We’ve hit the 100-day mark of the UK’s coronavirus-induced lockdown; can you believe it? 100 days in and we still need comedy more than ever. But unsurprisingly, it’s still rather difficult to find something that’s actually damn funny right now. MoodyComedy is trying to remedy this.
What is the first thing you plan on doing once the lockdown is fully lifted?
My plan was going to be to go to my parents to see them and see how they are, and to get my Easter Eggs but since they lifted the last restrictions I’ve already done that. So now my plan is getting my haircut (I have it booked for the 4th) and then hopefully once they’ve opened every last thing in the country they’ll consider reopening comedy clubs at some point in the next five years, in which case it will be that. And for those wondering: it was a Cadbury’s Dairy Milk egg, and both my parents are well.
What’s your current lockdown binge watch?
My neighbours (just kidding in case they’re reading this). Succession! It’s been on my list for so long, and it’s absolutely amazing. I am obsessed with it. Which may become evident in the rest of this Q&A.
Has anything made you laugh recently?
Oh well funny you should ask! Matthew Macfadyen in Succession. It’s a hilarious performance. He was brilliant in The Quiz, but in Succession he just steals every scene. He would slot straight into Arrested Development.
How are you trying to keep sane at the moment?
I’m staying sane by keeping an eye on my neighbours, not sure what they’re all up to but they’re conspiring against me. I think it has something to do with some of them being aliens and some being secret government agents sent to spy on me. So watching them 24/7 is helping to keep me sane and having no negative impact on me whatsoever.
What thing would you like to draw our attention to right now?
My neighbours! Why do they keep turning lights on in different rooms at different times of the evening? Is it a code? Where do they go when they walk? Are they trying to lure me out of the house so the others can break in and read my diary or install cameras to spy on me? SEND HELP!
That and of course Succession.
