    ;)The LolCats site is a great source fun but it also has a sub-site for Celebrities.

    I just found this gem that I had to share

    He played a V-E-R-Y gay and stupid Prince of Wales against Rowan Atkinson in an early "Black Adder" series about 10 (15?) years ago.

    I always do a double take when I see him in (Emma Thompson's) "Sense and Sensibility."

    I heard he had his start in comedy. Your picture seems to confirm that. lol!

    Oooooh. I LOVED Black Adder!

    And Suz, Hugh Laurie was simply brilliant playing Bertie Wooster in the series Jeeves and Wooster. Here's a snippet:

    OMG, I love Black Adder - didn't make the connection given it was a long time ago.

    I see the Minnie the Moocher video from before he was in the Black Adder series. It's a set of series of PG Wodehouse' "Jeeves and Wooster" stories. Laurie played "Bertie Wooster", the hapless aristroctrat constantly chased by debutantes, with Jeeves, the brilliant butler getting the silly monied master out of trouble. It's brilliantly funny! House is altogether out of character of everything I've ever seen him do.

    by the way, the Minnie the Moocher is my favorite, but there were musical numbers that were just as silly in most of the shows.

    Witz, the Minnie the Moocher is my favourite too.
    (Tee dee hee dee hee, Sir)

    Here's another one, almost as silly.

    I'm going to poke around and see if I can find the 47 Ginger Headed Sailors episode, which was truly a thing of brilliance.

    Trinity, thanks for the videos. Too funny. He's much better looking now than he was then. The double standard of aging is alive and well with Hugh Laurie. :)

    Star, don't thank me, it was my ever-lovin' other half who posted this. I've only just found it.

    I introduced him to this site and now I've created a monster...
