when you were sick or we may have met in a deli - I hang around near the cottage cheese. I’m here to explain, what Grumbling Mustard means and to clear up many other issues besides for the confused, the frightened and the lonely all over the US.
A big THANK YOU to everyone who submitted questions and a small one to those who didn't. I'm off to begin the Grumbling Mustard Tour here in the US starting... Today. Better Hurry.
Everybody's home seems to have a distinct smell, not necessarily bad, just different. Nobody can smell their own home, though, as they are used to it. What do you think your home smells like and why?
My home smells of 1941 Chateau d’Yquem and Pringles mingled beguilingly with yak
Black Books was my absolute favourite sitcom. Any chance of another sitcom type show in the future?
I’m writing about 3 pilots for television and I hope to get something out before too long. There’s such a shortage of good television these days.
Hi Dylan, I'm a huge fan of your work.
My question is, when are you going to start cycling on the road? You are a fucking menace on the pavements around Bruntsfield?
I cycle on the roads at night between 3 and 5am (not Wednesdays)
Hi Dylan, huge fan! What is your favourite memory of Black Books?
I think the rehearsal room just before we taped the episode, and we all knew we had a good one in the bag. Watching Bill and Tamsin work was always a pleasure.
Turning down ‘Titanic’, no way was I going to let him draw me naked.
Hi Mr. Moran, I love everything you do and have spent a considerable amount of time trying to convince my friends to watch your stuff so we can have more things to talk about. My question is - do you put your pants on like everybody else?
Don’t be ridiculous, my staff hold my pants while I am lowered into them.
is there any new project you with pegg, frost and wright? do you all joke about this everytime you see each other? thanks and love
They are talented guys and they will always be busy. I have a couple of situations going on right now, including a peanut spillage in my hotel room.
Are their any plans for another stand up special? I love your work :)
Yes we’re talking about doing something, possibly here in the US. Once I get together. I mean ‘It’. I mean once I get ‘It’ and ‘Together’ together.
No. I do sometimes think about what might have happened to the characters 20 years on. I thought Manny would be quite settled and successful, Fran would not have changed, and Bernard would be dead, or at least auditioning for that kind of role.
You came to Bulgaria in February 2016 are there any plans for a second run to the not so middle east?
I and my entire extended family are moving to Bulgaria. We love the humidity and bananas.
At one of your stand up shows, you said vegetarians who go to dinner parties should find their own dinner in the garden 😂 What are your thoughts on vegans?!?!
Vegans are allowed. But they are not allowed to talk about their pretendy cheese. Or anything else. They also have to do chores, like milk the yak and make sausages.
What kind of Cake should I bring to you washington DC's event?
A cooling cake with a fan inside
I support all of them, they’re all making tremendous efforts. They should be allowed to concentrate on their work and not be bothered by television cameras, or people.
The best way to answer it is for you to see the show but its partly about how your life and the world appears to you when you are the last person up at home
I’ll give you a different answer tomorrow but I remember really liking an American Author called Betsy Byars who wrote terrific little book called the ‘18th Emergency’
Can't wait to see you perform in St. Louis, Missouri on October 8th. Please do not cancel the show! The media has been blowing our current situation out of proportion. What is the worst job you have ever had? I heard you didn't like working for the florist, but surely that wasn't the worst.
I’m looking forward to St. Louis and hope the situation gets better for everyone quickly. I’ve been pretty lucky with work.
