Even in self-isolation, we can learn something new every day.

For some, this might be a new musical instrument, or language.

For others, it could be a different type of exercise, or even meeting their elderly neighbour who they hadn't had a chance to speak to yet (albeit, from a safe distance, when you are buying their shopping for them).

For Larry Dean, now is the time to learn the difference between a lime and a kiwi.

"My sister is self-isolating with me and its the first time that my fruit bowl has ever seen any fruit in it" he told The Glasgow Times.

"I picked a piece up the other day and asked her, 'What the hell is this?' It was actually a lime. I was thinking for a minute it was a hairless kiwi. What an idiot."

Larry returned home to Glasgow early from his tour in Australia when the news of Coronavirus hit, and has been helping to shop for his family.

"I had to come home as both my parents have underlying health conditions, as well as my Aunty and Uncle. I was the only one who can go to get their shopping for them" explained Larry.

"It really has been a learning curve for me, though. I never realised how many middle class foods my parents ate. I had to FaceTime my dad from Morrisons the other day and get him to explain to me where I'd find a sultana" he said.

"It was like a twisted, boring version of the Crystal Maze".

Difficult as it may be, Larry is even able to deliver foods and catch up with family members while maintaining a safe distance.

"I've been talking to my parents through their windows, as if they've committed a crime or something and I'm only able to speak to them through a glass screen" he said.

"My aunt lives in a flat, so I’ve got to speak to them from the upstairs window. That's a bit different - speaking to my aunt is like a weird rendition of 'Don't Cry For Me Argentina', and when my uncle comes to the window I feel like I'm about to be blessed by the Pope".

Reminding us that there is always light to be found among darkness, Larry has been using his time during the lockdown to provide comic relief.

Uploading clips of his stand up to YouTube for the enjoyment of the general public, Larry has been spending time focusing on making TikTok videos and writing a script for when the pandemic is declared over.

It's something everyone is thinking about: with all this time on our hands, will there be a boom in creative output, and will that output be coronavirus themed?

"I am writing a script but I don't think it will be about coronavirus" said Larry.

"I don't really like writing about things that will inevitably age badly, and I think when this is all over, people will not be bothered about hearing about coronavirus again" he added.

After months of coronavirus news, it will be a welcome relief when it becomes the butt of a joke, rather than the crux of a headline.

As people all over the world find their jobs interrupted and circumstances dramatically change, what does it mean to a comedian to press pause on daily activities?

"I won't be doing any live gigs, because I can't imagine anything worse than watching myself make other people laugh - especially when I can't hear them think I'm funny" joked Larry.

"It was a bit rubbish to come back from Australia, especially because everyone has balconies over there and it must be nice to self-isolate in the sun. But being pale and skinny, everyone thought I had it anyway."

"But what I've noticed in Glasgow is that we look out for each other more.

"In my close, people wrote that they were healthy and would collect shopping for anyone self- isolating.

"Glasgow is basically a village populated with one million people. It's a great thing that we know and help each other, even if everyone knows your business.
