Q+A | More on Mark...

Question #1. Why are you so passionate about entertaining children?

Kids have such honest and intense reactions to what they’re experiencing. A group of kids laughing is about ten times the volume of an adult audience laughing so if you add parents enjoying the experience of sharing this with their kids into the mix, you really get a magical atmosphere.

Question #2. Take us through a typical Mr Snotbottom day... how does it look?

No day is ever really the same.

Sometimes I could be singing Disney songs at the top of my lungs as I drive 8 hours across the country to perform in a small regional town.

Sometimes I could be sitting in a café writing one of my ‘Busy Bodies’ podcast scripts while the barista watches me confused as I laugh at my own jokes.

Sometimes I’m in an airport holding up the line as I deal with my mountains of over-sized baggage.

Sometimes I’m at home almost falling asleep on my computer in utter boredom because of hours and hours of admin I have to do.

Sometimes I ride across the land having adventures on my giant magical slug Chachi.*

*Not all of these are true

Question #3. Who inspires your comedy? Who are your heroes?

I’m inspired by comedy that has a universal appeal like Mr Bean, The Muppets plus a dash of absurdism from the likes of Monty Python, The Mighty Boosh, Vic Reeves.

Question #4. What's your creative process? How do you come up with jokes?

There’s no real ‘recipe’ or ‘process’ it’s just about showing up to the computer or the page and write, write, write, write, write.

Then edit, edit, edit and coffee, coffee, coffee.

Most of the ideas don’t make it to the stage or the podcast.

For me it's like mining; mostly hours of digging away, before you get any gold.

Question #5. When did you start performing comedy?

I started performing as a standup for adults and in children’s theatre shows around 2002.

In around 2010 I began to combine the two.

Actually, a friend asked me to perform stand-up at their kids' party not knowing I had experience as a kids' performer.

So I put together a little routine based on some kids' magic tricks I knew and then a few days before the party she told me her kid had told all his friends that I was coming to his house to make fart jokes.

So, in a bit of a panic, I rewrote everything making all my jokes much stinkier and sillier and the character Mr Snotbottom was born!

Question #6. When did you start performing comedy?

In some ways, they’re easier, because they’re more open-minded and willing to suspend all belief and go on a journey with you.

If you get them and they get you then it’s an incredibly joyous, raucous, giddy time.

But it’s harder because as any parent knows if you give them too much of a leash they walk all over you!

So I find I actually have to pull back more than I’d like.

Sometimes if I hold a silly face for that little bit too long, it’s like I’ve given them permission to think I’m a complete buffoon and they go bonkers to the point I can’t control them and it ruins the show.

You have to be so careful if you want to both keep them laughing and respecting you at the same time.

Most people think I just go out there on stage and make a bunch of fart jokes but it’s way more complicated than that. Sort of. LOL!
