Quickfire interview with Nick Doody

Nick Doody Nick Doody

How would you describe your style of comedy?

‘God, I don’t know. I seem to get described as “topical” when I haven’t mentioned current affairs and “intelligent” when everything I’ve said has been completely stupid.’

What’s the best/worst thing about being a comedian?

‘Gradually realising that your lifelong assumption of, “If this doesn’t work out, I could just become a teacher,” may no longer be viable. That is both the best, and the worst, thing.’

What subject wouldn’t you joke about?

‘“Jeremy Kyle”. I’ve never seen it so I don’t feel qualified.’

What’s your favourite children’s joke?

‘Oh, so many. I have a soft spot for: “What swings through the jungle and is made of almonds? Tarzipan”.’
