It’s about armed-robberies, toasters, sushi, and seafood. I talk about them separately, though – I didn’t rob a sushi place for a toaster!

Have you always been scared of crabs?

Crabs are hardcore! You can’t shake a crab’s hand. No matter how friendly you are to them, they will try to snip you. I want to say: ‘I’m sorry you’re no good at rock, paper, scissors – it’s not my fault.’

What’s the funniest thing you have seen this week?

At the airport in Bangkok, I saw a book called Cooking With Poo.Turns out ‘poo’ is the Thai word for crab, but it opened up a whole series of strange recipes in my mind … steamed poo with ginger. Soft-shell poo … the immaturity is endless!

What’s the weirdest gig you have done so far?

I once performed to a group of people at a buffet. Those were the glory days! You haven’t lived until someone asks you for
a bread roll … mid-joke.
