
Start by booking three things on the same night – then go to the club and talk to people. You’ll get a solid shortlist pretty quickly.
