    Stephen Fry in America

    I'm watching this now and I must say it's brilliant.

    OK, I admit to being a Fry fan, books, tv comedy etc. but this is different.

    A remarkably open minded view of the USA.

    Big cudus for Chicago, Chi.


    Fascinating stuff from a remarkably intelligent observer.

    There are only two options for threads like this.

    If it portrays the US in positive light it will either bring out Ant and Reach Around and Noodles and the Teak Door Blithering Idiots to attack it.

    Or it will die quickly and quietly.

    Doesn't. Suprisingly balanced. Inteligent and witty. Bound to die a death.

    You forgot Option 3: Tex will come in whinging, whining, blubbering, dribbling and baring the chip on his shoulder, erecting strawmen before anyone has even posted.

    Yep saw this little while back actually, very good. He sure put some miles on his cab!

    Only a few episodes from memory though?

    That's alright Tex. As TD's premier homophobe you can attack Stephen Fry as an English faggot, if you like.

    All Englishmen are faggots, aren't they? At least partly. Thought that was a given.

    The OPs remarkably intelligent viewer phrase is dubious, however.

    Great thing about S. Fry. He's a large fat English queer but, also an extraordinarily clever one. I've met him at a few function/exhibitions where various "clever" people tried to put him down. None succeeded. He destroyed them, in the most charming way. Oscar eat your heart out.

    Not sure. I believe he found a partner 4-5 years back. A while after his breakdown. Working like a trojan since. Seems well centered.

    Nothing like as fat anymore, he has lost a lot of weight recently.

    ^^Righto, ta. Not that it really matters anyways I guess.

    Recently had an email forwarded to me, it was apparently a transcript of an after dinner speech he made during the Ashes. Not sure if it was legit but sounded very Fry-ish and was bloody hilarious!

    Love to see that mate.

    He's one of the most errudite speakers I've ever heard/seen.

    Manic-depressive, he is.

    Should fit in well in America.

    Was. Did a fascinating series on it. As did John Cleese. Interesting, comedians and depression.

    Long history there.

    I've not had the pleasure of hearing him live unfortunately. Read and seen pretty much everything he has written / been in though.

    The email was sent to my work address, if I've still got it I'll post in on here tomorrow. Actually I'd be quite interested to find out if it is legit.
