The Sun ‘news’paper Sent Me Some Interview Questions. They Refused To Print My Answers. Guess Why. . .
1 ) What’s your show called, and what’s it about?
Soul For Sale. . . This show is about how a dilapidated and sleazy art world, a cynical and untrustworthy system of journalism and the miserable homogenization of comedy keep us all quiet and stupid in the face of grand and prevalent injustice. It’s very funny.
2 ) If your Edinburgh show – metaphorically speaking – was an Olympic event, which one would it be and why?
Shot put. . . but we would all be aiming for Kelvin Mackenzie’s mouth. . . Because my show is all about telling wrong people to shut up, also then he would stop ruining Question Time for me.
3 ) What’s been the greatest moment of your last twelve months?
The Arrest of Andy Coulson
4 ) Best and worst ever gigs?
The one where people laughed more than they ever laughed was the best, it was in Aberystwyth. The worst was the one where no one laughed. It was in Port Talbot.
5 ) What would be your absolute fantasy, dream outcome from this year’s Edinburgh?
To somehow see Jeremy Clarkson crying. I think it would be really funny.
6 ) What’s been keeping your mind active recently, other than comedy?
Not your paper and The Leveson Inquiry.
7 ) What are the best lessons you’ve learnt from going to Edinburgh?
Almost all comedy is dreadful.
8 ) Where, when and what inspires you – creatively – the most?
justice |ˈjəstis|noun1 just behavior or treatment : a concern for justice, peace, and genuine respect for people.• the quality of being fair and reasonable : the justice of his case.
9 ) Fill in the blanks; If you like,____, ____, & ____ then you’ll enjoy coming to see my show!
truth, comedy, swearing.
