wasn't our finest meeting
we EMAIL each other
I get them in all the best places
not a hair in sight!
heard of contact lenses hello?
well he wasn't wearing glasses today, and having google imaged him, he isn't wearing glasses on any of the first dozen or so pics
more than likely he's British if he saw him in England
and you've got as many questions as I can answer between now and 17.15.
ie do I, foppyish, chadders and GetOffMyLawn know who this person is?
or because the person is well known?
Either way, my guess is: thewarn
look at all the thewarn love in this thread!
I hope he can feel the warmth.
because he didn't make it to the train station toilet in time.
not right this moment
Redress this someone.
I'm far too busy.
It's usually Stephen Fry.
but they have something in common (in terms of their formative years)
but yeah, you're kind-of in the right ballpark
But you're on the right lines.
*might not be quite the right spelling - Darling / Percy
or that kind of comedy?
but probably a bit more populist.
Clue: long-standing BBC quiz show team captain.
better not be, He wasn't in footlights!
music comedy man bailey
or earlier in era?
this is an outrage. Ban request.
I bet it was Hugh Dennis.
beat you by 2 full mins tbf granddad!
Wikipedia said it could be Andy Parsons too. FOOTLIGHT MAFIA BBC WANKERS.
then disappeared on holiday without leaving the answer. He's already owed at least one banning for that.
Then we should consider it a success.
None of you have got it, by the way
"the Drowned In Sound lot are a bit highly strung, aren't they?"
to think I defended the mods
he's not footlights but i reckon that's who it was
now you mention it
Great work, MC Shit Quiz.
Wikipedia says he was in Footlights
I remember him from popular sports quiz show They Think It's All Over
On a scale of 1 to polka dot, this barely registers.
implying that acting was not the only string to his bow.
but 'long-standing BBC quiz show team captain.' made me think, no way would he be talking about a quiz show that was 10+ years since it was on telly, and Gary was his captain, he was just a regular.
I'm so ashamed of/for you.
he sat on the far end, and was like Jonathan Ross was on David Gower's team.
oh well, sorry about that!
Thought you were gonna be a right Marckee about this.
How dare you try to foist your wrongness off on Jimmy whatshisface.
IMDb says he's an actor. "Various Roles" in Who Dares Wins, apparently
"not sure where you heard that, because I assure you I am not an actor"
"but it says so on IMDB"
"I only did various roles in who dares wins, I mean, if you have a go at archery at Center Parcs, it doesn't make you an archer, right?"
"good point Rory, good point"
I'm not his fucking biographer.
Jeez, I give you lot a little "guess the celebrity" game and you go hugging off with the ball when you don't guess it :D
she said "are there any people on there who would hunt you down and then stand outside your window doing this" and then pulled a zombie-at-the-window face :D
"No, I haven't acted in 15 years. It's why I don't really describe myself as an actor any more. It'd be a bit like the Queen Mother describing herself as 'alive'"
"Good point, good point. Why aren't you on QI any more?"
then you know you've already lost
oh yes I can
that doesn't count.
I spotted thewarn this morning. He was cantering along Ely station with a bike. Nice technical jacket too.
Satisfying end to the thread. Thanks c_c_b!
I still missed the fucking train though.
Buys all the female students drinks.
Rory McGrath... He naturally funny, he don't need gimmick like big collar or pens in top pocket. He funny. He don't need to be post-modern!
