Nina Conti Live: Dolly Mixtures

Comedienne Nina Conti has joked her infamous mask sketch at her gigs often results in her audience becoming "lurid and sexual"

Nina Conti turns audiences "lurid and sexual" at her gigs.

The comedienne - who performed live at Prince Harry's 30th birthday - joked the infamous mask sketch she does at her shows often results in some of her crowd turning into "monsters".

She exclusively told BANG showbiz: "People get very lurid and sexual quite easily, I promise that's not my fault! But often that's what happens when you put a mask on someone it actually unleashes a monster. I try for it not to go that way but on occasion is has!"

The 40-year-old star appears on stage with a variety of puppets at her gigs and the juiciest part of her show comes when audience members are invited on stage to wear a mask controlled by Nina, but she has vowed not to poke fun at any cleebrities.

She added: "The next show is 100 per cent mask work. But I tend not to comment on famous people, it's my thing I feel like it's freeloading. It's very interfering to take someone's personality and start saying things I guess.

"Someone would have to be very hateful for me to have to do that. No one has been hateful enough."

Nina - the daughter of actor Tim Conti - is rumoured to have made Prince Harry wear a mask while performing at his birthday and while she bases her show on real life characters, she insists her act is never insulting.

She explained: "It's quite flagrant it's all very jokey so it's not too secret".
