Ladies and gentlemen,

0:00:170:00:19

please welcome your host for tonight...

0:00:190:00:22

Sara Pascoe!

0:00:220:00:24

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:240:00:27

Hello, hello, hello!

0:00:360:00:39

Welcome to Live At The Apollo.

0:00:390:00:41

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:410:00:43

Thank you so much. My name is Sara Pascoe.

0:00:430:00:45

It's my dream to be here.

0:00:450:00:47

It's a beautiful, beautiful venue,

0:00:470:00:48

and I just love... Do you love London?

0:00:480:00:50

CHEERING I love London.

0:00:500:00:52

I feel like London is created by the people, right?

0:00:520:00:55

Who are just crazy and sexy and ambitious.

0:00:550:01:00

I got into an Uber the other day, not bragging...

0:01:000:01:02

LAUGHTER I am.

0:01:020:01:04

I got into an Uber, and the driver, he said,

0:01:040:01:08

"Would you like to have the radio on?"

0:01:080:01:10

And I was like, "Oh, I don't mind, it's up to you."

0:01:100:01:14

And then he said, "Well, actually, I make my own music."

0:01:140:01:19

LAUGHTER

0:01:190:01:21

"Do you mind if I put some of that on?"

0:01:210:01:23

"No, I don't."

0:01:230:01:26

And then he put on Drake's new album.

0:01:260:01:28

LAUGHTER

0:01:280:01:31

I wonder how often it works.

0:01:310:01:33

I wonder how often there's a middle-aged white woman thinking,

0:01:330:01:36

"Oh, well, he looks like Aladdin,

0:01:360:01:38

"and he sounds like confidence personified."

0:01:380:01:41

LAUGHTER

0:01:410:01:42

"Pull over and jump in the back, Nikolai."

0:01:420:01:44

I love it.

0:01:440:01:46

I'm having a good life.

0:01:460:01:47

I have recently started doing yoga, which has just changed...

0:01:470:01:51

AUDIENCE: Woo!

0:01:510:01:52

Yes, woo, for the yoga over there.

0:01:520:01:54

Are you a team, come to...?

0:01:540:01:56

LAUGHTER

0:01:560:01:57

I'm new to it, I'm new to it.

0:01:570:01:59

I love it. Yoga has changed my life, it's brilliant, yoga is my new drug.

0:01:590:02:03

My old drug was drugs.

0:02:030:02:06

Which I'm not going to say anything positive about,

0:02:060:02:08

because it would be incredibly irresponsible.

0:02:080:02:10

I'm not going to say anything positive about drug-taking.

0:02:100:02:13

What I will say is I didn't take MDMA until I was 32,

0:02:130:02:18

and it was such a relief to know I could be happy.

0:02:180:02:22

LAUGHTER

0:02:220:02:24

I just assumed the equipment's broken.

0:02:240:02:27

But yoga is nearly as good, and there's no downsides.

0:02:270:02:30

It's given me a whole new language.

0:02:300:02:32

My favourite new word is "Namaste".

0:02:320:02:36

It's a very old word, it's very sacred,

0:02:360:02:38

and it means the yoga has finished now.

0:02:380:02:42

LAUGHTER

0:02:420:02:44

And then you're allowed to leave.

0:02:440:02:46

I think that the key to being happy as you get older is self acceptance,

0:02:460:02:50

I have to accept things about myself now.

0:02:500:02:52

Like, I'm 36, I thought I would have children by now, and I don't.

0:02:520:02:56

In an ideal world, what I wanted, I wanted to self-fertilise.

0:02:560:02:59

I wanted to have children that were exactly my genetics,

0:02:590:03:02

so that I could show them to my parents and go,

0:03:020:03:04

"See, it was my childhood, they're fine".

0:03:040:03:07

LAUGHTER

0:03:070:03:09

But science can't do that yet.

0:03:090:03:10

Then I had a crazy day last month where I just thought,

0:03:100:03:12

"I'm just going to buy some sperm.

0:03:120:03:14

"I'm just going to buy some sperm off the internet."

0:03:140:03:16

"I've got a good job, I'm just going to buy some sperm."

0:03:160:03:18

Guys, sperm is so much more expensive

0:03:180:03:20

than I thought it was going to be.

0:03:200:03:22

It is tens of thousands of pounds.

0:03:220:03:25

We are all wasting a valuable resource.

0:03:250:03:27

LAUGHTER

0:03:270:03:29

17-year-old me would have been a millionaire

0:03:290:03:31

if I'd learned how to catch it and chuck it in the freezer.

0:03:310:03:34

LAUGHTER

0:03:340:03:36

So expensive, it was a shock.

