It has been over 6 months of hard slog preparing for the Brighton Fringe. I have been learning three comedy scripts for Bite-Size productions, fitting in rehearsals, working on/perfoming my stand-up set, writing a fringe show with my partner, promoting the shows/work I am doing, writing ideas for a show for a possible fringe show next year, blogging about the Brighton Fringe, performing preview shows...and the rest! (Plus, like many other performers I hold down a full time job to pay my bills).

I also made an effort to spend lots of money on Brighton Fringe tickets to see lots of comedy shows and support the festival. See my previous blog posts which mention the shows I went to see and recommended. (Click Here)
I loved Anna Morris's show, 'Bitchelors', now called, 'Would like to thank'. I was inspired and blown away by the Colin Hoult shows which I dragged many of my friends along to at The Warren (my favourite venue). They were all glad I did as we all had face ache from laughing too much.
There were many other great shows that I really enjoyed such as, 'Heat pumps, Kate Garraway & other niche concerns' with Julie Oliver & Phil Lucas at The Temple bar. Lynn Ruth Miller's show '80!' and Zoe Charles' show, 'Memoirs of a Slutsky' at The Marlborough Theatre. (There were many more, but these ones are the ones I can remember off the top of my head! Did I mention I am a bit tired?!)
Working with the Bite-Size team was hard work, but rewarding. I got to work with some of my close friends from previous projects and made some more new friends. Our home throughout the Brighton Fringe was at the Latest Music Bar every Sunday morning for 5 weeks. I know I will miss getting up early on a Sunday morning to go and perform in the venue. (I never thought I would say that sentence, ever).

I wore my Designosaur Royal Pavilion Necklace to the Latest Awards.
The award ceremony was a lovely way to end my Brighton Fringe and I can't wait for next year!

Some of the Bite-Size Team
Thank you to the Brighton Fringe team and Julian Caddy for a great festival. Thanks to my lovely cast mates and new friends. Also, thank you to everyone who came along to support the various projects I was involved in and voted for me in the awards. I really appreciate it. I will be putting more photographs on my facebook page soon from behind the scenes.
I am now taking all that inspiration and spare time I now have to start work on my next project which I hope to be a fringe show for 2015. Watch this space.
