Emergency Questions

Where do you think Richard of York should be buried?

So, they want him to go to York, right? Oh, is he still here? I did a gig, uh… What year was he found? 2014, 2015? 2012? I did a gig – it was in a hotel. And the idea was the pay was that you got to stay in the hotel. And the audience met in the lobby, and then they went to a different room. And each room had, like, an act. And me and my friend Matt Highton did a thing where we went to Nando’s earlier that day, took the bones from our meal. And we tried to make a skeleton of a man. And then we laid him out in a drawer at this Premiere Inn or whatever. And then, so, you know, we’re doing – The idea was that we just found a skeleton. And the room stank. Because we’d washed the bones in the sink but all of that chicken fat and all that was just clogging up the sink. […]

If Alfie Boe could go into a chrysalis and change into anything he wanted, what do you think Alfie Boe would emerge from the chrysalis as?

I don’t know why, I’m thinking Arnold Schwarzenegger. I don’t know why. It just came into my head. Because Alfie Boe looks after himself. He’s quite fit, but I reckon he’s going, I could be bigger. He looks up to Arnie. You know the film – what’s the Arnie film? […] Pumping Iron, yeah. […] In Pumping Iron, right, I had a personal trainer who went, “If you watch that film, um, what they dont show is that for three quarters of the day he rests. And that’s the most important thing with bodybuilding. Like, all you see in that film is him pumping iron.


This is JK’s fourth appearance.

Recorded at the Y Theatre as part of the Leicester Comedy Festival.

RH reveals that he once lived at 160 Leicester Road, Loughborough.

Despite having appeared on the podcast four times, none of JK’s appearances have been at the Leicester Square Theatre.

When discussing how COVID-19 has affected RH’s ability to shake hands, JK and RH do a test shake.

RH imagines a scenario where Michael Ball is the RHLSTP guest. RH suggests a number of Alfie Boe-centric emergency questions (i.e., “Do you think Alfie Boe has ever seen a guest?”).

RH decides that he will ask all guests an Alfie Bow-related emergency question.

JK suggests that David Tennant would be a good RHLSTP guest.

JK and RH speculate as to which comedians might be serial killers.

JK and RH imagine a game show that’s between Family Fortunes and Pointless, wherein contestants have to find the average response (rather than the most frequently or least frequently given). The title of the game show would be Piggy In the Middle.
