Sharon Horgan's quotes

  • Comedians... they're different from actors. There's more ego there. They create the whole thing, I guess, so they're more precious.
  • At 27 or so I thought, you know, I actually do really want to make money and have a proper life, and I don't want to be a loser. I know! I'll go to university and get a proper degree and maybe get a job in media... I went and did an English degree.
  • You feel you can pretend to be young until you're 50, but after that, what happens and how do you approach it?
  • I always, always want to make people laugh. In every situation. Even when it's inappropriate.
  • I think that's important to women in comedy, that we get a lot of the good lines and you're not just the girlfriend or the sister.
  • I never used to see anything on TV where the man was in the weaker position. It was always the female showing emotion, breaking down, being emotionally torn apart by men.
  • I'll cry anywhere because I can do it quite subtly. Walking, that's a good time to have a cry.
  • Things change when you get to 40. I'm embarrassed even that I'm going through it. In a very morbid way, at 40 you become aware of how long you've been on Earth and you start to question what you're going to use the remaining time doing.
  • Any big televised event that starts at the crack of dawn is worth getting up for. I've done it all my life: big boxing matches, royal weddings, even TV-A.M.'s inaugural episode was enjoyed in pyjamas in my house.
  • I was the kid who liked making other people laugh, so maybe the comedy came before the acting.
  • The thing is, I love a celebrity interview. Doesn't matter how big or how small. It could be Hillary Clinton or the guy who made it to the third round of 'Popstars,' I'll read it.
  • No matter how many frustrations come along, or how many problems arise, I never lose the feeling of how lucky I am. I'm so pleased to be doing a job that makes me laugh every day. I'm aware that it's a huge privilege.
  • There are lots of actors, and you need a way to stand out. Writing comedy sketches was a way of doing that.
  • You've only got a short shelf-life as an actor, and I want to make the most of it while I can.
  • Hackney gets a bit of a bad rap, but it's the only place I've ever lived that felt like a community. I know my neighbours.
  • Personally, my twenties were a complete waste of time. Professionally, I hope some good came of them.
  • I love Sutton House in Clapton, a beautiful example of Tudor architecture.
  • I'm a sheep when it comes to opinions; I will change my mind and jump on the bandwagon.
  • Spending way too long worrying about what people think about me is a bad habit.
  • If you're not the brightest or if you're not great at sports, or if you're not artistic, then you've got to find a way to make your mark; otherwise you're just this tiny little insignificant dot. I didn't want to be insignificant, so I made people laugh.
  • I'm a massive scaredy cat. I'm scared of being in a fast car, I'm scared of being on a rollercoaster, I would never go skiing, I would never do anything that had the possibility of endangering my life in any way. I should get some therapy, really.
  • I never felt like I had to rebel against my convent upbringing, because it was comparatively regular.
  • I've never for a second felt like my job has been more of a struggle because I'm a woman.
  • Comedy and drama are less ageist media for women than stuff like light entertainment. But in TV or film, women have to be more pleasing on the eye than men.
  • I'm the person who will go to a wedding and switch the place cards around because I don't want to sit next to someone I don't know, because I'm so bad at chatting to strangers.
