The barman sketch


I’ve been a longtime fan of Hugh Laurie. He’s such a wonderfully charming fool in Jeeves and Wooster, and he’s brilliantly nasty in House.

This weekend I’ve been watching episodes of A Bit of Fry and Laurie, a sketch comedy show he and Stephen Fry did on the BBC in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It follows a bit in the footsteps of Monty Python but adds several twists, including musical numbers (mostly by Laurie).

The clip above highlights Fry and Laurie’s impeccable timing.
