Happy Birthday to working class hero Kathy Burke. She's hilarious and an awesome actress. And hasn't forgotten her roots! She has no problem calling you a cunt if she thinks you're one haha. A real working class hero! Not a sell out like most other working class people who find fame. She was hilarious in Gimme Gimme Gimme and Kevin and Perry. And was brilliant as battered wife Valerie in the powerful masterpiece Nil By Mouth, directed by another working class hero, Gary Oldman. I love working class heroes because I will always be working class, no matter what happens in the future. Even if I became a billionaire, I would still swear (swearing is awesome) drink pints down the pub, dress the same, buy weed from the same dealer, shop in the same shops, eat the same takeaway food, would still never give one fuck about my looks or top design clothes or fancy cars. I would live in a nice flat somewhere because what's the point in living in a huge mansion if you live alone? I will always be working class and fucking proud of it! But anyway yeah, Happy Birthday to the awesome Kathy Burke. I love Kathy! #kathyburke #birthday #happybirthday #moviegeek #filmgeek #moviesaremylife #kevinandperry #nilbymouth #garyoldman #ilovemovies #actress #happybirthdaykathyburke #workingclass #stoner #dvdnerd #bluraynerd #horrorlover #gorehound #wwefan #workingclassandproud #workingclasshero #gimmegimmegimme
