Q:Mr. your work, love your passion, love you! My question...Do you like animals more than people?
A: I like nice people as much as animals.

Q:Do you think you'll answer all these questions?
A: Yes. I mean no. Damn I've wasted time!

A: Sadly no. And I'd need bigger curtains these days.

Q:What would be your advice to someone who wants to become a writer in comedy?

Q:You got a US stand up show planned anytime soon?
A: I'd love to do another US tour. My live work keeps getting pushed back whenever a TV or film project comes along.

Q: Favourite character in The Office?
A: Gareth. I based him on a guy I went to school with. That's why he seems like an adolesecent. Kev is based on his best friend. There were two of them in my class. Imagine that.

Q: So when are you going vegan :-)?
A:Gradually. But I like cheese too much. I'm weak.

Q:How old were you when you decided that you were an atheist?
A: 8

Q:Where do you see yourself in 10 years from now?
A:In the hot seat, of course.

Q:Have you ever stepped barefoot in your cat's vomit?
A: Yes, as she usually does it in the middle of the night right by the bed.

Q: You were once fat and now you're less fat. Elaborate.
A: I used to consume more calories than I burned. Then I started to consume less calories than I burned. Science. :)

A:Would you buy it?

Q:Best book you read?

A: Love it. Smart, liberal, cold.

Q: Are you hardcore atheist or have you got an agnostic side?A: The two are not mutually exclusive. One concerns itself with belief, the other with knowledge.     We are all technically agnostic. Believers don't know but choose to believe there is a god. Atheists don't know so choose to not believe there is a god.

Q: Can you play that accordion yet?
A: It depends what you mean by play.

Q: Come to Dallas! !!
A:I've been to San Antonio. I assume it's similar, right?

I lived just across town from him but this is much better. He was diagnosed with dementia. I love that goofball  Also, I just completed my training as a hospice volunteer. During the breaks in the all day training, we all talked about "Derek" around the table; it touched us all so deeply  Thanks again!

A:I'm not.

Q: What do you imagine Eric Hitchmo looks like?

  1. What do you think about while you poop?

  2. Just started watching An Idiot Abroad and of course hilarious. Just thought of a funny situation for Karl, send him to a family home like mine, loud Italian family in America with family business drama everyday and my super naughty, spoiled kids who piss me and my husband off daily. Plus we have 5 different pets which in know Karl loves (lol ). Just think he would freak out in this type of normal but not normal for him situation like mine. All American Family. Would be so funny. And is it weird I have a strange attraction to him? Cause I think so :)

    If the world is made of subatomic vibrating particles beating helpless to an eternal ritham of past events and all of the world is purely electrons in a sporadic dance.
