Personal Quote:

It's a quieter life than being on the telly but no one's been snide in their book reviews like people can be in TV reviews. I'm an intellectual. I'd have been given a medal in France. It's still a struggle here. People used to think I was just a shouty comic but I was doing stuff about Sartre [Jean-Paul Sartre]. See more »

Trivia:

In 1995, he was awarded an Honorary Professorship, Thames Valley University. See more »
