Die Leute fragen mich immer, 'Was machst du am liebsten, Schauspielerei, Stand-Up, oder schreiben?'. Am meisten genieße ich, die Unterschiede meiner Tätigkeiten, dadurch lernt man ständig dazu. Ich halte mich nicht für besonders gut in irgendetwas. Ich bin glücklich, dass ich in all diesen Bereichen die Chance bekomme, zu versagen.
I grew up in a house where there was lots of teasing and language play and laughter; it was very important. When I was a teenager, you wouldn't go to a bar and find lots of televisions everywhere. People were talking. Talk was the mental fire you would gather around in the evening. It occupied a big part of your existence.
I'm really not big on nationalism, to be honest with you. I really don't think it gets people anywhere except near a pile of dead bodies. I'm Irish, yeah, but I don't need to get up on a soapbox about it.
I never thought I want to do anything, really, except not go to work properly and turn up at the same place every day and eat sandwiches in the same canteen, if I can possibly help it, as I don't think I'd be very good at it.
Maybe this is just me, but as time goes by, I'm more bewildered by modernity. It gets more unfathomable with every passing year.
