Jonathan Pie has told talKRADIO the day he wins an Oscar will be the moment nuclear armageddon occurs - and he really wants that Oscar.
Comedian Tom Walker, better known as fictional news reporter Jonathan Pie, spoke to Penny Smith about how an unlikely figure has actually hugely helped his career.
He told Penny: "I have been very fortunate in the world falling apart around my ears."
Donald Trump, he said, "did more for my career than I’ve ever done for my career. Same with Brexit really."
He said therefore "I am on trajectory to win an Oscar but I will get that Oscar the moment nuclear armageddon occurs.
"That seems to be the trajectory at the minute. The more successful I do, the worse the world gets so bring on the Oscar really. I want an Oscar."
