Prison widens your circle of friends. In my stand-up, I can now talk about things that no one else has the right to touch.
I have a stepladder. It's a very nice stepladder but it's sad that I never knew my real ladder.
It's not supposed to be easy, if it's easy, it's no good, that's the way I look at it.
What's amazing is that I'm recognized all over the world through 'Red Dwarf.' British fans are exceptional, but the American fans are something else. Some of them fly 500 miles to stand in line for three hours, just to meet me, then when they do they collapse. It makes you feel like a rock star!
My life has been, I suppose, the most incredible series of highs and lows.
