Friday Night with Jonathan Ross is without a doubt the funniest talk show I have ever seen, and believe me I have seen a few.
Not only does Jonathan Ross succeed in getting the most popular celebrities (mostly comedians and actors) on his sofa, he can also make them say/do things, they wouldn't consider saying/doing anywhere else.
Between guests Jonathan takes his time to reflect on the more bizarre things in society in general, and his personal life in particular. It seems to me that any trivial task can turn into a gruesome ordeal when it's left in the hands of the funny man. Luckily for us the man has no pride whatsoever, so he doesn't mind telling us about the more shameful mistakes he has made in his lifetime: RESPECT!
A special contribution to the show is made by the house band, Four Poofs and a Piano ( I'm not making this up ). Every week they pay a special tribute to one of the show's guests by wearing a customized T - shirt with his/her face on it. Besides that, every guest is introduced by the band with a song that seems to be all about them/their life.
In short: great variety of guests; wickedly funny, bizarre, and from time to time scary.
