Dianna Agron's You, Me and Charlie - Thomas James Gray

Dianna Agron
YOU, Me & Thomas James Gray Author:   ·  October 16th, 2012

Thomas James Gray is a gifted comedian. Watch the below & you’ll see what I mean. He agreed to a Q&A for YM&C, but I proposed a new kind of interview. I asked YOU to ask him questions and Tweet at him directly. Then Thomas picked his favorites to answer. Loved what you all came up with!

 

YOUR Questions

‏@__Batman_____: If you could go on a trip anywhere with friends and only a backpack, where would you go and what would you take?
TJG: I wouldn’t take any friends. Not cos I don’t have any (I’ve, like, over 6) but I’d not take anyone because I’d want to spend the holiday budget entirely on myself. I deserve it damn it. I suppose I’d just fill my backpack with said budget & see how far I got.

‏@skysplits13: Why did you want to be a comedian in the first place?
TJG: Watching the bloopers on sitcom DVDs.

@DiAgronArmy: What makes YOU laugh???
TJG: People hurting themselves & pulling silly faces. Delusion & confidence in the same person. Also, shows like Curb, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Office (UK & US) Scrubs, Alan Partridge. In terms of books, I love the Without Feathers collection by Woody Allen & Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome. But, obviously, there’s loads of other things like seeing a friend embarrassed or injuring himself in a funny way. Stuff like that.

@ana_cardenas: How did you find out you wanted to be a comedian?
TJG: Discovering I wanted to become a comedian was a gradual process that is still very much ongoing. It was number 11 on my list of things to do. I failed at the first 10.

@TyghTy: Do you have any philosophy prominently corresponding towards comedy or the likes?
TJG: No but I’ll make something up now. Laugh about what you know best. Which is yourself. Expose your own insecurities, particularly the ones you think others share. It seems to be a very hit & miss creative process so a bit of mild bravery & a thick skin is maybe required too.

@indazone23: Is there a comedian that inspires you or a favourite comedian?
TJG: Lots: Steve Coogan, Chris Morris, Armando Ianucci, Homer Simpson, Zach Braff, Steve Carell, Tim & Eric.

About The Author

Oh, isn't this always fun?? Ha! Well, let's see. I am a SF-bred girl who would live my entire life down the rabbit hole in a world of nonsense, but due to the low probability of me ever finding that damn hole, I use my vivid imagination every day and refuse to ever truly grow up. Not all the way! That wouldn't be fun! Why not embrace a life like Peter? I love what I do, I love to see a smile turn a smile turn a smile. Life is too short, too melancholy for some. I'd like to try to diffuse that as much as I can. I am only one, but together we are so much more. Hope you have fun here on YM&C. I've been having a grand time thus far!
