Rarely Asked Questions – Holly Burn

Holly Burn

Given that Holly Burn's viral Victoria Beckham clip is all about asking questions we thought it was only fair that we asked Holly Burn some questions of our own. At the start of the week she knocked out a quick el cheapo clip sending up Victoria Beckham's recent video interview for Vogue and the nation's press promptly picked up on it. Not only that, but Beckham herself sportingly retweeted it too. It's a beautifully executed showcase for Burn's madcap sensibility. She has been doing the same sort of thing, though maybe with less restraint, on the circuit for the last few years. She does rather have a fondness for being over the top. We've printed her answers as she wrote them, complete with her very own capital letters. To find out what Burn is up to next go to Burn's website here or follow her on Twitter @burnholly. And click here to see that video. 

 

 

 

 

 

           1. What is the last thing you do before you go onstage (apart from check your flies, check for spinach between        teeth and check your knickers aren't sticking out of your skirt)?

PEOPLE NOT PAYING ATTENTION. PEOPLE ON THEIR PHONES

11. Alan Davies has said that comedians fall into two categories - golfers and self-harmers. The former just get on with life, the latter are tortured artists. Which are you – or do you think you fit into a third category?
