CHEERING CONTINUES

0:11:510:11:53

James Acaster.

0:12:050:12:06

Good to see you all. Thanks for coming. Why? Why are you here?

0:12:090:12:13

Why are you here?

0:12:130:12:15

Why do people come to see stand-up comedy?

0:12:150:12:17

I know why. It took me ages to figure it out. I finally know.

0:12:170:12:20

You come for the celebrity gossip.

0:12:200:12:23

That is why you're here.

0:12:230:12:24

You know start-up comedians, we brush shoulders with celebrities all the time.

0:12:240:12:28

We're the bridge between the public and the stars.

0:12:280:12:30

Every now and again we get a bit of gossip in our claws,

0:12:300:12:32

you come to see us praying we're going to spill the beans.

0:12:320:12:35

We never do, do we?

0:12:360:12:38

You leave disappointed every time, don't you?

0:12:380:12:41

Good news.

0:12:410:12:43

I'm going to do it.

0:12:430:12:45

That's how the show starts, with some celebrity gossip.

0:12:450:12:48

Now let's just say I happen to know a certain celebrity,

0:12:480:12:51

like a month and a half ago, got himself kicked out of a karaoke bar.

0:12:510:12:56

Now, look at your faces. Look at your faces.

0:12:560:13:00

You know what your faces are saying?

0:13:000:13:02

"Who did that?"

0:13:020:13:04

"Who did that?" This might surprise you.

0:13:050:13:07

None other than Jorge Galleguillos.

0:13:070:13:11

Yeah?

0:13:140:13:15

You remember Jorge Galleguillos, don't you?

0:13:150:13:18

You remember Jorge Galleguillos.

0:13:180:13:20

It's been a while.

0:13:200:13:22

What's it been, five years since he got out the mine?

0:13:220:13:26

LAUGHTER

0:13:260:13:28

About that, isn't it? Five years since the Chilean miners.

0:13:290:13:32

But they're massive celebrities now.

0:13:320:13:34

They are massive, you can't deny that.

0:13:340:13:36

I've got some celebrity gossip about Jorge Galleguillos.

0:13:360:13:39

I'm not keeping it to myself, either.

0:13:390:13:41

Kicked out of a karaoke bar.

0:13:430:13:44

Jorge! I know he's the bad boy of the group, but even so.

0:13:440:13:48

You expect it from Florencio Avalos, you don't expect it from Jorge Galleguillos, do you?

0:13:480:13:52

He's the rascal.

0:13:520:13:53

Here's the real scoop -

0:13:550:13:56

it weren't even a karaoke bar, he only thought it was.

0:13:560:13:59

Just a normal pub.

0:14:010:14:03

Normal pub playing really loud music with a TV in the corner

0:14:030:14:06

showing the news with the subtitles on.

0:14:060:14:09

He was singing the details of the Greek financial crisis

0:14:110:14:15

to the tune of Livin' On A Prayer.

0:14:150:14:17

Classic Jorge Galleguillos.

0:14:170:14:19

LAUGHTER

0:14:190:14:21

Bit more celebrity gossip for you, since you're so hungry.

0:14:230:14:26

Didn't know you were so hungry for it. Open wide, here's some more.

0:14:260:14:29

Heads up, this next celebrity is a bit more obscure.

0:14:310:14:36

LAUGHTER

0:14:360:14:38

Fair warning.

0:14:390:14:41

It's Jimmy Sanchez.

0:14:410:14:43

Yeah, most of you won't even remember Jimmy Sanchez, to be fair.

0:14:430:14:46

Jog your memory. Jimmy Sanchez, he was the 29th miner out the mine.

0:14:460:14:50

Jimmy Sanchez, remember him? Yes. Yes, yes, yes.

0:14:500:14:52

Remember him now, don't you?

0:14:520:14:54

Of course you do. You remember Jimmy. When did he come up?

0:14:540:14:57

He was in between Daniel Herrara and who was it?

0:14:570:15:01

Julio Aguilera?

0:15:010:15:03

Aguilera, wasn't it? Yeah, it was. It was Julio Aguilera, actually.

0:15:030:15:06

Jimmy Sanchez...

0:15:090:15:10

When I tell you this, right, some of you will be like,

0:15:100:15:13

"Big deal. Why is that even gossip? Who cares? That's pretty normal."

