Today has been a lazy sort of Saturday, and in the absence of any decent weekend television I have had quite a lengthy YouTube session almost entirely made up of clips from The Graham Norton Show. I remember watching him in the V and So days, turning the volume right down and straining to hear both the TV and for any sign that i was about to be caught up way past my bedtime. I have always loved his quick and slightly cruel humour, but it has been through him that I have been introduced to the comic enigma – Miriam Margolyes. She is so refreshingly without a filter, her comic timing and frequent risque topics of conversation have left me utterly helpless with laughter. So I am requiring anyone who reads this post to watch the three videos below, so that more people may know of her brilliance. This way, we might be able to get her back on GNS a few more times, so that we may hear a few more of her salacious anecdotes.
Saturday Pot Luck: Miriam Margolyes should be on TV every day
