CB: How long have you been gigging in comedy?
LC: Probably since last January but properly probably for about 3 months.
CB: How would you describe your comedy?
LC: Musical. Wordy. Quite silly.
CB: Which comedians influence your comedy?
LC: I think lots. Flounders and Swan, Miller +Armstrong, Miles Jupp, Cardinal Burns, Frisky and Mannish, Louise Ford, Flight of the Conchords, Rob Delaney + Sharon Horgan and my pals Rebecca Humphries and Rob Carter all do things I really love.
CB: Did you always want to go into comedy?
LC: I think so. I’ve always liked telling silly stories when holding a guitar.
CB: How do you go about writing your material?
LC: I read things like Flashman, Monocle Magazine and the collected short stories of H. H. Monro and then have a long bath. I cycle and I find that coming down Holland Park Avenue just before you hit Shepherds Bush Roundabout is quite good for working out the musical bits.
CB: Do you gig as a comedy performer full time or is it more of a part-time hobby? If so, do you find that your main job influences your material?
LC: Sometimes there are moments that I stumble upon in the pursuit of capital gain that make me think for a while.
CB: What do you find the most enjoyable and frustrating parts of the comedy circuit?
LC: Willy and Bum jokes don’t really get me going. Everything else does though.
CB: What’s your favourite type of audience to perform to?
LC: Lovely mixed demographics with seemingly gentle temperaments in nice clothes.
CB: Have you been heckled a lot since you’ve started gigging? Do you enjoy being heckled? What’s the best heckle you’ve had?
LC: I mentioned that I went to Camden School for Girls and someone in the audience went ‘I went there too’ and then we had a brief chat about it afterwards which was nice.
CB: What advice would you give to new acts thinking of starting out in comedy?
LC: Be careful at roundabouts.
