I’ve got too much respect for stand-ups to call myself one.
It is easy for me to love myself, but for ladies to do it is another question altogether.
Up North you are holding your own. Everyone considers themselves a comedian.
You can’t be a proper comic unless you’ve been out on stage and felt the fear.
I always say that the stand-up world is the arena of the unwell, and it is.
I want to be buried with Monkey. The thought of anybody else working with him would be too much.
I avoid any kind of organised trips as that’s one of my bugbears.
I had a massive amount of self-belief when I did stand-up.
The idea of being on TV 24 hours a day and people seeing the real me… No.
I still give myself the right to be highly critical of others, though.
