'Ladies and gentlemen,

0:00:090:00:12

'please give a big Christmas welcome to Michael McIntyre!'

0:00:120:00:17

Bravo!

0:00:170:00:19

What do you know?

0:00:190:00:22

Good evening! Hello!

0:00:220:00:25

Bravo, let's have it!

0:00:250:00:28

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to my Comedy Roadshow.

0:00:280:00:34

Right here in my favourite festival of them all, it's Christmas!

0:00:360:00:42

APPLAUSE

0:00:420:00:46

Christmas, all happening now, innit? It's all happening.

0:00:460:00:49

All the women,

0:00:490:00:50

you can see they get that sort of organisational look in their eye.

0:00:500:00:56

Just completely obsessed with planning.

0:00:560:00:58

I've got to get ready! Got so much to think about.

0:00:580:01:01

It happens at the final firework on fireworks night,

0:01:010:01:04

when you have the finale... Pttfft!

0:01:040:01:07

The smoke clears and you see all the women going, "Christmas!"

0:01:070:01:10

LAUGHTER

0:01:100:01:13

"Got to start getting ready for Christmas now. Christmas is coming.

0:01:130:01:17

"Don't talk to me, I'm thinking, I'm planning!

0:01:170:01:19

"There's so much to do, darling!"

0:01:190:01:21

LAUGHTER

0:01:210:01:24

Men do the tree.

0:01:240:01:26

I love getting my tree and putting my tree up in my house.

0:01:260:01:29

"Come, darling, see the tree I chose. Big, bushy tree."

0:01:290:01:34

Then you decorate it, it looks beautiful, doesn't it?

0:01:340:01:36

One of the main things to do when decorating a tree,

0:01:360:01:39

as we all know, you have to make sure that the plug is at the back,

0:01:390:01:42

so it doesn't ruin the aesthetic.

0:01:420:01:44

The problem is that every night you leave it on, cos it looks so lovely

0:01:440:01:47

then you're halfway up the stairs and you stop and you think...

0:01:470:01:51

"There could be a fire."

0:01:510:01:53

Which means that literally, every night of December before bed,

0:01:530:01:57

I'm downstairs under the tree...

0:01:570:01:59

LAUGHTER

0:01:590:02:03

"Darling, can you help me? I can't reach the button.

0:02:030:02:06

"Button!"

0:02:060:02:08

I tell you what,

0:02:120:02:13

December, prime-time for Sellotape and scissors.

0:02:130:02:18

It's when these two really come into their own, isn't it?

0:02:180:02:21

Everyone in this room has Sellotape and scissors.

0:02:210:02:24

You think you know where they are.

0:02:240:02:27

They're probably not there.

0:02:270:02:29

They're always on the move.

0:02:290:02:31

You're going, "I know where my Sellotape and scissors are."

0:02:310:02:34

But not when you want them, not when you bloody want them!

0:02:340:02:37

You open the drawer. "I thought they... Who's moved the scissors?!"

0:02:370:02:40

They move on their own, scissors. They're crafty little bastards.

0:02:400:02:43

And Sellotape, as soon as you leave Sellotape unattended,

0:02:430:02:46

it'll wind itself up when you're not looking.

0:02:460:02:48

Days on end in December are spent with me just looking round the tape.

0:02:480:02:53

"How could this have happened?

0:02:530:02:55

"Surely, soon, soon I will find a way.

0:02:550:02:57

"I think I've been here now for three days."

0:02:580:03:00

And then you find it. "Finally! I'm in!"

0:03:000:03:03

And you get some kind of weird backward triangle bit.

0:03:030:03:07

"I'm not in. I thought I was in, but I'm not in!"

0:03:070:03:09

Sometimes you give up.

0:03:110:03:12

"I'm not going to look for the scissors any more.

0:03:120:03:15

"I'm going to buy new scissors, I don't care.

0:03:150:03:17

"I don't need to spend my life looking for scissors.

0:03:170:03:19

"I'm going to get new scissors." You think you've won, don't you?

0:03:190:03:22

You get new scissors.

0:03:220:03:24

"I got some new scissors, forget the old scissors,

0:03:240:03:26

"I'm not going to spend my life looking for those babies.

0:03:260:03:28

"Here's my new scissors."

0:03:280:03:29

Then you realise the scissors

0:03:290:03:32

come in a plastic packaging that closely...

0:03:320:03:35

closely covers the scissors.

0:03:350:03:37

And you can't get in unless you have scissors.

0:03:370:03:42

LAUGHTER

0:03:420:03:43

The very thing you need is staring at you through the plastic window.

0:03:430:03:49

They look at you, don't they? "Find a way in, dickhead!

0:03:490:03:52

"You can't, can you?

0:03:520:03:54

"Go on, find your old scissors. You thought you'd won!

0:03:540:03:57

"You haven't won. We've won. The scissors have won."

0:03:570:04:00

Most people use scissors in the classic way, don't they?

0:04:020:04:05

They cut. You know how to use scissors.

0:04:050:04:07

You get paper, you see how much you might need,

0:04:070:04:10

then you start cutting like that. That's how people cut.

0:04:100:04:12

But there are some people amongst us, gifted, special people...

0:04:120:04:17

The gliders.

0:04:170:04:19

LAUGHTER

0:04:190:04:21

These people are amazing.

0:04:210:04:23

Hidden within normal society...

0:04:230:04:25

Sss!

0:04:250:04:28

LAUGHTER

0:04:280:04:31

Sss!

0:04:310:04:33

Some can even do the ribbon thing.

0:04:330:04:36

Sss, prr-prr!

0:04:360:04:37

Most of us, we're not gifted in this way.

0:04:390:04:42

But every single year,

0:04:420:04:44

each and every non-gifted glider attempts the glide.

0:04:440:04:48

You make sure nobody is looking.

0:04:500:04:52

You try and do something you've seen others do.

0:04:520:04:54

I think you probably just push it there...

0:04:540:04:57

Bfft! "I've ruined the paper! I've ruined the paper!

0:04:570:05:01

"It was supposed to go "Sss" and it went "Bffp!"

0:05:010:05:04

"I will save my next attempt for next year!"

0:05:040:05:06

It's for the kids, isn't it, Christmas?

0:05:100:05:13

Christmas, it's a time for the kids.

0:05:130:05:14

And there are people in this room who do have children

0:05:140:05:17

and there are people in this room who don't.

0:05:170:05:19

CHEERING

0:05:190:05:21

And the people who don't have children,

0:05:210:05:24

they think they know, don't they?

0:05:240:05:25

They think they know what it means to have children.

0:05:250:05:28

Sometimes they chat about it in their couples.

0:05:280:05:30

"Oh, I'd love to start a family one day with you, it'd be lovely.

0:05:300:05:33

"You'd make a really good dad."

0:05:330:05:35

"I think you'd be an amazing mum.

0:05:350:05:36

"Wouldn't be so lovely,

0:05:360:05:37

"having little versions of you and me running around?

0:05:370:05:40

"I'd love to have a family."

0:05:400:05:42

And you think you know what you're talking about!

0:05:420:05:46

You have no idea! You have no idea what it's like.

0:05:460:05:50

You have no idea how difficult things will become in your life.

0:05:500:05:54

Things that you don't even consider to be things

0:05:540:05:57

will become nearly impossible when you have children.

0:05:570:05:59

I'm talking about things like leaving the house, for example.

0:05:590:06:03

This is how people without children leave the house...

0:06:040:06:07

"Shall we leave the house?"

0:06:070:06:09

"Yes."

0:06:090:06:10

This is how I leave the house almost every day.

