“Making a bed is the most soul-destroying thing ever! I’m five foot two with short arms and legs and it can take me an hour and a half sometimes. I even have to stop for a cigarette halfway through!”
“I talk about my time on a cruise ship, my days as a Bollywood dancer in India – they’re all my favourite stories anyway so if anyone gives me a chance and will listen then I’m happy to talk!
“My readers and listeners are really nice people, nerdy, neurotic people just like me so I think that is what I’m looking forward to the most when I come back to the UK.”
“Aussies like their comedy dirty so while I was over there my set got dirtier and dirtier and dirtier! Then I did the same set in London and they sat staring at me like what the hell is she talking about?”
I look back and think that I’ve made hundreds of thousands of people laugh and what a wonderful gift is that to have and, in return, what a wonderful gift they have given back to me in their laughter.
