You have to be joking? Russ Peers

The joke that you loved but no one else did?

 When you’re gentleman of a certain girth do not try on skinny jeans because they will inevitably make you look like a chicken drumstick.

I still love that joke but maybe it’s just a vision I have in my head that other people don’t get.

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

I had a joke about teenage house parties with couples getting off with each other on a sofa and the punchline was ‘well, every party needs a finger buffet’.

I knew it was a cheap laugh and it also made me feel a bit dirty.

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

Victoria Wood, Peter Kay and Dave Allen.

The last thing that made you cry with laughter? 

A Frankie Boyle warm up gig and a joke about children in a church choir. You definitely had to be there and I wouldn’t dare give away the punchline.