0:06:180:06:19

"Lucas! Oscar! Come downstairs!

0:06:190:06:22

"We're late. Why aren't you downstairs? Put your shoes on."

0:06:220:06:25

"I don't know where my shoes are!"

0:06:250:06:27

"Put your shoes on.

0:06:270:06:28

"Go and find your shoes. Where did you see them last?"

0:06:280:06:31

"On my feet."

0:06:310:06:33

"After that?! Get your shoes on. Come here, come here.

0:06:330:06:35

"Arms up, arms up, arms in, arms in, arms up, arms up, arms in, arms in."

0:06:350:06:39

That's my wife. She's so tired, she can't dress herself.

0:06:390:06:43

"What arms? Darling, where are we going? I want to go to bed."

0:06:450:06:49

"Where are we going?"

0:06:490:06:50

"You've got Lucas's shoes on your hands.

0:06:500:06:52

"I found your shoes, darling.

0:06:520:06:53

"You put your shoes on. Where's Ozzie? Come downstairs! We're late!

0:06:530:06:57

"Put your coat on."

0:06:570:06:58

"I don't want to wear my coat."

0:06:580:07:00

You know people without children, you know how you do zips up?

0:07:000:07:04

I've seen how much time you have in your lives, how you focus on it.

0:07:040:07:08

You get the one with the fabric, you just pop it in, don't you?

0:07:080:07:11

It nestles in and then you pause, thinking about your free life

0:07:110:07:14

and what you might like to do later that day.

0:07:140:07:17

And then you just glide up, don't you?

0:07:170:07:20

Do you think I have time for that shit in my life?

0:07:200:07:22

Every single morning,

0:07:220:07:24

"Argh!

0:07:240:07:25

"Stay still!

0:07:250:07:27

"You'll have to put another coat on. I've ruined the zip.

0:07:310:07:34

"I've made the situation worse. Ozzie!"

0:07:340:07:35

My three-year-old will never come downstairs.

0:07:350:07:39

The only way to get him to leave the house is to bluff,

0:07:390:07:42

to pretend we're leaving without him,

0:07:420:07:43

It's the only way it'll work.

0:07:430:07:45

We have to all go, "Bye, Ozzie, we're all going."

0:07:450:07:47

My other son loves it, the six-year-old.

0:07:470:07:49

"Are we leaving Ozzie? Is he going to stay here? I hate him!"

0:07:490:07:52

"Don't be so rude about your brother. Say goodbye.

0:07:520:07:55

"We're not really leaving, we're pretending to leave. Say goodbye.

0:07:550:07:58

"Bye-bye, Ozzie, bye-bye!"

0:07:580:07:59

But he doesn't care, he just goes, "Bye-bye."

0:07:590:08:03

LAUGHTER

0:08:030:08:05

Then we have to come back in and explain,

0:08:050:08:06

"We're not really leaving, we love you."

0:08:060:08:08

"It's OK, I'll buy you something if you come."

0:08:080:08:11

This is every single time we leave the house.

0:08:110:08:14

The other day, I had enough. I said,

0:08:140:08:15

"I can't do this. We're bluffing, saying bye-bye to him."

0:08:150:08:18

My wife says, "Let's go and get him."

0:08:180:08:20

I'm like, "Stop, no... No, stop.

0:08:200:08:22

"I cannot go through this every single time we leave the house.

0:08:220:08:26

"He's driving me insane.

0:08:260:08:28

"I say we call his bluff. I think he has to learn a lesson, OK?

0:08:280:08:33

"Let's go, let's just go.

0:08:330:08:34

"Let's go to Corfu, let's have a nice holiday."

0:08:340:08:36

LAUGHTER

0:08:360:08:40

You've no idea what it's like. You childless people, you have no idea.

0:08:400:08:45

Driving, you go driving, you drive in cars, don't you?

0:08:450:08:49

What's the biggest drama you have to put up with?

0:08:490:08:51

"Oh, it's a bit chilly. Put the blower on. Oh, that's nice now.

0:08:510:08:55

"Oh, look, they've opened a new Carluccio's. We should go there.

0:08:550:08:58

"We could go there any night. We could go there any night.

0:08:580:09:02

"What's this song? I love this one."

0:09:020:09:05

# Freedom! Freedom! #

0:09:050:09:08

I strap my children into the car,

0:09:090:09:12

I work out what'll cut off the blood supply and I ease it a bit.

0:09:120:09:15

"Stay there!"

0:09:150:09:18

We try and behave normally. "Oh, what's this song?"

0:09:180:09:20

It's "The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round..."

0:09:200:09:23

"Again, again!"

0:09:230:09:25

"Look, darling, there's a new Carluccio's there."

0:09:250:09:28

"We will never go there."

0:09:280:09:30

The other day I was checking my children in the rear-view mirror

0:09:310:09:34

to see that they're safe.

0:09:340:09:36

We're on the motorway, OK.

0:09:360:09:37

You angle it to check they're OK, because you're looking after them.

0:09:370:09:41

Neither of them were there.

0:09:410:09:43

They had both wound the windows down

0:09:430:09:45

and had their heads on the motorway out of the window, going,

0:09:450:09:49

"Yay!"

0:09:490:09:51

Both of them, either side. "Yay!"

0:09:510:09:54

My wife and I just lost it. "Get in the car!"

0:09:540:09:57

They can't hear us, they're having the times of their lives.

0:09:570:10:00

"Yay! Daddy, what are you saying, Daddy?"

0:10:000:10:03

On the motorway, going 80mph,

0:10:030:10:06

I had to stick my head out of my window

0:10:060:10:09

to try and communicate with my child.

0:10:090:10:11

"Get in the car!"

0:10:110:10:13

"What are you saying?"

0:10:130:10:14

My wife's doing it too. "Get in the car!"

0:10:140:10:16

"What is it, Mummy?"

0:10:160:10:18

All four of us had our heads out of the window.

0:10:180:10:21

APPLAUSE

0:10:210:10:23

Meanwhile, a childless couple is driving past.

0:10:260:10:29

"Oh, look at the kids. I'd love to start a family one day."

0:10:290:10:32

You have no idea what you're talking about!

0:10:320:10:36

Sleeping? Ha ha ha ha!

0:10:360:10:40

Sleeping at night?

0:10:400:10:42

People without children, most nights, yeah?

0:10:420:10:45

"Good night, darling, good night."

0:10:450:10:47

Sometimes you go, "Sleep well".

0:10:470:10:50

And the other one goes, "I will."

0:10:500:10:53

That's how cocky, how arrogant you are. "I will, I know I will."

0:10:530:10:57

"Good night, darling. Have a good sleep."

0:10:570:11:00

"Good night."

0:11:000:11:02

It's been a long time

0:11:020:11:03

since my wife and I said "good night" to each other, OK?

0:11:030:11:07

Now we just go "Good luck."

0:11:070:11:10

APPLAUSE

0:11:100:11:13

"Good luck to you as well."

0:11:130:11:15

All through the night, they're screaming,

0:11:150:11:18

"Daddy! Daddy! Mummy! Mummy!"

0:11:180:11:20

Sometimes they wake up, wide awake, in the middle of the night.

0:11:200:11:23

I'm asleep. It's like two o'clock in the morning,

0:11:230:11:25

you know, sometimes you don't realise it,

0:11:250:11:27

but you half open your eyes.

0:11:270:11:28

I half open my eyes, my son is in my face.

0:11:280:11:31

"Argh!

0:11:310:11:33

"What the hell are you doing here? What time is it? What time is it?

0:11:330:11:36

"It's two in the morning, what do you want?"

0:11:360:11:38

"I want to go to school."

