Simon: In the last show I spoke in the opening 20 minutes about an actor who I was quite obsessed with for maybe 4 to 5 years. Miquita: Try 6 or 7. But lie now. Simon: Not only that but in the show that was on BBC 2 I created a fictional version of him giving him a name, not dissimilar to the actor’s actual name, I then see the actual actor. Miquita: Do you wanna say his name? Simon: No, no. Cause I think it’s still mildly alright. Miquita: But you just said that you… Simon: Hang on, let me just finish the story before you ruin my life. So I see him, in London, where he lives, and I say to him ‘Oh I feel I should maybe apologize to you’, and he said 'Oh what for’ and I said 'I just sort of mildly fictionalized you’ and he said 'Oh yeah I’ve heard about that’. So he hadn’t seen it, like what do I have to do to get you fucking attention?!
the drums were FAB last night, it was at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen so it was only a tiny 400 person capacity! Grimmy was there and we met Miquita Oliver at the nearby co-op afterwards, and I had a long chat with her about preggo lily allen. apparently she’s chained to her bed watching ER repeats. poor lils.
Simon Amstell: ‘The Vengabus is coming-’ Patrick Wolf: The Vengabus is coming, coming to t- Miquita Oliver: -Coming to a town near y- Simon: It’s not a circus or a film! Patrick: The Vengabus is coming, boom boom boom boom, I want you in my room! Simon: It’s a different song! 'The Vengabus is coming and everybody’s jumping!’ Patrick: We’re going to Ibiza! Simon: Different one! You can’t just give me the whole Vengaboys back catalogue!
