Simon McKinney - A Bit of a Yarn

1)       How did you get the name of your show this year?
I thought of the 'yarn' pun at first, and then realised it was fine to leave out the other half of the pun and just describe what the show is: A Bit Of A Yarn.

2)       Tell us your favourite punch line
Bills Bills Bills.

3)       What's been your best heckle?
"I'm from Germany and come on say it: we have no sense of humour. Come on...."

4)       What was your response?
"This is the only time I've ever heard an audience member heckle...themselves."

5)       What's the craziest thing you've ever bought on TradeMe?
Craziest? Nothing crazy, just a card adaptor and a hi def camera. Maybe I should get crazy on it.

6)       Aside from yourself, who would you kill to see at this year's festival - and why?
I would kill to see Janey Godley, and perhaps Dylan Moran. 

7)       What was the last film you watched?
Entrapment. It was sitting there, and I hadn't ever seen it. I had to see why it was so quickly forgotten. Some things you can't un-see.

8)       What was the one question you were glad you weren't asked on this questionnaire?
Who would you kill to see Janey Godley, and perhaps Dylan Moran?

9)       What's the one question we should have asked?
What's your favourite drink and how can I send it to you?
