Alexei Sayle's quotes

  • At least Thatcher was insane. I think that Blair's insane and sanctimonious.
  • It seems easier to make a career out of comedy now than it was in the 1980s. Now, as a comic, if you're vaguely amusing you can go straight into TV, then you play the O2 and then everyone's sick of you.
  • I did six series for the BBC and that was enough. I've been writing for ten years, which is more challenging artistically.
  • Everyone I used to work with is still alive and can afford expensive lawyers. For me, the showbiz memoir is uninteresting - you want to tell people something they don't know about.
  • [on Ben Elton] We all felt with Ben that what motivated him primarily was popularity and power. But the problem with pursuing that popularity, I think, for him, is that it can never make you happy.
  • Israel is the Jimmy Savile of nation states. It clearly doesn't care about damaging the lives of children.
  • I like a laugh.
  • Recently one of my friends decided to become a psychotherapist, so we all rallied round to help. We all went mad.
  • [on Sting] He said to me, "You're really funny, aren't you?" And I said, "Yeah".
  • I'm in that situation where music's left me. Once they stopped selling CDs I gave up really. I don't know how to download really.
  • [on "Blue" by Joni Mitchell] That album is just pure poetry really.
  • One of the few things Top Gear (2002) was never accused of was being insufficiently Marxist.
  • Cacking up your own house is a British Obsession.
  • We're like a really great disease. We're like the Jehovah's Witnesses of the Universe. There is Life out there, but it's hiding, because they don't want to meet us.
  • It was when I heard The Goons that I realised Comedy didn't have to be funny. It could be more like jazz: a load of wank.
  • Every time someone goes mad in Britain, the Freud Family gets 5p.
  • I learned the lesson that, even after the revolution, cool, handsome and confident is always going to beat weird-looking and needy
  • All you get from a Public School, right: 1 you get a top job and 2 you get an interest in perverse sexual practices.
  • Being an only child was like taking an extraordinarily long train trip. You had to keep finding ways to pass the time.
  • I found working in an office that a tribal mentality developed where no-one cared how they behaved.
  • I always seem to want the ones who don't want me. Like Archbishop Desmond Tutu. He said we could be friends and go rollerskating.
  • Ah, John, he's the intelligent one. He's in the Police Force.
  • People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs
  • [Dogcatcher Compilation] There can be no Alienation, and therefore no Mental Illness, in the Soviet Union.
  • Successful writers aren't inventive at all. They just have really interesting friends!
  • What have I been doing between series? Well, I've been doing a lot of staring off into the middle distance, rocking backwards and forwards while humming.
  • My parents were both Communists, and they told me that religion was the opium of the people. Which made opium a bit of a surprise when I tried it!
  • When I was young, I was very heavily into drug abuse. I used to run into Boots and shout insults at bottles of paracetamol.
  • [Thatcher] had a Messianic sense of her own rightness.
