The joke that you loved but no one else did?
I used to do a very niche routine about Edouard Manet and Claude Monet having very similar surnames and being alive at the same time. I would pretend to be Manet on the phone getting irritated because people wanted to talk about The Water Lillies, which was actually Monet’s work. Like I say, it was niche and often got nothing but I loved doing it.
The joke that worked but you are not so proud that it had?
Had a joke once that contained the words “behind a skip” and “ fingered”. It used to get a big laugh and I died inside every time. But it was at that point where I just didn’t want to die at big weekend gigs full of pissed up stags. I have since found a better coping mechanism. I don’t do those gigs.
The comedian(s) that made you want to be a comedian?
Robin Williams and Billy Connolly.
The last thing that made you cry with laughter?
It wasn’t anything to do with comedy but rather you can purchase it legally in many fine establishments in Amsterdam.
