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.
I’ve got little ankles and a bit of a belly, so it makes me look rather an egg on legs.
With stand-up you’ve just got that one chance. Audiences can be quite fickle.
