Vice: I had an aunt who lived in Cheam, where you grew up, and it is definitely not the kind of place that makes me laugh out loud when I think of it.

Muppet Show

Did you start doing one-liners right from the off when you began doing stand-up?

How did you come up with the idea of taking on the world record for jokes told in an hour?

How do you actually remember 499 jokes?

So the punport is like your version of Bob Monkhouse’s gag book?
