    • (Commenting on the fact that a lot of comedians working in the UK in the late 2000s are Irish)
      Graham: Irish comedians are just more conspicuous now. One thing that may explain it is the Comedy Cellar in Dublin, a small venue beneath a pub called the International. It's like a school. It's not like Jongleurs where you sit down and have dinner - it only seats 90 and there's no mike! Other comedians go and you have to impress them, you can't be lazy. It's like a greenhouse of comedy.
