Of President Clinton he says: "He's a limitless low-life. The American people love him even though they know they couldn't trust him with their daughters."

He hates pomposity and hyposcrisy, he says. In 1991 he married his manager since 1973 Jyll Rosenfeld. It was she who kick-started his big-time career by suggesting he do a solo show. His odd choice of favourite comics is Bruce Forythe, Ted Rogers and Jerry Seinfeld.
