Laugh track

What music do you come on to an why?

I strut onstage to a cover version of The Final Countdown by The Toy Dolls. It is all played on kazoos. Everybody that has ever heard it has said it is really annoying and that I shouldn't use it. That's why I'm using it. Ray Peacock, Underbelly Clover , 21:25

The Big Ask

What's the saddest thing you've ever done alone in a faraway town between gigs?

The answer for everyone is the same. Stayed in my room and masturbated. The coolest is organised a day go-karting for everyone playing the Glee and Jongleurs in Cardiff. Leaving Marcus Brigstocke to remark: 'If tragedy befalls this afternoon the headline will read, "Circuit tragically loses some of it's most mediocre comedians".'

What is your favourite motorway service station?

Beaconsfield - that bad boy has the lot. KFC or veggie burritos depending on how the gig went.

What is the worst lie you've ever told an audience?

'You've been great! Goodnigh'
