Company: Off The Rails Comedy Club, Saddleworth
I run comedy clubs at venues up and down the country in addition to hosting tours and supplying comedians to corporate events.
Off The Rails is now in it’s thirteenth year and pretty much sets the standard for independent comedy clubs. This makes me very happy.
What time of day do you work best? Morning or Evening? And why?
Definitely morning, but the job requires working both and, unfortunately, the bit in between
Do you spend more time in your office or shop or on the go?
The bulk of what I do is spent slaving over a hot laptop but there are plenty of meetings and, of course, the actual shows.
What do you love the most about what you do?
Deafening laughter, without a doubt.
Is there anything you dislike about what you do and your industry?
Hours, working weekends, the odd awkward customer.
Do you work in silence? Listen to music?
Radio 4 all the way.
Is the customer (client) always right?
Usually. Without customers we’re nothing but we can ‘out rude’ the occasional rude one.

Anyone over 6’2”.
