‘I’ve had two perms – I re­gret nei­ther. I think big fuzzy hair is gr8’

The fun­ni­est standup I’ve ever seen …

Brent Wein­bach. I saw him in Los An­ge­les at the Up­right Cit­i­zens Bri­gade in 2010 when I was do­ing a sum­mer in­tern­ship. He’s so ab­surd and fear­less. I re­mem­ber a bit where he was giv­ing au­di­ence mem­bers the most bizarre/best lap dance I have seen and it sent me into tears.

The fun­ni­est book I’ve ever read …

I only read de­press­ing books about mur­der­ers and other kinds of de­ranged crim­i­nals … so, I guess the fun­ni­est out of those would be Gone Girl.

The fun­ni­est per­son I know … Phil Burg­ers AKA Dr Brown.

play­ing a girl, which I think is a re­ally hard thing to achieve.

The fun­ni­est hair­style I’ve ever had … I’ve had two perms. I re­gret nei­ther. I think big fuzzy hair is gr8. The fun­ni­est dream I’ve ever had …

When I was very young, I had a re­cur­ring dream where the Wicked Witch of the West would turn my dad’s eye­brows green and he couldn’t wash it out. Scarred me for life.

The fun­ni­est thing that shouldn’t be funny … The con­cept of hell. The fun­ni­est word … BananaPants, an orig­i­nal com­pound word. Natalie Palamides: Nate is at Soho The­atre, W1, Tue to 1 Dec
