What will your set next week be all about?

 Sarcasm, exaggeration, child rearing, planned engineering works, hens … it’s about all of the usual stuff, really. 

Why is sarcasm known as the lowest form of wit?

 I have no idea at all why it is considered the lowest form of wit. It’s a national pastime here in the UK. We certainly think we’re good at it!

What’s the best thing about being a stand-up comedian? 

The short shifts. 

Where was your first gig and how did it go?

 It was in a pub in Islington. It went reasonably well, and was enough to get me hooked on stand-up from then on. 

What’s the funniest thing you have ever seen? 

My three-year-old dancing the robot. 

Who is your all-time favourite comedy idol?

Woody Allen.