0:03:360:03:37

But I do think self-acceptance is the key.

0:03:370:03:39

Like, there's things about myself I don't like,

0:03:390:03:41

but I just have to accept now that they're not going to change,

0:03:410:03:44

this is who I am. So, for instance,

0:03:440:03:47

I don't like art.

0:03:470:03:48

I think art is rubbish.

0:03:500:03:52

I think lots of people think art is rubbish,

0:03:530:03:55

but we're too worried of looking stupid, so we go along with it.

0:03:550:03:58

I think that the worst art form is theatre.

0:03:580:04:02

All right, OK, I can sense how unpopular this opinion is.

0:04:030:04:06

Hear me out. I think theatre is diabolical.

0:04:060:04:09

I do. Look, and also, I'm aware, if you're a performer of some kind,

0:04:090:04:12

if you're an actor, look, please don't be offended -

0:04:120:04:14

I don't mean being in the play.

0:04:140:04:16

Obviously, if you're the person in the play

0:04:160:04:18

that gets to put a wig on and walk up and down and move your arms

0:04:180:04:22

and project your voice,

0:04:220:04:24

saying things like, "Um, I think you'll find

0:04:240:04:26

"you're contradicting yourself, Alan."

0:04:260:04:28

Fun!

0:04:280:04:30

Having to watch it...

0:04:300:04:32

Dear Christ.

0:04:320:04:34

I can't concentrate, I can't lose myself in the story.

0:04:340:04:38

I know that it's not real

0:04:380:04:39

because I'm surrounded by people eating crisps.

0:04:390:04:41

LAUGHTER

0:04:410:04:43

And they don't let you look at your phone, so all you're thinking is...

0:04:430:04:47

"Well, how long has it been?"

0:04:470:04:49

LAUGHTER

0:04:490:04:50

And you have to judge from how long it feels, which is forever.

0:04:500:04:53

And then they have a false ending,

0:04:540:04:56

called an interval...

0:04:560:04:58

Where, technically, you could leave,

0:04:580:05:00

but you have Stockholm syndrome

0:05:000:05:02

and you don't want everyone around you

0:05:020:05:04

to think you weren't intelligent enough to understand the play.

0:05:040:05:08

So you just sit there and you're trying to be positive,

0:05:080:05:10

you just think things like,

0:05:100:05:11

"Well, sometimes the second half is shorter."

0:05:110:05:14

LAUGHTER

0:05:140:05:15

Then, eventually, after several days, the play finishes.

0:05:150:05:20

Then what happens is you're flooded with an incredible feeling,

0:05:200:05:23

and it's called freedom.

0:05:230:05:25

It's electricity in your veins,

0:05:250:05:26

you're thinking, "I can do anything now.

0:05:260:05:28

"I can go outside, I could have a sandwich..."

0:05:280:05:31

And I think we confuse that feeling for having enjoyed the play.

0:05:310:05:35

LAUGHTER

0:05:350:05:37

And so you go in to work the next day, like,

0:05:370:05:39

"Guys, guys, you must see A View From The Bridge."

0:05:390:05:42

But it wasn't A View From The Bridge you enjoyed,

0:05:420:05:44

it was when it stopped happening.

0:05:440:05:46

I think this is about all of the performing arts.

0:05:460:05:48

I think opera, come on, come on.

0:05:480:05:51

It's just jokey singing gone long.

0:05:510:05:53

I think ballet is nonsensical.

0:05:530:05:55

I'm aware that people dedicate their lives to getting good at it,

0:05:550:05:58

but they shouldn't.

0:05:580:06:00

They're all wiggling around and, apparently, there's a story,

0:06:000:06:03

but if you want to find out the story,

0:06:030:06:04

you have to read the programme, like a book.

0:06:040:06:07

"Oh, look, apparently somebody's trapped inside the body of a swan."

0:06:070:06:10

Why are you telling me?

0:06:100:06:11

Call the RSPB...

0:06:110:06:13

LAUGHTER

0:06:130:06:14

..or the Queen. Also, I don't like music.

0:06:140:06:17

I know that everyone likes music, but I don't like it.

0:06:170:06:20

It's too noisy, shut up, music.

0:06:200:06:22

I don't want to have an emotion I didn't have a minute ago, thank you.

0:06:220:06:25

I don't want any memories. I do like Drake,

0:06:250:06:29

but that's only because I got off with him once in an Uber.

0:06:290:06:32

LAUGHTER

0:06:320:06:33

Oh, I'm sure,

0:06:340:06:36

I'm sure we'd all agree that the worst musical style is jazz.

