It can't be easy being famous. Sure, you receive the adulation of fans wherever you go but there are certain times where you'd probably prefer to be alone. Like when you're getting changed, for example.

This very situation happened to Irish comedian Dara O'Briain who has taken to Twitter to tell the tale. As you would imagine, Dara was a little bit peeved when 'a guy from Dublin' appeared in his dressing room after a gig while he was in a state of undress.

Implying that he reacted like any other normal human would, Dara explains: 'Big hello the guy from Dublin who blagged his way into my dressing room in Eastbourne tonight, while I was in my pants, in order to get a selfie; and is probably telling somebody somewhere right now how I’m actually a lot less friendly off-stage.'

Life lesson: If you barge in on a comedian while they are getting dressed, they probably won't be as much craic as they are on stage.
