Most people seem to believe that the guest is the most boring part of shows like “The Tonight Show” or “The Daily Show.” I always say it depends entirely on the guest. For instance, last night’s “Daily Show” guest was 2010 Golden Globe nominee, and future Oscar nominee, Colin Firth. I’ve always known that Firth was eloquent and suave, but I had no idea the man was so hilarious. The interview starts a bit slowly, but in the second half Firth brings up the nude fish tank scene from A Single Man and the stories that pursue are hilarious.
“I’m floating around like some pre-Cambrian aquatic life form and there are people…I had to say I expected people to be sitting there. Most of those chairs were empty.”
He may not be a frontrunner, but I sure hope that Colin Firth’s Oscar campaign features many more interviews like this one. Check it out after the jump.
