for more than ten minutes without wanting to kill me.
- Jo Brand

which I didn't at the beginning.
- Jo Brand

it would have a nice mixture of different topics and
it also takes in the fact that I've had two children recently.

when I watched a tape of it,
that my husband taped for me and I never watched it again after that.

One of the guys that used to run it -
for some reason I've no idea why he used to call me
the Sea Monster and I was just looking around for a
name and thought that'll do.
That lasted for a couple of years probably.
- Jo Brand

It's a video release as well so I have to be perfectly honest and go,
probably not specifically for DVD, but there are extra
bits on it that aren't on anything else,
so as exciting as that sounds.
- Jo Brand

I made a supreme effort not to do that thing that parents do,
which is to bore people without children to death by
going on and on about how funny their children are,
so there's none of that hopefully.
- Jo Brand

Again, with two small children it's incredibly hard
to commit yourself to anything because you're just
getting interested in it and someone comes along and
goes I want Thomas The Tank Engine on,
and screams the place down until you put it on.
- Jo Brand

I had always fancied a go at the comedy and when it
started to go reasonably well and the opportunity arose
for me to move into it full time,
I just couldn't turn it down.
I just took the risk, and I just wanted to see if it
would work and thankfully it did.
- Jo Brand

What they did was to make a pilot and it may well go
to series at the next festival but I don't have any news on that.
It's already been on Paramount actually,
but as it's on Paramount it'll probably be on several more times...
hopefully.
- Jo Brand

was man hating and now is just a bit more cuddly.
- Jo Brand

are of themselves just incredibly funny whether they are male or female.

but our hate is turning our own days
and nights into a hellish turmoil.
