Tour support for Sean Lock and Rob Beckett, Paul McCaffrey is one of the most solid stand-ups around.
At this stage, how closely does your programme blurb match the content of your show?
Do you know what, it’s starting to resemble it more as time is going on. I think my blurb is purposefully quite vague but it definitely is along the same sort of lies
Have the momentous events of 2016 affected your comedy in any way?
No more than any other year. I don’t do politics so there’s none of that. I hope that as I’ve been doing it another year, I will be a better comic
Who are you sharing a flat with this festival and how will you help each other survive the month?
I will be sharing as always with Matt Forde. Lots of curry is always one thing that we swear by, we also go out to dinner a lot. Times have changed since we first became Edinburgh roommates. There’ll be no rolling in at 5am or any of that carry on. It’s a very lowkey flat
Any shows you’re particularly excited about seeing?
Matt Forde, Carl Donnelly
Other than the great shows, what else are you looking forward to about your trip to Edinburgh this year?
The rooftop spa at the Sheraton Hotel. I joined last year, I was living like a billionaire.
What celebrity death hit you the hardest in 2016 (mine was Wogan)?
Bowie. I’m a huge fan, saw him twice. Really sad
Here’s a space to write about anything you want. Go for it.
I’ve just bought some new deodorant and it smells like chewing gum
