Briefly describe your show.
It’s late at night. You’re in a room with an attractive but strange little man under the impression that he is both David Bowie and both of The Chemical Brothers. His show is falling apart, his brain is falling apart but it doesn’t seem to matter: you’re laughing too much to worry about it.

What was the inspiration behind your show? Electric Cabaret was built up over years and years of playing in pubs like the Crown & Anchor around the country. I really hammered this material out based on what worked with crowds, which let me build a lot of really weird ideas into it. It’s a very intense, delightfully messed up party. The show is all about the brain-fry of being in front of an audience, and it gets pretty dark, but it peaks in a euphoric, awesome way. The music is built around synthy techno, a bit in the area of The Presets or The Chemical Brothers.

What makes your show different? It’s a techno cabaret show with video projections, insane costume changes, punk rock audience work and a pretty all-in nervous breakdown that somehow manages to be stupid amounts of fun. So, I guess what I’m saying is that the answer to this is everything. I’ve toured a lot with my act now, and I think even though I knew my show was a bit odd before, now that I’ve been to a lot of places and seen nothing that’s anything like it, I’m pretty solid in saying everything is different from this. I accept weird as fuck.

What was the biggest challenge you encountered in this show? It’s a really tough show to describe: it’s come together from throwing so much shit against the wall that there’s not a lot of reference points. It’s weirdness is what makes it kickass; it’s the show that everyone loves the most out of all of my things. It’s odd: my other show I’m bringing is my Crap Music Rave Party. That’s a DJ show where I only play bad music; the concept is so easy to get to grips with, so I barely advertise that and it sells out. This is a lot more enigmatic. So come find out what it is.

Why did you decide to do Fringe 2015? And have you been involved in previous/interstate Fringe festivals and how was the experience? I keep pretty busy, touring festivals in Australia and Europe through the year and then running a big hub venue at Perth’s Fringe World festival in February. Adelaide Fringe has become a bit of an annual working holiday: my wife and I head over, drink all of your nice wine, watch all of your shows and remind each other that we exist while I perform to lovely audiences. Adelaide Fringe was the first place I ever toured a show interstate and it was a huge experience for me, so it always feels like home to me. Plus, I was born in your city: Maslin Beach. Yeah, that one.

And for a fun random one, in a fantasy world who would you be the love child of? David Lynch and Daft Punk.
