The best moment of the night: all the ladies reacting to Hunderby’s win for Best Sitcom at the 2012 British Comedy Awards.
I really love collaborating with Julia Davis. There are very few people who I click with in the same way, and she was at a time in her life when she wasn’t sure how to find her way through the comedy world… and I was at the same point. So we started to improvise together and gradually we began to build up a little collection of characters who were quite strange but we loved performing. Through Julia I met Baby Cow, because I was a bit without a production company, and Baby Cow have brought me into the fold.
The first thing that springs to mind about Julia [Davis], if I was going to describe her, is ‘pastry lover.’ I don’t think I know anyone who consumes high-class pastry with as much aplomb and class as Julia. I mean, she really knows how to eat tart.
