Chopper vs our questionnaire

Heath Franklin as Chopper

Heath Franklin - Chopper's Harden the F*** Up, New Zealand!

1)       How did you get the name of your show this year?
A bag of scrabble tiles and a honey covered fist. It actually came out as Harden the Cufk Up but fate can be a moron sometimes.

2)       Tell us your favourite punchline
And so with his belly full of human flesh the duck slept contentedly for the first time in its life.

3)       What's been your best heckle?
No one has every dealt me a heckle that worried me too much. Once a really inebriated guy stood up and yelled out I hate your f*cking shoes before I had even spoken which put me on the back foot a bit.

4)       What was your response?
I thanked him for buying a ticket and had him thrown out. He paid such a high price to express himself, he didn't see ANY of the show. He should have waited til he'd seen some of it before making it obvious that he was a degenerate piece of sh*t.

5)       What's the craziest thing you've ever bought on TradeMe?
I try not to shop online because sometimes at 3 in the morning a Winston Churchill print one-piece pyjama jumpsuit seems like a necessity not a luxury.

6)       Aside from yourself, who would you kill to see at this year's festival - and why?
One thing people don't know is that a lot of the world's most infamous assassinations were committed by people who were lead to believe that would get them into a comedy gig. Lee harvey Oswald just wanted to see a Noel Coward show and he blew a President's brains out. That aside, I really like what Glenn Wool does, I've seen that guy tear a room apart. Rhys Darby would be great to
see too obviously, and I like Hannah Gadsby a lot.

7)       What was the last film you watched?
Mongol, the Genghis Khan story. That guy was a cranky dude. I would like to see Genghis Khan fight the Olsen twins.

8)       What was the one question you were glad you weren't asked on this questionnaire?
"Have you ever met the real Chopper?" - so bored with that one.

9)       What's the one question we should have asked?
What music are you listening too at the moment? I like to talk about music.
