Live Latitude Buzzcocks episode ends in Jupitus-led mass karaoke
Tim Clark16 July 2011
A one-off live episode of Never Mind The Buzzcocks ended in Phill Jupitus leading a packed-out comedy tent in Rolling Stones' Satisfaction.
While Phill led the singing, Noel Fielding and guest presenter David O'Doherty, both dressed in capes, flipped over all of the show's desks.
Other guests included Seann Walsh and Charlie Baker, as well as regular show guest Paloma Faith and a very nervous Rob from band Dog Is Dead, filling in for an absent Seasick Steve.
Also appearing was Ed Seymour, the audience member who filled Preston's chair after he walked out of a live recording of the show in 2007. He was successfully picked out in the identity parade round.
Noel Fielding also revealed that Preston couldn't actually leave after he walked out of the 2007 recording, as he didn't have his dressing room key. Added Noel: “What a cock.”
Later on, team captains Phill and Noel played tennis and fenced with giant paper cutouts of Justin Bieber and Bono's heads.
And the intros round featured both a band and a dedicated choir – or more specifically, six hastily-assembled backstagers mumbling into a microphone.
The show originally started out with cleaned-up content, with David O'Doherty opening: “We can filthy it up, but that's countered out by the fact there are lots of kids. So it'll be rude, but not that rude.”
However, that was quickly undercut as Seann Walsh announced: “This is too early for me, I've still got morning wood.”
The sprawling show's stories covered an 11-year-old Noel Fielding getting Rolf Harris on a ferry to draw him a picture of a starfish, and Phill Jupitus soiling himself on Disneyland's Space Mountain.
