More From Jack Dee
- "I tend not to trust people who live in very tidy houses. I know that on the surface there is nothing wrong with a person being well-ordered and disciplined. Nothing, except that it leaves the impression of that person having lived in the confines of a stark institution which, although he or she has long since left, remains within."
- "There were a few teachers who just did not like me because of my face. Once, I was told to stand in the corner until I cheered up. The attitude was, ‘Oh, for God’s sake, what’s the matter with him?’ But it’s just a natural expression."
- "Mmmm… the comedy that matters is the comedy you pull out of thin air. It’s a bit like when something funny has happened and you try to explain it to someone else and end up saying, ‘You had to be there.’"
