Rob Rouse Q&A
‘Famous Last Words’ with comedian Rob Rouse…
Last thing you did that made you feel good?
I just did the first show of the tour and it was great fun. I’m still buzzing, I need to go to bed soon, but won’t be able to. Last thing you’d want to be doing right now? Maths. I can’t do it. If I had to do maths right now it would be a total bummer! I’m in a great mood and now you’ve given me maths. You’re evil.
Last night on Earth… What’s your poison?
Last supper… What are you ordering?
I suppose because of the show I should say ‘Roadkill’. Maybe rolled pheasant breast stuffed with wild garlic, pignuts and hedgehog mince, with a nettle and wild mushroom side salad. Sounds alright that, actually.
Last person you’d want to share a drink with?
Helen, my Mrs. And my boy of course, he’ll have a milk.
Last time you shed a tear and why?
Aside from losing loved ones, I can’t remember. I have a feeling I should cry more at stuff. I get the sensation, my lip wobbles but I struggle to really let myself go and blub. Helen teases me that I didn’t cry when our son was born! We watch that One Born Every Minute programme and when the dads cry she elbows me and goes “See, you’re weird!” I was so happy though, I couldn’t stop laughing. Perhaps I might be somewhere between 1 and 25 per cent genuinely mental, I don’t know. We all are though, aren’t we?
Last refuge… where would you go?
Home and bunker up with my family and dog. There’s a good chance that Ronnie (the dog) could ‘hump’ us a way out, or at least create an amusing diversion. Visit my website, watch the trailer and that’ll make sense!
Last the course… tips on loot, love & life?
Don’t just put your bills in a drawer and forget about them – amazingly when you do that, they don’t get paid! Love’s actually all that matters and that’s life.
“I stood naked in the garden and roared”
Last but one… random question: Tell us about something that interests you that nobody else knows about. Like Gaelic football… or porcelain.
I absolutely love doing practical things with my hands and harbour the misguided belief that I’m quite good at it. I find making anything permanent immensely fulfilling. I’ve learnt how to mix concrete recently and sunk some fence posts into it. Then stood naked in the garden and roared! (silently, in pitch dark!). Helen bought me a chainsaw once for Christmas which was the best present ever. I LOVE MY CHAINSAW!!! That might be something I should keep to myself.
Famous Last Words?
What does this button do? Really?… Sh*t!…. And is it reversible?… No…. Surely there should be some sort of sign… Ah there is… Arse.
