The Graham Norton show is a funny show worth watch...Rating: 4 likes, 0 dislikes
This show is on every Saturday night on BBC America. Graham Norton has been entertaining British audiences for quite a while.
Unfortunately, I've never heard of him before this but have been watching him since and can say he's funny. If I had to pick a comparison to him, it definitely be Conan O'Brien. He and Conan share many qualities. Like Conan, Norton's comedy from what I've seen is very direct, funny and often adult in nature. In fact, in this cursing is allowed and it seems that the audience relishes in all the naughty thing Graham says and does.
His guest themselves ranging from Dustin Hoffman to Julian McMahon to Joan Collins always provide entertaining commentary.
Hoffman wasn't just funny but he went on detail about he loved and hated acting. Joan Collins came off as being heartwearming (unlike her Dynasty Character).
There are also other skits in the show that are sometimes aimed at toilet humor. A couple of times it's funny other times it's not because it's not new. Like other variety shows he also pokes fun at the latest current news and celebrities (aka Britney Spears, Paris Hilton).
However, as a whole this show is funny and the fact that the guests are more free to say whatever they want (which might be censored on American) is a plus to show.
It's a decent hour of laughs.