0:06:360:06:41

You're really different with me.

0:06:410:06:43

Jazz is the worst.

0:06:430:06:45

I think it's the worst noise that human beings make.

0:06:450:06:48

It's oral excrement.

0:06:480:06:50

"Oh, Sara, is your dad a jazz musician?"

0:06:500:06:53

Shut up, my ex-boyfriend's therapist.

0:06:530:06:55

This has got nothing to do with my...

0:06:550:06:57

It's connected to my dad.

0:06:570:06:59

A stressed off-beat just reminds me of being neglected.

0:06:590:07:01

LAUGHTER

0:07:010:07:03

What else don't I like? Oh, there is a good part of an art gallery -

0:07:030:07:06

it's called the gift shop.

0:07:060:07:08

LAUGHTER Here we go, now we're talking.

0:07:080:07:10

Pencils, sharpeners, postcards, but everyone is very disapproving

0:07:100:07:13

if you run through the gallery yelling, "Gift shop!"

0:07:130:07:17

You're supposed to stop and look at some of the pictures.

0:07:170:07:20

Why are we stopping and looking?

0:07:200:07:22

It's not magic eye.

0:07:220:07:24

I can see what they are straight away.

0:07:240:07:26

Like, dogs, a horse, a dead-old rich person, gift shop!

0:07:260:07:30

LAUGHTER

0:07:300:07:31

Also, if you're one of the people who stops in front of

0:07:310:07:33

one of the ones that's just a colour...

0:07:330:07:36

LAUGHTER

0:07:360:07:38

Stop, stop pretending.

0:07:390:07:42

I know you're not feeling anything.

0:07:420:07:44

"Oh, oh, but, Sara, isn't stand-up comedy an art form?"

0:07:440:07:47

No, no.

0:07:470:07:49

Clearly not. Also, don't get me wrong,

0:07:490:07:51

some people do stand-up exceptionally well,

0:07:510:07:54

but you know that it isn't an art form

0:07:540:07:56

because no-one's ever had to explain to you what it means.

0:07:560:08:00

It just works or it doesn't, it's a craft.

0:08:000:08:02

It's either funny and it's stand-up comedy,

0:08:020:08:05

or it's not and it's a TED Talk.

0:08:050:08:07

LAUGHTER

0:08:070:08:08

Yeah, yeah.

0:08:080:08:09

And it's good, and I like that I am a craftsperson.

0:08:090:08:13

Because a craftsperson dedicates their life

0:08:130:08:15

to getting better at something, at honing their skill.

0:08:150:08:18

It's like if I was a chair maker and I brought out a chair,

0:08:180:08:21

and you sat on it and it supported your weight,

0:08:210:08:24

well, then, that is good craftsmanship.

0:08:240:08:26

If I bring out a chair, and you sit on it and it collapses,

0:08:260:08:29

and you fall on the floor, that's brilliant comedy.

0:08:290:08:31

I made you think I was a chair maker!

0:08:310:08:35

I pranked you.

0:08:350:08:36

I'm fun, is the point I was trying to make, I'm really fun.

0:08:360:08:40

Valentine's Day this year,

0:08:400:08:42

I decided I was going to go to Paris all by myself,

0:08:420:08:45

and that's because I'm a single woman.

0:08:450:08:47

And also, I don't like the term single.

0:08:470:08:49

I hate the term single.

0:08:490:08:50

I prefer the term very, very lonely.

0:08:500:08:53

LAUGHTER

0:08:530:08:55

The thing is, you know, I don't like that we use...

0:08:550:08:57

I think being single is the default.

0:08:570:08:59

I don't like this whole idea that you're supposed to be in a couple.

0:08:590:09:02

Human beings are meant to be sold separately.

0:09:020:09:04

We're not Twixes, we're Peperamis.

0:09:040:09:05

LAUGHTER

0:09:050:09:08

Whether you're in a relationship or not, you are alone.

0:09:080:09:10

It's that cliche, of course, but you're born alone and you die alone,

0:09:100:09:13

asterix - unless you are a conjoined twin,

0:09:130:09:16

in which case you're born with somebody else, you freakish Twix.

0:09:160:09:19

LAUGHTER

0:09:190:09:21

The only way that you're not alone is if you're one of those twins

0:09:210:09:24

who grew round the other one while you were in the womb,

0:09:240:09:28

but you might not even know.

0:09:280:09:29

You might be sitting there thinking you're normal,

0:09:290:09:32

and then one day you go for a scan and the nurse faints

0:09:320:09:34

because your tumour has hair and a face.