0:15:130:15:16

Others, you'll be like, "That is disgusting and unnatural.

0:15:160:15:18

"I can't believe it, it's appalling, I'm glad that you told me that, actually."

0:15:180:15:22

Jimmy Sanchez, he has hot drinks with hot meals.

0:15:220:15:26

LAUGHTER

0:15:260:15:28

How does your mouth even know the difference, mate? What are you playing at?

0:15:320:15:36

I'm not exaggerating. Like a cup of tea and a bowl of minestrone.

0:15:370:15:40

Not one after the other - alternating mouthfuls back and forth.

0:15:400:15:44

Each to their own, but it's not for me, you know?

0:15:480:15:51

That doesn't leave this room, by the way.

0:15:530:15:55

LAUGHTER

0:15:550:15:57

Bit more. Bit more.

0:16:000:16:02

Pedro Cortes...

0:16:040:16:06

LAUGHTER

0:16:060:16:07

You remember him, don't you? Pedro Cortez.

0:16:070:16:09

You remember Pedro Cortez.

0:16:090:16:11

He was the 11th and 18th miner out the mine.

0:16:110:16:14

He forgot something, had to go back for it.

0:16:140:16:16

LAUGHTER

0:16:160:16:18

I think it was a charger.

0:16:180:16:19

Don't quote me on that, but I think it was a charger.

0:16:190:16:22

Pedro Cortez, right,

0:16:250:16:27

he often sends people e-mails with the subject heading,

"Check out this funny video", then forgets to include the link.

0:16:290:16:33

What a time waster!

0:16:330:16:35

LAUGHTER

0:16:350:16:36

Glad to see we got some proper Chilean miners fans in tonight, by the way.

0:16:380:16:42

That doesn't always happen. Hard-core fans, am I right?

0:16:420:16:45

Since before they got stuck.

0:16:450:16:46

LAUGHTER

0:16:460:16:49

When it was all about the mining.

0:16:490:16:51

Anyway, we're not here to gossip. Thank you.

0:16:580:17:01

Do some rough gigs in this job. I played a members-only club once.

0:17:040:17:07

Any idea how bad that is?

0:17:070:17:09

Just the worst people in the world in a members-only club.

0:17:090:17:12

If you're not a member, rest assured, you're missing out on nothing.

0:17:120:17:16

Absolute scum, every single one of them.

0:17:160:17:18

It's the most pompous people ever - pretentious.

0:17:180:17:21

They were sitting there, I'm doing a gig,

0:17:210:17:23

they're knocking back calamari shavings and just heckling me

0:17:230:17:27

for the whole show, treating me like their own personal court jester.

0:17:270:17:30

I'm not even getting paid money. My payment - membership to the club.

0:17:300:17:35

At one point I started bantering with them all, asking them what they did for a living.

0:17:350:17:39

Turns out they were all stand-up comedians who'd done the gig in the past.

0:17:390:17:44

LAUGHTER

0:17:440:17:46

We got over it. Two weeks later I had a mouthful of olives,

0:17:500:17:52

heckling Josh Widdicombe like a champion.

0:17:520:17:55

I don't even regret that.

0:17:550:17:57

Trying to work on my skill set, though, you know. Branch out a bit.

0:18:000:18:03

Trying to learn how to play pool. That's hard.

0:18:030:18:06

Before you even start you have to set the balls up in that triangle.

0:18:060:18:09

I don't know what order they're meant to go in.

0:18:090:18:11

It's a secret amongst tough guys.

0:18:110:18:13

Seven reds, seven yellows, one black

0:18:160:18:18

not in an easy-to-memorise, pretty pattern.

0:18:180:18:20

Like, if you want to remember the order of the colour of the rainbow,

0:18:200:18:23

you just remember "Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain." Easy.

0:18:230:18:27

It's nothing like that when it comes to the pool balls.

0:18:270:18:30

Until now.

0:18:320:18:34

LAUGHTER

0:18:340:18:35

I had a night off, I got a pen and paper out.

0:18:350:18:37

Now, if I ever need to set those pool balls up, I just remember

0:18:370:18:40

"Renovating Your Rock'n'Roll Bungalow

0:18:400:18:42

"Yielded Yesterday's Ritalin Yet Raspberry Ripple Ying-yangs Repel Yoghurt."

