National Theatre Live: The Comedy of Errors

Director(s): Dominic Cooke
Production: NCM/ Fathom

I respect my friends that come to

my house that has an artistic vibe.

Obviously, the host of

this house cares about

art and the visual space

and the energy within, and

he respects all his friends that

he invites over here equally.

I love when I go to my

friend's house and their

bathroom's really, really clean.

There's not pubic hair on

the rim of the toilet seat.

I'm with you on that.


Oh, and speaking of bathrooms,

I wanted to confess something.

I used... you have a box of always feminine

wipes in there, and I used a couple.

Just... my clitoris

was really messy.

So I had to wash up.

You have these terrific comedic

instincts, and then you

immediately sabotage them

with the worst follow-up.

The worst?

A terrible sense of humor.

So you know all comedians

ever, so you are qualified to

say what is the absolute worst.

You've heard all comedians ever.

No, it's in my opinion.

Well, then you can't use an

absolute term like "the worst."

I can do whatever I want.

Then give me a French kiss.

Well, fine, who disagrees?

Does he have a terrible

sense of humor?

Does he?


The cool thing about a group of

friends is that you got

the smart one, the

cool one, the musical

one, and the funny guy.

And that just makes it, like,

a well-rounded cool group,

you know, to hang out

with at my house.

We're like the... The avengers.

God, you were supposed

to say something funny.

That was your cue to,

like, boom, good joke.

I want to take this moment to

just acknowledge how strong

of a bond and what a great sense

of community I feel

amongst everybody here.

I mean, I really appreciate all

the support, and I appreciate,

you know, the friendship

honestly, so God bless ya.

Let me say it, I never... I

never had a family, okay?