0:09:340:09:36

LAUGHTER

0:09:360:09:37

It's a whole thing, and you'll know this cos you see comedy,

0:09:370:09:40

but you know when people do, like, mean jokes,

0:09:400:09:41

they do horrible jokes about people?

0:09:410:09:43

I always think, "No, jokes just shouldn't be nasty about people,

0:09:430:09:46

"unless they grew round their twin in the womb."

0:09:460:09:48

LAUGHTER

0:09:480:09:49

I think they deserve everything they get.

0:09:490:09:51

I think murdering someone by growing round them

0:09:510:09:54

is one of the worst things a person can do,

0:09:540:09:57

and if you did grow round your twin in the womb

0:09:570:09:59

and you're sitting there thinking, "Oh, well, this is unfair,"

0:09:590:10:02

you should have thought about that

0:10:020:10:04

before you engulfed your brother and kept him in your colon.

0:10:040:10:07

LAUGHTER

0:10:070:10:09

My point was, I went to Paris.

0:10:090:10:12

I went to Paris on Valentine's Day, didn't I?

0:10:120:10:15

Because I thought, "Look, it's the most romantic city in the world,

0:10:150:10:18

"on the most romantic day." I thought it would be hilarious.

0:10:180:10:20

"I've got to write stand-up comedy," I thought,

0:10:200:10:22

"It's going to be so funny. I'll be walking around weeping,

0:10:220:10:25

"as people point going, 'Elle est unlovable'. "

0:10:250:10:27

LAUGHTER

0:10:270:10:28

I've been to Paris before, three times,

0:10:280:10:30

each time with my ex-boyfriend.

0:10:300:10:32

That's where we had our three biggest rows.

0:10:320:10:34

First time, because eight months into the relationship,

0:10:340:10:37

I found out he had a horrible secret.

0:10:370:10:39

He grew round his twin in the womb.

0:10:390:10:41

LAUGHTER

0:10:410:10:43

Second time, we had a horrible argument

0:10:430:10:45

because he wasn't into PDAs,

0:10:450:10:48

or PDAs...

0:10:480:10:50

That is public displays of affection,

0:10:500:10:52

or private displays of affection.

0:10:520:10:54

LAUGHTER

0:10:540:10:55

On the third time,

0:10:550:10:56

we just felt an argument brewing and booked the Eurostar.

0:10:560:10:59

So, this is my first time in Paris all by myself.

0:10:590:11:02

The first thing I noticed was, when you're in a couple,

0:11:020:11:05

you see the entire world behind their head.

0:11:050:11:08

You're always looking at their lovely face,

0:11:080:11:10

the world is a backdrop.

0:11:100:11:11

When you take that person away, you see more world.

0:11:110:11:14

So that's good.

0:11:140:11:16

Yeah, you see more, you notice more stuff,

0:11:160:11:18

like how rubbish some of the tourist attractions are.

0:11:180:11:21

I went up the Eiffel Tower.

0:11:210:11:23

If you're not kissing someone, it's just a high-up cage.

0:11:230:11:26

LAUGHTER

0:11:260:11:27

It's not a good day out.

0:11:270:11:29

But nothing funny happened the entire time I was there,

0:11:290:11:31

which was four days, nothing funny.

0:11:310:11:34

"Oh, so, Sara, why are you telling us?"

0:11:340:11:37

Because otherwise that trip is not tax deductible.

0:11:370:11:40

LAUGHTER

0:11:400:11:43

So... APPLAUSE

0:11:430:11:46

It's awful, and you're clapping it, and it's true.

0:11:460:11:50

LAUGHTER It's true.

0:11:500:11:52

I would like to speak to you now

0:11:520:11:53

about a much more positive thing.

0:11:530:11:56

I'm going to introduce to you now a fantastic comedian.

0:11:560:11:59

He is the best joker I'd say this country has ever created.

0:11:590:12:02

I think you're going to absolutely love the incredible Gary Delaney!

0:12:020:12:07

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:12:070:12:10

Woo!

0:12:130:12:15

Yeah!

0:12:150:12:17

Woo!

0:12:170:12:18

Yeah!

0:12:180:12:20

Woo!

0:12:200:12:21

You know when you're a kid...

0:12:290:12:30

..and you go to the dentist...

0:12:320:12:33

..and if you don't cry, they give you a badge or a sticker, yeah?

0:12:340:12:39

Well, I had a prostate exam today.

0:12:400:12:42

LAUGHTER

0:12:420:12:45

LAUGHTER

0:12:530:12:55

Just get rid of this.

0:12:570:12:58

Hello, Apollo.

0:13:010:13:03

CHEERING

0:13:030:13:05

Ah, you seem nice. So, my grief counsellor died recently, but...

