60 Second stand–up: Sara Pascoe
We caught up with the laugh-inducing comedian, author and actress Sara Pascoe, star of Campus, Twenty Twelve and W1A, for 60 seconds of laugh filled stand-up.
What's the best part of your current tour or set?
I tell a story that I pretend is from the apocryphal Bible about when Moses goes to Paris.
Have you found any parts of the country to be funnier than others?
There’s a wonderful sense of humour in Essex. People tend to use comedy to deflate other people, so you’re not allowed to get up yourself.
Do you have any funny tales about a time you bombed on stage?
I’ve been in pubs that don’t have microphones, so I’ve had to stand right next to people’s tables when they’re having a drink in their local. They don’t know it’s meant to be happening, so they just talk louder.
Listen to our interview with Sara Pascoe:
What's your most memorable heckle experience?
I once got called the c-word by a man dressed as a bottle of ketchup.
What's your favourite one liner?
Milton Jones: “I discovered DNA. I wasn’t going to call it that, but when I went to the conference I said, ‘I’ve mapped the human genome, D-NA!’ ”
If you were a fly on a wall, whose wall would you be on?
Oooh. It would have to be the Houses of Parliament canteen, to see who’s actually friends with whom.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
Tiny time hops, just so I could not have said something, or not have got as drunk the night before.
