Dave Gorman Q&A
‘Famous Last Words’ with the comedian, broadcaster and novelist…
Last thing you did that made you feel good?
I just ate some frozen yoghurt. That was nice.
Last thing you’d want to be doing right now?
Last night on Earth… What’s your poison?
Rum and coke.
Last supper… What are you ordering?
Fish and chips. With mushy peas. Or possibly a salt beef bagel. I eat fish but not meat. Bacon doesn’t tempt me. But salt beef does… and if it really was my last supper.
Last person you’d want to share a drink with?
Joey Barton. He doesn’t seem safe to be around when he’s sober so it’s hardly surprising that danger has so often accompanied him when alcohol is in the mix.
“Just relax and enjoy what you have”
Last time you shed a tear and why?
A couple of weeks ago. I was reading Bête de Jour – a memoir by Stan Cattermole – and his recollection of a conversation with his mother just set me off. Beautiful.
Last refuge… where would you go?
Ardnamurchan – it’s a Scottish peninsula and the westernmost point of mainland Britain. Very remote and very beautiful. I cycled through it last year.
Last the course… tips on loot, love & life?
There’s always someone better off than you, so just relax and enjoy what you have.
Last but one… random question: Googlewhack, Astrology Experiments, Reasons To Be Cheerful – what’s been your favourite project to date?
Tricky. Reasons to be Cheerful is the one I’m proudest of because it was the biggest leap into the unknown. Googlewhack wasn’t conceived as a project – the events weren’t undertaken deliberately in order to create a show and weren’t fun to live through – but it was the show I most enjoyed performing. Cycling across Britain was the most fun to do.
Famous Last Words?
I’m sorry Mr Barton, you’re a very lovely man, an excellent footballer and I apologise for saying I didn’t want to share a drink with you.
