Hugh Laurie cracks me up

Sep 6th, 2009 | By Editor | Category: Uncategorized

I rcently was watching an old British comedy show with Rowan Atkinson when I went “hold on, hold on - I know that voice.” I was always amazed at Jen’s uncanny ability to recognize actors just from their voice; from voiceovers, narration, radio commercials, an ability I don’t usually have. But soon enough Google and YouTube were confirming my suspicions and I was laughing.

You guys know Hugh Laurie as Dr. House. But you probably have no idea that he was also the Regent on Blackadder, that he co-hosted a comedy show called “A Bit of Fry and Laurie”, that he plays guitar AND keyboards - and sings! Oh, and his American accent? FAKE. He’s a limey transplant. Never would have known from listening to him on House! This guy is SO damn talented. Check it out:
