On the Couch with Gavin Roach

Arts Review On the Couch Gavin RoachWho is Gavin Roach?
If you ever find that out, could you let me know… that’d be super great thanks.

What would you do differently to what you do now?
Maybe try to eat better… maybe!

Who inspires you and why?
I have a bit of a thing for ‘The Dames’ – Maggie, Judi and Helen. I really want to get drunk and go gay clubbing with them. Now that would be a wild night!

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Everybody gets to play with wine and puppies for an hour a day.  I dare anyone to find a downside to that plan.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Paris. The wine, the cheese, the butter, the men, the wine.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take then to, and why?
Anywhere within the free tram zone… unless they’re paying.

What are you currently reading?
Buzzfeeds on which 80s cartoon character I am… I keep rigging it till I get She-Ra.

What are you currently listening to?
Adele because, you know, emotions…

Happiness is?
Shots! I mean… yoga… no wait… shots!

What does the future hold for you?
The fear of another hang over.
