Quotes

Stephen Fry: I don't think even the Prince of Wales could name his 8 great grandparents. And if he couldn't, coming from the most famous family in the world, then which of us can? And that's only 3 generations back, and it goes up quickly: 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, etc. - 20 generations back and you're in the millions. And if you can't name your 8 great grandparents - 1 whom may be Jewish, 1 of whom may be Arabic, 1 of whom may be of any race that you can think of under the sun; that may not have shown through ...

Stephen Fry: Fat Elvis or Oscar Wilde Redux?
12 January 2016 | by The_late_Buddy_RyanSee all my reviews

A commenter on netflix.com (who only watched the first 10′) suggests that Fry may be edging into his "fat Elvis" phase with this one, but I submit that even during his fat phase Elvis could still belt out "Suspicious Minds" with the best of them. And yes, this is basically a 1½ hour improv'd infomercial, and Fry does seem a little fidgety at first.

Once he got to the bit about the "Australian heartburn" accent though, it was clear that he was totally on form. There's a charming riff on the mobile library van as the Internet-equivalent of his teenage years, a compelling theory about why dogs are so different from wolves, and who else could read the closing lines of a scholarly biography (Richard Ellmann's of Oscar Wilde) and not leave a dry eye in the house?

His amazing fluency never seems glib; after his initial fidgets, he never loses connection with the audience, except maybe when he lapses into German or, on one occasion, Rumanian. He does a great impression of HRH Prince Charles (Penn Gillette though, not so much). The well polished anecdotes about the Royal Family and QI-style factoids go down pretty smoothly, even if you've already heard them in one form or another.

Another Netflix critic objects that Fry, despite his well known Cambridge credentials, uses "reverence" as a verb. I say that if Mark Twain can do it, then why not Stephen Fry? As far as I'm concerned, he can use "oberaffentittenturbogeil" as a preposition if he wants to.
