David Fulton is a US comic living in London and, get this, he’s great. All of the comics I interview at Acme Comedy Company’s 20th Anniversary in Minneapolis are great. He has a Masters in Music Composition, he restores old motorcycles and he climbs frozen waterfalls. Yes. He might be the coolest dork ever. He interviews ME for the first 10 minutes. Too much info, Rangers. But it’s great, Enjoy!