0:11:380:11:41

"You want to go to school?! What are you talking about?

0:11:410:11:43

"Go back to bed."

0:11:430:11:45

"I've got my shoes on."

0:11:450:11:46

"You do. You found your shoes!"

0:11:460:11:49

"I fixed my jacket."

0:11:500:11:51

"How the hell did you...? It's done up! What are you doing?

0:11:510:11:54

"It's two o'clock, you idiot! Go to bed! Where's Ozzie?"

0:11:540:11:57

"He's by the front door."

0:11:570:11:58

"He's never been there in his life! It's two in the morning!"

0:11:580:12:02

APPLAUSE

0:12:020:12:05

You have no idea.

0:12:050:12:06

OK, well. My first guest is literally a legend of British comedy

0:12:080:12:14

and I've been convincing him for most of the year to do the show.

0:12:140:12:18

Thankfully, he's agreed and I'm so honoured.

0:12:180:12:21

Please welcome, the magnificent Jack Dee is here, ladies and gentlemen.

0:12:210:12:25

# Santa Claus is coming to town

0:12:250:12:27

# Santa Claus is coming to town

0:12:270:12:30

# Santa Claus is coming to town... #

0:12:300:12:35

APPLAUSE

0:12:350:12:37

Thank you, Michael McIntyre.

0:12:440:12:47

Let's hear it for Michael, he's done a great job.

0:12:470:12:50

APPLAUSE

0:12:500:12:52

You know, when he asked me to do the show

0:12:520:12:55

I just said, "if there's anything I can do to help spread the cheer."

0:12:550:12:59

LAUGHTER

0:12:590:13:01

I remember this time last year, big row in my household,

0:13:030:13:09

had the Grand Theft Auto row with my teenage sons...

0:13:090:13:13

"Why can't I have Grand Theft Auto?"

0:13:130:13:15

"Because it's inappropriate. It's horrible, violent, misogynist."

0:13:150:13:19

"Please! You'll ruin Christmas if I can't have it!"

0:13:190:13:22

"I'm not buying you that game,

0:13:220:13:23

"I'm not buying it for Christmas, it's a violent game.

0:13:230:13:26

"It's not fun when you can run people over for extra points

0:13:260:13:29

"and shoot people just for fun."

0:13:290:13:31

"But all my mates have got it! You don't understand!"

0:13:310:13:34

It went on and on and on.

0:13:340:13:36

In the end they gave up and bought it for me, but it was, you know...

0:13:360:13:40

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:13:400:13:42

Christmas shopping,

0:13:450:13:46

those are the words that I really dread with Christmas shopping -

0:13:460:13:50

"Is it a gift?"

0:13:500:13:53

"No, I wear nighties."

0:13:530:13:55

LAUGHTER

0:13:550:13:58

"Give it here, I'll wear it out of the shop now."

0:13:580:14:01

LAUGHTER

0:14:010:14:03

I remember one year, the must-have present, my kids were after it,

0:14:030:14:06

and they were desperate for... What the hell are they called?

0:14:060:14:09

You have to pet them and look after them and feed them

0:14:090:14:12

and stroke them and love them and if you leave them alone,

0:14:120:14:15

then they start pining and if you neglect them they stop working...

0:14:150:14:18

Guinea pigs, that's it, guinea pigs!

0:14:180:14:20

LAUGHTER

0:14:200:14:23

That was a bit of a sad one.

0:14:230:14:25

Came back from our New Year's holiday, just wasn't working at all.

0:14:250:14:29

Tried new batteries, everything.

0:14:290:14:32

You know what I did this year?

0:14:350:14:37

This is a great tip - you might want to do this.

0:14:370:14:39

I've attached a shredder to my front door.

0:14:390:14:43

All the Christmas cards just go straight in there. Bzzt!

0:14:430:14:46

Bzzt!

0:14:460:14:47

Postman comes up, "What's that?"

0:14:470:14:50

"Don't worry, just keep doing it." Bzzt!

0:14:500:14:53

LAUGHTER

0:14:530:14:55

Because, you know, what a hassle, aren't they, Christmas cards?

0:14:580:15:01

You've got to open them and read them and see who they're from

0:15:010:15:04

and find somewhere to put it on the mantelpiece, line them up

0:15:040:15:09

and some idiot opens a door too quickly, they all go ff-ff...

0:15:090:15:12

That's it. Christmas ruined.

0:15:120:15:14

"Look at that, got to do that again now, you idiot."

0:15:140:15:17

Better than the e-card. You open up an e-mail, there's an e-card?

0:15:190:15:22

That's the card that says "I care", isn't it?

0:15:220:15:25

I care...click, click...that much.

0:15:250:15:28

Or worse, people now,

0:15:280:15:30

they're putting glitter and tinsel and stuff inside the card.

0:15:300:15:33

You open it up all innocently... "Oh, for Christ's sake!"

0:15:330:15:37

LAUGHTER

0:15:370:15:40

"Hiya! What are you doing this year?"

0:15:400:15:42

"Well, I'm hoovering now, aren't I?"

0:15:420:15:45

APPLAUSE

0:15:450:15:47

These people who claim their pets give them presents as well.

0:15:520:15:58

That's pretty hard to take, isn't it?

0:15:580:16:00

"We had a lovely Christmas and Tabby bought me this lovely mug

0:16:000:16:04

"with World's Best Cat Owner written on it."

0:16:040:16:07

"Did he? Your cat bought you a present? Are you sure about that?

0:16:070:16:12

"The cat got his little wallet, went out, got on the bus,

0:16:120:16:15

"went to the shops?"

0:16:150:16:17

"No, thanks, just browsing.

0:16:170:16:19

"I'll have one of those mugs with... Because I can read as well!"

0:16:190:16:24

I suggest it wasn't really a present from the cat

0:16:240:16:26

unless it's a robin with its innards sucked out.

0:16:260:16:29

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:16:290:16:33

You've been a lovely audience.

0:16:340:16:36

Thank you very much and enjoy Christmas. Have a good New Year.

0:16:360:16:39

Thank you very much.

0:16:390:16:41

APPLAUSE

0:16:410:16:43

The wonderful Jack Dee, ladies and gentlemen! We're off!

0:16:450:16:49

Jack Dee was here! That's the way we roll!

0:16:490:16:52

Now, we're going to play a little bit of Christmas music...

0:16:550:16:59

AUDIENCE: Woo!

0:16:590:17:00

..to get us in the mood.

0:17:000:17:02

Some of my favourites, starting with an absolute classic.

0:17:020:17:05

MUSIC: "Driving Home For Christmas" by Chris Rea

0:17:050:17:09

No-one has been more thrilled to be stuck in traffic than Chris Rea.

0:17:090:17:15

Isn't he just so...?

0:17:150:17:18

He loves his family so much!

0:17:180:17:21

Top-to-toe in tailbacks, but that doesn't perturb Chris Rea.

0:17:210:17:24

Cos it's Christmas and he loves his family!

0:17:240:17:28

# I'm driving home for Christmas... #

0:17:280:17:30

But then, you see, we all feel this way about Christmas...

0:17:320:17:38

leading up to Christmas.

0:17:380:17:40

But then Christmas Day comes, doesn't it?

0:17:400:17:42

And there always comes that point when you've eaten too much

0:17:420:17:45

and you've been getting pissed since breakfast.

0:17:450:17:48

You've made the mistake

0:17:480:17:49

of thinking a champagne at breakfast was a good idea.

0:17:490:17:52

Now you have a headache, you're sitting at the table.

0:17:520:17:54

The Christmas-scented candles

0:17:540:17:57

are mixing in now with the post-Brussels sprout farts.

