Personal QuotesEdit

  • (on his relationship with Nancy Sorrell). 'This one will last. Marriage is to be decided. I'd like to settle down. And more kids? There's always the possibility I might become Picasso and spawn one at 91.'
  • It's very difficult to get anything on TV at the moment. I've got great ideas, but it seems like it's a lot cheaper and easier to stick a camera through someone's window. There's no need to pay for any professionals.
  • Vic Reeves is really just a character on TV. He's an exaggerated version of me, I suppose. He's more brusque and self-confident. He's a big, blustery character. He's just a character who's a bit of an idiot, which I quite like playing.
  • We paved the way for Noel Edmonds - he definitely copied us.
  • I don't really think it's my job to analyze my comedy.
  • I've always wanted to do something a bit harder than satirical comedy - that's a piece of piss.[2]
