The trouble with most comedians who try to do satire is that they are essentially brash, noisy and indelicate people who have to use a sledge hammer to smash a butterfly.
I never thought of myself in comedy at all… I loved going to the theatre and seeing people wearing beautiful clothes come down the staircase and start to dance.
