Hey anyone else watching this very funny chat show from England.
Irish comedian Norton puts on a great show with plenty of laughs. His mix of guest celebs usually get a laugh ooX
He also gets good auidence involment , not just clapping when the light tells them to.
The Big Red Chair is also a highlight of the show at the end. :lol:

Havn't watched many episodes from the current season (seen up to episode 6 - missed the next 14 lol), but yeah it was a regular watch for me for a long time on ABC 2 over the last 2 and a bit years. Didn't know who some of the UK guests were, but got to know them over time. I think the show became less rude when they moved from BBC 2 to BBC 1 , from memory they even mentioned it and being more tightly edited. I

My parents got me into him through the mid 2000's when The Comedy Channel on Foxtel played some of his previous series.

Yes , a good guest that knows how to entertain an audience makes a big difference . Some actors really need a script to read to have any personality at all.( Mathew Fox :roll: nice enough person but )
It seems that Norton does usual have a comedian as a guest to help things along. Once they see a live audience they can't help themselves but start to perform . :mrgreen:

I thought the royal dolls bit was very funny, especially the comments on Will's bald spot, being able to tell it was Harry by the hair colour AND the snipe at Camilla by saying the Doll was better looking
