[ laughter ] >> yeah, "try to recreate that moment, you know, you're a a performer. >> jimmy: exactly. >> and also, i like the bits of their house they choose to show you, like the people who look like they've been kidnapped, are about to hold up a a newspaper with that day's date >> jimmy: yeah, we have a couple of writers that still have that as their background, and i'm like, "just move anywhere else. and they're like, "this is the only spot we can get away from our kids and whatever. but, yeah. you for, i don't know, good lighting i tried all sorts of different things at one point, there was a good shot that i would have to, like, lean down into it, look up at the sun. isn't it odd though also, not having an audience you have an audience normally around 600 people, is that correct? >> yeah, we're lucky, we have a really big audience.
and that's amazing as you know, like, walking out to that cheering, that applause, i mean, we are a a vortex of need that fills the void for a few seconds. >> jimmy: yeah >> but we -- i don't know what you have now, we have a thing where we get a social distanced audience so it's about a hundred people in the audience. and it's -- i mean, no offense to them, but it's awful. it sounds like they're emptying a bucket of wet fish or something. [ laughter ] there you go thank you, thank you very much >> jimmy: but you also do a great thing on your show called "red chair stories," and i think it's hilarious can explain what this is, and where the idea came from >> so, it's a thing where people from the audience sit in a chair, and they try to tell, like, their best, funniest story. the story they tell down the pub with their friends >> jimmy: yeah if it bores us, i've got a a lever, and i flip them and, it basically built -- we - >> jimmy: you flip the chair back" >> i don't know.
honestly, we should sell them for christmas. we should sell them for christmas. like, granny is boring, bore off granny, boom >> jimmy: yeah >> but we built it -- we built it, because we had this comedian on, a british comedian, he's gone now, sadly ronnie corbett well, he used to do a bit, where he would tell a really long, rambly story and he would do it in a red chair. and he was coming on the show, so we thought, "oh, let's get audience members to try to tell stories, and we'll flip them funny, one show, our line producer then got in touch with us and said, "you know that chair? that was quite expensive, is there any way we could use that chair again? >> jimmy: "just twice would even make me happy just please, we spent so much money on that flipping chair, we have to do this bit again." >> yeah. we need some economy of scale. yeah, so now, it's been good value now, 'cause we do it every week, so, it's been going for years. >> jimmy: i read somewhere that you don't consider yourself a good interviewer, which is surprising to me, because i think you are a great --
>> well, i think -- isn't it that thing, that like, i like chatting, i like chatting to people, that's very nice but, like, aninterview to me sounds like you're going to go somewhere or get some revelation i have zero interest you know, when you get those things from, like, the people, it's like, "okay, they don't want to talk about their dating i was like, "i don't want to talk about it. >> jimmy: yeah >> i have zero interest in who they're dating so, we just talk about whatever they want to talk about. so long as we have a good time if they've got some funny stories, i'm happy >> jimmy: yeah, i agree. which, i think interviewers are, kind of, you know, boom boom boom. that's not me. >> jimmy: i love your show who is on the show this week is the big christmas show this week, or no? >> in britain, we're taping our big christmas show this week, and it's good. we got george clooney on it. viola davis is on it who else >> jimmy: fantastic. michael sheen, david tennant, it's a good one. >> jimmy: well, i love your christmas shows, and i also love, just, christmas music in the u.k., i think is almost better than american music for me >> no. >> jimmy: well, there's songs
that i love. i mean, "do they know it's christmas," "band-aid i'll take." but i will take "slade." i think there's -- ♪ i wish it could be christmas every day ♪ yeah, i like that one. >> yes, that's my favorite song growing up i loved it >> jimmy: really i love that song, that's not big in america at all. i like "can you stop the cavalry. i like cliff richard, "mistletoe and wine. i wanted to something -- i know cliff richard is not on the show, but i'm assuming he has been >> yes i would like to sing a little bit of that song for you, if that's okay. [ laughter ] i'll be right back i've got to put my own wardrobe on >> that's delightful >> jimmy: okay i'm getting changed now. >> do people in america know
who cliff richard is >> jimmy: no, not really he had one giant hit here. did he do duet with olivia newton-john or no. >> he did "wired for sound," back in walkman days >> jimmy: let me see if i got this on right. so, i wanted to do this part, i like "mistletoe and wine," but didn't want to do cliff richard's part so, i want to do the choir boy at the end, i want to make sure i have the right key you can, again -- it's not even recognizing my face, that's how awful this is. alright, here we go. all right. ♪ christmas tim mistletoe an wine childre singing christian rhyme ♪ ♪ with logs o