0:13:050:13:09

LAUGHTER

0:13:090:13:11

But, luckily, he was so good, I didn't give a shit.

0:13:110:13:14

LAUGHTER

0:13:140:13:16

Nice to be back, though. Last time I was here, a girl asked me for sex.

0:13:200:13:24

I had to disappoint her.

0:13:240:13:26

We had sex.

0:13:260:13:27

LAUGHTER

0:13:270:13:29

Somebody over there laughing at the idea

0:13:290:13:31

somebody might have asked me for sex.

0:13:310:13:33

It wasn't supposed to be the funny bit in that joke,

0:13:330:13:36

but nice to see you again.

0:13:360:13:37

LAUGHTER

0:13:370:13:39

I'd recognise that laugh anywhere...

0:13:420:13:44

..only tonight, it's slightly less hurtful.

0:13:450:13:47

LAUGHTER

0:13:470:13:48

I'm trying to learn to be a more sensitive lover.

0:13:490:13:52

I got a DVD, How To Improve Your Foreplay Technique.

0:13:520:13:55

It was really good, I had to fast forward

0:13:550:13:57

through the boring bit at the beginning.

0:13:570:13:59

LAUGHTER

0:13:590:14:01

The young couple next door to me have recently made a sex tape.

0:14:050:14:09

I mean, obviously they don't know that yet.

0:14:100:14:12

LAUGHTER

0:14:120:14:15

APPLAUSE

0:14:150:14:16

I used to go out with a parachutist with IBS,

0:14:200:14:23

but she shat on me from a great height.

0:14:230:14:24

LAUGHTER

0:14:240:14:25

I think it's sad the word "legend"

0:14:300:14:32

has been devalued from pulling a sword from a stone,

0:14:320:14:34

to unexpectedly returning with crisps.

0:14:340:14:37

LAUGHTER

0:14:370:14:39

I hired a landscape gardener,

0:14:420:14:44

but he said he couldn't help because my garden was portrait.

0:14:440:14:47

LAUGHTER

0:14:470:14:48

Every Christmas Day, we always have pigs in blankets,

0:14:510:14:54

or as you probably call it,

0:14:540:14:56

relatives sleeping in the spare room.

0:14:560:14:57

LAUGHTER

0:14:570:14:59

It's tradition in our family that we always have a Christmas jumper,

0:15:010:15:04

and then it's my job to talk them down.

0:15:040:15:06

LAUGHTER

0:15:060:15:08

I went on a barging holiday.

0:15:110:15:13

I haven't got a boat, I just kept pushing people into canals.

0:15:130:15:16

LAUGHTER

0:15:160:15:19

I don't like to eat anything labelled "reformed ham".

0:15:230:15:26

As I think it's unfair that the pigs are slaughtered

0:15:260:15:28

after they've got their lives back on track.

0:15:280:15:30

LAUGHTER

0:15:300:15:32

This morning, I went to a meeting

0:15:340:15:35

at my premature ejaculator's support group. Turns out, it's tomorrow.

0:15:350:15:38

LAUGHTER

0:15:380:15:41

APPLAUSE

0:15:410:15:44

I can't believe the gentleman there

0:15:460:15:48

started clapping before the end of that joke, which is ironic.

0:15:480:15:51

I do appreciate that.

0:15:510:15:53

LAUGHTER

0:15:530:15:54

I accidentally kicked my dog earlier,

0:15:540:15:56

and it bit me on the bollocks. My mate said, "It's karma."

0:15:560:15:58

I said, "No, if anything, it's even more angry.

0:15:580:16:01

LAUGHTER

0:16:010:16:03

I tell you what always catches my eye...

0:16:060:16:08

Short people with umbrellas.

0:16:080:16:10

LAUGHTER

0:16:100:16:12

I put on a lot of weight, so I rang up Weight Watchers, I said,

0:16:180:16:21

"It's an emergency, can you send somebody round?"

0:16:210:16:24

They said, "Yes, we can, we've got loads of them."

0:16:240:16:27

LAUGHTER

0:16:270:16:29

I was actually thrown out of Weight Watchers

0:16:350:16:37

for making sarcastic comments

0:16:370:16:38

at the weekly weigh-in. As you can imagine,

0:16:380:16:40

I accepted the decision with huge Grace,

0:16:400:16:42

because they threw her out as well.

0:16:420:16:44

LAUGHTER

0:16:440:16:46

I was watching TV,

0:16:500:16:52

the announcer said there's a documentary

0:16:520:16:54

about the clitoris on the red button,

0:16:540:16:55

but I couldn't find it.

