What’s this week’s show about?
Put it this way guys, political dictatorships should be pretty nervous right now … because Aisling Bea is about to TELL IT LIKE IT IS! Not really. General whimsy, I suppose.
What’s the funniest thing you’ve ever seen?
A pigeon eat its way into the middle of a slice of bread so the bread got stuck. He had a bread picture frame round his face. Pigeons are my enemy, so I laughed hard and true at this delicous taste of schadenfreude.
Who inspired you to pick up a mic?
I started working as an actor with The Comedians Theatre Company, run by Phil Nichol and Maggie Inchley.
I have lots of friends who are stand-ups, so I suppose I got some gentle kicks up the arse from them. It was building up the nerve to just do it. Oh and Jesus – he really had a big hand in it.
Tell us a joke …
How do you make an apple puff? Chase it round the garden. Thank you very much, I’ve been Aisling Bea!
