Rob Brydon, 42, is best known for his role as the ill-treated but perennially chirpy Keith Barret. This Sunday, he will present the Sony Ericsson Empire movie awards

If I weren't talking to you right now I'd...

Probably be showing somebody from British Gas the leak in the cellar. We're having problems with our heating.

A phrase I use far too often is...

"What's for dinner?" or, lately, "Is the heating on?"

I wish people would take more notice of...

Manners. We need more civility in society.

A common misperception of me is...

That I'm not really Welsh. As if it's something that you would pretend to be.

I am not a politician but...

If I were, I would create a cleaner and more efficient public transport. At the moment, it is slow, filthy and extortionate.

I'm good at...

Impersonating Ronnie Corbett.

I'm very bad at...

The bobsleigh.

The ideal night out is...

Me in a bobsleigh with Ronnie Corbett.

In weak moments I...

Pull out of planned bobsleigh events.

You know me as a comedian but in truer life I'd have been...

A Shetland pony.

The best age to be is...

34 – you are old enough and young enough at the same time.