0:17:570:18:01

And you just stare individually at everyone at the table.

0:18:010:18:05

And you think, "This is why I don't talk to you people

0:18:060:18:09

"for most of the year."

0:18:090:18:12

I think Chris Rea felt the same way because the following year,

0:18:120:18:15

with regards to the same journey, he released this...

0:18:150:18:18

# This is the road to hell... #

0:18:180:18:21

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:18:210:18:25

We listen to at Christmas...

0:18:260:18:28

Every December we listen to the same music over and over again.

0:18:280:18:31

And it does work. It makes it feel Christmassy

0:18:310:18:33

and we have our favourites and the ones that we don't like so much.

0:18:330:18:36

Shops next door to each other, you hear different songs.

0:18:360:18:39

In a department store, you'll hear two or three at the same time

0:18:390:18:42

and you just go into this weird Christmas zombie.

0:18:420:18:45

And there are certain lyrics to Christmas songs

0:18:450:18:47

and every time I hear them,

0:18:470:18:49

they just annoy me, like this, for example...

0:18:490:18:51

# With logs on the fire

0:18:510:18:54

# And gifts on the tree... #

0:18:540:18:56

Under the tree, Cliff, come on!

0:18:560:18:59

You're supposed to own Christmas, Cliff Richard,

0:19:010:19:04

you don't even know where the presents go!

0:19:040:19:06

Just how much of Christmas has Cliff got wrong?

0:19:060:19:09

Is he putting the turkey on top of the tree?

0:19:090:19:12

Is he stuffing the crackers? Is he wearing the stockings?

0:19:120:19:15

"These things are kind of hard to walk in, guys,

0:19:150:19:17

"with the tangerines in the bottom, yeah!"

0:19:170:19:20

# Last Christmas I gave you my heart

0:19:240:19:26

# But the very next day You gave it away... #

0:19:260:19:32

That's the fleeting nature of cruising, George.

0:19:320:19:36

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:19:360:19:38

Ladies and gentlemen, are you ready for my next guest?

0:19:420:19:44

CHEERING

0:19:440:19:47

My show has been running for two series,

0:19:470:19:50

and the very, very first show we ever had,

0:19:500:19:53

I put on my very favourite comedian to headline the show,

0:19:530:19:57

and I thought it'd be fitting

0:19:570:19:59

for him to come back for the Christmas Special.

0:19:590:20:01

Please welcome the fantastic Mr Rhod Gilbert!

0:20:010:20:04

# Snow is falling all around me

0:20:040:20:08

# Children playing, having fun... #

0:20:080:20:12

Hello!

0:20:140:20:16

HELLO!

0:20:160:20:18

Good evening. Merry Christmas!

0:20:200:20:22

ALL: Merry Christmas.

0:20:220:20:23

Anybody else get rubbish presents? CHEERING

0:20:230:20:26

How tight is this? How tight is this?

0:20:260:20:29

One year my parents got me Hide And Seek for Christmas!

0:20:290:20:33

That's taking the mick, isn't it?

0:20:350:20:36

You can't give somebody Hide And Seek -

0:20:360:20:39

it's just an idea that's been around for hundreds of years.

0:20:390:20:42

My mum went, "It's the thought that counts."

0:20:420:20:45

"Well, I've got a thought, Mum - you're going into a home."

0:20:450:20:47

How about that?

0:20:470:20:49

I always seem to get the rubbish...

0:20:490:20:51

I give people good things - it's not that problem of...

0:20:510:20:54

I gave my girlfriend an iPad. You know what she gave me?

0:20:540:20:58

She gave me a toothbrush.

0:20:580:21:01

Firstly, you cheeky cow, it's like giving somebody deodorant.

0:21:010:21:04

This is... I wouldn't have minded an ordinary toothbrush.

0:21:040:21:09

This is the monstrosity she got me.

0:21:090:21:12

I said, "How much did you spend on this?"

0:21:120:21:14

She said, "It was on sale - it was very cheap. It was only £179.99."

0:21:140:21:20

I said, "Oh, well!

0:21:200:21:22

"A toothbrush for under 200 quid certainly sounds like a bargain!

0:21:220:21:25

"You've certainly saved us a few quid there

0:21:250:21:28

"with your bargain-hunting, haven't you?

0:21:280:21:30

"Toothbrush for under 200 quid..." She said, "But it IS a bargain!

0:21:300:21:35

"Look, it's awesome! It's the best you can get.

0:21:350:21:38

"It's got a rechargeable brush, it's got five brushing modes,

0:21:380:21:41

"it's got a computer! Look, it's got an on-board computer."

0:21:410:21:45

I said, "That's different if it's got a computer,

0:21:450:21:47

"cos at the moment I'm using a separate toothbrush and laptop.

0:21:470:21:50

"It's pretty straightforward

0:21:500:21:52

"to get everything onto the toothbrush, is it?"

0:21:520:21:56

"Do I just put it all on a USB stick

0:21:560:21:59

"and copy it onto the toothbrush?"

0:21:590:22:02

She said, "I don't think it's a computer in that way."

0:22:020:22:05

I said, "I mainly do word processing. Has it got Word or Office?"

0:22:050:22:08

She said, "No." I said, "What about the internet?

0:22:080:22:11

"Can I go online, check my emails?" She said, "I don't think so."

0:22:110:22:14

"Has it got Bluetooth? Has it got a DVD drive?

0:22:140:22:17

"How many USB ports has it got? Has it got iTunes?"

0:22:170:22:20

She said, "No, it doesn't do any of that."

0:22:200:22:22

I said, "Would you mind telling me, for the love of God,

0:22:220:22:25

"for £179.99, what this toothbrush-computer does?!"

0:22:250:22:29

You know what she said?

0:22:290:22:31

She said, "It tells you how many times you've used the toothbrush."

0:22:310:22:34

It tells you how many times you've used the toothbrush!

0:22:380:22:41

At last, I can stop taking an abacus into the bathroom.

0:22:410:22:45

No longer do I have to scratch five-bar gates

0:22:460:22:49

into the bathroom walls.

0:22:490:22:50

At last I can throw out all the paper tooth-cleaning records

0:22:500:22:54

I've been keeping.

0:22:540:22:56

Am I missing something here?

0:22:560:22:58

Why would you want to know how many times you've used your toothbrush?

0:22:580:23:01

She said, "It's so you know when to buy a new toothbrush."

0:23:010:23:04

I said, "I know!"

0:23:040:23:06

Maybe I'm unusually gifted - call me the Toothbrush Whisperer -

0:23:060:23:10

but I know when to buy a new toothbrush.

0:23:100:23:13

I buy a new one when the one I'm using starts looking

0:23:130:23:16

less like Ken Barlow and more like Ken Dodd. That's when I know!

0:23:160:23:20

I know! I know!

0:23:200:23:22

She said, "But it's got a timer on it."

0:23:220:23:24

I said, "Oh, well, I take it all back! If it's got a timer on it,

0:23:240:23:28

"that changes everything.

0:23:280:23:29

"Only this morning, I fancied a boiled egg

0:23:290:23:31

"but I didn't have a toothbrush handy to time it."

0:23:310:23:34

"I tried timing it on a loofah, but the yolk was still runny."

0:23:340:23:38

She said, "You don't understand.

0:23:380:23:40

"With a timer, it knows how long you've been brushing your teeth."

0:23:400:23:44

I said, "So do I. Again, I know. I was there when I started!"

0:23:440:23:48

"I kicked off the whole tooth-brushing thing..."

0:23:480:23:51

What's the worst that can happen if I forget

0:23:510:23:54

when I started brushing my teeth?

