5 minutes with Stephen Fry (2009)


Quite. Possibly. The only person you’ve seen interviewed who warms up for it by quoting in Greek (the slogan for the US Post depot in New York).

Stephen Fry’s brain is a kind of encyclopaedia or Super Curator, which draws from a huge variety of sources of information, of culture, of history, and then connects them in a fascinating and relevant way into whatever topic is under discussion.

Interview questions include:

What’s it like to be Stephen Fry?

What is the favourite part of your career?

Are you ever starstruck?  (Oh yes, all the time… I remember when I met Martina Navratilova I could barely even speak)

One thing you would change about British life if you could?
