What’s the show about?

I’m working on a set about the culture of the Job Centre compared to the worst night club in the world. It’s an unexplored area full of comedy gold.

What’s the weirdest gig you’ve ever done?

A Valentine’s Day singles night for 40 to 50-year-olds in north London. The singles area was sectioned off with a stained curtain and the lights were dimmed like a seedy strip joint. I supported Sol Bernstein [a comedy character], who’s an old Jewish man and he hilariously insulted most of audience. “You’re 50, give up pal.” It was a bizarre evening with a very strange vibe.

Who inspired you to pick up the mic?

I always made my friends laugh. One evening I saw a new comic bomb on an open mic stage. I thought, ‘I can do that…’. I did and completely bombed.

What is the funniest thing you have ever seen?

I’ve seen a man maniacally preach about the British values and culture inherent in a three-pin plug!
