Completely impatient but do we have any solid fact that there is audio of Chris's interview?

Sorry, I still haven't got hold of it. But yes, there definitely is one and I've been told I can borrow it. Apparently it's a a bit quiet but decent quality.

And "timguest", yeah I think you spoke to me and my friend. We spoke about the Armando Ianucci Shows, right?

I hope any audio that does turn up gets distributed through this site rather than facebook or something, seems slightly unfair on the man having his interview splashed all over the intternet, and in a roundabout way just highlights why he doesn't get involved with public talks etc.

And yeah, it is a bit morally dubious considering we were asked not to record. Especially if newspapers refer to this site, then it seems not implausible that he might notice and think "that's the last time I do something like that then".

Just thinking the amount of times Chris Morris has secretly recorded people... We learned from the best

On questions that were not asked or topics not discussed during his talk...

I think I would have enquired to his activity online, in so much as blogging, forum submissions or content on the public video channels such as YouTube etc... seems an ideal medium for him to let off steam or seed ideas, or for that matter completly lambast the thing.

On a cynical note; any of you gits suspect a hidden agenda for this public appearance?

Looking forward to any audio from this event.

To be honest, although he's obviously not a public figure, it seemed to me that he takes pride in his work being very public and critically assessed, and with the internet, it would take a lot of his own efforts and a consistently updated website to stop things he put onto the web disappearing into indifferent obscurity. I don't think he'd like that as much.

He mentioned more than once about a desire to work on radio again, though.

I hear you. Although the web is ephemeral by its very nature, I am sure Morris could subvert that medium or atleast use it bi-proxy .

For instance, Trashbat site was a spot on extension of the show and if I am honest could have been a great deal better, but atleast the intention was there.
I also liked the smokehammer ideas, especially Bar 9/11 and there are still a few 'viral' type webpages floating about concerning his Jam series.

Considering his knowledge and subversion of most media formats, I personally would welcome a purely online series of Nathan Barley. It just didn't feel right as a TV 'sitcom' despite being a whole lot different from the usual tosh.  I reckon the web is there for the taking.

With regard to a return to radio. How about a morris Podcast? Ha!

seriously people, paramount comedy now are reporting that Morris is doing a "comedy United 93". It's completely ridiculous. It's no wonder he never does interviews. Which makes me think it 's probably aswell that interview doesn't get posted. It takes away from his mystique

Well, the way I see it, if the interview is posted in full then the journalists have no excuses for misreporting it. At the moment they can claim it was distorted through hearsay but if the interview is there for everyone to listen to then it's anyone can see what was really said and it's clear how they've misrepresented it.

But the only journalist that was there, afaik, was Lashmar who did the interviewing. There shouldn't be any misreporting because the interview wasn't meant to be documented at all, at least audio/visually.
This is just playing into Morris' hands though. Unqualified rumours that he's doing a 'comedy United 93' would be exactly what he'd want to hear being said about himself.

Look, right, if one more 'anonymous' pesters the poor guy, I'm asking him not to post the link on here and we'll send it out to registered users only.

For fuck's sake, people really do take the fucking piss sometimes.

I've just gone through the thread to check for people asking for or hinting about the audio recording etc and these are the people who did so (I've bolded the registered users) in order of time posted:

As you can see the registered users outnumber the 'anonymous' posters by 6 to 3 (or 6 to 2 if both of the first 'guests' were the same person). So unless I'm missing a joke or I've fucked up who is and isn't registered, your comment is totally unfair, TJ.

Well, call me crazy, but I imagine he was just working from memory, rather than methodically going through the thread and making a sorted list of who the registered users were and weren't.  The main point, though, to be honest, is that it's amazing the internet has bred this mentality where people feel comfortable hassling folks who are doing them a favour.  Particularly given the sheer aggressiveness of this hassling at times (e.g. "When the fucking Christ is he gonna post it?")  I think that's rude, and almost certainly counter-productive.

Jeeeeesus Christ,...you guys take this all a little too seriously.

Post it, don't post it...whatever.

Everybody Chill.

I only said that, because I'm just slightly confused as to why this is taking so long, if he's got an mp3, upload somewhere, for example;

www.yourfilehost.com

And give out the link.

I tried to get a recording of it, I failed.

'Miss, miss!,...Stuart typed, 'fucking Christ'...just for that I'm gonna wait a few extra weeks, he is hassling me and making my man-pussy quiver'.

I'm just suggesting that if someone is doing you, and indeed the whole community and more folks besides, a very big favour, and chasing up someone who has a recording which we want to hear and which may not exist in any other hands, then maybe, JUST MAYBE, it may be beneficial to be patient and polite, rather than acting like a stompy-footed shitty-arsed whinging sweary little baby who needs a good smack on the bum.

In my defence I said this "Could the recordings be unleashed please? Need to hear this". If that's berating then I'm obviously a faggot. Least I know now.
