Rude, but in a funny way

I'm Sorry I Said That

Q What is your act all about?

A The show was inspired by the idea that quite often people are horrified by what [co-comic] Justine [Smith] and I say. And that's in our real lives. Performing as comedians gives us great freedom to be able to say what we like, but there is still a perception that women shouldn't be too rude or swear. We do both. But in a funny way.

Q Why will Dunedin audiences enjoy it?

A Because Dunedinites are sophisticated and mouthy. Likeus.

Q What do you know about Dunedin?

A Its layout is exactly the same as Melbourne's, as the original town planner did both cities. I may well have made that up in my head.

Q What makes you laugh?

A People falling over. And being tickled.

• Irene Pink and Justine Smith perform in I'm Sorry I Said That at XII Below from tonight till Saturday.
