Interview: Rarely Asked Questions: Hans Teeuwen: Page 2 of 2

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

Everybody is very proud.

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

It can feed your narcissism.

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?

I share your opinion.

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

I earn a lot, I'd like to earn more.

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

Meeting the right people is very helpful. 

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?

Probably I fall under the first category. 

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

Donald Duck, because he doesn't wear pants. 

13. Do you keep your drawers tidy and if not why not? (please think long and hard about this question, it's to settle an argument with my girlfriend. The future of our relationship could depend on your response).

I don't clean anything. My girlfriend does.