0:23:540:23:56

I lose track of time and plough on into the night?!

0:23:560:24:00

Brushing through the following day and the day after...

0:24:000:24:03

Day after day, relentless.

0:24:030:24:06

Two weeks later, my neighbours have started to worry

0:24:060:24:08

cos they haven't seen me for a fortnight

0:24:080:24:10

and there's a weird froth bubbling out of the bathroom window.

0:24:100:24:14

The froth comes out of the bathroom window, into the street.

0:24:140:24:17

Drivers are abandoning their vehicles

0:24:170:24:20

because visibility is reduced to a couple of feet.

0:24:200:24:23

Disoriented foam-covered drivers, staggering helplessly,

0:24:230:24:29

their eyes burning with peppermint...

0:24:290:24:32

Search and rescue helicopters whirr overhead.

0:24:340:24:37

News teams from around the globe arrive on my doorstep.

0:24:370:24:41

Eventually, riot police break down my door to find me

0:24:410:24:44

in a foam-filled bathroom in blood-soaked pyjamas,

0:24:440:24:49

still brushing a toothless, gummy, gaping hole

0:24:490:24:53

where my face used to be.

0:24:530:24:56

Like some kind of minty Danniella Westbrook.

0:24:560:24:59

Ladies and gentlemen, I've got a tangerine to peel.

0:25:060:25:09

Merry, merry Christmas. Cheers!

0:25:090:25:11

Thank you.

0:25:120:25:15

Rhod Gilbert, ladies and gentlemen!

0:25:150:25:18

Thank you! Well done.

0:25:180:25:21

One more time, please, for the fantastic Mr Rhod Gilbert!

0:25:220:25:27

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:25:270:25:29

Christmas Day, of course, is one of the few days when I know the date.

0:25:310:25:35

I don't tend to know the date.

0:25:350:25:36

I know the date on Christmas Day, that's the 25th. I know my birthday.

0:25:360:25:39

And then maybe New Year's Day.

0:25:390:25:42

Other than that, I depend on other people for the date.

0:25:420:25:44

If I don't know the date, I just ask another human for the date.

0:25:440:25:47

"Excuse me, have you got the date?" Sometimes they don't know.

0:25:470:25:50

I just ask another human. Sometimes they tell me.

0:25:500:25:53

Sometimes, annoyingly, they don't tell you.

0:25:530:25:55

They tell you a date from the past,

0:25:550:25:57

and it comes with very difficult mathematics

0:25:570:25:59

in order to work out today's date.

0:25:590:26:01

"Excuse me, have you got the date?"

0:26:010:26:02

"No, but last Tuesday was the 14th." Then they walk off.

0:26:020:26:06

You're left there going, "What does that mean to me?!

0:26:060:26:08

"Tuesday, Wednesday, Thurs..."

0:26:080:26:10

You can't do that with the time. "Excuse me, have you got the time?"

0:26:100:26:13

"No, but I know I woke up at 8:11."

0:26:130:26:15

"Really? What happened then? How long was breakfast?"

0:26:150:26:19

I still haven't changed all the clocks since the clocks went back.

0:26:190:26:22

Can I ask, by way of applause,

0:26:220:26:24

who else still hasn't changed all their clocks?

0:26:240:26:26

APPLAUSE RIPPLES

0:26:260:26:27

It's not many. Ruth, which one haven't you changed?

0:26:270:26:31

The cooker! The cooker's really hard, isn't it?

0:26:310:26:35

Cos you lose the instructions and then you're just guessing.

0:26:350:26:37

You're just twiddling that weird loopy arrow thing...

0:26:370:26:41

"How do I do this?!" The bell goes off...

0:26:410:26:42

"I'm not even going to change it, Eamonn!"

0:26:420:26:44

"You can't come to bed unless you've changed the clock, Ruth."

0:26:440:26:47

"Really? Really?"

0:26:470:26:50

The hardest one to change for me looks like the easiest.

0:26:520:26:54

It's just the clock on the wall.

0:26:540:26:56

It's got to be the easiest one to change.

0:26:560:26:59

You take it off, you just twiddle the thing an hour,

0:26:590:27:01

and you think, "That's that."

0:27:010:27:03

Then you have to get it back on the wall.

0:27:030:27:05

There's a nail sticking out the wall,

0:27:050:27:07

and you can see on the back there's a hole.

0:27:070:27:09

You think, "This is going to be... Should just slot straight on.

0:27:090:27:12

"Any moment now, that should just slot itself...

0:27:120:27:16

"I don't really understand why..." You check the hole.

0:27:160:27:18

"There's the hole. There's the...

0:27:180:27:20

"Sooner or later, this'll definitely be..."

0:27:200:27:22

Then you think, "Maybe I can watch it on. I'm watching the hole...

0:27:220:27:27

"I don't understand why... It's still not... Doesn't seem to be..."

0:27:270:27:31

It's almost like there's someone behind the wall, going...

0:27:310:27:35

Now, ladies and gentlemen,

0:27:400:27:42

my next guest is a man who I quite simply...

0:27:420:27:46

My wife and I, every time we watch him on television,

0:27:460:27:49

it's like, "This is the funniest guy out there."

0:27:490:27:51

And I wanted to get him involved in my show.

0:27:510:27:53

And I asked him, and, thankfully, he is here. He is wonderful.

0:27:530:27:58

Ladies and gentlemen, tonight, from the Royal Box...

0:27:580:28:02

CHEERING

0:28:020:28:04

I give you David Mitchell!

0:28:040:28:06

Thank you.

0:28:140:28:16

Today, Christmas Day, is a special day,

0:28:200:28:25

which means it's not normal.

0:28:250:28:28

I am not usually allowed to sit in this box and address the nation,

0:28:290:28:33

because I'm not, yet, Queen.

0:28:330:28:35

But this is all fine,

0:28:370:28:38

because I doubt things are normal where you are either.

0:28:380:28:42

You're probably surrounded by family. The ones you love,

0:28:420:28:46

and the other ones.

0:28:460:28:48

Look around you now, at the ones you love.

0:28:480:28:51

Now look at the other ones.

0:28:510:28:53

That should give you something to talk about.

0:28:530:28:56

So things aren't normal at the moment because of Christmas,

0:28:560:29:00

a religio-retail festival like none other.

0:29:000:29:03

Its rivals just last for a day.

0:29:030:29:05

You get a red rose, pancake, pumpkin, firework or poppy

0:29:050:29:10

and have a bloody good time.

0:29:100:29:12

But for Christmas, everything changes completely for a whole month.

0:29:120:29:17

It's as alien as if we'd suddenly become Germany.

0:29:170:29:21

But it's not Germany, it's Christmas Land.

0:29:210:29:24

So instead of sausages and genocidal guilt,

0:29:240:29:29

we get mulled wine and indoor trees.

0:29:290:29:33

They're an odd bunch, the people of Christmas Land.

0:29:330:29:37

While our popular music tends to centre around empty cliches of love,

0:29:370:29:41

theirs centres around empty cliches of goodwill,

0:29:410:29:45

and is much more likely to mention reindeer,

0:29:450:29:48

an animal with which the people of Christmas Land are obsessed,

0:29:480:29:52

for reasons which still baffle anthropologists.

0:29:520:29:55

Their best guess is that the thing about reindeer

0:29:550:29:58

that the people of Christmas Land most admire is that they can fly.

0:29:580:30:02

What remains unclear is why,

0:30:030:30:05

when selecting an animal to admire for its powers of flight,

0:30:050:30:08

they didn't settle on one that could actually fly.

0:30:080:30:11

Like a robin.

