#Quote
1 In the 1960s there's an era of sexual liberation and then there's an appropriation, a commandeering of that idea of sexual liberation by people who don't really understand it, i.e. older, middle-aged men who are running television, who think, 'oh, people are having sex more than they used to be, and before marriage, and talking about sex, and we weren't allowed to do that in the '50s but we are now, so we'll do that', but their understanding of how to do it was very end-of-the-pier.
2 [on Jimmy Savile] Who would have thought that the groping shell-suited gargoyle could've posthumously destroyed the mood of an entire nation, at the same time as single-handedly nearly destroying the BBC? Although here's the thing about that. The BBC should be - and is - ashamed about the fact that various forms of sexual illegality seem to have been perpetrated on its premises. But I am of the opinion that what they should really be ashamed about is the fact that they employed someone who was so obviously creepy, weird and rubbish for so long.
3 I voted Labour, but to be honest I'm not very interested in party politics. I voted Labour because Glenda Jackson's my MP and because she was great on The Morecambe & Wise Show (1968) in 1974. And that is the real reason why I can't not vote for Glenda, because of that. She once said on a radio show that she thought that was the high point of her career. And I love her for that. And in a way, that's more important to me than what her politics are. I was brought up in a very left-wing household, I will always have an emotional attachment to voting Labour, but to be honest, you know, I thought a lot of them were a shower of fools as well.
4 I don't have any interest in stirring things up. I have an interest in writing about subjects that I want to be funny about. I'm not going to not write something if I am worried that people might get offended, but at the same time, I'm not deliberately setting out to offend anyone.
5 I have gone skiing with 'Peter Gabriel (I)'. Angus Deayton is a friend of mine and he knows 'Peter Gabriel (I)'. He invited me skiing a few years ago, and I might go skiing with 'Peter Gabriel (I)' again in a few weeks' time, in fact. That's quite exciting. Exciting for my 14-year-old self, anyway.
6 I don't really do live stand-up comedy anymore. I've lost interest in that. I tend primarily to see myself as a writer now. (Speaking in 2010)
7 We did 140 episodes of it and I felt that that was enough. I just didn't enjoy the football any more when I was doing the show. It felt too much like work. (On Fantasy Football League (1994))
8 When I first started doing stuff on TV, a lot of people thought I was Pakistani or Indian, because I'm dark and because Baddiel sounds like a non-English name. Indians used to come up to me and say: 'I'm so glad there's an Indian bloke on telly.'
9 I'm an atheist myself. But I am not interested in making people think that their faith is rubbish. I think it's good that people have faith. What I am interested in, however, is taking the piss out of the structures and the extremisms that grow up around that faith.
10 I really, really wanted to be a punk rocker. And then, at the start of 1977, my friend Dave played me Blood on the Rooftops, a song from the album Wind & Wuthering, by Genesis. Genesis! This was a time when, for a young teenager who was attempting to live his life by the rules laid down in NME and Sniffin' Glue, Genesis, along with Pink Floyd and Yes, represented everything that was dull, pretentious, overblown, middle-class and unacceptable about music before the year zero of punk. Trouble was, I really liked the song. Resistant though my ear was supposed to be to this particular quality, I thought it was beautiful. But I held on, fastened to the safety pin of self-denial, buying White Riot and New Rose and Peaches, until one day, possibly under cover of darkness, probably in disguise, I went to Our Price in Willesden Green and bought Nursery Cryme. And I was lost. Peter Gabriel had me at "I heard the old man tell his tale ". I didn't - and still don't - know why the changes of no consequence should pick up the reins from nowhere, but it suddenly became clear to me why I loved this band. They wrote fantastic songs.
11 I think that people are terrified about race and religion, especially issues surrounding Muslims and Jews, and when people are terrified, what they really should do is laugh.
12 I like Genesis - up to and including Wind and Wuthering in 1976. I don't like them ironically; I think many of their songs are genuinely beautiful, and would remain beautiful if stripped of all Moog bombast and played on acoustic guitar. A long time ago, I stopped finding this difficult to admit. In fact, I now rather pride myself on it, and feel irritated by the name checking of the band in recent attempts by ageing musical journalists to reintroduce progressive rock into the acceptable cultural canon, always freighted down with ironic smirking. Genesis were brilliant. There, I've said it.
13 [on the character played by Steve Coogan]: "Alan Partridge is gonna be that bloke who says the most offensive thing kind of that's on his mind but that's kind of true to him and real, but it's incredible that he's said it."
