Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1 When asked for advice for younger comics: "Breathe! 'Cause if you're still breathing, you've still got a chance! That's the only advice I can offer because as for the rest... it's a nightmare!"
2 I started doing physical comedy, because I was like a moving target. You know what British audiences are like - 'he's shit, kill him!' My upbringing taught me to keep moving.

#Trademark
1 Creates music for shows himself, and usually performs his own song for an encore
2 Constantly apologizes during his stand-up routines
3 Sweat and energy - his stand-up routines are so manic that his suits last barely a couple of dates. Only stage props are a towel and occasionally a microphone stand.
