Hello, London!

That's my town.

Uh...

This is my second home.

I lived here for ten years.

I love London.

I actually recorded

a couple of specials here before.

When I lived here, I was broke.

I had no fucking money.

And maybe like 12 years ago,

I signed a contract

for five comedy specials for 90,000

with a record label over here,

which, when you're broke...

sounds like a really good

fucking deal, right?

I had no money

and someone offered me 90,000,

I was like, "F*ck, yeah,"

for five comedy specials.

But that is the worst deal

in record history.

Five comedy specials for 90,000.

Anyway, I was locked in.

I recorded one,

and then I got offered

an HBO special in America.

And so I went back to my record label

over here,

and I said, "Hey, here's the deal.

I just got offered a big deal in America.

What I'll do is I'll go over there,

I'll do the special then I'll come back

and do the other four specials with you."

And then my record label here went,

"You can't do that.

You're contracted to us,"

and I went, "Oh, that's a shame."

Then I got on a plane

and I went to America.

And then HBO said, "You sorted

that contract problem out, didn't ya?"

And I went, "I sure did."

And then I did the HBO special

and then my record label here

sued me for 200,000,

which is like, $300,000 American, right?

But it doesn't matter,

because HBO paid me $50,000, so...

So, you gotta spend money

to make money, you know?

So I was a little bit in the hole.

I had spent a lot of that earlier money

on drugs already.

So now I'm...

I'm poor and famous.

See, everybody wants to be

rich and famous.

And rich and famous is fucking amazing.

Poor and famous sucks dicks.

Have you ever been in a pound store

and been famous? That's...

So anyways, I'm poor and famous, right?

So I have sex with this American woman...

Consensually! I asked her.

She said yes, she enjoyed herself.

Anyway...

So I had sex with this woman,

and she thought, 'cause I was on the TV,

that I had money.

So she tried to extort me for $50,000.

She goes, "I have a sex tape of yours,

and I'm going to sell it."

And I went, "Fucking try."

"I don't know what the market is

for the podgy, pale Australian guy

who lasts a minute and a half,

but see what you can fuckin' get."

Then she goes, "Well, I have a photo

of you doing cocaine."

And I went, "Everyone does!

I've done cocaine off photos

of me doing cocaine."

"And you want to extort me?

Why don't you get a picture of me

being nice to my mother

or opening a door for a woman

or something off-brand?"

Now, I used to do

a lot of misogynistic jokes.

I'm not going to do as many of those.

I'll do some.

There's a lot of problems at the moment.

There's a lot of guys

that are raping people,

and a lot of people in the entertainment

business are going down,

some for more offensive things

than others, you know, but...

I'm nervous.

You know, I...

I don't think I've done anything wrong,

but between the hours of nine and nine,

I'm pretty blacked out.

Anyway, so...

Like, if James Bond was a real person,

he'd be super fucking nervous right now.

James Bond would be showing up to work,

like, "I'm here to see Q."

"Actually, you're here to see HR."

"We have 472 complaints

from a Miss Moneypenny."

Ah!

"Two Russian operatives say you used their

power against them and had sex with them."

"I was trying to get information.

You're welcome."

There's been like, Kevin Spacey went down.

Kevin Spacey, he went down, and he goes...

He goes, his defense was,

"It's probably a good time to mention
