    Not much of an angle for taking the piss out of The Graham Norton Show. The Late Late Show thread is where it's at ;)


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 16,283 Mod ✭✭✭✭ quickbeam


    Quality show. As always.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,247 ✭✭✭ lertsnim


    One of the best episodes I've seen in a long time


  • Registered Users Posts: 43,449 ✭✭✭✭ Basq


    Yep.. Norton always delivers but tonight was something else.

    All the guests were great.. but never knew Hugh Bonneville was so funny!

    euh that end bit

    I thought his act seemed very contrived.
    I didn't think Murray had much time for him.

    Yep, Hugh Bonneville was very contrived and awkward, clearly putting on a bit of an act, while Damon and Murray were being their natural selves. Maybe they're just used to the limelight more.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,151 ✭✭✭ stunner dunner


    I didn't take to Bonneville at all. It was like he was trying to be a bit 'laddish' to fit in with the big guys, and it didn't suit him

    Am watching this on 3e.

    Bill Murray is just class.

    Best episode in a while.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,609 ✭✭✭✭ MadYaker


    Watched it last night, it was hilarious! I love how the American guests always react to how the show is run. Its totally different to anything in the states, much more casual and relaxed, the drinking and the swearing etc. Matt Damon in particular seemed to really enjoy it, I think at the end he said it was the most fun he's ever had on a talk show.

    Go from the Graham Norton show to the awkward and terrible The Saturday Night show.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,581 ✭✭✭ dirkmeister


    Just watching this now, Bill Murray is stealing the show.

    He'd be great at a party, so effortlessly funny.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,351 ✭✭✭✭ Harry Angstrom


    I always suspected that Bill Murray was just playing himself in Lost In Translation. Now I know it. Loving his laid-back yet slightly melancholy attitude.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,351 ✭✭✭✭ Harry Angstrom


    Bonneville is annoying.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,347 ✭✭✭ LynnGrace


    Really enjoying show, partly I think because they are all in bits laughing, Matt Damon, in particular. I think Graham Norton is hilarious.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,511 ✭✭✭✭ FreudianSlippers


    That's the best episode I have seen in ages. Loved how Mark Wahlberg was lulzing all over the place and have to say i genuinely lol'd at "I have to tell you: I'm Irish"


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 11,205 Mod ✭✭✭✭ hmmm


    Norton appears so effortless, but you can see the amount of research that has been done and his knowledge of the guests. Something for Tubs to learn from.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,798 ✭✭✭ Addle


    And the alcohol helps too I think!

    Lord Grantham and Bill had certainly been at the cooking sherry. When is Bill Murray going to do a Spike Milligan biopic ? Talk about kindred spirits.

    I think Bonneville worked in the sense that he got the other two giggling away and you could see Norton was beginning to lose them, barely getting an answer out of Wahlberg Damon on the Liberace/Bafta question.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,892 spank_inferno


    I would normally skip past the musical guest but Paloma Faith is always good.

    Well, 'Behind the Candelabra' is a sore subject for all concerned.

    A terrific film but, Hollywood now being more conservative now than the 1950s wouldn't touch it.

    I felt that they were laughing at him rather than with him.

    Yeah they were, especially when Graham showed the lads a pic of his jumper on Top Gear & to see if he was wearing lipstick as his lips were a bright colour :D

    Laffed out loud when Graham said :D" I'm Irish too" to Bill Murray, but how could you forget Gaybo for Terry Wogan as i know Tubridy is forgettable enough

    as his only interview he done in the UK was the Culture Show on Hyde Park On Hudson last year.

    Yeah I'm fairly sure he was talking about the Late Late Show, that was show where an unknown Jason Byrne, who was in the audience, tried to be funny by asking Bill Murray a stupid question.

    Damon is always cool too


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,892 spank_inferno


    This weeks episode was again very good.

    Lower key guests, but Miriam Margoyles steals the show.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 16,283 Mod ✭✭✭✭ quickbeam


    As she did last time too. Her and Will I Am were electric together.
