What sort of voice should we read your answers in?
In a Borat accent. My wife! Very nice!

Are you worried about how you'll come across in print?
Well, now I am. Why would you say that? I'm freaking out now.

Describe your show in 10 words or less:
I don't know what the show is about, LOL.

Is there somewhere we can see your work online? If not, why?
Someone has uploaded pictures of my feet to a celebrity feet website I'm also on LinkedIn.

What does your mum think of what you do?
She's always been very supportive of it. She's been coming to my gigs since I first started when I was about 15, which was great because I always had a ride home from the show.

Eight minutes into your show, all going well, what should be happening?
I'll be wearing rollerskates and might be partially unclothed, it depends on how I feel on the night.

Where are you usually when ideas or jokes come to you?
Usually on the bus on the way to the gig, when I suddenly realise I have no material.

What's more important to have as a comedian, youth or wisdom? Discuss.
Stand-ups get better with age, so I would say wisdom. Although youth is as important since comedy is always changing, and it's the younger wave of comedians who often bring that innovation. So maybe a healthy mix of both! Ugh, this answer isn't funny at all, sorry.

Who's your comedy hero, and why?
Steve Martin, because he's funny and incredibly good looking.
