First things first, tell me about yourself? What do you do?
I am a Graphic Designer and avid comedy fan! I mainly run this site and twitter feed.
Where are you from?
Favourite comedies growing up?
Growing up I was into Alan Partridge radio shows on casette, Harry Enfield & Chums, The Fast Show, The League of Gentlemen, and The Office later on. Stand up wise I loved Jasper Carrott and Lee Evans (Evans not so much now).
What do you watch/listen to nowadays?
Recently I love Cardinal Burns, amazing series seriously funny pair of guys. Peter Serafenowicz, the Alan Partridge Mid Morning Matters is the best things I’ve seen, such detail and gets better on each view (much like ‘Bravo 2 Zero’), Ricky Gervais – particularly Extras (Darren Lamb, Barry from Eastenders are SO great).
Listening wise The Russell Brand Show, live and now all the podcasts are just gold. Matt Morgan and Trevor Lock (earlier shows) are just brilliant. If you like XFM / Ricky Gervais shows you’ll love these. Brand is restrained (because it’s radio) and is much funnier for it). Find the shows at the top!
Favourite quote from sitcom / stand up?
Can’t choose one… The Thick of It, Peep Show, Alan Partridge, Father Ted, Extras….
Stand up – I used to really like Frankie Boyle, but now Ricky Gervais (Obviously) & Jack Whitehall. I’ve seen loads live too (which is way better) including; Dara O’Briain, Alan Carr, Jimmy Carr, Jack Dee, Lee Evans and Sean Lock to mention a few.
Favourite comedy top 3 characters?
Alan Partridge / Father Ted Crilly / Blackadder / Richie Richard (Sorry that’s 4 – oh and Kryten. 5. Damn!)
Two lesbians probably, sisters. I’m just watching.
