I was hap­pi­est when … my chil­dren were born (and also the most ter­ri­fied). You wouldn’t know it but … I’m only 26cms tall. My most em­bar­rass­ing mo­ment … I was mak­ing love once … and an­other em­bar­rass­ing mo­ment was … oh that’s right, you only wanted one. The last time I cried was … see an­swer to ques­tion above. The last book I read was … quite good. The House of Lies by Ian Rankin. I love John

Re­bus, but then be­ing Scot­tish I have a soft spot for him. My favourite films are … Trad­ing Places, Pulp Fic­tion and most things by Richard Cur­tis. I’m a ro­man­tic at heart. I re­ally want to … have a more in­tel­lec­tual an­swer to the ques­tion above. My guilty plea­sure is … walk­ing around the house wear­ing my Ki­mono and cow­boy hat while singing There’s No Busi­ness Like Show­busi­ness. Life has taught me … if life gives you lemons, learn to jug­gle. I’m about to … do an­other re­hearsal for my new Ade­laide Fringe Fes­ti­val show. My first job was … as a po­di­a­trist. My most mem­o­rable work-re­lated mo­ment is … re­ceiv­ing the Life­time Achieve­ment Award at last year’s Scot­tish Com­edy Awards in Ed­in­burgh. What I en­joy most about my work is … still try­ing to get my head around ac­tu­ally be­ing paid to make peo­ple laugh.

Scot­tish-born for­mer Tas­ma­nian Kevin Kopfstein brings his brand new show to Jok­ers Com­edy Club (20 New Town Rd, New Town) on Wednesday, Jan­uary 30. Tick­ets are $23.30 pre-sale or $25 at the door. jok­er­scom­
