Favorite Quotes from Jonathan Ross

A common mistake is going too quick too soon, it’s like riding a bike. People get nervous about making a mistake but it’s not that difficult to learn as long as they don’t get too stuck in their own head.” – Jonathan Ross 

“The longer the rope, the more challenging because you have to generate more force, you want to see that move travel all the way down to that anchor point. Another mistake, Jonathan Ross added, is pulling the ropes too tight.” – Jonathan Ross 

“My love affair with comics is more important to me than my love of films, or my work in TV, or just about anything outside my family. You’re hardwired for it, if you fall in love with comics when you’re 11. And I think if there’s one good thing I can maybe achieve with – with ‘my celebrity’, it’s to try to broaden the horizons and widen the readership of this particular entertainment which I adore and which is somewhat belittled and denigrated and ignored. I just want to see comics getting a fair critical chance.” – Jonathan Ross 

“My talk show is not an interview show as such, which is why I’m always bemused when critics say the interview wasn’t very good. And I think, but I’m not doing an interview! What I’m trying to do is make a comedy show. And that, trust me, is a fuck of a lot harder.” – Jonathan Ross 

“I’m in the position now, where really I don’t have to work anymore. I’m very blessed in that respect. Financially, I wouldn’t have to work again if I didn’t want to. I’d have to sell a few things, but I wouldn’t have to work again.” – Jonathan Ross
