Emergency Questions

Where do you get your crazy ideas from?

Stuff that I just see about.

Would you rather date a man who was a 6-foot tall penis with a face like Mark Reckless or a man who instead of having a penis had a tiny man growing out of there?

*RH begins the question and mentions the 6-foot tall penis.* Stop talking. That’s a big tick from me. What’s the next question? *RH completed the question.* No, the man in place of the penis. Talking? Can talk? I can chat things through with said man? Hmmm. And can grip? He can grip me? Huh. Complains when you’ve got your clothes on? And what’s the other one? I’ll take the one grafted onto my groin. *RH corrects TK’s understanding of the question.* Oh, this is who I’m dating? Okay. Do we know anything else about these people? I’ll take the penis.

Would you rather date a woman who was a 6-foot tall vulva, or a woman who instead of having a vagina had another tiny woman in her place?

Oh, okay. Tell me more about the ladt in the burrow. She’s independent. Have the press got hold of this? Do we get hassled by the press? Okay, I’ll go for burrow lady. Do you cut this sort of stuff out?

Have you ever been stuck in a lift?

That is a genuinely brilliant question. Don’t think I have.

Which celebrity have you been uncoolest in the company of?

Oh probably… Look, Mike Atherton. Really uncool. Followed him across a park. Went to the same pub where he was drinking. He won’t know any of this, of course. Sat near him. We were both at the same book event, but our careers were, you know, not exactly tracking one another’s. I was sat about as far away as I am from you now, but not with him. Heard most of his conversation. He was talking to the chap who wrote Bounce, Matthew Syed. I would have done anything to be friends with those two.

What’s the worst cheese that you’d still be prepared to eat?

A really, really nice brie. Never dip below that. No, my favourite at the moment is Cheshire cheese. Yeah, I know. I’m not saying it’s the perfect cheese.

What is it like being *guest*?

It’s, uh, you know… It is what it is, you know. We are where we are. I don’t mind it, actually.

What was the most deluded thing you thought of yourself as a child?

Oh, well I definitely – I think there’s a term for it, isn’t there? Where you think you’re the only person. Yeah, I definitely think I had that when I was little. What is that term? *David Frew supplies the term “solipsistic.”*

Which UK comedian would you like to see run the United Kingdom?

That’s a great question. Um… Maybe – Who would be quite good? I wouldn’t mind seeing Jennifer Saunders have a crack at it. Well, she’s very nice, isn’t she? She’s probably intelligent, I would say. Yes, I would say Jennifer Saunders.


This is TK’s third appearance.

RH reveals that, at the time of recording, Flowers by Miley Cyrus is PH’s favourite song.

TK asks RH which fictional character he would like to interview. RH selects Amy Pond of Doctor Who.

At time mark 19:50, TK reads a poem from his book Chapters.

At time mark 25:30, TK and RH perform a reading of a script written by RH, wherein TK plays a magical, flute-playing monkey.

The dating a woman question is framed as the tiny woman living in a burrow where the vagina would be.

RH reveals that he was once stuck in a lift with Adam Tandy.
