Were you familiar with Little Britain before you got an opportunity to do the show?
A complete obsessed fan. I went over to London a couple times in the last few years and I saw this show. I could not believe how funny it was. I went and bought all the DVDs I could, brought it back to America, and handed it out to every human I met.
When did you first get to meet Matt and David?
At the Elton John concert at Madison Square Garden about a year ago. I was talking to Sharon Osbourne and I saw two guys waving to her. And I turned and said, "Is that the Little Britain guys?" She's like, "Yes they're good friends of mine, do you want to meet them?" Like, "Yes I do!" They were delightful, and I was telling them how much I admire them and how terrifically unique and funny and inventive they are. And that I actually have - in England they have a lot of products for sale - and I have the guy in the wheelchair with the glasses. I have that big stuffed thing in my office at home. And a lot of their different schwag stuff from the Little Britain show. I'm a huge fan. So when they called and asked me to do this, you know, my agent really wasn't familiar with it. She said, "You got a strange script, and it's sort of mean. It's about Weight Watchers, and they're making fun of you being gay and.." I said, "Is it Little Britain? Is it the Fatty Fighters? I'm totally doing it!" So, it was a thrill for me.
Do you have any favorite characters?
Oh my God, so many. I love, "I'm a lady, because I'm a lady!" I love that. I love, "You don't, no you don't, yes you do, no you don't, no you..." that, I love the teenager in in the pool, smoking a cigarette. I love the guys in the wheelchair. I love Marjorie from the Fatty Fighters. I just think every one of them is so unique and so memorable and, you know, Daffyd, "The Only Gay in the Village" is pretty much the funniest thing you'll ever see in your life.
