Cool Kids
I was hanging around with all these nerds – look at them. They are the people who paid to see this. Skye Brewer is the only one who looks like a normal human being. The rest of them – I’m not even sure about Skye.

Guest Best Known
For appearing on 50 Funniest Moments of 2013. He did so well that they asked him back for The 50 Funniest Moments of 2014, but he wasn’t as good on that so he didn’t come back for The 50 Funniest Moments of 2015.

Emergency Questions

Have you ever seen a ghost?

No, still no ghost. Still snake eyes on the ghost front.

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?

Marcel Duchamp’s urinal [The Fountain]. Because I think – I like it because it’s also got a practical function. I can both have an objet d’art and also a urinal in my house. *RH asks NK in which room he would keep it.* I’ll be honest with you, Rich. I’m spending a lot of time in my house. There’s a lot of cricket on at the moment. I wouldn’t mind having a fully plumbed urinal in the corner of my living room. I wouldn’t mind that. I wouldn’t hate that at all.

If you could have a hand made of ham or an armpit that dispensed sun cream, which would you prefer?

I would say I would prefer the armpit that dispenses sun cream. Because – here’s the thing – I always forget sunscreen. Because I have nature’s sunscreen: melanin. And until I went to Kenya I didn’t think it was possible for me to get sunburnt. I genuinely thought it wasn’t possible for me to get sunburnt. And then I was doing the travel show that I did with Joel Dommett and I said to him – Like, it was really – We were – It’s the equatorial sun. Like, the sun in Kenya is not fucking around. And after about, like, half-an-hour of us being out in the sun I said to Joel, “I think I’ve got eczema.” And he was like, “No, that’s sunburn.” Like… It did make me feel – I understand now why white people are so angry. It just makes a lot of sense to me. Because externally it feels like it’s all going very well for you, but when I had sunburn I was like, “Get ’em out. Send ’em back. SO yeah, I would like the… Whereas, you know, I always have ham. I always know I need ham. So I always have ham here. So I’m never short of ham.


Recorded at the Clapham Grand in South London. Due to COVID-19/coronavirus the audience watched online, rather than in-theatre.

This is NK’s third appearance.

Social distancing is being practiced at this live recording.

RH takes a poll among the online audience members as to who would prefer a ham hand or an armpit that dispenses sun cream.
