Just commenting on things that interest me

Month: October 2020

Conan O’Brien

Conan O’Brien is a VERY funny man.

You can see him on his YouTube channel, and you can listen to his “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend” podcast.

One of the things I enjoy most about his podcasts is how often he mentions that he is Irish. I think it’s in pretty much every episode!

And just to prove how Irish he is, you can watch an absolutely hilarious visit he made to the Guinness Brewery in Dublin.

His reaction to being told that there are “six steps to pouring a glass on Guinness” is worth the price of admission on its own!

Rob Brydon Interviews

In my last post I mentioned how I am enjoying some of the things which people are doing on YouTube to keep us entertained during COVID.

One of the most enjoyable of these is the series of interviews which Rob Brydon has been doing.

He has completed “Series 1” which included interviews with people like Stephen Merchant, Mattnew Rhys, Will Ferrell and more. He also talked to fellow starts of Gavin and Stacy like Ruth Jones and Alison Steadman.

Rob is a very funny man and these interviews are full of warmth and humour. Here is a link to his YouTube channel.

Series 2 has just kicked off with Matt Lucas.

Scott Adkins – The Art of Action

I have been an admirer of Scott Adkins for some time now. He’s a great martial artist, and has made some great movies (63 at present according to IMDB) – many of which are available to see on Netflix!

He had made movies with Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Michael Jai White and many others. He was even in an X-Men movie and appeared on UK TV in Holby City and Eastenders!

He is currently doing a series of interviews on YouTube with other martial arts stars. He releases about one a week. I don’t know if he is doing this because of COVID, but it certainly gives us something to look forward to every week.

He has interviewed many greats of the past, including Cynthia Rothrock, Benny Urquidez, Richard Norton, Jeff Speakman, Steven Seagal, Phillip Rhee, Loren Avedon, Dolph Lundgren and more (I should add that some of these are still making movies).

He has interviewed many current stars such as Michael Jai White, Tony Jaa, Mark Dacascos, and more.

He has interviewed many great action directors such as Gareth Evans and Chad Stahelski.

He has interviewed people I did not really know anything about such as Kane Kosugi, Marko Zaror, Daniel Bernhardt, JJ Perry, Andy Cheng, Vidyut Jammwal, Sam Hargrave and more. These are people I need to learn more about!

The interviews themselves are great, mainly I think because Scott is so enthusiastic and so modest. He clearly likes most or all of them and shows them great respect. He manages to get the best out of all of them.

Here is a link to his YouTube channel.

I cannot wait to see whom he interviews next. I think his 608K subscribers are (like me) hoping for people like Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Chuck Norris and Keanu Reeves!

Here is his most recent (21st) interview:
