In the meantime, the comedian had a new rule: she no longer brought animals to the stage. Until recently, her goldfish Viktor was part of the scene, but it didn’t end well. “I haven’t done that animal any favor. Always those spots, always those noises. Because of not having a driver’s license, I often had to take a train for my shows. And he went in a bucket. I think he really died of stress. I still I feel some guilt about it.”
