Stewart Lee discusses The Difficult Second Book by Chris Moyles
what. is. happening.
It’s called young Richard wearing a tank top and one of his famous hippish necklace, and hair guitaring during a ….. karaoke session ? XD
This is from a book called “My Celebrity Boyfriend” by Liza Frank. Basically, she contacted a whole bunch of famous men and said “Look, I’m not a weirdo stalker, I’m doing a photography project. Can we take a photo together where it looks like we’re a couple - the set-up is entirely down to you? Again, I’m not a weirdo stalker and no one has thus far slapped me with a restraining order.”
It’s a really nice book, filled with loads of great photos (most of which do fulfil the criteria of “looks like a couple”). The one with Dexter Fletcher is very much a couple photo, as is the Alexander Siddig one. The Martin Freeman ones are hilarious. And Stewart Lee is in it. I LOVE STEWART LEE.
And of course, when Richard Armitage was contacted about participating in this project, you have to realise that he thought “GREAT, LET’S GET DOWN TO THE KARAOKE AND SING THE THEME TUNE FROM FRIENDS.”
(Tolkien is, however, rumoured to have charged his offspring all their pocket money to hear the end of the tale, having already got them hooked. This “first hit’s for free” technique he learned dealing heroin to CS Lewis, who only began the Narnia chronicles in order to have a reason to meet his supplier every week in the Eagle and Child pub. Anyone who has ever tangoed with Sister Brown Eye will recognise immediately the safe warm feeling of falling into a wardrobe full of fur coats. And then having tea with a man with goat’s legs.)