0:18:420:18:46

LAUGHTER

0:18:460:18:48

Or: "Sellotaping Steven Spielberg's Broken Seesaw

0:18:530:18:56

Sends Satellite Signals Southbound So Sushi Seems Suspicious"

0:18:560:18:59

if you're playing spots and stripes.

0:18:590:19:01

LAUGHTER

0:19:010:19:03

APPLAUSE

0:19:050:19:08

Trying to learn how to play the acoustic guitar as well.

0:19:100:19:14

Again, difficult.

0:19:140:19:15

The other day I'm practising,

0:19:150:19:16

drop my plectrum down that hole in the middle.

0:19:160:19:20

Irretrievable. Gone forever.

0:19:200:19:23

Eventually, I just put the guitar under a tap

0:19:230:19:25

and I filled it up with water

0:19:250:19:26

until it floated out and then I caught it real quick.

0:19:260:19:30

Can't play guitar to save my life.

0:19:300:19:31

Good at air guitar, though. Real good at air guitar.

0:19:310:19:34

Every time I'm at a disco, air guitaring all night.

0:19:340:19:38

Unless there's no guitar on the track, then I don't do it.

0:19:380:19:40

You rub people up the wrong way, you know?

0:19:400:19:43

Like, if I'm ever at a rave,

0:19:430:19:45

which I am pretty much every night of the week,

0:19:450:19:47

if I'm at a rave, it's all synthesisers, no guitar in any of the songs.

0:19:470:19:52

So what I tend to do, all night, I just do this dance move, just do this:

0:19:520:19:55

See what I'm doing?

0:20:080:20:09

I'm still doing air guitar,

0:20:110:20:12

I just dropped the plectrum down that hole, I'm trying to shake it out again.

0:20:120:20:16

LAUGHTER

0:20:160:20:17

I like so many different types of music.

0:20:240:20:26

I like a cappella music.

0:20:260:20:29

My favourite a cappella song, probably, Who Ate All The Pies.

0:20:290:20:33

LAUGHTER

0:20:330:20:36

It's a good song, innit?

0:20:360:20:37

Usually they sing it at football stadiums, you know.

0:20:390:20:42

Be at a stadium or whatever, usually about a thousand people sing it,

0:20:420:20:45

and they sing it to one person.

0:20:450:20:47

Just serenade one guy.

0:20:480:20:51

Usually a rotund fellow.

0:20:510:20:53

Usually a rotund fellow, not expecting the serenade.

0:20:550:20:58

And then all the others, all those thousand people,

0:20:590:21:02

they were wondering, who...

0:21:020:21:05

And this was a serious concern.

0:21:070:21:09

Who ate all the pies? They all had that thought at the same time.

0:21:110:21:14

Maybe before the game, we don't even know.

0:21:140:21:16

They maybe all thought "Who ate all the pies?" And thought,

0:21:160:21:19

"Let's go down to the football,

0:21:190:21:21

"maybe we can check out some suspects over there.

0:21:210:21:24

"Start interrogating individuals."

0:21:250:21:28

So they booked out the whole side of one of the stands

0:21:290:21:33

and they looked around until they saw someone who

0:21:330:21:36

looked like they might know a thing or two about the pies.

0:21:360:21:39

The whereabouts of the pies.

0:21:390:21:41

He looks suspicious, this fellow.

0:21:410:21:44

And they ask him. Everyone asks him in a song.

0:21:450:21:48

It starts off, "Who ate all the pies?" is the first line of the song.

0:21:480:21:53

Which is, you get right to it with Who Ate All The Pies,

0:21:530:21:55

it's the important thing.

0:21:550:21:57

You don't mess around, skirting around the main issue.

0:21:570:22:01

Who ate all the pies?

0:22:010:22:03

And then they needed a second line, and they went,

0:22:050:22:08

"If you can't improve on the first line, why bother?"

0:22:080:22:13

So, second line, just to make it crystal clear what they want to know,

0:22:130:22:17

in case, you don't want to ask a second question on the second line

0:22:170:22:20

and then they answer that and ignore the pressing one that was...

0:22:200:22:23

You know, you don't want to say, "Who ate all the pies?" and then "Have you seen my dog?"

0:22:230:22:27

And they're like, "I'll answer question two and then they'll probably forget about the pie."

0:22:270:22:31

Go straight in there twice - who ate all the pies? Who ate all the pies?

