I don't like men who blow-dry their hair. If you are a man and you blow-dry your hair, then I don't like you and that's all there is to it. -- Jack Dee

I had a longing for ritual, something I could cling to, a routine to make me feel well and contented. I hoped that reading Bible commentaries and theological critiques would nudge me closer to some kind of absolute that I could hold up as a torch to light my way. -- Jack Dee

There were a few teachers who just did not like me because of my face. Once, I was told to stand in the corner until I cheered up. The attitude was, 'Oh, for God's sake, what's the matter with him?' But it's just a natural expression. -- Jack Dee

And people are intrigued if I really am as grumpy in real life. People feel a bit let down if I'm laughing or smiling. -- Jack Dee

In my local newspaper, they had this advert: 'please look after your neighbours in the cold weather'. I live next door to this 84-year-old woman, and do you know, not once has she come round to see if I'm all right. The lazy cow hasn't even taken her milk in for a fortnight. -- Jack Dee

The jokes are great but what really matters for a comedian is his performance, his whole attitude, and the laughs that he gets between the jokes rather than on top of the jokes. -- Jack Dee
Jack Dee Quotes : pic 000537757
The good thing about 'Have I Got News For You' is it's a compact show but it still gives everyone space to breathe, and everyone always gets a chance to say something if they want to. It's a very difficult show to dominate, and guests who come on and dominate always fall foul. -- Jack Dee

I'm not really part of any group or clique or gang because that's always been my nature. -- Jack Dee
Jack Dee Quotes : pic 000609879

Jack Dee Quotes : pic 000657097
I don't think anyone's particularly conscious of thinking suits are the thing, but when you see a comedian on stage in jeans and a t-shirt it doesn't matter how good they are - it always looks like amateur hour when they walk onto the stage. -- Jack Dee
Jack Dee Quotes : pic 000716093
The book is called 'Thanks for Nothing' and it's really the story of how I got into comedy and traces back every strand in my life that is relevant to that story. It's kind of an autobiography but isn't, as it stops about 25 years ago. It goes right up to the first time I do stand up. -- Jack Dee
Jack Dee Quotes : pic 000799949
I was on various anti-depressants, but not for long - I didn't function very well on them. I felt sort of flattened out. -- Jack Dee
Jack Dee Quotes : pic 000998401
Mmmm ... the comedy that matters is the comedy you pull out of thin air. It's a bit like when something funny has happened and you try to explain it to someone else and end up saying, 'You had to be there.' -- Jack Dee

I love mixing with comedians when I'm working with them, but when I'm not I don't feel the need to hang around with them. -- Jack Dee
Jack Dee Quotes : pic 001048420
I tried to be as thorough as I can, but there is a responsibility that we all have, especially with something like AA which is dependant on anonymity. Once you start banging on about it the whole time, you are potentially damaging the whole concept of it. -- Jack Dee
Jack Dee Quotes : pic 001096071
One Saturday in 1984, I walked into my first AA meeting. I went regularly for six years and only stopped when I came to realize my underlying problem was not genuine alcoholism, but depression. -- Jack Dee
Jack Dee Quotes : pic 001149712
I'm just part of a tradition of people who aren't pleased. I would never think anyone else who has the same attitude was getting it from me. I'd just think they're ... sensible. -- Jack Dee
Jack Dee Quotes : pic 001201580
I think it is more a cautiousness that protects me from enthusiasm about things. I tend not to get excited. People perceive it as a scowl, which is fair enough. -- Jack Dee
Jack Dee Quotes : pic 001204603
Depression is something that has always figured in my life but now I'm dealing with it. I wish I'd done this years ago because it's been really helpful. -- Jack Dee
Jack Dee Quotes : pic 001236264
Possibly I am difficult to live with, but I don't bring my work home much. I'm either busy or not busy. And I don't work from home. I have an office here which has a white wall. No view. I did try working in a room with a view but it was too interesting. Too distracting. -- Jack Dee

Jack Dee Quotes : pic 001637471
Comedy and tragedy are two sides of the same coin. A talent in one area might also lead to a predisposition in the other. -- Jack Dee

In many ways, not fitting in has been a comedic asset and a comedic resource. -- Jack Dee
Jack Dee Quotes : pic 001680802
I have had issues with depression all my life, and it's probably true to say there was a tendency towards it even when I was very young, during my schooldays. There was often - and this is quite common with comics - a sense of not feeling as if I belonged anywhere. -- Jack Dee

Jack Dee Quotes : pic 001757109
But I like going to church. If you've been brought up in the Church of England, it feels like visiting an elderly relative. And I think it's important that part of the kids' education is knowing about the Bible. -- Jack Dee