0:30:110:30:13

They're very fond of the robin, but invariably portray it standing still.

0:30:130:30:19

Nothing is more artistic to the people of Christmas Land

0:30:190:30:22

than a painting of a reindeer flying over a static robin.

0:30:220:30:26

They send these pictures to each other on little pieces of card.

0:30:270:30:31

They look at them and they think, "Ah, yes, a typical scene."

0:30:310:30:36

So, clearly Christmas Land faces educational challenges.

0:30:360:30:40

And that's probably because no-one ever goes to school.

0:30:400:30:43

And they hardly go to work.

0:30:430:30:44

If they do, they simply drink heavily and try to cop off with each other.

0:30:440:30:49

But it's not all good news.

0:30:490:30:51

Christmas Land has a dark side.

0:30:510:30:53

Once steamed up on eggnog, they can be warlike people.

0:30:530:30:57

If you're seen eating a salad

0:30:570:30:59

rather than a heavy fruitcake wrapped in disgusting marzipan,

0:30:590:31:02

you may find yourself rebuked with the phrase,

0:31:020:31:05

"That's not very Christmassy!"

0:31:050:31:08

Which gives a troubling glimpse into their nationalistic fervour.

0:31:080:31:11

But, all in all, I enjoy my annual holiday in Christmas Land

0:31:110:31:16

and feel that we have something to learn from these generous,

0:31:160:31:19

musical, family orientated, lazy, argumentative,

0:31:190:31:23

obese, alcoholic and reindeer-obsessed people.

0:31:230:31:26

And they're certainly a lot nicer than their neighbours -

0:31:260:31:29

the tedious, puritanical, impecunious,

0:31:290:31:32

miserable people of January Land,

0:31:320:31:34

who bang on endlessly about their failed diets,

0:31:340:31:37

whilst shaking with nicotine withdrawal.

0:31:370:31:39

Good luck getting a present out of those bastards!

0:31:410:31:44

Merry Christmas!

0:31:440:31:46

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:31:460:31:48

Wonderful! The fantastic Mr David Mitchell.

0:31:500:31:52

Thank you so much! Brilliant.

0:31:520:31:55

Ah, Heston, my man. Heston Blumenthal. Lovin' Heston!

0:31:590:32:02

In fact, I didn't know you were coming, and they just told me,

0:32:020:32:06

so I brought my glasses out, because I have glasses like you.

0:32:060:32:09

People don't know this about me. This is a little bit of an insight.

0:32:090:32:13

A little bit of a revelation. This is me in the day.

0:32:130:32:16

You know, daytime me, not stage me, this is stage me.

0:32:160:32:19

You know this guy, "Hello!"

0:32:190:32:21

That's it. Camper than you'd imagine. "Hi!" Like that.

0:32:210:32:23

This is daytime me. "Hello." Quite serious, less camp.

0:32:230:32:26

This is daytime me. And people who are used to seeing that guy,

0:32:260:32:29

they can't cope with this guy.

0:32:290:32:31

They come up to me, almost on a daily basis, and go,

0:32:310:32:34

"Oh, my God, that's so weird, Oh, my God!"

0:32:340:32:36

"Oh, my God! D'you wear glasses?"

0:32:360:32:41

"Oh, my God! D'you wear glasses?"

0:32:410:32:43

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, that's quite a strange question

0:32:430:32:46

to ask of somebody who has glasses on their face.

0:32:460:32:49

I don't know quite how they expect me to respond.

0:32:490:32:52

"Oh no, I saw Avatar last year,

0:32:520:32:54

"I must have left them... Thank you so much!

0:32:540:32:56

"Silly me!

0:32:560:32:58

"Darling, why didn't you tell me I've been walking around in them?

0:32:580:33:01

"I was supposed to put them in the bin!"

0:33:010:33:02

But some people have glasses for reading, reading glasses.

0:33:050:33:08

They'll have them with them,

0:33:080:33:09

because they never know when reading might occur.

0:33:090:33:12

They go, "I have my reading glasses, just in case reading should happen."

0:33:120:33:15

When reading occurs, it's "Ah! Reading is happening now."

0:33:150:33:19

They tend to make a point with their glasses.

0:33:190:33:21

Reading glasses people feel very powerful with their glasses.

0:33:210:33:24

"Just before I put them on, I'd like to make some additional points."

0:33:240:33:28

Then they open them up, and they have further points with them open.

0:33:280:33:32

They read in this direction,

0:33:320:33:33

all the reading goes here, so I can still see you here.

0:33:330:33:36

"Don't pull anything over there, I'm reading in this direction."

0:33:360:33:39

Not everybody with reading glasses

0:33:390:33:40

from the longsighted fraternity goes with the glasses here.

0:33:400:33:43

People choose to put them in different places on their body.

0:33:430:33:46

Some people, it's difficult to know how to describe them.

0:33:460:33:49

I would say that they're not sexually active,

0:33:490:33:51

I think that would be the most accurate way.

0:33:510:33:54

They must have had sex in their life,

0:33:540:33:56

but they've now moved into a phase, a period of their life

0:33:560:33:58

when they've decided that they won't be having sex any more,

0:33:580:34:01

with people, and they don't want them to want to have sex with them.

0:34:010:34:05

They live a sexless life.

0:34:050:34:07

These people will have a string

0:34:070:34:09

that goes round their neck and joins up on this side

0:34:090:34:12

and they sort of bounce around, on their sexless bodies.

0:34:120:34:17

In case they need to read.

0:34:170:34:19

"Ah! I shall sign the divorce papers, yes, why not? There you go."

0:34:190:34:23

But, without a shadow of a doubt, the coolest,

0:34:230:34:27

no doubt about this, the coolest reading glasses people in the world

0:34:270:34:31

are the people who manage to maintain their glasses,

0:34:310:34:35

on their forehead.

0:34:350:34:37

How cool are these people? How do they even do it?

0:34:370:34:40

They have magnificent eyebrow control.

0:34:400:34:42

They can access them whenever they need to.

0:34:420:34:44

"Would you like to see the wine list?" "Yes, I will!"

0:34:440:34:47

How cool are these guys?

0:34:470:34:48

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:34:480:34:51

Just so you know I can read at any...moment!

0:34:510:34:54

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, on Christmas Day,

0:35:010:35:04

it's Father Christmas.

0:35:040:35:06

CHEERING

0:35:060:35:08

# I don't want a lot for Christmas

0:35:080:35:11

# There is just one thing I need

0:35:110:35:14

# I don't care about those presents

0:35:140:35:17

# Underneath the Christmas tree... #

0:35:170:35:19

He-ey!

0:35:190:35:21

Merry Christmas!

0:35:210:35:24

Ah! Thank you so much!

0:35:240:35:27

Oh, good evening, everybody.

0:35:290:35:31

I'm Father Christmas.

0:35:340:35:36

Joking, I am. I'm not Santa.

0:35:360:35:40

But I have got a bulging sack.

0:35:410:35:44

Louis Walsh's eyes have perked up at that!

0:35:460:35:49

What a night, what a night.

0:35:520:35:54

Christmas night. Best night of the year.

0:35:540:35:56

And hey, look at our audience.

0:35:560:36:00

Some of the biggest names in British show business...

0:36:000:36:04

are at home, watching this right now.

0:36:040:36:06

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:36:060:36:07

Where's the beautiful Carol Vorderman?

0:36:110:36:15

Oh, you do it for me, Carol.

0:36:150:36:18

Carol, you know you do it for me. I've told you before now.

0:36:180:36:21

And the fact that you are, what, 20 feet away from me?

