The joke that you loved but no one else did?
I did one of those panel shows where they had a round ‘Americanise Famous Books’
I said Benjamin Franklinstein and waited for the gales of laughter at my brilliant brilliant joke. Nothing.
The joke that worked but you are not so proud that it had?
SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM!
Turtle Face. I’m saying nothing more here. But do feel free to come up to me in person and ask me about it.
The comedians that made you want to be a comedian?
There’s the obvious answers like KItson and Stewart Lee, Eddie Izzard and they are all true to an extent. But the first comedian I chatted to ever was Andy Askins. I cornered him after I’d seen him at the Manchester Comedy Store, I told him I’d love to be a comedian and he chatted to me for about half an hour telling me I should be. I did my first gigs a fortnight later. I was terrible.
The last thing that made you cry with laughter?
Ed Gambles bit in his last show about his Girlfriend and George Harrison. It’s the funniest bit of stand up I think I’ve ever seen. I had a chest infection and every laugh was agony, but I didn’t care.
