God is...dog backwards.
Life is…probable on a long enough timescale.
Love is...impossible to define, simple to understand.
Most amazing actor and why... Daniel Day Lewis. There Will Be Blood and Gangs Of New York — that is why.
Most amazing politician and why... Clement Attlee, for pretty much everything he did to fix Britain post-war.
I live to… Have fun. If you can enjoy yourself while not being a dick, why not?
Sex is... Bloody fantastic. I don’t know why I didn’t start younger.
Freedom is... Scary. It’s a big world out there.
Happiness is… ‘Being loved by your fellow creatures, and feeling that your presence is an addition to their comfort’ (Charlotte Brontë)
Plastic surgery is... Not a cure for disliking your looks.
I wish I was... Able to keep an eye on the world at regular intervals in the future. I’d like to see where we’re going.
I live for... Just one day. (This is a lie. I am not a Mayfly).
I will never... BASE Jump. It’s mental.
I think... People worry too much, and appreciate too little.
My most cherished moment is...Forgotten. My memory is appalling, and all I can think of is getting my degree, but there must have been something better than that.
My biggest asset is... My brain. I like it and willingly waste my time in it.
My phone is... Always on, always silent. Like a ninja.
My first crush... Was a scandinavian girl called Elka. We held hands occasionally from the ages of 6-10.
My fave delicacy... Really great, mature and pungent cheese. You can’t beat cheese.
India is... Not ready for the comedy thunder I am about to bring.
Comedy is... Nothing without tragedy.
Stand-up comedy is... A crazy, crazy way to make a living.
Audience is... A generalised term. Comedy is about the individuals, too.
Money is... Necessary to a point. Anything after that is a bonus.
Describe yourself in three words: Iconoclastic, idiosyncratic, sesquipedalian.
