Interview: Rarely Asked Questions - Dan Renton Skinner aka Angelos Epithemiou

Sonny and Cher. Laurel and Hardy. History is littered with double acts. And now there is Alex Lowe and Angelos Epithemiou, who are about to set out on their New Power Generation tour. Lowe is best known as radio phone-in loving OAP Barry from Watford. Burger van-owner Angelos is probably best known for keeping score in Shooting Stars and carrying a plastic shopping bag with him wherever he goes. Beyond The Joke has managed to persuade the man behind the plastic bag, Dan Renton Skinner, to chat to us. You will also know him from House of Fools and all sorts of other interesting acting projects – he popped up in the movie High Rise earlier this year. Anyway, have a read and then remember to buy tickets for the tour which starts on October 20. Dates and ticket info here. A London run has been added at the Soho Theatre from February 6 - 18, tickets here.

If it's Angelos I'm doing, then I stick my jaw out and try and trick myself into thinking that what I'm about to do on stage is normal and not really odd in any way. 

What irritates you?

The fact that when I pick up Heat magazine, I can't put it down. 

What is the most dangerous thing you have ever done?

I was a cycle courier in London for 6 years which was pretty dangerous, strictly speaking I shouldn't still be here. 

What is the most stupid thing you have ever done?

I've stood fully clothed in a working car wash in the middle of winter.
