Enough Rope with Andrew Denton is the best Australian, nay, the best talk show in the world. He is the best interviewer I have ever seen, even better than Parkinson.
Andrew just is Andrew. He does not try to imitate any other talk show host, his style is unique. He doesn't use any cue cards, autocue... any of that. He just learns his questions before hand and also just follows the interviewee wherever they go. He has this uncanny knack of getting his subjects to cry, which I think shows how GOOD he is.
The most annoying thing I have found with other (especially American) talk show hosts is that they all ask the same questions. It's like they all meet up and pool their questions. A prime example of this is Hugh Laurie. YES we know that he's English and that he puts on the accent for House. And yet EVERY.SINGLE.INTERVIEW he's done, they've gone, "so you're British?" Andrew doesn't ask the same questions as everyone else, and I think that's what makes him such a good interviewer. The audience/viewers really gets heaps of information from watching the show
