The funniest thing

The comedian, actor and writer on the things that make him laugh the most

The funniest sketch I’ve ever seen …

At university – brag! – I would quote SNL instead of developing a personality of my own. Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen’s Garth and Kat is so silly and so wonderful.

The funniest book I’ve ever read …

My housemate and I picked up a very budget erotic story at Oval book exchange to read to one another. A particular highlight is when the protagonist “plunged with unerring accuracy”.

The funniest heckle I’ve ever had …

Someone walking out of an Edinburgh show while I was doing a slow-motion walk montage in a plunging black jumpsuit. What’s funny is that I’m actually not over it.

The funniest item of clothing I’ve ever owned …

I single-handedly propped up River Island’s Aztec Print phase circa 2011. I thought every piece was a timeless capsule-wardrobe item and invested heavily.

The funniest meal I’ve ever eaten …

My friend and I decided to practise cooking for ourselves pre-university. We thought “Chinese Five Spice” sounded worldly and chic so made overcooked noodles with just Chinese Five Spice as a flavour.

The funniest hairstyle I’ve ever had …

In 2010, I was both desperate to dye my hair and terrified that someone would know I had done it, so I dyed it an identical colour to my natural shade. Shout out to Nice ’N Easy Perfect Ten in ash blond!

The funniest dream I’ve ever had …

This is a direct quote from the notes section of my phone, 12.12.2016: “Dreamed Gigi Hadid kidnapped me. Then I kidnapped her. Phoebe came”. Make of that what you will.

The funniest number …

1066: because I find it mad that everyone knows it as a date when I think Hastings was not that interesting a battle? HUGE claim.

The funniest word …

Colourful, because it’s what teachers put in my report instead of “seems gay”.
