Humans of Comedy Interview
Who is the human behind the comedian?
You know, I’m just like any honest part time crime fighter, I’d do it full time, but I only watch crimewatch once a week.
How did you start comedy?
I did a laughing horse comedy course back in February 2020 When going to the pub was still legal
Why? Because I wanted a pint? No, because I’d kick myself if I didn’t try it.
How was your first stand-up experience? Not sure, I kind of blacked out.
What was your biggest failure?
My first comedy experience, no. To quote someone completely not talking about comedy: You win or you learn. In essence, you never fail.
What was your biggest success?
Convincing the world I’m a mere mortal. That and my tea making ability, seriously It’s championship level.
What is your best memory?
The one I get all of a sudden when I’ve been trying to remember that actors name for a whole bloody week!
What is your favourite comedian?
This week? Anthony Jeselnek
Why? He’s a great study for comic timing and a master of misdirection.
A book or show you recommend?
I’m a true crime guy, I would say anything from Tony Thompson or Reefer Men, probably the best true crime story I’ve ever read and if they make it into a movie I gotta be in it, I feel like I’ve earned a role.
How comedy transformed you/shaped you as the person you are today?
Not sure, I kinda feel like I’m the same idiot I was before I started.
What lesson did you learn from comedy?
Don’t take everything so seriously!!
