Crook's Comedy Nightmare
The British Pirates Of The Caribbean star always knew he would make it as a stand-up comic, but his audiences weren't always sympathetic.
He says, "I spent periods on the dole (state benefits).
"For two or three years my only source of income was stand-up.
"I remember an early gig. The act before me had done a magic act using raw liver.
"The audience started chucking leftover offal at me and a pint glass smashed on the wall behind my head.
"That was really rough. It took me a week to get over it."
