My self-summary
Hello there!

I love intelligent, funny and 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 - this bit is very important).

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
I am currently Senior Research Analyst at a research company.

I used to be a full-time stand up comedian, and did other things alongside this, such as writing and working on TV programmes, teaching comedy writing in universities and extras work (in films, such as Harry Potter, and also in adverts).
I’m really good at
Making jokes
Dissolving arguments
Being quite geeky ('quite', rather than 'very'... I think)
Making lists
Er...
...that's it.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my sense of humour and my big furry hat.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
'Nineteen Eighty-Four' (an unoriginal answer, but nevertheless an amazing book)
'Stalingrad' by Antony Beevor (harrowing and sad)
'Moab Is My Washpot', 'The Fry Chronicles' and 'Paperweight' by Stephen Fry
'I, Partridge: We Need To Talk About Alan'
and
Works by Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens (God rest his sou... God rest his.... Er, Rest In Peace).

Moonrise Kingdom (beautifully shot and quirky Wes Anderson film)
Minority Report
Burn After Reading
Good Night and Good Luck
and
Senna (A fantastic, emotional, cinematic documentary that you don't need to be a Formula 1 fan to appreciate)

Peep Show
Not Going Out
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Imagine
House of Cards
Charlie Brooker's Screen/Weekly Wipe(s)
The News (yeah, that's right 'The News'!)
and
Unreported World (which reports on things people don't hear about, but should)

Manic Street Preachers
Two Door Cinema Club
Hot Chip
Daughter
Metronomy
Mansun
The xx
and
Classical Music

Indian
Chinese
Pizza
Thai
Couscous (obviously)
Pizza
Hummus
Halloumi
Pizza
Bread dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar (poncy, but there you go)
...and...
circular, flattened bread, with cheese, tomato and various toppings
The six things I could never do without
Family
Close friends
iPhone (and charger, obviously)
Brain
Car
Thoughts
I spend a lot of time thinking about
books, art, comedy, culture, philosophy, politics, current affairs, sport, the state of the nation, the meaning of life, why ITV is so crap, why BBC Four 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
Well it could be anything really. I could be out with friends, or in a restaurant, or seeing family, or at the cinema, or just at home watching something on the telly, or whatever.

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 like to take the lead in the bedroom, if you know what I mean.
You should message me if
...you've liked what you've read and think we would get on really, really well. Or, maybe just because you like couscous.
