Watch The Graham Norton Show

The Graham Norton Show is a television talk show hosted by comedian and actor Graham Norton. This is a U.K. show that is taped before a live studio audience. Each episode runs for approximately one hour and usually features three guest stars and one musician. The main part of the program consists of interviewing the guests and a musical performance at the conclusion of the show.

Graham is known for having a diverse mix of celebrities on at any one time. Some panels of guests include Chris Rock with Marilyn Manson and Liam Neeson with Patrick Stewart. Graham also gets the audience involved with each episode.

The Graham Norton Show is not a traditional talk show in that it does contain sketches and sometimes crazy acts that he has not only the audience but, the guest celebrities participate in as well. In one instance he talked Liam Neeson into calling a women's cellphone number and leaving a message as his character from the movie Taken. Actor Gabriel Byrne was given the job of speaking to anyone who happened to use the public men's room during an episode and Joan Rivers had the task of fashion critic for the guests as they lined a fake red carpet on the way into the studio.

Many of the things that Graham Norton has the celebrity guests or audience participate in are embarrassing and also funny. He does however give out prizes to the people who are unlucky enough to be chosen for his latest activities. Some of which include gift certificates and vacation vouchers.

For the celebrity that is lucky enough to be involved with a show sketch, a parody based on the television show or movie they are famous for is usually what is in store for them. In one episode Cynthia Nixon got to reprise her role as Miranda in the Golden Girls version of Sex and the City. Here all the girls were women in there sixties or older.

With The Graham Norton Show you never know what is in store for the guests or the audience but, you are guaranteed to laugh.
