Would I Lie To You & The Unbelievable Truth  
On Sunday I got to see Would I Lie To You, which was as brilliant as ever. The guests were Nigel Havers, Nina Wadia, somebody from Masterchef, and CHARLIE BROOKER! I have now seen Charlie Brooker in the flesh twice, because he was also on The Unbelieveable Truth the next day. I have seen Mitchell and Brooker together at last \o/ - and it was terribly sweet. If by sweet I mean, of course, that Brooker insults Mitchell all the time! To the extent that Brooker barely responded to anything on WILTY that didn't involve David. And on the UT he kept collapsing on the desk with his head in his despairing hands and then looking up to catch David's eye. They are obviously very good mates.

I went to both with rionaleonhart, who helped me get the ticket for UT, yay! She has a phenomenal memory, like an elephant's, although I doubt the elephant is as good, frankly - and she therefore puts together these wonderful reports of the recordings with proper dialogue and everything, which I am completely incapable of doing, so please do go and read them! WILTY is here, and I'll include the UT one later when it's posted! EDIT: It's here!

My memory is probably failing, but weren't they both on the election thing you went to (where we saw you in the audience gazing fondly at DM's arse)? Or was that just DM?

You are right - my memory is failing, not yours! But it also sort of doesn't count, because the Election thing was live and therefore scripted, so not much banter. These recordings showcased them so much better! :)

You'd already seen Mitchell and Brooker together! You were at the Election Special! Where Mitchell shoved Brooker! With love!

ETA: And I see somebody's beaten me to it. *g* But you're right - they're so much more adorable unscripted. Because scripts never include Brooker talking about being ordered to kiss Mitchell by the voices in his head.

They are! Brooker keeps looking at Mitchell, as though he needs his permission to be funny! And when he was being particularly useless at guessing he not only facepalmed but was blushing when he raised his head! *adores them*

Glad you had fun. :)

Did the speed date guy take the rescheduling well?

Seemed to take it ok - I'm seeing him tonight as it happens, so I will have to let people know more after tonight...
