When I'm not addressing that shocking state of affairs, I find myself becoming responsible for the fact that there are fewer woman comics than men. Why is this? I don't know.
For my first show last week I made the mistake of eating a Kit-Kat and peanuts in the limo on the way. Renault has lent us a monstrously wonderful car so it feels like we are crawling at 20 mph. By the time we arrived I was white with sickness and bloated with the nuts. They thought I was a young farmer rehearsing for the annual festival. Being double- booked with Reeves and Mortimer in Wolverhampton but in a different room (well I assume there'll be a partition of some kind) means I will get six in, and they'll get the usual 6,000. You can have more fun with six keen audience members than 6,000 . . . bums on seats. Who am I trying to kid?
