The joke that you loved but no one else did?
I used to brainstorm ideas for Looney Tunes. I would sit in an office and say things like a fire hydrant bursts so a stray dog goes to a shop buys some soap and a towel then treats himself to a shower. Until a fire engine full of tomcats arrives to fix the leak and fine the dog 400 bucks. They did up using that idea but they re-cast it with Porky Pig and Elmer Fudd, which is why I left.
The joke that worked but you are not so proud that it had?
I got a postcard from a deep-sea diver however the content is a little dry.
The comedian(s) that made you want to be a comedian?
I was sent round the world with this ludicrous act and came back a terrified penniless peddler so not sure it’s a good career choice but I would have to say The Jerky Boys and Chris Morris.
The last thing that made you cry with laughter?
A video of David Lynch on Cooking Quinoa:
He can make boiling eggs seem sinister.
