Brian Blessed is hysterical

May 5th, 2008 (12:19 am)

Just watched this week's edition of Have I Got News For You guest-hosted this week by Brian Blessed.

OMG. I'm only just regaining my breath from laughing so hard during it. I haven't laughed so much in ages that I was actually crying (and making strange squeaking noises) during his Everest story during the missing word round.

I cannot recommend this enough to be watched : BBC iplayer should have it up for a few more days at the very least, though I doubt it'll work for anyone outside the UK, alas.

It was the intermittent gulping of water that got me!

It's the way he went from splashing water into the glass, to almost pouring it in his ear, to eventually just grabbing the decanter and knocking it straight back! Oh lord...

It had me literally rolling around on the settee clutching my sides laughing too.

Thanks for the pointer. I generally don't watch HIGNFY anymore. But it was very funny. The headlines and the water were great.

I had to have it recommended to me myself. Sort of got out of the habit of watching it as often as I used to - both HIGNFY and Buzzcocks actually.
