No fortunately not. I was one of the people brought out to slow dance. My memory is failing me a bit but at the end when he fucks off on the horse (did he do that every night or was it a recording used over and over again)

He did that every night. The night he performed in Utrecht we walked out of the venue twenty minutes later, to the train station, only to find Noble and the audience member chatting away on the horse with friends of the audience member walked behind the horse, looking stressed.

Link here too, please.

Also, in terms of funniest lines from Kitson, it really isn’t that funny but a couple years ago in Manchester, someone in the audience got one of his questions wrong and when someone else got the answer correct, Kitson concluded with  “*points at wrong answerer* Dickhead!.. *spins and points at right answerer* Legend!” To this day, “Dickhead! Legend!” is uttered by me at least once a week.

I was at hummingofevil's show and I think about "head and neck cancer!" several times a week.  Gawd bless the Kitson.

When I saw him back in January, he noticed someone in the audience wearing a high vis jacket and quipped "Do you feel seen and safe?"

I still remember him pausing his bit to tell someone in the audience to put their jacket on the floor instead of holding it in their lap because if it's in their lap then part of their attention is on the jacket and not on him and all the attention should be on him.

I too was at this show and still remember his mock “I’m not worthy” collapse to the floor when that lady in the audience revealed she was a speech therapist. I laughed so much that night I felt ill the next day.

I’ve got loads of stuff. If you pass on the link I’ll add anything you’ve not already got.

Have you got any Late N Live stuff? The recording from 2007 in that collection is amazing, hadn't heard it before.

That is amazing. I spent ages assuming that was what he did but then thought months later that he could have just as easily filmed that bit and just went and hid whilst we watch the one recording he did in advance. If he actually rode away from the venue on a horse EVERY night that is just crazy, especially in the middle of bloody central London.

I'd like the link too. I had a Kitson bootleg about 10 years ago, and I've always wondered what the song he walked out to was. I hope it's in there so I can finally shazam it.

Only for him then to get up and start screaming at her in the darkness that she was a leach who profited off real victims like him. It was fucking glorious. You may or may not remember but he had already randomly picked out someone who lived down the street from him in Crystal Palace and a fellow Barnsley fan (in a gig in Newcastle). You could sense there was some magic in the air that night.

In fact I think I actually remember the whole interaction pretty much word for word. For those of you who weren't there:

It started when he asked the audience who had to be up early (the show didn't start till gone midnight on school night) and a woman's voice near the back in the darkness shouted out. He focused on her and asked what time and she said "between 8am and 9" and he came back with something like "that is not late that is just the margin of error for bad traffic" which got a bit of a laugh.

Then when he asked her what she did and she said "speech therapist" i was already losing my shit (he had already done his "who has seen me before and who has been brought along by their mates to see The Legend" before asking one guest whether his mates had told him about the speech impediment). Then came the I'm-not-worthy followed by abusing her for being a leech.

He went on to explain to the voice at the back how went to therapy and tried all the tapping stuff to measure out the syllables and she said that wasn't what she did because she doesn't specialise in.... (can't remember the technical term she used). "Have you just diagnosed me he?" he asked and she didn't reply. The laughs were getting bigger.

"Well go on then... why don't you tell us all... what DO you specialise in then?" raising his eyebrows and smirking at the room as if to get the audience on side as if she was being a smart-arse.

"Head and neck cancer" came the voice from the darkness and 350 people lost their fucking shit laughing. He then proceeded to dance around the stage singing his Head and Neck Cancer song. He may have shouted "fucking hell mate... time and place" at one point too but maybe that was a different show.

LCD Soundsystem?

I don't think so. It wasn't electro at all. It was a pretty simple guitar track that went "der der der der der der, der der der" from what I remember.

I've created a Google drive thingy where I've uploaded recordings commercially not available and where anybody can add stuff.

i feel like you have to be there for these anecdotes. and also that there must be a better way of handling distribution of this link as opposed to the thread becoming 100 people asking for it (e.g. try the PM function).

so one bit that is memorable (yet sadly i can't remember the details), was during a midnight edinburgh show at the stand in 2013 (possibly 2012). it was definitely a bit, not improv, where he sprinkled a bunch of puns throughout the show. i feel like they were to do with sailing (?), but that could be completely wrong. i remember stuff like '3! that's 3!', 'FOUR!', 'HE WOULDN'T DO FIVE, WOULD HE???????'. i was extremely tired during this show and as a result not enjoying the whole thing as much as i'd like, but i would love to hear that bit again. haven't seen it anywhere unfortunately.

Out of interest, has anyone got part two of the 05/01/06 Brighton Komedia show? There are definitely two parts but I lost the second at some point a few years ago I think.
