I was torn between putting this in here, or in documentaries - because it is a documentary-ish about a comedy partnership.

I'm in the middle of watching it now, but I paused to post :P

So, if you like Stephen Fry and you like Hugh Laurie, this is fun. To Brits they are known mainly as comedy partners - for Merkins not familiar with pre-House Hugh Laurie, my find this illuminating.

This is not uproarious, though there are some LoL moments - it's a gentle but endearing look at two very talented men, they're place within British comedy and a friendship of 30 years.

This was made a few years ago when Laurie was still Dr House.

It was shown across several nights I think and of course it had ad breaks, so there's a bit of recapping every so often:



I like when they are sitting talking together, they have such a clear bond. The clips of various comedy sketches are funny, and the way comedy was in the process of changing is groovy to watch.

I'd caught bits of this on the news, so I was aware of it, but I hadn't listened to it in any depth.

Wow. I mean - fucking hell. This does not inspire a great deal of confidence. But it is very funny, in a comedy car-crash kind of a way. It's like a scene from a British sit-com where the primary goal is to make you cringe back into your seat in embarrassment for the protagonist, even as you are laughing at his incompetent antics (the original Office for instance, or In the Thick of It)

I just can not like John Oliver. I just want to slap him. If he said to me "Hey Grav, ol' chap, have a hundred dollars, 'ere ya go.", I'd still want to slap him. Not even an angry "You motherfucker!"-type slap. Just a not-quite-casual-"You wanker!"-kinda-way.

From Bruce Almighty (the movie, not the fabulously awesome Dwellar):



Yeah, that's from before ol' Carrey tried to tell us what to do with our guns.

We still got our guns. Where's ol Jim been lately?