0:16:550:16:57

LAUGHTER

0:16:570:16:59

APPLAUSE

0:16:590:17:00

If you watch a porn film backwards,

0:17:040:17:05

it's about a man who hoovers spunk off a woman...

0:17:050:17:08

LAUGHTER

0:17:080:17:10

Then breaks her washing machine and leaves.

0:17:120:17:15

LAUGHTER

0:17:150:17:16

We've all done it.

0:17:180:17:19

A friend of mine had a penis extension.

0:17:220:17:24

Now his house looks really stupid.

0:17:240:17:27

LAUGHTER

0:17:270:17:29

I was in a sex shop, I saw a dildo

0:17:300:17:31

described as nine inches long and realistic.

0:17:310:17:34

I thought, "Well, which is it?"

0:17:340:17:35

LAUGHTER

0:17:350:17:36

My grandad went down in history, and on one occasion,

0:17:380:17:41

fingered a girl in geography.

0:17:410:17:42

LAUGHTER

0:17:420:17:45

APPLAUSE

0:17:450:17:47

There's only one thing I don't like about Halloween, "WITCHES"...

0:17:500:17:53

LAUGHTER

0:17:530:17:55

APPLAUSE

0:17:570:17:59

I thought PPI was just something you could get

0:18:010:18:03

if you didn't wear goggles at the swimming baths.

0:18:030:18:05

LAUGHTER

0:18:050:18:07

My girlfriend's dog died, so to cheer her up,

0:18:100:18:12

I got her an identical one.

0:18:120:18:14

She was livid! "What am I going to do with two dead dogs?"

0:18:140:18:16

LAUGHTER

0:18:160:18:17

I bought a chocolate bar. On the inside of the wrapper it said,

0:18:200:18:22

"You're a loser." I wouldn't have minded

0:18:220:18:24

if there'd been some sort of competition on.

0:18:240:18:27

To make things worse, it was a Boost.

0:18:270:18:30

LAUGHTER

0:18:300:18:32

My uncle Derek was found dead with a belt round his neck

0:18:320:18:35

and a dildo up his arse. At his funeral,

0:18:350:18:38

the vicar said we'd always remember him for his charity work.

0:18:380:18:41

Wrong.

0:18:410:18:43

LAUGHTER

0:18:430:18:46

I accidentally filled the Escort with diesel...

0:18:500:18:52

She died.

0:18:520:18:54

LAUGHTER

0:18:540:18:56

I always worry when a woman sees me naked for the first time

0:19:020:19:06

that she's just going to scream and run out of the park.

0:19:060:19:08

LAUGHTER

0:19:080:19:10

When I heard you could now be a sperm donor by post,

0:19:130:19:15

I came in a Jiffy.

0:19:150:19:17

LAUGHTER

0:19:170:19:18

My girlfriend she said she wanted to try some new condoms

0:19:200:19:22

with something special inside to boost her pleasure.

0:19:220:19:25

I said, "Ooh, what's that?"

0:19:250:19:26

And she said, "Other men's cocks."

0:19:260:19:28

LAUGHTER

0:19:280:19:31

I've been trying to persuade my girlfriend to sexually stimulate me

0:19:350:19:37

with her key ring but she just keeps fobbing me off.

0:19:370:19:40

LAUGHTER

0:19:400:19:42

APPLAUSE

0:19:420:19:43

You've been lovely, I've been Gary Delaney,

0:19:450:19:47

thank you, goodnight, bye-bye.

0:19:470:19:49

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:19:490:19:51

Give it up for Gary Delaney!

0:19:540:19:56

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:19:560:19:58

I'm going to introduce to you another comedian now,

0:20:000:20:02

I've gigged with him several times

0:20:020:20:04

and every time, I've been so impressed with his wit

0:20:040:20:06

and his energy, and if you haven't seen him before,

0:20:060:20:08

I'm so excited for you that you're going to get to see him now.

0:20:080:20:11

Can you please go absolutely wild and crazy for Larry Dean!

0:20:110:20:14

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:20:140:20:17

Thank you very much, hello!

0:20:260:20:28

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:20:280:20:30

It's a pleasure to be here.

0:20:300:20:32

I'm not from round here.

0:20:330:20:35

If you're trying to place my accent, I'm from the EU.

0:20:370:20:42

LAUGHTER

0:20:420:20:44

Well, it's good to be in London town, man, I'm from Glasgow.

0:20:470:20:51

Means I'm friendly, because we're very friendly in Glasgow.

0:20:530:20:57

Although we're a scary friendly.

