Tête-à-tête with His Loveliness

There’s a charming interview with Stephen Fry found on youtube, the first part of which I have embedded below. It is about half an hour discussion between him and Craig Ferguson on the latter’s late night talkshow. What makes this otherwise lovely discussion between two old friends truly remarkable is that in addition to off-hand references to things such as Bertrand Russell’s Principa Mathematica or quoting Wordsworth it was recorded without the benefit (or respective lack thereof) of the studio audience. If you are anything like me, you’ll find it very bizarre and absolutely liberating at the same time not to be provided a cue when someone cracked a joke or was being ironic.

Anyway, enjoy.