0:36:210:36:25

Proof positive

0:36:250:36:26

that an injunction isn't worth the paper it's written on.

0:36:260:36:30

And I'll be honest, Carol,

0:36:330:36:36

I regret taking it out now, I really do.

0:36:360:36:40

-And you just started on Loose Women.

-I love it.

-I bet you do!

0:36:400:36:44

I started on loose women a long time ago.

0:36:440:36:47

Port Talbot, 1985.

0:36:470:36:49

I'm sensing, I'm smelling somebody Welsh here.

0:36:520:36:56

Where are they?

0:36:560:36:59

Katherine Jenkins.

0:36:590:37:01

And Gethin Jones.

0:37:010:37:04

What a delightful Welsh pair!

0:37:040:37:07

Stop it!

0:37:070:37:09

Stop it, Katherine had the fastest- selling opera album of all time.

0:37:100:37:15

She holds four Guinness World Records,

0:37:150:37:17

and she was the first artist to be number one and two

0:37:170:37:21

in the classical charts at the same time!

0:37:210:37:25

And Gethin?

0:37:250:37:26

Gethin is her fiance.

0:37:260:37:28

Does she sing a lot at home?

0:37:320:37:33

She does, yes.

0:37:330:37:35

IN OPERATIC FALSETTO: # Would you doooo the vacuuuuming?

0:37:350:37:39

# Would you tidy up your rooooom? #

0:37:390:37:43

That's not bad! Come on, Katherine.

0:37:430:37:45

Will you give it back to me?

0:37:450:37:48

# Oh, Katherine

0:37:480:37:51

# Christmas time is special! #

0:37:510:37:55

# Yes, it is! #

0:37:550:37:57

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:37:570:38:00

Oh, yeah, lovely, OK.

0:38:020:38:06

INTRO TO "SHOUT": # We-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-ellll... #

0:38:060:38:14

She's here. She's here. Lulu, how are you?

0:38:140:38:18

I love you.

0:38:180:38:19

You look fantastic.

0:38:210:38:23

You have the glow that can only come

0:38:230:38:26

from having a winter fuel allowance.

0:38:260:38:29

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:38:310:38:32

Oh, my God. Holly Valance. Hey, Holly!

0:38:360:38:40

CROWD CHEER AND WHOOP

0:38:400:38:41

Ah! With her partner, the wonderful Mr Nick Candy.

0:38:410:38:45

We saw you on Strictly.

0:38:450:38:46

You were always there supporting her, that was lovely to see.

0:38:460:38:50

And Holly, you and Nick, I know how much they love Christmas.

0:38:500:38:55

Holly Valance and Nick Candy love Christmas. They're traditionalists.

0:38:550:38:59

I can picture them now. He's admiring the Holly bush...

0:38:590:39:04

LAUGHTER

0:39:040:39:05

..and she's sucking on some Candy.

0:39:050:39:08

It's very...

0:39:080:39:09

No, no, no! No! No, don't, no, no, don't. Don't do that. Stop it.

0:39:090:39:13

Stop twisting it!

0:39:130:39:14

Holly, it's lovely to have you here. All our lovely celebrities,

0:39:160:39:19

give them a big round of applause, and a merry Christmas to you all!

0:39:190:39:23

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:39:230:39:25

Rob Brydon, ladies and gentlemen!

0:39:270:39:29

What do you know?

0:39:310:39:33

That was tense. That was tense with you guys in the front.

0:39:360:39:40

And Gino D'Acampo, so good to see you.

0:39:400:39:44

Everything all right, Gino? This Morning is good?

0:39:440:39:47

I get the feeling that Phil and Holly,

0:39:470:39:49

they just wait for you to say silly things, don't they?

0:39:490:39:52

-And they giggle.

-I just say normal things.

0:39:520:39:54

-You think they're normal things?

-Yes.

0:39:540:39:56

Some words come out a bit... They do come out funny, Gino.

0:39:560:40:00

Can I ask you to say a word?

0:40:000:40:02

I might be wrong, but I heard you say the other day

0:40:020:40:04

and it really made me laugh. Can I ask you to say "household"?

0:40:040:40:07

-Hars'ol.

-Yes. I was right.

0:40:070:40:10

Is there any way we could get a microphone for that?

0:40:180:40:21

We'd love to have a microphone for Gino D'Acampo. I smell comedy.

0:40:210:40:26

It's coming down. It's coming down. Thank you, Lulu.

0:40:300:40:32

Hello.

0:40:340:40:35

It's Gino D'Acampo!

0:40:350:40:36

Gino, sorry. Could I just get you to say the word "household" for me?

0:40:390:40:44

Hars'ol.

0:40:440:40:46

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:40:460:40:47

OK, let's try it in a sentence.

0:40:510:40:54

"Brussels sprouts give me a lot of trouble in my household."

0:40:560:40:59

Brussels sprouts gives me a lot of trouble with my hars'ol.

0:40:590:41:04

That's close.

0:41:040:41:07

I think we won't do this all night, but it is tempting.

0:41:070:41:11

"I love presents, I have piles in my household."

0:41:130:41:17

We'll end on that.

0:41:250:41:27

I love presents, I have piles in my hars'ol.

0:41:270:41:32

OK, that's enough. Thank you so much, Gino.

0:41:330:41:36

I couldn't imagine anything being funnier.

0:41:360:41:39

Ladies and gentlemen, my next guest is quite simply

0:41:420:41:46

one of the greatest stand-up comedians

0:41:460:41:48

working in the country today.

0:41:480:41:50

I am so honoured to have him on my show.

0:41:500:41:52

Please, ladies and gentlemen,

0:41:520:41:54

all your love for the wonderful Sean Lock is here!

0:41:540:41:56

# So here it is, Merry Christmas

0:41:560:42:01

# Everybody's having fun

0:42:010:42:05

# Look to the future now

0:42:050:42:09

# It's only just begun. #

0:42:090:42:15

Thank you. Thank you. So, here it is, Merry Christmas.

0:42:170:42:23

Sometimes I think it would be good to have Christmas every two years,

0:42:230:42:27

just so Noddy Holder finally has to dip into his savings, you know?

0:42:270:42:31

Madonna doesn't celebrate Christmas.

0:42:330:42:35

She doesn't celebrate Christmas because she follows the Kabbalah.

0:42:350:42:38

Which is a religion that even Scientologists think is bollocks.

0:42:380:42:42

I think it's amazing. I mean, she named herself Madonna, didn't she?

0:42:490:42:54

She chose that name. Madonna, after Mary, the mother of Jesus.

0:42:540:42:57

And she doesn't celebrate Christmas.

0:42:570:42:59

It's a bit like finding out Captain Birdseye doesn't like fish.

0:42:590:43:04

Mr Whippy's lactose intolerant.

0:43:040:43:07

She'd be brilliant at Christmas, wouldn't she, with those arms?

0:43:090:43:12

Be a brilliant nutcracker, wouldn't she?

0:43:120:43:14

"There you go!" Kkkhh!

0:43:140:43:16

"Anyone want walnuts? Anyone want walnuts?"

0:43:160:43:18

She's so strong, isn't she? I always think having sex with Madonna

0:43:180:43:22

would be a bit like being wheel-clamped, wouldn't it?

0:43:220:43:25

You'd have to phone a special number to get released.

0:43:280:43:31

Of course, this is a time of year we should think about people

0:43:330:43:36

for whom Christmas isn't a time of joy, celebration and happiness.

0:43:360:43:40

People like my wife, for example.

0:43:400:43:43

I'm always getting it wrong.

0:43:430:43:44

One year I said, "What do you want?" She said, "Surprise me."

0:43:440:43:48

So I phoned her from Morocco.