0:20:570:20:58

LAUGHTER

0:20:580:21:00

We'll give you directions, but we'll follow you

0:21:000:21:02

to make sure that you've done them correctly.

0:21:020:21:05

LAUGHTER

0:21:050:21:07

It's strange coming back down here, ever since the EU referendum.

0:21:070:21:12

Since Scotland voted to stay and England voted to leave,

0:21:120:21:16

Scottish people feel as if they've got a moral high ground.

0:21:160:21:22

Have I pronounced that correctly?

0:21:220:21:25

Because we've never had one of them before in Scotland.

0:21:250:21:27

LAUGHTER

0:21:270:21:29

It's so weird, on the day of the vote, we were like,

0:21:320:21:34

"Ah, we've won! Because we've lost."

0:21:340:21:37

That's the most Scottish thing we've ever done.

0:21:380:21:41

And ever since, it seemed like afterwards,

0:21:410:21:43

that England was becoming more right-wing,

0:21:430:21:45

so Scotland started becoming more left-wing.

0:21:450:21:48

It was as if Scottish people had gone,

0:21:480:21:50

"What - England's being racist?

0:21:500:21:54

"Oh, no, we're not doing that any more, guys, no.

0:21:540:21:56

"If England's doing it, we are not doing that."

0:21:590:22:01

It's making Scottish people better people.

0:22:030:22:05

As soon as England shows any racism, Scottish people are like,

0:22:050:22:09

"Oh, no, what are you on about? We love foreigners here."

0:22:090:22:13

LAUGHTER

0:22:130:22:16

Judging somebody based on a religion?

0:22:160:22:18

No, we've never done that either.

0:22:200:22:22

LAUGHTER

0:22:220:22:23

APPLAUSE

0:22:250:22:27

It wasn't my first thought, though, after Brexit,

0:22:270:22:29

because I thought, like, like a lot of Remain voters,

0:22:290:22:32

I thought, "I'm moving, I'm going to move."

0:22:320:22:33

I thought, "I'm going to move to Australia,

0:22:330:22:35

"because if I'm going to live on a racist island,

0:22:350:22:37

"it may as well be sunny."

0:22:370:22:39

LAUGHTER

0:22:390:22:41

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:22:410:22:43

Thank you very much. I would've...

0:22:470:22:48

It would have been bad to move, man, though,

0:22:480:22:50

cos I do like living here, and that.

0:22:500:22:52

And also, I'd have missed my family too much.

0:22:520:22:55

I moved back in with my parents about a year ago,

0:22:550:22:57

cos I got out of a relationship.

0:22:570:22:59

You don't really move back in with your parents

0:22:590:23:01

for a good reason, do you?

0:23:010:23:03

It's not, "Oh, I got a promotion at work,

0:23:030:23:05

"so I thought Mummy and Daddy could do with some company."

0:23:050:23:08

LAUGHTER

0:23:080:23:09

Usually, it's either emotional issues or financial issues.

0:23:110:23:15

My dad called mine... "the double whammy".

0:23:150:23:17

LAUGHTER

0:23:170:23:19

As soon as I moved back in with them, I thought,

0:23:190:23:21

"I've got to start dating again, I need an out plan, right?"

0:23:210:23:23

On my first date back, I was terrified.

0:23:230:23:25

It didn't help, right, that the guy was a bit weird.

0:23:250:23:28

Oh, yeah, guy - I'm a gay person.

0:23:290:23:32

Key change, here we go, sisters!

0:23:320:23:35

LAUGHTER

0:23:350:23:38

APPLAUSE

0:23:380:23:40

That's right, I'm a sodomite.

0:23:420:23:45

Nothing more scary than a Glaswegian gay man.

0:23:480:23:50

I'm gonnae bum you.

0:23:500:23:51

LAUGHTER

0:23:510:23:53

Sorry, mate.

0:23:570:23:59

You're heterosexual? A nod of the head there,

0:23:590:24:02

"Yes, I love the vulva."

0:24:020:24:03

LAUGHTER

0:24:030:24:05

I don't know why I had to change my voice for that.

0:24:050:24:08

"Yes, I love the vulva."

0:24:080:24:09

Larry Dean, BBC News, I'm very gay.

0:24:090:24:12

LAUGHTER

0:24:120:24:13

This is my favourite bit of any gig, man, I love this bit,

0:24:130:24:16

it's so much fun, because I'm just looking at all the straight men

0:24:160:24:18

in the room looking at me going,

0:24:180:24:21

"Hold on, he's gay?

0:24:210:24:23

"He doesn't look gay.

0:24:230:24:25

"I don't look gay.

0:24:250:24:26

"Maybe I'M gay?"

