Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON STAGE -

What themes will you be ad­dress­ing in the new show?

Grow­ing older. We all strug­gle with it. As Dave Allen once said, ‘I en­joy get­ting older. I have to be­cause there’s no choice’. When you hit your for­ties you un­der­stand life bet­ter, but at the same time your body is more prone to fail. So you have to find a way of join­ing your re­ceived wis­dom with phys­i­cal prow­ess. A lot of men who hit 40 try to do things that make them feel more alive be­cause they want to prove them­selves. That’s why I did Splash! I wanted to do some­thing out of the box, stretch my courage and prove I was still a young man at heart even though my bits were drop­ping off.


What else will you be dis­cussing? Re­la­tion­ships. I think I’ve maybe come to un­der­stand the se­cret to them now. I know when a woman gets mar­ried, she has to learn to for­give her man from day one. Be­cause men are idiots. Be­fore they be­come con­scious hu­man be­ings, that is. They can take years do­ing the wrong thing be­fore they learn to ad­just their be­hav­iour. So women need pa­tience and for­give­ness… and a voice to ar­tic­u­late what the man is do­ing that is wrong in a way a man can hear Oth­er­wise it’s over.
