For me, everything has always been an accident.

I’m busy and that’s the way I like it – when I have too much downtime I get into trouble.

My life has been, I suppose, the most incredible series of highs and lows.

I have a stepladder. It’s a very nice stepladder but it’s sad that I never knew my real ladder.

It’s evolve or die, really, you have to evolve, you have to move on otherwise it just becomes stagnant.

Prison widens your circle of friends. In my stand-up, I can now talk about things that no one else has the right to touch.

What’s amazing is that I’m recognized all over the world through ‘Red Dwarf.’ British fans are exceptional, but the American fans are something else. Some of them fly 500 miles to stand in line for three hours, just to meet me, then when they do they collapse. It makes you feel like a rock star!

There was never any career plan. When ‘Red Dwarf’ started I thought we were doing a curious little sitcom on BBC2, I didn’t think I was becoming an actor. I didn’t see that 21 years later I’d still be talking about it, let alone filming a new one. For me everything’s always been an accident.
