TOP THREE: Finnegans Wake vs Pop Culture: NUMBER TWO: On Language, by Fry and Laurie

Personal, subjective rankings with a short commentary.

Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie had a sketch comedy show where they did and said many funny things. In two memorable sketches, Fry plays an obnoxious intellectual with a bad case of logorrhea, with Laurie as a befuddled straight man. As we see, Fry makes many salient points about language, demagoguery, beauty, and charred Panzers. Also, his bowl cut only accentuates his hyper-affectatious performance.

What are some of your favorite sketches from A Little Fry & Laurie? Let us know in the comments.
