So every Saturday night when I crawl into bed to say hello to Klaus for the night (if you’re a fan of Dennis Leary’s stand up, you’ll get that reference), I normally watch The Graham Norton Show before crashing. Now, mind you, I don’t watch ANY other talk show. Not Dave, not Conan, and certainly not Jay, but I watch Graham every single week. Why? He makes me laugh and I like the laid back atmosphere of his show.
And I love British humor. The American talk shows are so uptight and not as funny. Conan is probably my favorite followed by Craig. But I digress. This past week Graham had Alan Davies, Sir Patrick Stewart and Liam Neeson on his show. All were awesome guests, but Liam showed how awesome he is by doing a favor for a fan.
The set up was all about how he’s filming the sequel to Taken right now. Graham brought up that famous quote from the film and asked if his fans request it when they meet him. He talked about how his son calls from school on occasion to have him leave messages on his friends voicemail, to which he said that he does (Awesome point #1).
Well there was a gal in the audience who claimed to be Liam’s first fan. She apparently had a letter to prove it and she had asked prior to the show if it was possible to ask Liam for a favor. That favor being that Liam leave her outgoing voice mail message on her cell phone. That message being the quote from Taken. Did he do it? Of course he did (Awesome point #2). With gusto I might add.
