Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, I'm the sort of person who loves intelligent, funny, creative
women. I'm very thoughtful and I like people who are open minded
and interested in the world around them.
I love going to restaurants, museums, galleries, gigs, the cinema,
the theatre, to other countries travelling and also to lovely
parties (as long as there's a good selection of snacks - very
important). I perform stand up comedy but I only tend to go into
clubs or bars to perform.
I'm probably at my happiest when I am with people I care about and
having a really good laugh. Sounds simple, but there you go!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a stand up comedian. I also do extras work (I was in Harry
Potter for example - yes, I can tell you aren't impressed in any
way). I have taught comedy writing in universities, and have
written and worked on some programmes as well.
I've also recently been working on some spoof news reports with an
actor friend, which we have been promoting. We have worn a lot of
wigs in the process.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making jokes (well, I like to think so)
Knowing about geeky things (like what's going on in the world -
actually that's not a geeky thing, that's a basic requirement,
let's face it)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair, my sense of humour and generally that I'm basically nice.
That doesn't mean I'm dull by the way. It doesn't.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

answer, but to be fair it's an amazing book)

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
iPhone (and charger, obviously)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Jokes, books, art, culture, philosophy, politics, current affairs,
sport, the state of the nation, the meaning of life, why ITV is so
crap, why BBC 4 is so good, cats, chocolate, crisps, burgers,
pizzas, curries, Currys, panel shows, non-panel shows, lists, long
lists, even longer lists...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well it could be anything really. I could be at a do with friends,
or at the cinema, or at a gig, or just at home watching something
on the telly.
Do you have a 'typical Friday night'? If so, you're either a)
someone who works on a Friday night (fair enough), or b) probably a
bit repetitive (sorry).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like taking charge in the bedroom.

really well! Or, maybe just because you like couscous.
