Many of you won't recognise the skinny guy, he is House MD and he is English, but Stephen Fry clearly wrote these 3 sketches and he also wrote the invaluable
"The Ode Less Travelled", which I recommend to anyone as a poetry handbook.

Thanks for the links to Steven Fry they are so worth watching, he runs a TV series called QI at the moment which if you get the chance is quite a fun programme, they play on many things there..

It says something that Laurie, the fall guy, became the highest paid actor ever on American television.

On the plus side Fry is pretty successful too.

QI doesn't engage me because it never gives any issue more than a few glib quips.
