‘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.