0:24:260:24:28

LAUGHTER

0:24:280:24:31

Actually, to be honest, I don't even like the word gay.

0:24:350:24:37

I'm not a fan of the word gay.

0:24:370:24:39

The word gay gets used quite derogatory sometimes.

0:24:390:24:41

It would be like, "Oh, that's gay, I don't like that, that's gay."

0:24:410:24:43

In Scotland, we don't even need to use that word.

0:24:430:24:45

In Scotland,

0:24:450:24:47

we can describe somebody as a homosexual

0:24:470:24:49

by using any noun in the English language.

0:24:490:24:52

Like, what? Is he a blueberry, aye?

0:24:540:24:56

LAUGHTER

0:24:560:24:58

Oh, see that guy, I've heard he's a lava lamp.

0:24:590:25:02

LAUGHTER

0:25:020:25:04

I found this out when I was having an argument with my dad, right,

0:25:090:25:12

cos I could see my dad wanted to call me a big Jessie,

0:25:120:25:15

but I could see him thinking,

0:25:150:25:16

"I don't know if that's homophobic now, actually,"

0:25:160:25:19

so my dad went, "Ah, get lost, you big...

0:25:190:25:21

"duvet!"

0:25:210:25:24

LAUGHTER

0:25:240:25:27

Because I, like, I thought, "I'll try and be camp, right,"

0:25:270:25:30

because I thought, "If I'm camp, then people will know already,

0:25:300:25:34

"so I won't need to tell people," because sometimes you assume, right,

0:25:340:25:37

so I started going around with my wrist down...

0:25:370:25:41

I know, I don't look camp - I just look ill.

0:25:420:25:44

I did that for a while, though,

0:25:470:25:49

and I got to go to Disneyland for free, so it wasn't all bad.

0:25:490:25:51

LAUGHTER

0:25:510:25:53

But nobody thought I was gay,

0:25:550:25:57

so I started putting my bum out as well.

0:25:570:25:59

That's my problem, if I was camp,

0:26:010:26:02

I would just look like a dinosaur.

0:26:020:26:04

Walking down the road like that.

0:26:060:26:07

"Ooh, there's a sale on..."

0:26:110:26:13

HE SCREECHES

0:26:130:26:16

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

HE SCREECHES

0:26:240:26:28

I'm sorry, pal, sorry, man, you all right?

0:26:350:26:38

You're all right, mate,

0:26:420:26:43

you're a hetrosaur! Hey!

0:26:430:26:45

LAUGHTER

0:26:450:26:47

I'll make him a "mega sore ass"!

0:26:490:26:51

Wey!

0:26:510:26:52

LAUGHTER

0:26:520:26:53

HE LAUGHS

0:26:560:26:57

Just so you know, I'm a postman, not a postbox.

0:26:570:27:00

LAUGHTER

0:27:000:27:03

Oh, what a lovely reaction that was.

0:27:070:27:10

Some people were laughing, others going, what the hell does he mean?

0:27:100:27:13

LAUGHTER

0:27:130:27:16

How I deliver the male, hey-hey!

0:27:160:27:17

I'm terrified of that, though, man,

0:27:190:27:21

I'm so scared of anything going near my bum.

0:27:210:27:25

LAUGHTER

0:27:250:27:26

Goodnight.

0:27:270:27:29

LAUGHTER

0:27:290:27:31

Honestly, I'm so scared of it.

0:27:350:27:36

I'm what gay people call "selfish".

0:27:360:27:39

But I have to... I didn't know this by the way - apparently,

0:27:410:27:43

some straight guys like a finger up the bum...

0:27:430:27:46

That's the sound of women who trim their fingernails.

0:27:490:27:51

LAUGHTER

0:27:510:27:53

I had no idea.

0:27:530:27:55

Apparently, some straight guys like a finger up the bum

0:27:550:27:58

when they are getting a blow job.

0:27:580:28:01

That's like trying to get the last drop out of a Frube.

0:28:010:28:04

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:28:040:28:06

Folks, you've been absolutely lovely.

0:28:080:28:10

This has been a dream come true for me.

0:28:100:28:12

I've been Larry Dean, enjoy the rest of your night.

0:28:120:28:14

Take care, cheers, thank you.

0:28:140:28:15

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:28:150:28:17

How good is Larry Dean?!

0:28:200:28:21

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:28:210:28:24

Please give it up for Gary Delaney, Larry Dean.

0:28:240:28:26

You've been an incredible audience. I hope you've enjoyed your night.

0:28:260:28:29

I'm Sara Pascoe, goodnight!

0:28:290:28:31

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
