Coming soon

Mike Loder of Southside Comedy takes a test

Mike Loder - Southside Comedy

1)       How did you get the name of your show this year?
We went with last year's one and then added 'Returns'. Genius really.

2)       Tell us your favourite punchline
Indian man walks into a dairy - buys it! This was the first joke of the new milenium. Government has STILL yet to errect a statue of me.

3)       What's been your best heckle?
I was speaking to a school drama class about standup. I was asked if my job made me quick of mind. I was very hung over from a comedy fest do the night before and was a second slow in responding. Enough time for one kid to say "Apparently not". Brilliant.

4)       What was your response?
I laughed. Then paid other kids to beat him.

5)       What's the craziest thing you've ever bought on TradeMe?
Nothing that extreme... But I nearly sold an iceberg.

6)       Aside from yourself, who would you kill to see at this year's festival - and why?
The idiot who tagged my fence.  Slowly. Man that would be a Youtube hit.

7)       What was the last film you watched?
'Rec'. Spanish horror. Very nice. Everyone in the room was screaming except for my friend Julian who just asked why all the zombies had really clean undies.

8)       What was the one question you were glad you weren't asked on this questionnaire?
Anything involving maths.

9)       What's the one question we should have asked?
How do you feel about winning the Fred award for the third year running?
