Best laughs on TV

10/10
Author: Tammy L. Griffin-Newman
25 October 2010

Im an American girl who watches every Graham show aired. I DVR them ALL. He has become my favorite 60min of every day. I have never laughed so hard at any talk show in my 44 years. The love of my life promised me that when we set a date to marry, we WILL be in Grahams studio at one of his shows.Love this guy and I promise that you will too. I rented his Best of the Graham Norton Show from Netflix. My sister and brother-in-law were visiting from Fla. and had never even heard of Graham. After they watched the video they said they were going to check and see if they get the BBC in the south. I have made fans out of them. I hope they can share the laughs with their friends as I have. Keep up the fantastic work Graham, and I look forward to seeing you in person on my honeymoon.

Classy show

9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This talk show is great value. Very funny with first class guests. Norton is attentive, witty, flattering without being insincere, and genuinely interested in his guests. Very few guests come across as boring or uncomfortable but the editing is sharp, and if one guest is firing, they tend to focus on them. The format is near perfect, with the interviews interspersed with very creative audience participation segments, stunts the guests are asked to do, and performances by fantastic rock bands at the end. Among the show's negatives is that there are few women guests. Sometimes Norton jokes about British celebrities that viewers in the US or Australia won't have heard of. And Norton's jokes sometimes veer towards the smutty. Sometimes he gets so risqué the more conservative American guests are clearly shocked, but it can be funny when Norton throws in a naughty observation.

Tom Cruise are you kidding me?

10/10

I can't believe I found this gem. One day I caught huge names on the screen while flipping through the channels! This show has bigger stars on his show than any American show. Mr Billionv$$$ man Tom Cruise to be found in all his sexy glory on this show? Yes he's "quasi promoting" The 2014 Edge of Tomorrow--but this is a dream for me and by listening to some female screams in the audience, others as well. Tom is an amazing actor, producer, director and has been delighting us with fantastic films for decades. I was hooked @ "Legend" had no idea who this guy was but that film is still in my dreams decades later.. Fassbender-Barry Manilow, Jean Gautier ICONS? Legends Real stars letting loose, actually I dislike when they try to remain composed.Prefer them realizing they don't have to deal with American paparazzi-

This is better than the Americas telly!!! Let it rip, let it go-I love this show, thank you Graham 2007-gimme more.

Consistently the best chat show on TV

5/10
Author: studioAT from United Kingdom
27 December 2016

I don't know how the producers/bookers of this show keep doing it. Every week they seem to get the best guests. OK, so I know they're only on to promote their book/film/album, but at least they're on our screens.

It's a bit of a hit and miss chat show at times, largely because all the guests are on at once, sat awkwardly together. Sometimes this makes for a better show when they're all bantering with each other, but sometimes you get one guest who clearly is the oddball out.

Norton's charm adds to the proceedings, but smartly it's all about the guests. For week on week A list celeb interviews, this show is the only place to go.

The Graham Norton Show

8/10
Author: Jackson Booth-Millard from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I used to love the host of this new chat show on occasion in his Channle 4 programmes, So and V, and being against the likes of Jonathan Ross and Parkinson at the time, it was interesting to see this try and rival. BAFTA winning, and British Comedy Award nominated Graham Norton here gets his own regular style chat show, no camp and over the top sexual comedy involved, there would be the occasional breakaway, but that's all. The show would star with a few jokes about recent events and the guests featuring, two or three guests are brought in to talk about and promote/plug their recent venture in film, music, television or whatever else, including past career, there would be a musical performance by a singer or band, and the final part I will explain soon. Guests have included Kim Cattrall, Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom, Samantha Morton, Joan Rivers, Jenny Eclair, Louis Walsh, Ioan Gruffudd, Jessie Wallace, Jo Brand, David Tennant, The Proclaimers, Julia Sawalha, Liz Smith, Robert Webb, Barbara Windsor, Dustin Hoffman, Mika, Dawn French, Tori Amos, Gérard Depardieu, Joan Collins, Jason Donovan, Rupert Everett, Miriam Margolyes, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Matt Lucas, Sinéad O'Connor, Jennifer Coolidge, Enrique Iglesias, Jon Bon Jovi, Joanna Lumley, Alice Cooper, Gareth Gates, Dennis Hopper, Ardal O'Hanlon, Joss Stone, Natalie Imbruglia, Brian Capron, Courtney Love, Katie Melua, Gabriel Byrne, Letitia Dean, Backstreet Boys, Melanie Chisholm (Mel C), Josh Hartnett, Jackie Collins, John Waters, Westlife, Frankie Boyle, Elle Macpherson, K.T.

My favourite part of the show (technically a main reason for me to watch) is the red chair (originally called "That's All We've Got Time For), where a member of the studio audience sits down, obviously Graham finds out their name, where their from and what they do, and they have a short story or anecdote to tell that has to be interesting and funny, and if they start to bore Graham and the audience he has a lever by his side to pull and eject them backwards off the chair, if they do have a good story they are allowed to walk. Very good!
