basket_mouthBasketmouth was asked to state what comedy has done for him and he has this to say:

Oh! There’s nothing! There’s nothing, man! Comedy has done everything for me. Comedy has given me a reason to be a better person, a reason to work hard, because making people laugh is my dream; it’s an accomplishment for me, and comedy has given me a reason to do all these things.

Comedy has given me a career, comedy has put food on my table at the same time.

So, comedy is my life, comedy is what I do, and comedy is me. I didn’t choose to be a comedian, comedy chose me and that’s the reason I cannot disengage myself from comedy.

It’s done everything. It’s done every single thing that I want. It’s even done more things than it’s done for a banker (Laughs). – Basketmouth
