The joke that you loved but no one else did?
I used to talk about getting a bit of middle-aged spread and panicking, ending up standing in the doctor’s office, holding my own waist, yelling “MEAT SHEATH!” in a really distressed manner. It doesn’t seem in any way funny when I type it out, but I enjoyed having a bit of a yell.
The joke that worked but you are not so proud that it had?
Ugh. Here we go. This one was usually said in response to finding out that an audience member works from home, I can’t guarantee I won’t use this again if I need to:
I used to work from home. The problem was there’s always guys who say things like “Working from home? More like wanking from home!” Which is very disrespectful, as it undermines my achievements in office-based masturbation.
The comedian(s) that made you want to be a comedian?
John Clarke, an Aussie/Kiwi legend. Quintessentially dry Antipodean humour.
The last thing that made you cry with laughter?
The Delightful Sausage’s new show, Regeneration Game. And that was just a work in progress that I saw – if it’s not a stone-cold classic by the time it hits Edinburgh, then they must have really fucked it up.
