Lee Mack talks WILTY, Not Going Out, and introducing Peter Kay at his first stand up appearance

Rob’s Would I Lie To You? co-star, Lee Mack, talks about the time he performed at Britain's smallest theatre, the problems that come with bringing members of the audience on stage, and what it’s like to be part of the BBC’s currently longest running sitcom, Not Going Out.

The old friends also chat about the first time they met over 20 years ago, and how Rob went from cancelling his second appearance on WILTY, to becoming the host for the last 12 years!

    Also 'Might I just say', to quote Rob, that Lee not drinking is a very sad addition to the list of teetotaler tossers that I resent so much. Lee you dont belong to them, resist the dark side. Come back to us artistic fun yolo thinking folk. Even if you have to start with a ginger beer and a hand shandy, whatever that is. Then go non-manual, and then soon youll find youre fine with a couple pints of beer or cider. You dont have to hit the antibacterial soap and typewriter fluid, just a cider or two. An apple a day keeps the doctor away and all that. Teetotalers are frikking odd, and they turn into politicians. Do you want to turn into a polititian Lee? Do you??

    Oh Lee, just a few seconds in! Tchube isn't correct, it's adding a y sound that creates the 'correct' standard pronunciation. Tyube. Just think of how you say the letter u alone… "yu". Apologies if I've just duplicated a previous comment.

    Anyone who still works for the pseudo liberal totalitarian propaganda network the BBC always "sells out" Though I will admit this time it is I who have forced politics into an otherwise happy escape from the forced diet of Political Correctness. I guess I still remember a time when those who served dictatorial government combined with corporate power and a media that promoted their agenda, while calling for political opposition to be censored and vilified, were called fascists and not liberals or progressives. No, I'm not fun at parties but it doesn't matter because I don't mix in the elitist circle jerks where they are still possible because there are different rules than for the rest of us. Rob and Lee are probably nice guys, but they are intelligent enough to know what the BBC is all about and who they really work for.

    Toxoplasmosis and toxoplasma gondii is a parasitic protozoan that is transmitted through the spread of feline fecal matter and infests the lungs, eyes, brains and hearts of innocent infant humans, where it leads to the causation of cysts that damages cones, rods, alveoli, ventricles, axons, dendrites and in particular synapses, more importantly, pre-synaptic clefts, this leads to the blockage of cellular reuptake receptors in ion channels... the SMRI studies the link between this and the on set of schizophrenia, South Australia has an annual loss of 70 million in ruminants... (and Queenslands prisons cost 2.1 million dollars per day and it is $300.64 per day, per prisoner... dole bludgers dont get that spent on them!, did i mention the fact that bent and rusty syringe needles are sharpened on the concrete and steel bed bases before being inserted into arms, the $2.1 million per day is just to house, feed, clothe and maintain the health of these bastards, any intravenous disease is an additional community cost) browyn bishop is awarded $700 per day, people work hard for her enabled self righteous taxpayer funded, bold talking persona, like she should be a character in a movie she is that entitled and her character should be categorically indexed as extraordinaire, she is the greatest driver of slaves that the world has ever seen but im certain she owns a cat, so that means her wealth actively harms children. www.teslasources.com/ re:franklin's bells (weather can be controlled electrically)

    @billswifejo If that's all people judge me on then I'm probably getting off lightly and I'd be happy with that. If my pronunciation makes me an outcast then I guess I know I can find shelter in certain parts of Swansea or the USA. Not sure if it would qualify as grounds for an assylum claim in Swansea but Robert Jones might support my application as I am half Welsh. The bottom half.

    @LittleFluffy Bushbaby I was using ‘correct’ as being the standard English pronunciation that is described in the English dictionary. It would be the pronunciation that a non-English speaker would use as their reference when learning English. In the UK I’m not aware of any regional dialects where ‘ty’ is routinely replaced by ‘ch’. In my experience it is often a reflection of poor knowledge of English, which socially could be referred to as class. Well educated people from all over the UK would almost certainly say ‘tyube’ (single syllable, not tee-yube, which would be two syllables. Although I have travelled to both South Dakota and Alice Springs, it was long before the advent of You Tube. ‘Toob’ is how most Americans pronounce the word, and is the standard American pronunciation. You are, of course, at liberty to pronounce You Tube any way you want, but be aware that others may judge you for it! Good Luck.

    @billswifejo So would that sound like "tee-yoob"? I have some further questions though... Wouldn't the correct pronunciation depend on what was considered 'correct'? Doesn't that imply that anyone with a regional accent (be it Scottish, South Dakota or Alice Springs) would be considered incorrect? Given that most people speak with some form of accent we are nearly all incorrect. If that is true, does that mean correct pronunciation is statistically incorrect? So is it wrong to be right? If that is right I'm going to start saying "yowt-oobay" and no one can touch me for it. Ha ha
