“I fictionalised a certain viewpoint and put it into the mouth of this character”

“You can have an opinion, an informed opinion but what you don’t have is lived experience’

“We live in a bit more of a sensitive age”

“Is comedy not that place where we preserve the extremes?”

“Context and intent are really important around jokes”

“The director general by his actions over the last week has done more damage to the BBC than Gary Lineker has done with one tweet”
