    Each to their own I suppose. I thought the back and forth between will i am and Miriam Margolyes was gas..

    I think I like Will.I.Am now :o


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9,700 ✭✭✭ tricky D


    Miriam Margolyes was a gas playing her doddery aul wan character (except for the Little Dorrit bit which didn't work well imo). And surprisingly I also warmed to will.i.am a bit.

    That show is usually funny, watched this, it doesn't seem any funnier than usual

    No sense of humour so! That was great. Very few shows on TV that you would see a world famous rapper and a 71 year old classic theatre performing making each other laugh like that...

    I just think Will.I.Am has no charisma about him when he talks.

    Will I am just gone WAY up in my estimation !

    To be fair, he was being limited by his inability to use the word "Like"!

    I thought he really got into it. When she was telling her stories, the look on his face was something else!


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,472 ✭✭✭ Queen-Mise


    I like Will.I.Am a lot. I knew he was a genius in his own world - producing, rapping etc, never realised he is such a philanthropist.

    That was very funny - some very odd stories told.


  • Registered Users Posts: 792 ✭✭✭ Ziegfeldgirl27


    I just watched it lastnight, I thought it was brilliant, one of the funniest GN shows I've ever seen actually. I thought the banter between will I am and Miriam was adorable! Her acting bit was great.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,501 Delphi91


    I agree - saw it last Friday night and thought the show was hilarious - best GN show in a while.


  • Registered Users Posts: 34,788 ✭✭✭✭ krudler


    the difference between the dry sh1te Late Late and this i staggering, Tubridy, this is what a talk show host does for a living

    Meh.
    Very beige.
    Funny in parts.
    Not especially funny overall.

    I think the contrast between the urban (Will.I.Am) and the quaint (Miriam Margolyes) is what made it so funny. It also goes to show how much different the BBC/English TV is in general to America; when Miriam commented that she didn't know many black people and that it was nice/joked(or maybe it was serious?) about misunderstanding what he was saying, it would likely have caused uproar across the States. However, they just laughed it off.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,596 ✭✭✭ anniehoo


    I watched it twice it was flippin hilarious!!!!! Will.i.am crackin up when GN went from talking about lesbians to "Dickens Women"! The pther lad didnt get a look in, who was he again???:D

    I love the GN Show as it is, and that ep has to be one of the best! Its great when 3 people who might not have anything in common just have a laugh on the show! Reminded me a lot of this episode, very funny too:



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,654 ✭✭✭ Lisha


    THat a great episode too Jason Todd, Sarah Millicent must have thought all her birthdays were at once when she heard who the other guests were


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,455 ✭✭✭ RUCKING FETARD


    It's in a load of parts though....







    the last clip...:D

    This Seasons Finale of GN is repeated Tonight on BBC1 at 23.50, it's a load of funny clips from dif eps, very good.



    Martin Sheen is on RTE1 Tonight aswell in "Who Do You Think You Are? US"

    Genius?? Average pop producer and a terrible rhymer of words, could hardly be considered a rapper, not anymore anyway.

    Will comes across as a very likeable character. Also the philantopist side is very impressive as I wasn't aware of any of this.

    Also an old theatrical lesbian **** off a soldier who was in a tree is an epic story in on any program!
