Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Nathan Caton: Page 2 of 2

6. What do your parents/children (delete as applicable) think of your job?
At first my parents were sceptical of me being a comedian. But as the years have gone by and seen me on TV more and more and notice that I can pay my way, they're ok with it. Coincidence right?

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

Not having a social life. Instead I have a gig list.

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 think I'm a hard worker who seriously puts the graft in. Did I mention that I don't have a social life? 

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

None of your business and none of your business.

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

Luck is a factor. Not the most important factor but a little bit of luck always helps. I also believe that you can create your own luck. My favourite life quote is "the harder I work, the luckier I seem to get." 

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?

Can I be a bit of both? 

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

My favourite persons (plural) are Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael. Cowabunga!

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).

Always tidy. What kind of monster doesn't?!
