You have to be joking? Elf Lyons

The joke that you loved but no one else did?

I have a joke about Schrodingers cat in my show, which I refuse to take out, because for the one person who laughs at it each time, that is enough.

Also I used to have a joke regarding the 1969 ken Loach film ‘Kes’ in my last show,  which I will admit IS NICHE, but I refused to take it out because I loved it so much and I thought ‘if anything, this will encourage people to watch the film’.

The joke that worked but you are not so proud that it had?

Oh I am not sure! Anytime I read my comedy journals from when I first started I face palm and think WHAT WAS I THINKING.

The comedians that made you want to be a comedian?

French & Saunders, Dave Allen, Emo Phillips, The Mighty Boosh, Tamsin Greig, Green Wing.

The last thing that made you cry with laughter?

Yesterday my comedy partner Ryan Lane and I rewrote the whole Grease Megamix and changed the lyrics to the rules of table tennis. We spent most of that time on the floor in tears because it is so silly. But we are so proud of what we have accomplished.
