About the author


  1. Hullo is very common. Its just that everyone thinks they're saying "hello"
    Ever used it as an expression of surprise – you said hullo possibly without knowing it.

  2. Why didn't Stephen just qualify the shiny baby faux pas by explaining that what he actually meant, when he referred to a newly born baby, was that it was so new, it was still wet and hence, "shiny"?
    I saw that.
    Didn't anyone else?

  3. The last one, about the Acropolis is true. They were very smart and always wanted to perfect things so every line is bend, so that when you look up to it it appears straight.

  4. And then Stephen revealed his plans for a child buffing workshop, where craftsmen will get toddlers to a high sheen. More lacquer little boy?

  5. 1:53, Classic Winding Up Stephen. having his pants made on looms by exquisite boys, I can't wear these, he has a mole. such a gouging dig and yet hysterically funny.

  6. Didn't realise Stephen Fry is coming to my suburb of Dublin to give 2 talks at a book festival and I didn't know until both were sold out. Totally gutted

  7. it's 2019 and even after seeing it for I don't even know how many times, the acropolis bit has yet again left me in stitches

  8. I can transliterate "Pasne" into Google and it somehow knows I'm trying to look up Pince-nez glasses.
    There's even an Urban Dictionary entry for "Madeira Pince-Nez" a few results down.

  9. Stephen's applauding and genuine guffaw at Matt Lucas's Knock-Knock joke is priceless! Not only is the joke funny, but also, I'm sure, Stephen being Stephen, loved, (and was relieved at), the fact that Matt cleverly got him back after he corrected him!

  10. Why did you not include the two instances on Emma Thompson's appearance where she poked fun at Stephen? One had her point out that Stephen was the first citation in the Oxford English Dictionary under the entry for "Luvvie"; whilst the other had her shaking her chest at him!

  11. Sherry monocle 🤣🤣🤣🤣 this has replaced beer goggles in my vocabulary. Also bill bailey has become the "dalai farmer"

  12. I sometimes tell my cat "you're the furriest one" in Phil Jupitus's Stephen Fry voice, but no one ever laughs because it's a pretty obscure reference and I live alone.

  13. That Sarah woman gets on my bloody nerves. It's like having chalk on a blackboard listening to it. Also…The thought of her breeding makes me want to pull an ear off.

  14. Great teamwork by the panelists on "They say of the Acropolis where the Parthenon is…". Brilliant piece of television.

  15. I dumbfounded by my love for this show. All seasons, both hosts, the vast majority of guests.

    QI might be the best thing BBC has ever produced, including the the rich wealth led by Sir David Attenborough. It's rarified trivia filtered with base and raunchy jokes. That's all it is. And it's _great_.

  16. Fifty people showing off how clever they all are, and I can't understand a f—ing word. Are they speaking English?

  17. I think it's sort of sad Sarah millican won't be a mum …. imagine how hillarious it would be if she was your mum

  18. The last bit with the Acropolis was more like abusing Steven, not just poking fun. As he said to Sandi, "You have no idea!"

  19. I dunno where Jimmy Carr gets off making fun of other people's posh accents when he laughs like an heiress in an anime and looks like the guy Our High-Born Heroine ditches to live happily ever after with Our Poor But Honest Hero in act three.
