Personal Quotes (5)

The game of comedy is all about owning the stage, and from a physical point of view, it's beneficial that I am a larger man. From my lumbering presence alone, I can't really help 'but' dominate the stage.
[on being referred to a middle-aged, 2006] "I get that a lot, but I'm only 34, for f***'s sake! But then, I've had that all my life; I'm used to it. I've always looked older than I am, like everybody's dad. When I was nine, I looked eleven, and so on. I've never been ID'd in bars - never. Once, I based an entire show on me looking older than I was. I got the audience to guess my age: the average turned out to be 37. I was 29 at the time."
I'm what you'd call ethnically Catholic. Don't believe in God, still hate Rangers...
[on Elton John's role writing the score for stage musical Billy Elliot] Elton sees a little bit of himself in Billy.
Twitter is really good for example... 'Cause it's allowed up to 40 000 people to contact me directly, and tell me I look like Gru from Despicable Me (2010).
