JEFF LEACH

Actor and comedian Jeff Leach brings his fresh and fearless show to Edinburgh Fringe this month. Eager to find out more, we braced ourselves, tried not to blush and asked him our 10 Quick Questions...

Pitch your Edinburgh show in 25 words or less.

A fearless and revealingly honest insight from Mr Wrong on how to become Mr Right, traversing male prostitution, sex addiction, celibacy, feminism and monogamy.

Your best Edinburgh moment?
Probably in the 950s after the Anglo Saxons were ousted by the Scottish, and they took over the rule of the city, which they often called Dunedin.

And your worst?
2010 when I saw that old man being sick on that cat outside The Penny Black.

You've got one hour free in Edinburgh - what do you do?
Perform another set somewhere. Daddy's jet-set lifestyle won't pay for itself, you know.

Which Edinburgh landmark/venue/place would you give a five star review to?
The Port O' Leith pub. If you manage more than 10 minutes without feeling like you're going to get your throat cut, you'll probably make some of the best friends you're ever likely to have in your life.

Give us a secret Edinburgh tip!
If you approach any Edinburgh local and give them the secret handshake (stroking the back of their neck lightly with your thumb and forefinger), they'll take you to the nearest fantastic restaurant. No, honestly... try it!

Deep-fried haggis or deep-fried Mars bar?
It sounds as if you might need a deep-fried heart bypass soon enough, you wally!

Kilt or trousers?
Tartan trousers.

Arthur's Seat or Arthur Smith?
Arthur Smith stood on Arthur's Seat in those tartan trousers I mentioned previously.

Complete this sentence: “In Edinburgh, I will be mainly...
...performing every evening between 21.30 and 22.30 at the Gilded Balloon. I'm a professional.

Like he just said, Jeff Leach: Boyfriend Experience is at 21.30 at the Gilded Balloon, 1-27 August. Find out more and book tickets here.
