You might recall last week that there was a photo circulating of Jono and Ben at The Graham Norton Show. As it turns out, they got to feature in the infamous Red Chair.

This is one of the best episodes of The Graham Norton Show featuring Steve Carrell, Kristen Wiig, Chris O’Dowd and Josh Groban. Live chat shows offer wonderful ad-libbing. Especially when there is a fly involved.

The BSA has taken no further action regarding a promo for The Graham Norton Show that showed a dog dressed up as Jesus.

The promo for the TV3 series, which ran before Christmas last year, showed a couple dressed as Mary and Joseph holding a dog in swaddling clothes.

One viewer complained, saying the image was offensive to Christians and demonstrated the “anything goes” mentality in New Zealand regarding jokes about Christian beliefs. Continue reading »

Just when you thought Will Smith could do no wrong… he tries to play football.

Just days after his epic Fresh Prince reunion on the set of The Graham Norton Show the actor and his son Jaden took to the pitch before Saturday’s Champions League Final in London to try their hand at penalty kicks against former Manchester United keeper Edwin Van Der Sar.

If you hit 5 million YouTube views in one day, you know you’ve done something right.

Will Smith upped the ante following his last appearance on The Graham Norton Show with the help of friends and former co-stars DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro.

A couple of weeks ago I managed to get hold of audience tickets for the taping of an episode of The Graham Norton Show in London.

Having been a fan of the show for a couple of years now, it was nice to get the opportunity to see how it’s all put together in the studio. The show films Thursday evening for a late Friday night broadcast in the UK, so the editors have sufficient time to cut the show together.

Our celebrity guests for the episode (which screens here in NZ this week) were actress Cameron Diaz, singer Rod Stewart and UK comedian Sarah Millican. Unfortunately for me (and any other cycling fans in the audience) we were also supposed to have Tour de France champ Bradley Wiggins but he had a run-in with a van on a training ride and spent the night in hospital.
