Hello All, Just a quick note to apologise to all the people who were offended by me ‘dedicating’ my award to Karen Matthews. For those of you who have enjoyed my comedy and seen my act over the last seven years you all would have got used to my tongue in cheek style and near the knuckle observations. Last night at the Comedy Awards was no exception, after being asked by a journalist why I hadn’t dedicated the award to anyone or said anything controversial in my speech. I said ‘it wasn’t really my thing to be controversial ‘ but in a flash of inspiration I said ‘I’ll dedicate it to Karen Matthews’. The journalists in the room burst out laughing aware that
my tongue couldn’t have been further in my cheek, I went on to say that she was ‘a gay icon’ and that ‘I would love to work with her’. Just to put the record straight I was being ironic, these aren’t my real sentiments obviously. So apologies to everyone, i am so sorry if you are offended I was taking the piss but if you’ve seen me before you’ll know that already. XXXX
