Product Description

Graham Norton: The Best of So Graham Norton (DVD)

Amazon.com

Part talk-show host, part comedian, and all-out extrovert, the very Irish and very gay Graham Norton is one of the few people who deserves all the adjectives that are thrown at him: "bawdy," "saucy," "outrageous," "extreme," and "hilarious" are a few of them. His BBC talk show, So Graham Norton, is something that you just couldn't find in America: a rampant exercise in audience titillation that wallows gloriously in bizarre human behavior. Okay, so it sounds like something hosted by Ricki Lake (who's been one of Norton's guests), but in reality it's more like an audience-interactive NC-17 Saturday Night Live, with occasional breaks for celebrity chit-chat. If you ever wanted to see Orlando Bloom, Gillian Anderson, Cher, Sophia Loren, or Dolly Parton (a Norton favorite) break the talk-show mold with bawdy sex talk, then your dreams have come true. And Norton's cringe-inducing yet compulsively watchable audience polls, which ask common folk to relate embarrassing, adult-oriented tales, reveal a European openness (and sense of humor) that just wouldn't fly here if tried in the U.S. Alas, for most American Norton fans, this DVD will be something of a letdown, as it takes bits and pieces from various shows and splices them together, instead of showcasing separate episodes. (One of Norton's strengths is his inspired pairings of A-list and B-list celebs in an entire episode.) Still, this greatest-hits style compilation will provide a wild-ride intro and satiate fans eager to revisit prime Norton moments--especially uncensored. A little unexpurgated Norton is better than none at all! --Mark Englehart

Right up front it must be confessed this is humor from the high school boy's bathroom. But what's wrong with that? If that's not your speed, pass. But if you can tolerate a reminder of that brand of humor that stroked your funny bone when you were a teenager, then this is the ticket. Norton is a fast-witted, outrageous, flamboyant, extroverted class clown, and about the best at this particular game (low-brow sexual humor). The star-studded guests, including Elton John, Cher, Dolly Parton, Dustin Hoffman, Ozzy Osbourne, etc. the list goes on and on, are fun to watch in their unguarded moments when they use dirty words and talk about things that just aren't talked about on other talk shows. Nothing sophisticated here, but still worth your time. Will cleanse you of a dozen different sexual hang-ups.

I LOVE the Graham Norton shows, and watch the current one every week. So when I read the 2-starred rating that said that all he does is juvenile x-rated humor for an immature audience I figured that person just wasn't used to his humor, that he or she was exaggerating and probably hadn't watched the whole thing. Well, if I only had this one DVD to go by, I wouldn't like Graham Norton either. It only focused on the sex stuff. I'm no prude (no, really I'm not), but his show works because it balances out the "naughty" stuff with the clever. He IS a great comedian. This DVD just doesn't demonstrate his well-rounded comic ability.

This is one of the best dvd's ever. It is on the funny level of the BBC's COUPLING or the US's Seinfeld.

So Graham Norton and the Graham Norton Experience are incredibly entertaining late night talk shows where the topics are completely absurd, the sexual references abundant, and the humor is nonstop.

He engages his audience in asking questions about their personal lives, finds interesting characters to call, and has the most random ideas tossed out which leave us shaking our heads saying I cant believe he is doing this. Some examples of his humor include showing a can of cock soup to Sophia Lauren, calling up a sex addict named "Rocket man" with Elton John, putting a classified ad in a magazine called "Holes", and getting pillows that looked like a set of breasts for Dolly Parton.

Mind you this show is not sleazy as Howard Stern or Jerry Springer are. Its just plain fun.

Norton finds some of the most incredible people out there who in themselved are hilarious such as a nude skiier, a man whose website is based on balloon fetishes, and the lovely Pam who can play the recorder in the most interesting of places.

I really love the range of celebrities that he has on the shows too which include Chris Rock, Ricky Lake, Dan Ackroyd, Jacqueline Bisset, Shirley McClaine, Pam Anderson, Dustin Hoffman, Elton John, John Goldberg, and a lot of musical talents. Since this in not a regular talk show, these celebs seem so relaxed, and are having such a good time, that they start relating bizarre moments or off the wall experiences they have had.

This may not be for those who have children because the conversation is sexually charged but its all good fun. Graham Norton and his sidekick Miss Betty (an ever present audience member)are naturally likeable and good humored. Please enjoy this set or catch it on Comedy Central or BBC.

.....not in one sitting because my stomach hurt so much from laughing. Not for the faint of heart or the easily offended. But so - roll around "I cannot BELIEVE they just said/did that" - funny! I wish I could find more DVDs of Graham Norton! Loved it!

Graham Norton has been a star for several years now in England and most of western Europe.

His show is not intended to have any specific agenda besides pure fun. For those of you who have not seen any of his British shows, but have got to see His new Comedy central show be aware that this DVD is sort of the Directors cut or uncensored version of what you will see on American TV.

In England most people don't care about the "F" and "S" words so be prepared to hear a good dose of both. Graham Norton has been able to capture broad British audience.

Openly Gay Graham Norton says that he has plenty of straight men in England come to him and admit that they love his show and watch it together with their girlfriends or wifes.

This DVD is a selection of his funniest shows with mostly American celebrities to help sell better here in the U.S.

Graham Norton is one of England's National Treasures. His humor is sharp, crisp, and clever. He includes his audience and displays a great amount of charm when interviewing his special guests. He is known on both sides of the Atlantic as a comedian. Although, he acts as host in this DVD he really is a comic. I highly recommend this DVD for anyone that loves British humor, Comics, or just wants to have a good old laugh.
