More new talent...should we be embarrassed?! It’s an Escape tradition that we ask our new recruits some fun but telling quickfire questions. So meet Andre Wilkinson, or Wilks as we've already affectionately called him! No judgement please, this is a safe place.

Last live concert 
Half Price. That is their name… They describe themselves as “drunk punk”. 

Dark or milk chocolate (white is just not an option sorry)
Milk Chocolate

Favourite holiday destination
Favourite I have been to is probably Paternoster in South Africa. Many people believe that the name, which means ‘Our Father’ in Latin, refers to prayers said by Catholic Portuguese seamen when they became shipwrecked. Also, my folks live there, so accommodation is always free!

Superhero power
Freeze time… so that I can get to all the things I want to try out! So many hobbies, so little time!

Pineapple on pizza?
I see no problem with it… While not my first choice of pizza, I do enjoy a slice of my wife’s when she orders it.

Most famous person you’ve met
Nelson Mandela. I was in choir at junior school and sang on stage at his inauguration party. He came around and met with all the kids before we went on stage. 

I have also been lucky enough to meet many personalities through the music scene, although their celebrity is debatable and could be swapped with infamy...

Favourite all-time movie
The Neverending Story. I can probably still quote a large portion of the film.

Favourite junk food
Burgers from The Dog’s Boll*cks (can I say that?!)

Coffee - black or white?
Depends how badly I need to wake up.

And finally, tell us something completely random about yourself (we won’t tell anyone. promise)
I am not only the funniest, but also the smartest comedian I know of. Sometimes I tell jokes that are so smart that people don’t get them… and don’t laugh.

I am also weirdly into collecting vintage chairs...
