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.
