Fatboy Slim Has Been Serving Customers In His Café During Coronavirus Pandemic

Fatboy Slim Has Been Serving Customers In His Café During Coronavirus Pandemic

Norman Cook - better known by his stage name Fatboy Slim - has used the enforced break from his touring, DJing, and recording lifestyle to spend a bit of time working in a café in Brighton.

Admittedly, he is the owner of the Big Beach Café in the East Sussex seaside city, but he's now decided to pitch in and become a bit more hands on by serving customers.

Cook reckons it is a great way to keep himself busy and to keep his mental health on the straight and narrow while his usual line of work is on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic.

He's owned the café for seven years, but this whole horrific Covid-19 business has proven to be the shove he needed to pull on a pinny and get stuck in to the daily life of the establishment.

Speaking on podcast Celebs & the Average Joe, the 'Rockafeller Skank' musician said: "It turns out I make a pretty good waiter - I'm there 11 to three most weekdays."

The star also says that because his New Year's Eve livestream has now been cancelled as well, he'll be feeling fresh as a daisy for his shift on New Year's Day, presumably serving warm bowls of food to bleary eyed punters who've celebrated a socially-distanced send-off to 2020 the night before.

"I'll be working in the café on New Year's Day," he said.

"That's how latterly I've been getting through lockdown.

"I was losing my will to live just sitting at home every day. And everything we tried to do just seemed to fall apart."

"So I just started working in the café, and it's great because it's a bit like the Queen Vic - it's like one ongoing soap opera. I'm a pretty good waiter.

"I'm not trained on the coffee machine - I leave the baristas to that. But I'm a good front-of-house."

Those coffee machines are like the large hadron collider, to be fair.

The café has been able to stay open because it is in Tier Two at the minute, and the multi-million selling recording artist says that most people don't even recognise who is serving them their sarnie because he's having to wear a mask all the time.

He added: "That's half the gag.

"Because half the regulars either don't look at me because I've got a mask on - they don't look or care.

"The other half kind of smile knowingly."
