What do you do?
“I write and perform funny stuff. Sometimes I’ll also write non-funny stuff, but I won’t perform that. Of course by funny, I meant ‘attempted funny’.”
“I’m not really good at anything else. I weigh 8 and a half stone, so manual labour is out of the question – and I don’t have a great brain on me. I seem to be all right at this sort of thing, so I might as well stick with it; for a while at least.”
How do I get as good as you?
“Well that’s subjective isn’t it. Peter Lupton (a young man who follows my work obsessively like I am some kind of comedy messiah) would say you’d have to work 24/7 for 10 years before you’re as good as me, but that stone-faced woman in the front row at last night’s gig would argue that everyone is all ready a million times better than me. I am aware that didn’t answer your question, but I’m sticking with it ’cause the use of the word ‘subjective’ made me sound a little bit clever. ”