0:43:480:43:50

I read something the other day, this is true, apparently.

0:43:570:44:00

90% of the toys that will be bought this Christmas are made in China.

0:44:000:44:03

90% of them.

0:44:030:44:05

Which makes the Chinese, technically, elves. Doesn't it?

0:44:050:44:09

They're elves. Whether they like it or not, you're elves.

0:44:170:44:19

I'm sorry, but you're elves.

0:44:190:44:21

When you think, slowly the Chinese are taking over the world,

0:44:210:44:25

maybe Lord Of The Rings isn't such a load of old tosh.

0:44:250:44:28

There might be something in it.

0:44:290:44:31

This year, I've asked for 400 packets of pork scratchings.

0:44:320:44:36

I'm not going to eat them.

0:44:360:44:37

My theory is that basically it's the outside of a pig.

0:44:370:44:40

Pork scratchings are a pig jigsaw, aren't they?

0:44:400:44:43

If you get 400 packets from the same place, you can build a pig.

0:44:500:44:54

The whole family can join in.

0:44:540:44:58

Cos the thing I worry about most at this time of year is my six-pack.

0:44:580:45:01

I worry a lot about my six-pack.

0:45:010:45:03

What are you laughing at? I've got a six-pack.

0:45:030:45:06

The trouble is, mine's in my forehead, look.

0:45:060:45:10

Look at that. That's bad, isn't it, that?

0:45:100:45:12

If you can't see at the back,

0:45:120:45:14

basically, I make Gordon Ramsay look like Hannah Montana.

0:45:140:45:18

Look at it! How did my face get like this?

0:45:200:45:24

What have I seen to pull this expression so much in my life?

0:45:240:45:28

What have I seen?!

0:45:310:45:33

The only explanation for a face like this was if I had amnesia

0:45:330:45:38

and I drove a ghost train.

0:45:380:45:40

I'm sure there's a reason for every single one.

0:45:490:45:51

That one, that's when the council changed the bin collection day.

0:45:510:45:56

This deep one here, there's a deep one here,

0:45:560:45:59

that's caused by man's inhumanity to man.

0:45:590:46:03

Oh, the human race is capable of some terrible things.

0:46:030:46:06

This one's when they changed Jif to Cif.

0:46:060:46:08

You've been a lovely crowd, thank you very much and good night. Thank you.

0:46:110:46:17

The lovely Sean Lock, the fantastic Sean Lock, the hilarious Sean Lock.

0:46:190:46:23

Sean Lock was here!

0:46:230:46:25

OK, now, listen, guys. You're aware that it's Christmas. OK?

0:46:280:46:32

You know, it's a time for people to be together with their loved ones.

0:46:320:46:36

And I was just kind of cheekily trying to take advantage

0:46:360:46:39

of the fact that we have a lot of people here.

0:46:390:46:41

Because, and I'm being serious about this, I have a friend.

0:46:410:46:45

And he is basically looking for love.

0:46:450:46:48

I think he deserves it. He's a good guy. And he is here.

0:46:480:46:53

And I'm going to just ask if perhaps

0:46:530:46:56

I could do a little bit of Christmas matchmaking

0:46:560:46:59

and just ask if there are any single girls in the audience?

0:46:590:47:03

ME!

0:47:030:47:04

Any single girls?

0:47:040:47:07

-Any single girls at all?

-Michael! Michael!

0:47:070:47:10

-ME! ME!

-It could be anybody.

0:47:100:47:12

-Michael!

-There must be somebody... Oh, here!

-I'm desperate!

0:47:120:47:17

-I think we have one.

-I'm desperate!

0:47:170:47:20

All right, then. You can come up. Ladies and gentlemen, a single girl.

0:47:200:47:25

Ha ha ha ha!

0:47:270:47:29

Nice to meet you.

0:47:290:47:32

How are you? Nice to meet you. I'm Michael.

0:47:320:47:35

Thanks for coming up. I know it must be quite nerve-wracking.

0:47:350:47:38

Are you enjoying the show?

0:47:380:47:39

-I love it. Michael McIntyre!

-Can I just ask your name?

0:47:390:47:42

It's Miranda.

0:47:420:47:45

Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to Miranda.

0:47:450:47:48

So, you're obviously single.

0:47:490:47:53

I don't mean obviously!

0:47:530:47:54

-I meant because of what's just gone on.

-Sure. Because of that.

0:47:540:47:59

-Have you been single for a while?

-Many years.

0:47:590:48:03

OK. So, listen, as I say, I've got a friend

0:48:030:48:06

and I'm just wondering what it is that you look for in a man.

0:48:060:48:09

Well, normally I go for quite lithe sportsmen.

0:48:090:48:15

-Sportsmen?

-Yeah, you know that sort of look, lithe and lean?

0:48:150:48:18

But actually, I'm thinking

0:48:180:48:19

I'd probably like someone a bit stockier, a bit chubbier.

0:48:190:48:22

A fat sportsman?

0:48:220:48:24

I'm really looking for a bit of a cheeky geezer type, you know?

0:48:240:48:28

Like me?

0:48:280:48:30

Well... Hmmm.

0:48:300:48:33

No offence, but I have been out with quite a lot of posh boys

0:48:330:48:37

and I do not want to do that again.

0:48:370:48:39

-Oh, OK. I think I'm feeling quietly confident, Miranda.

-Really?

0:48:390:48:43

If I could just ask you maybe to come over here and wait?

0:48:430:48:46

This is Miranda, ladies and gentlemen.

0:48:460:48:49

Who knows? This seems to be going to plan. All right.

0:48:490:48:54

I'm going to bring out my friend, and we'll see if this pans out.

0:48:540:48:59

So, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Smithy.

0:48:590:49:02

All right? All right?

0:49:160:49:19

Smithy, I said I was going to try and sort you out today.

0:49:220:49:25

-I've been true to my word. I got somebody.

-I appreciate it.

0:49:250:49:28

-You all right?

-Yeah, I'm good.

0:49:280:49:30

Listen, beggars can't be choosers and all that.

0:49:300:49:34

But what are you looking for in a girl?

0:49:340:49:37

What am I looking for? I'm not fussy, really.

0:49:370:49:39

I mean...

0:49:390:49:42

The last girl I was with... I wasn't with her, it was weird.

0:49:420:49:46

We weren't, like, together. But she was quite a big girl.

0:49:460:49:50

So I don't mind that. I don't mind if she's big.

0:49:500:49:53

She was quite working class, though.

0:49:530:49:56

So I wouldn't mind if it was someone a bit posher. You know what I mean?

0:49:560:50:02

That would be good. In an ideal world, what would be really great,

0:50:020:50:05

is if I was with someone who was constantly with, like, a film crew,

0:50:050:50:10

who had a camera, and then while we're having a conversation

0:50:100:50:13

she could look down the lens...

0:50:130:50:16

and then tell that lens exactly what she was feeling.

0:50:160:50:19

And then there'd be no games.

0:50:190:50:21

I wouldn't have to read between the lines.

0:50:210:50:23

Cos that can be a nightmare.

0:50:230:50:25

Reading between the lines is a nightmare? Well, listen.

0:50:250:50:27

I'm feeling quite good.

0:50:270:50:28

Who knows what's going to happen? I've done my best.

0:50:280:50:31

-I appreciate it, nice one.

-Why don't you go wait over there?

0:50:310:50:32

-Cheers, Mikelar.

-We'll see what we can do.

0:50:320:50:35

-Hello.

-Oh, for f...

0:50:440:50:47

Ohhh!

0:50:570:50:59

Go on, Smith!

0:51:050:51:06
