Best TV Promo EVER.

I have GOT to get Hugh Laurie on the podcast. The whole “never having met” thing seems to be the stumbling block at this stage.

Who Is the Secret Cameo in DEADPOOL 2?




    Get Craig (Ferguson) to introduce you?

  2. Keith says:

    I too would love to hear Hugh Laurie in the NerdDen. That guy is all kinds of funny. Really talented too at pretty much everything.

  3. Steve says:

    Don’t forget he was also great in the Black Adder series. I read his novel “The Gun Seller ” and kept picturing House as the main character of the novel.

  4. DefconDan says:


    Annnnd calling comedy pun Time of Death at…. 3/7/11 5:08am

  5. Murphy1d says:

    If you don’t get Hugh on your podcast we will inundate you with as many bad puns as Hugh-manly possible. We’re talking puns the size of Hugh-ston, TX.

    It will be a Hugh-mane process, though. As it turns out there’s not a Hugh-ge list of words that start with Hugh. Maybe it’s just the Hugh-midity, but I will admit at least some Hugh-mility. Yes, this was a terribly bad attempt at Hugh-mor.

  6. Bassmingo says:

    Both fry and laurie please, anyone who saw the recent “reunited” programme will agree…

  7. “Do or do not, there is no try!” – Yoda

    I think that about sums it up . . . . except for don’t F%&# it up and get Hugh on the podcast.

    btw: Fillion Fuster Clucks . . . . amazing.

  8. Damian Black says:

    Just ask him. If not, I’ll make an attempt at it. Be interesting and confidant and nothing stands in your way. Also, Hugh Laurie is awesome no matter what he does.

  9. if you have Hugh Laurie on the podcast i will …. uh hmmm….. i’ll buy four copies of your book? or maybe i’ll work up the courage to try out my jokes on a live audience…… #hopeIdontsuck #hashtagsOutsideofTwitter #AspiringComedian

  10. Lucy says:

    Churros and child abuse, always hilarious.

  11. Peter says:

    Please, please do this. This and Tennant. But that I can wait on. Do this. Hard.

  12. Lisa G says:

    Hugh would probably love to come on the podcast and talk about his new album. Slip Craig a note in study hall so he can ask Steven in gym class to ask Hugh at lunch …since, you know, Hugh still doesn’t text.

  13. @The_Nicktator says:

    That would be awesome. However, for shits and giggles, you should have him in character as Dr. House for the first 10-15 minutes.

  14. DefconDan says:

    House is awesome!! Come on Chris, he’s got a lot of comedy in his resume, work that wit of yours and get him on the podcast! Just promise not to drool all over him.

    PS Liking the hostful podcasts a lot… great job you guys!!

  15. Dinghus Khan says:

    Excellent promo. Comedy and Skepticism are the nexus of my podcast universe (Adam Carolla, Penn Jillette, Phil Plaitt, George Hrab, The Skeptics Guide, Adam Savage, etc). MORE PLEASE! These guys are funny MF’ers.

  16. Tohaku Blackheart says:

    I smell a large amount of win in this commercial.

  17. Chad H says:

    I remember when House first came out. I was a big Hugh fan from Bit of Fry and Laurie and several other things he had done (one of the best was when he and Fry were on The Young Ones) Well I heard it was a drama show, said F That I’m not gonna bother watching one of my favorite British comedians on a drama show, and wrote it off for a good couple of years. Finally I came to my senses around season 2 and have watched it and enjoyed it since. I vote for asking Craig unless you want to ask both Fry and Laurie to come on the show together, asking Fry to ask Hugh sounds kinda tacky IMHO.

  18. smartbunny says:

    Is that Cody from Dexter?

  19. Kevin says:

    Try to get Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie on the podcast. That would be epic.

  20. Westley Roberts says:

    I believe Hugh would be an amazing guest to talk to not only for house but for his huge comedic background. He is an unbelievable actor.

  21. Kristina says:

    Please have Hugh Laurie on the podcast. Please, please, please!

  22. Saso Alauf says:

    ask Craig to ask Stephen to ask Hugh…

  23. Dan says:

    Definitely go with the @CraigyFerg connection. Hugh Won one of the very few ‘golden mouth organs’!

  24. Nick says:

    Ask them both to come on then Fry, Laurie, Hardwick, Ray and Mira voltron into a comedy goliath the likes of which has never been seen before.

  25. Jen Tidwell says:

    Yes, do ask @stephenfry because Hugh detests electronic communication (including email) – this is per @stephenfry himself.

  26. Jack Bad says:

    would be epic.

  27. Saso Alauf says:

    we could all ask stephen, lol

  28. Wesley Marshall says:

    Yeah defiantly have him on. His sketch show and his comedy background living in england would be great to talk about. He’s a really great piano player as well. I mean go and watch his interview thing on Craig’s show from last week it was great.

  29. Ted says:

    Hey ask @CraigyFerg to introduce you, he was just on his show.

  30. AdamC says:

    Seconding the “ask @stephenfry” tactic. Weirder things have happened.

  31. Eric taylor says:

    Yes Hugh do. Please get on the pod cast

  32. Stacey0 says:

    Why not go for broke and ask @stephenfry to ask Hugh. The TwitterForce is strong as you know.

  33. Saso Alauf says:

    while House used to be a 12 out of 10, and now isn’t as good as it was, a 10 out of 10 is still decent…

  34. Rebecca (@snbcsinger) Young says:

    Saw this during the Superbowl and laughed hysterically. Although everyone else in the room laughed as well, I was surprised to hear that I was the only one in a room full of 8 people that watches House.

  35. Matt Harshman says:

    Definitely see if you can snag Hugh Laurie! Then ask him if he’ll do the “Accent” episode of Comedy Film Nerds. If Graham is forced to do his shitty British accent, Laurie can club him a la Churro Boy. If Graham is forced NOT to do an accent, Hugh can do the interview in his amazingly natural American voice.

  36. db says:

    Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one who still watches House, but I’m glad that’s not the case.

    And Hugh Laurie on the podcast? Yes, please. 🙂

  37. Fejimanz says:

    have you never seen “A Bit of Fry and Laurie”?! hilarious… this doesn’t make me want to meet him more… since it is already at maximum…

  38. an0nymouz says:

    YES! PLEASE!! Please have Hugh on your podcast!!
