Cool Kids
I was chatting with the man who busks with a saxophone under the bridge on King’s Stables Road. I go past him every day. It’s not a heavy footfall down there. It’s an odd place to busk. He’s the kind of guy who goes, “No, I’m not doing this for money. I’m doing this for the love of busking. I don’t really want to get…” It’s just passing trade. I imagine it might be because under that bridge there’s quite a good echo, which makes him sound better than he is. But he is very cool.

Emergency Questions

Rob Auton

If you could take one item from any museum or art gallery – and you’re allowed to take it home with you – in the world, what would you take?

Probably The Hay Wain by Constable. Just because I go to – I go to the National Gallery quite a lot in London because you can go to the toilet. But also it’s got a really comfy sofa in front of The Hay Wain. And it’s, like, real old leather and you just sit there, yeah. It’s a great painting. *RH suggests that RA should take the sofa.* Yeah, I’ll have the sofa. Yeah. It’s between the sofa and the toilet.

What’s the least impressive thing you can spend a lot of money on?

Oh, I think a watch. I was looking at – because I’m doing the show all about time – I’ve been looking in all the watch windows. And there was a watch; it was probably – you know, someone in here’s probably got an expensive watch on – but this one, I think it was £42,800. That watch costs £42,773 more than mine. And, you know, I know people like – Have you got an expensive watch? *RH advises that he has an Apple Watch.* Well, that’s useful, isn’t it? Yeah, I tried to sell books after my show and someone paid with their watch yesterday. Do you tap on the [unclear] with your watch? You better watch out; you might crack your screen. *RH notes that some people are in a watch-of-the-month club.* I hope they don’t come to my show.

Lost Voice Guy

Have you ever tried to suck your own cock?

Of course. Why do you think I’ve got so many bumps and bruises on my head?

Have you ever seen a ghost?

Please, can you repeat yourself? *RH repeats the question.* Beans on toast. *RH notes that it’s good that this phrase is pre-recorded on LVG’s iPad, and asks what he would like for dinner.* Blow-job, please.
