Andy Saunders is one of the featured comedians at Lismore Laughs in March.

So just what makes this funny man tick?

My favourite dance move is the… conterpretive, cross between interpretive and contemporary, it’s hard to not watch.

The song I like to play when no-one is listening is… Spider Pig, artist Homer Simpson, so relaxing.

My guilty secret is… dancing conterpretively to Spider Pig.

When I was a kid I thought… I could never make up a new dance called Conterpretive.

My mother always said… stop doing that stupid dance.

My perfect day involves… laughing.

The best thing about me is… seriously don’t take anything free, no wait, don’t take anything seriously but take anything free, that’s right.

The worst thing about me is… I don’t take anything seriously.

When I drive I… wave to everyone with two hands at a time.

I worry about… my kids.

I am frightened of… my kids.

One day I’d like to… open my own conterpretive dance studio.

If I could change the life of one person… I would make Donald Trump a more natural colour, he looks ridiculous, I can’t take him seriously but see answer to question 8.

When I offend people I… make sure I have my offensive eyebrows on because it’s hard to offend anyone with normal eyebrows. My offensive eyebrows involve an upwards angle on the outside with a steep decline towards the middle of my face; it’s very effective.

I get a real thrill when… I use my offensive eyebrows. It’s hard to maintain for a long time, takes a lot of energy; they call it ‘extreme eye-browing’.

When you come to see me at Lismore Laughs you will not be on the receiving end of my offensive eyebrows. You will have the pleasure of seeing my funny, weird, surprised, engaging, interactive, friendly, ridiculous, enjoying-life, happy, entertaining, stoked and last but not least can’t-wait eyebrows. I know that’s a lot of eyebrow action, people of Lismore, but you are worth it. Might slip a couple more in if ya play ya cards right.

Andy Saunders performs his show Asms and Isms for Lismore Laughs, NORPA at Lismore City Hall Saturday 11 March, 7.30pm. $25–47. Bookings 1300 066 772 or norpa.org.au.
