I love live comedy. Favourite comedians include Josie Long, Tony Law and Claudia O'Doherty, and I go to the Edinburgh festival every year. I'm a regular at ACMS- google it or ask me about it!
I suppose I'm some kind of geek, and like Doctor Who probably more than is healthy. I also like pub quizzes, nerdy podcasts and University Challenge.
Forced to choose between chocolate or cheese, I'd definitely choose cheese.
I've been challenged on the above, so I shall elaborate: American cheese, whilst shite, is still better than American chocolate.
I am tall, Northern, and witty
I'm pretty good at doodling- it's not a particularly marketable skill, but it's there.
Also being funny (I hope) and pointless nerdy stuff like cryptic crosswords and answering the questions on University Challenge.
I also like comics (and think the term "graphic novel" is a piece of adolescent wankery for people who haven't grown out of their own embrassment). Alan Moore is wonderful at these, and Will Eisner.
Movies: Coen Brothers, Ealing comedies, Fight Club. I have a soft spot for old musicals. Eternal Sunshine, Juno, Little Miss Sunshine, Perseplois. Also, Twelve Angry Men, and it's easy to forget how great Citizen Kane is as a film. And Pixar- Up has me in tears every time, and I think Ratatouille is underrated. I saw Cactus Flower recently (60s film starring Goldie Hawn, Walter Matthau & Ingrid Bergman) and it was BRILLIANT. Watch it!
TV isn't on here, and I don't really watch it that much, because so much of it is crap. But when it's good, it can be wonderful- I'm a fan of Breaking Bad, and Doctor Who, as I've said, is possibly one of the best fictional ideas ever, however lacking the implementation can be at times. Old comedy series can be wonderful too- I'm a big Leonard Rossiter fan.
Music: Indie, i suppose. I like music with interesting lyrics, so Ben Folds, Pulp, Magnetic Fields, Belle & Sebastian, Amanda Palmer, that kind of thing. Definitely Emmy the Great.
I am also a big Stephen Sondheim geek. Like I say, I love clever & complex lyrics.
Food: I'm a big fan of cheese. Also hummus, curry, fish etc. Good bread. Olives. Vegetables- a good potato is a work of art, and cabbage is massively underrated. Thrilling stuff, I know.
I think too much in general; probably should have been a philosopher! I often find myself arguing about free will, especially when I meet people who are i) idiots and ii) economically right-wing, an unfortunate convergence if ever there was one.
