What was nice about School of Comedy was that we started out as a completely unprofessional unit, so our mums were doing the costumes and our dads were driving us to rehearsals, so it was a real family environment. So it’s nice for them that they were part of it all right from the beginning. Now they can take a back seat and just watch the end product. They’ve always been a huge part of it, and supported me all the way. I know how lucky I am to have that constant support.