0:22:310:22:35

This is what we want to... Don't even pretend like you don't know what we're talking about.

0:22:350:22:39

That is exactly what we want to know from you.

0:22:390:22:41

Don't pretend like you don't know.

0:22:410:22:43

Who ate all the pies? Who ate all the pies?

0:22:430:22:47

Then...

0:22:470:22:49

There is a twist...

0:22:490:22:51

LAUGHTER

0:22:510:22:52

..that will blow your goddamn mind. You won't even...

0:22:520:22:55

I never saw this twist coming, you probably won't either.

0:22:550:22:58

They reveal that they actually knew all along...

0:22:580:23:01

..from the start...

0:23:020:23:03

..who ate all the pies. They all knew it.

0:23:040:23:08

They all knew, every single one of them knew.

0:23:080:23:11

And they were asking him just to see what he'd do, but then they go,

0:23:110:23:17

"Guess what, mate? It was you. You did it.

0:23:170:23:20

"You're the person we're asking."

0:23:200:23:22

It's always the person you least suspect.

0:23:220:23:24

Who would expect themselves in that situation?

0:23:240:23:27

"You ate all the pies,

0:23:270:23:28

"and our evidence for this is that you are a fat bastard.

0:23:280:23:32

"That is all the evidence we need to bring to the table.

0:23:320:23:36

"You're a fat bastard and you ate all the pies. Get out of that one.

0:23:360:23:40

"Try and... No, you may not see your lawyer."

0:23:400:23:43

LAUGHTER

0:23:430:23:45

My favourite football chant,

0:23:460:23:48

I would say, is my home town team, Kettering Town.

0:23:480:23:53

Kettering Town FC. That chant is brilliant, isn't it?

0:23:530:23:55

You all love it.

0:23:550:23:57

LAUGHTER

0:23:570:23:58

All of you love that one, I don't have to explain it to you

0:23:580:24:01

like I did Who Ate All The Pies, which you hadn't heard before.

0:24:010:24:04

We all know Kettering Town FC's football chant, don't we? It goes:

0:24:040:24:07

HE CHANTS: K and an E and a T and a T

0:24:070:24:09

E and an R and an I-N-G.

0:24:090:24:11

T and an O and W-N.

0:24:110:24:13

Kettering Town FC!

0:24:130:24:15

LAUGHTER

0:24:160:24:17

It's a good song, isn't it? You don't hear it enough these days.

0:24:200:24:23

Radio plays all the commercial shit,

0:24:230:24:25

but, like, that's a good song.

0:24:250:24:28

What's an even better song is my version of it.

0:24:280:24:31

I done a real clever version, a little remix, if you will.

0:24:310:24:34

Basically, what happens is,

0:24:340:24:36

I just sing that song over and over again on a loop,

0:24:360:24:40

but each time I go round I miss out an extra letter each time.

0:24:400:24:44

Like Heads, Shoulders Knees And Toes, that kind of...

0:24:440:24:46

That's the level I'm working on when I was writing the song.

0:24:460:24:49

Sing it over and over again.

0:24:490:24:51

It's a bit hard to get it in your head explaining it.

0:24:510:24:53

I'll perform it to you now.

0:24:530:24:54

I'd like to perform it here in this lovely theatre,

0:24:540:24:57

and you look like you'd enjoy it the most, mate,

0:24:570:24:59

so I'm going to aim it entirely at you. So that's fine.

0:24:590:25:02

LAUGHTER

0:25:020:25:04

-So, here we go. What's your name?

-Rob.

-Rob.

0:25:040:25:08

Yeah. You found your name real funny there, Rob, that was sweet.

0:25:080:25:13

Isn't that nice? If only we all had that kind of character.

0:25:130:25:17

I'd be at a party. "What's your name?"

0:25:170:25:19

"James. Oh! That's made my own night."

0:25:190:25:21

It'd be good, wouldn't it? Wish we were all more like Rob, actually.

0:25:210:25:26

Here we go. Kettering Town FC song, Acaster remix.

0:25:290:25:33

HE CHANTS: # K and an E and a T and a T E and an R and an I-N-G

CHEERING DROWNS SPEECH

0:27:210:27:24

Deserved. Deserved applause. I wrote it.

0:27:240:27:28

Ladies and gentlemen, what a lovely, lovely audience you've been.

0:27:360:27:39

Thank you very much for coming. See you another time. Peace!
