  1. Not sure how reliable this is, but I found a facebook post by a small news website that had posted the link, and someone commented that they had worked on the show at the time that this guest wanted her dressing rooms, and confirmed that it was Beyoncé.

  2. Norton has the best talk show going. But pretty much all hosts who come from the UK beat American ones hands down. Except maybe Conan.

  3. Graham's the best at interviewing guests,
    Stephen's the best at monologues and improvised comedy,
    Conan's the best at remotes,
    Kimmel has the best pranks and great relationship with celebrities,
    Fallon's the best at game-show type segments,
    Corden's has the best singing segments.

  4. He may be born in Ireland but he talks about the government and boris as his own government … he ‘’holidays’’ in Ireland … sometimes …. maybe …. if hes got a minute … cuz it’s a shithole and with it’s inhabitants with no personality that’s why he emigrated to England … cuz we get shit done with style and panache and them fucking paddy’s struggle to even grow potatoes … rule Britannia bitches

  5. ok, how brit 'law' works, is, the parliament speaks on her behalf, and her word is law, if she is speaking, parliament cannot at the same time etc

  6. one icecube is "european"? Absolutely NOT – You never ever put ice in whisky – only in US the people put ice in their whiskEy – ice in whisky is disgusting – it destroys the flavor. watering the good stuff is a crime! And never ever use tumbler-glasses – you need to use nosing-glasses for a real whisky-experience – greetings from germany 🙂 🙂

  7. Graham is a legend, love that he is Irish , great talker and genuinely a nice guy , the Brits love him too , it’s like they keep nicking our best cough cough terry Wogan and they keep them as their own !

  8. Can we please just get one 2-3 hour interview of Graham? It would be nice to get him on a podcast or a longer interview to talk more about himself casually.

  9. Graham Norton is a great host, but anti trump anti May anti johnson anti brexit . . . pro hillary pro obama pro left and while this and he is very entertaining ha haaa ha he is not your go to guy for political analysis – oh wait I'M on a left site. What a surprise. Prorogues are not unusual. It's just the first time these guys have heard of it.

  10. I used to like Graham Norton, but I grew up and he made one Trump 'pee pee' joke too many, just spewing what his lefty globalists masters give him to say, like all TV hosts in the UK and the USA.

  11. This kind of thing can happen for a few generations after a colonising power has left an occupied country. The degree of social brainwashing that occurs during colonisation causes subsequent generations to consider their identity to be partly or entirely that of the colonising entity. I'm Irish but have a very English name because of my ancestry. Growing up in Ireland, there were certainly times of confusion for me, for example – did my family endure the genocide of the late 1800s or were they the perpetrators?

    You'll find similar mixed identities in India and Pakistan, people who were born and raised there but who speak with very old fashioned English accents and recognise the British crown as their head of state.

    In West Cork, where Graham Norton did most of his growing up, you'll find lots of people with English accents to this day. Interestingly, many or most of them will be entirely identified with Ireland, recognising that these days we are more than just of Gaelic ethnicity.

    (The amazing) Graham Norton left Ireland many years ago, when things were still quite segregated along ethnic lines – as a protestant he would have attended a different school and followed slightly different traditions at home to most Irish people. These days we've all assimilated with one another. Graham Norton has lived and worked in the UK for decades now… When in America it is just way easier for him to say that he's come from the UK, rather than trying to explain the complexities of post colonial Ireland and the varying and changing positions of ethnic identities therein.

    If you're a fan of Graham Norton's you'll know something of his own personal journey – all the travel and hippie communes – and will appreciate that his individual journey is separate to the collective journey of Ireland. This doesn't make him an outcast, so many Irish people, gay & straight, Catholic & Protestant, have had to leave this beautiful island and live their own legend. If you visit Cork will know how proud we are of him and how we get it… He's doing his thing.

  12. Wrong, Graham.

    The Queen was perfectly entitled to reject the request to prorogue parliament. She chose to accept the request.

  13. I'm like almost positive he was talking about Mariah Carey lol….Apparently she makes outlandish requests like this when she goes to events or interviews and will be a complete diva about it.

  14. Recycling is good … so here:

    BREXIT SUMMARY

    UK: We want a unicorn!
    EU: Unicorns do not exist. Instead, you can have a pony.
    UK: We vote against your pony.
    EU: We already discussed this in detail: it's a pony or nothing.
    UK: We vote against your pony.
    EU: Alright, then you get nothing.
    UK: We vote against your nothing.
    EU: … you really don't get it, do you?
    UK: We need more time to think about it.
    EU: About the pony or about nothing?
    UK: We want a unicorn.

  15. Brexit is easy to explain. The government let people who know virtually NOTHING about economics or politics decide what to do, so naturally they made what is probably the most idiotic decision possible, just like all the people who voted for Trump.

  16. this nortong guy was asked a simple question, why if the prime minister lost the majority is still prime minister, norton could not and did not answer the question, instead he came up with a lot of shit.

  17. Why would you ask a talkshow host to explain about Brexit, he knows very little about Brexit or parliament… Ignore, great host but never a political pundit

  18. Stephen Colbert, Graham Norton, Jon Stewart, Trevor Noah, John Oliver. Give them all a show where they sit around a table and chat about whatever they want to. Who would watch that?

  19. The word Brexit is shorthand for BRitain EXITing the EU. Although the majority of British people want to leave the EU British politicians are determined that we remain in the EU. This will end badly!

  20. Graham Norton is Irish – it's not his Government and he might not understand how the system works. He lives in the UK and by a quirk of the Treaty giving independence to the Irish Republic, he has the right of residence in the UK as well as the right to vote. He probably does understand what is going on, but is being too polite than to bore Colbert with facts he would not understand.

    The Queen has far more powers than most people know. Although Her Majesty is a constitutional monarch, she still retains the majority of the powers of feudal monarchs. There are several videos on this on YouTube – look them up and you'd be shocked. Far more extensive powers than the United States President.

    Suffice to say, that a Parliamentary democracy sometimes does go through constitutional crises and the current one is almost as bad as when the Confederates decided to secede from the Union.

    The only thing that has prevented a Civil War up until now is that the Government is still trying to deliver what the people decided. If the Government was prevented from delivering by either Parliament or the Law courts, then the country would be alight from one end to the other and there would be widespread violence. It could still happen, as the losers in the Referendum refuse to accept the democratic vote.

  21. If you’re Canadian and old enough, you’ll know about proroguing parliament 😑 – it’s usually a jerk move in a scandalous time! Sounds about right, BoJo!

  22. If Brexit meant we got Graham over here on our late night, I would say hell yes let the idiots shot themselves in the economic foot.

  23. Seriously screw Trintellix and big pharma for trying to shove an anti depressant down my throat every time I want to watch the Late Show.

    Doctors, nurses, the medical industry and medicine are all very necessary but I don’t need a billion dollar pharmaceutical company reminding me how depressed I should be every time I seek some comedic relief. Good grief.

  24. globalists trying to give away their countries to bankers ..at work … trust me i'm european … all european countries being dismantled by bankers … and this is a good thing , right ? traitors at work … sorry i'm not funny as them …

  25. Graham Norton Explains What The Hell Is Going On With Brexit. NO, a left wing millionaire tells another libtard nothing to do with Brexit as they have no idea, it's just what they think they should say.

  26. i used to love Colbert back on the Colbert Report. i was happy for him when he made the move to late night. but he became a corporate, liberal mouthpiece with a brainwashed audience and now he's my least favorite. RIP
