After appearances on Mock The Week, Comedy Central at the Comedy Store, Stand Up For The Week and now Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Andi Osho is now one of live comedy’s most popular rising stars.
In this quick-fire interview Andi discusses George Lamb, The Apprentice and hoodies getting their comeuppance.
You’ve popped up in EastEnders a few times now. You killed Archie didn’t you?
Yeah, so what I killed Archie. He had it coming. I’ve been a nurse four times on EastEnders. I must have had a trustworthy face. I haven’t heard from them for a while, my face must have changed.
What was the funniest thing you found whilst trawling the Internet for your ‘Stand Up For The Week’ appearances?
I loved the hoody kicking down the wall. As he kicks the wall the sections above collapse on his leg. It’s horribly violent but sooo funny. Especially when you hear him whimper “help me….” It was one of those clips that you just watch over and over again and see more details each time.
When was the last time you laughed ‘til you nearly peed?
I was watching Michael McIntyre’s “Hello, Wembley” recently and there’s this bit he does about flying Ryan Air which had me in stitches.
What would you do to make it onto The Apprentice?
OMG I’d be a terrible Apprentice. I’d be like, come on Lord Shug. Why don’t we all relax and have a lovely holiday in the Seychelles? Have a Lockets, you sound hoarse.
What’s your earliest childhood memory?
This place is cold.
What superpower would you most like to have?
The ability to grant and revoke super powers. I would be the most powerful person in the world… mwahahaha. The question is, would I use my powers for good or evil?? (Good. I’d feel awful if anything bad happened because of me)
What would the title of your autobiography be?
‘Don’t Worry About Buying This Autobiography. There’ll Be At Least Three More Before I’m 60.’
What would be on your Come Dine With Me menu?
George Lamb… Oh that’s not what you meant is it. OK, scallops to start, steak for main, something fruity for dessert… George Lamb. Have I understood the game?
Finish the sentence: ‘The best thing about being a stand-up is…’
…when someone in the audience makes the rest of the crowd laugh. It’s an all round win/win that’s a lovely, rare, unique moment.
