You have to be joking? Archie Maddocks

The joke that you loved but no one else did?

“Played a lot of video games growing up, warped my perception of reality. Gave me unrealistic expectations of plumbers. I thought Ninjas would be a common issue. I’ve never once seen a ninja anywhere. That is a word where you wanna make sure your enunciation is on point. N-I-N-J-A. You got to hit that second N. Otherwise, different group entirely, also unfairly marginalised”.

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

My self-esteem is f*****d. My current girlfriend came up to me in a club and said “I think you’re sexy”. I said, “you’re wrong”.

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

Richard Pryor and Dave Chappelle.

The last thing that made you cry with laughter?

A play called ‘Nine Night’. It had a line in it that floored me and most of the audience. Pure Caribbean auntie-ness at its zenith.
