that was hard to watch. he's horrible isn't he really?
Any interviews I've read or seen with him I think he comes across as a self important twat.
Love him in life of Brian and holy grail right enough
It was like watching an English Robin Williams.
Tears of a clown...
to help finish writing his book - no gratitude for the privileged position he's in that lends itself to being able to afford such luxury
and then clearly getting all insecure about the fact that alan carr plays to 12,000 people. all old comedians seem to get weird and needy about audience sizes i've noticed.
then when he was just sat throwing nuts at alan and then his drink it felt like there was a proper undercurrent of pent-up aggression.
I was willing Alan to chuck stuff back, but for ages he wasnt.
Cleese was lucky Carr eventually tipped the bottle over him otherwise Cleese would have established a reputation as a bullying cunt.
(PS I used to think Cleese WAS excrutiatingly funny, and I only think that Carr is amiable, but I was soooo on Carrs side last night, Cleese was horrible......I would have felt like hitting him)
Which makes it even worse.
Is a question I've asked myself a lot recently. Like, someone has produced something a bit crap or been a tit in an interview and you can go, yeah but they did Life of Brian etc. IDK.
Have to do it on a case by case
Ricky Gervais - NO
John Cleese - POSSIBLY
Ringo Starr - PROBABLY
Palin's diaries paint him as a decent enough fella but who can often times be a complete pain in the arse. Still at least he's not Eric Idle.
