Growing up, I couldn’t cease watching The Simpsons. I first noticed it after I was seven after I went to go to my cousin at uncle Gary’s home. He has this stunning cottage within the Cotswolds, a really good place, however whenever you’re a child, it was essentially the most boring place on earth as a result of he didn’t have a working TV. Fortunately, my cousin had simply purchased a VHS participant that he managed to hook as much as an previous display screen, and he confirmed me the way it labored with a tape of the Simpsons.
He performed the episode the place Homer and Ned acquired married in Las Vegas, and I used to be hooked from that second on. I simply discovered it so humorous, and I beloved Homer particularly. I couldn’t cease doing the impressions of the characters, and I purchased all the VHS collection of it I might discover.
When it was on TV, I wouldn’t miss it. Each single day I’d come dwelling from college, have my dinner early and watch it. Now that it’s all on Disney+, I usually rewatch my favorite episodes.
I nonetheless assume Homer and Ned getting married in Vegas is certainly one of my favourites and as I grew to like Bart as I went into my teenage years, I grew to become so obsessive about the present, I even needed my dad and mom to alter my identify to Bart at one level.
I’m such a fan that I’ve acquired a tattoo of Bart’s face on my leg. There’s an episode the place he drinks the tremendous squishy, and I used to be going to get that, however then I believed I ought to simply do the define of the basic Bart face. It’s certainly one of my most up-to-date tattoos out of the 20 or in order that I’ve.
The present has been a continuing in my life – it’s all the time been there for me, it’s my consolation and the place I realized a lot humour. The Simpsons, Pals and the flicks of Jim Carrey had been the three issues that actually formed my childhood.
Being a visitor voice on the Simpsons is the No 1 factor I’d like to do. The opposite day, my colleagues at Capital stunned me with an interview with Nancy Cartwright, who’s the voice of Bart Simpson, and I used to be so starstruck. She was phenomenal, giving us bits of Bart’s voice and Nelson and Martin. To say that I’ve interviewed Bart is simply essentially the most insane factor.
Apart from The Simpsons, Friends helped me to develop up. There’s a number of grownup humour in there that I used to be uncovered to, even after I was actually younger. Me, my sister and my mum would watch it collectively, and we will need to have seen each episode not less than 3 times by now – we are able to quote all of it. My dad hates Pals; he by no means used to say why, he simply doesn’t appear to get it.
My favorite pal is Ross, although I’m most likely extra like Chandler, with the unhealthy jokes. Interviewing certainly one of their solid members is the subsequent factor on my wishlist.
