Exhibit 35: A BIT OF FRY & LAURIE
< 1 day ago
It's Christmas in July! Grab some leftover roast goose and plum pudding (as we understand Britsh folk tend to do after the holidays), because in this exhibit we’re taking a look at the 1987 "Christmas special" of A Bit of Fry & Laurie! This British TV classic sprang, like Monty Python and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, from Cambridge University’s Footlights comedy troupe. The titular Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are now well-known on both sides of the pond, but you can listen in to discover what these two hilarious guys were cooking up in their salad days. Tune in to learn which Oscar winner worked with Fry and Laurie on an ill-fated scifi mockumentary sketch show, what Hugh Laurie thinks is mysterious, and just how fluffy, gorgeous, and lovely Stephen Fry is. If you enjoy this and other exhibits, be a patron at www.patreon.com/tvmuseum. Couch Potato memberships start at just $1/month, and supporters get access to exclusive content and swag. Join the ranks of the Tater Army today! The TV Museum Podcast is dedicated to exploring classic TV, from the westerns of the 50s, to the family sitcoms of the 80s. We trace the history of TV aliens, cops, and single girls and travel through time and space. If it’s been beamed through the air (and can be streamed through the internet), we’ll cover it! Subscribe and listen for nostalgia, analysis, and silly in-jokes, brought to you by a husband-and-wife team with a devotion to the tube.Read more »

Love the concept, love the show
It's so much fun to revisit old shows through the perspective of the present, and the hosts do a great job of presenting relevant and interesting information about the shows and the people who made them.

This husband-and-wife duo's re-examination of older TV shows through a modern lens is fun, even if you don't always agree with them.
