Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Ayesha Hazarika: Page 2 of 2

6. What do your parents/children (delete as applicable) think of your job?

It’s a cry for help until I go back to law school/marry a doctor.

7. What’s the worst thing about being a comedian?

People going “tell us a joke".

8. I think you are very good at what you do (that’s why I’m asking these questions). What do you think of you?

Work in progress. 

9. How much do you earn and how much would you like to earn?

I’m like the UK economy post Brexit. Heading into recession but trying to give the markets a sense of confidence about the whole thing

10. How important is luck in terms of career success – have you had lucky breaks?

I don’t think I’ve been that lucky but I’ve always hustled for mad gambles which have kind of paid off following a lot of hard work, prayer and therapy.

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?

Latter. Self harmer definitely. Always have the capacity to self sabotage and have a crisis. Especially when filing my tax return. 

12. Who is your favourite person ever and why – not including family or friends or other comedians?

Harriet Harman. We gossip, moan and laugh about politics on a regular basis. She helps keep me insane.

13. Do you keep your drawers tidy and if not why not? (this is to settle an argument with my girlfriend. If you've taken my side thank you in advance) 

Yes - as a distraction from doing life admin like my tax return.
