Three Fun Facts About Gra­ham

My Weekly - - Celebtiry -

Play­ing ladies: Gra­ham is not averse to a bit of on­stage cross­dress­ing. In 1992 he found fame as a stand-up co­me­dian by play­ing Mother Teresa of Cal­cutta at the Ed­in­burgh Fringe, and in 2009 per­formed in drag in the West End’s LaCageAuxFolles for three months. His shelves are groan­ing: Gra­ham has won eight BAFTA Awards as well as the 2017 Spe­cial Recog­ni­tion Award at the Na­tional Tele­vi­sion Awards. “I found that gen­uinely over­whelm­ing,” he says. “I don’t know what it means, but I think it was a way for the NTAs to give me an award while Ant and Dec are around, as they usu­ally win.” Ir­ish tastes: “I’m Ir­ish, so po­ta­toes are my go-to food,” says Gra­ham. “In Ir­ish restau­rants you get them cooked three ways with ev­ery meal. Mash, chips and any other way. My idea of heaven.”
