It's a quieter life than being on the telly but no one's been snide in their book reviews like people can be in TV reviews. I'm an intellectual. I'd have been given a medal in France. It's still a struggle here. People used to think I was just a shouty comic but I was doing stuff about Sartre [Jean-Paul Sartre]. It seems easier to make a career out of comedy now than it was in the 1980s. Now, as a comic, if you're vaguely amusing you can go straight into TV, then you play the O2 and then everyone's sick of you.
I did six series for the BBC and that was enough. I've been writing for ten years, which is more challenging artistically.
Everyone I used to work with is still alive and can afford expensive lawyers. For me, the showbiz memoir is uninteresting - you want to tell people something they don't know about.
