I've always had live audiences.
With 1,000-seater venues, rather than 5,000-seaters, there are richer opportunities for sucking the audience in.
I had a very happy childhood, happy teenage years and I was famous by the time I was 22. A charmed life.
Something that has been important to me is never to repeat myself, never to go back.
I don't have moments of weakness. I'm Rik Mayall.
