The joke that you loved but no one else did?
Last year a peer from the House of Lords came to my show and I accidentally called him a nonce in front of his kids. I didn’t realise they were his children and it really turned the crowd against me but I thought it was hilarious. So did he to be fair, but if you can’t laugh at yourself etc
The joke that worked but you are not so proud that it had?
I used to have this thing where if a gig was going really really badly I’d just read out a list of jokes about my knob to try and get it back on track. Thankfully I haven’t had to use it for a while (not a humblebrag, I just haven’t been gigging as much as I should) but I’m packing it for Edinburgh.
The comedians that made you want to be a comedian?
In my last years of school I spent most of my time at my mate’s flat watching Kevin Hart and Dave Chappelle on Netflix, so they were the comics most immediate in my mind when I started. Also Johnny Vegas and Lenny Bruce. But I mainly started because of my ego.
The last thing that made you cry with laughter?
A phone call with Red Richardson a couple of days ago.
