You have to be joking? Eshaan Akbar

The joke that you loved but no one else did?

Not long after the Westminster Bridge attacks, I did a joke apologising for running late to the gig and said that I had left my car on Westminster Bridge and ran.

3 people out of 50 laughed. They come to all my gigs now.

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

I’m proud of every joke I ever write because all I care about is smashing. I have no regrets. Just talent.

The comedian(s) that made you want to be a comedian?

Lee Evans was the first that made me laugh. Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle made me think and laugh. Frankie Boyle made me grimace and laugh.

The last thing that made you cry with laughter

My local barbers is a family business – 2 brothers and 2 cousins. One of the cousins is 13/14 and just helps to sweep and hang around. His older cousins/brothers make him read out definitions from the Urban Dictionary. When I was getting my hair cut, they made him read out the definition for “soggy biscuit”. He read it out loud and his main question was “What’s a digestive biscuit”?
