I'd say 99.99% of Americans would only know him for that

Lovely, lovely man whom I admire greatly both professionally, but also for his views.

A great ambasssdor for Britain.

Pointless comment, do research and see the guy's a part of British comedy gold.

He has a great career and has worked hard to be successful.

Aren't most of these actually paid for?

Seems they have to be paid for, and most of the nominations actually come from the publicist.

British comedy (I assume on television here) can earn you a star in Hollywood? Makes perfect sense

'House' is pretty popular in the UK too, isn't it?

My point is also pointless as well then.
Only know the face, but don't know the name.

Compared to his comedy? Dunno, never watched it as it isn't my kind of thing but I know it was big in the us.

​What did you hope to gain from that comment? The guy has been around for 30 odd years and is know the world over. All you've done is pointed out your ignorance.

I didn't "hope to gain" anything from it, I simply was saying I had no idea who he was other than I recognised the name.



It can be whatever you interpret it as, it's a free country.
If following logic - however sarcastic, makes me a dunce to you then I shall endure this with a heavy heart...





When I was a young teen, 56k dial-up internet wasn't even commercialised. Glad you enjoyed the craic

I guess I should sign off from this thread with the following as a peace offering:

Well done Hugh.

And I'm out

I remember him from his partnership with Stephen Fry, Blackadder, Jeeves & Wooster.

Not seen his recent stuff. Quality guy
