Oh Blackadder, You So Crazy

I watched Hugh Laurie on House for years before I realized that he played the poofy Prince in the terrific Blackadder series of shows. Nothing better than droll British comedy.

I love Blackadder. Hugh Laurie's comic partner in the old days was Stephen Fry, another great.

I knew Hugh Laurie from Blackadder and Fry and Laurie years before he did HOUSE. I would laugh hysterically every time someone declared Laurie the sexiest man alive. If they only knew.

Laurie's also an author. He wrote a book called THE GUN SELLER. It wasn't bad.

It's a testament to his talent that he could create a character as complex as House after doing comedy as broad as Blackadder. Comedy is always harder though. I need to check out the Laurie and Fry stuff. I was more of a Two Ronnies guy back in the day.
