Well, huzzah...in a sort of convoluted way. Thanks to a tip from reader Melissa Brown, I've tracked down the aforementioned "now you see it, now you don't" invisible documentary reuniting Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry. It can be found online after all, but with a bit of effort -- broken down into five 15-minute segments. And making it more convoluted, two of the segments oddly have Greek subtitles. However, for your viewing pleasure -- because I told you about it but couldn't show the thing, and you deserve better -- I've posted them all below in proper order. But best of all, I get to officially use the title I'd come up with! Huzzah, indeed.
In an odd way, though, this is all sort of appropriate as a way to pay tribute to their offbeat sketch-comedy series, A Bit of Fry and Laurie.
In another way, some people here may even prefer it presented this way -- after all, you might prefer to watch it in individual segments when you have the time, rather than block out the full 75 minutes.
The documentary takes about 5-6 minutes to get going at full pace, with a bit of background about the two fellows before finally bringing them together. But it's all worth it, most especially if you're a fan of their work. But there's a lot of fun here, regardless. It has a ton of wonderful material with old clips, and also some entertaining reminiscences and sketch-video from Emma Thompson, who actually introduced the two men in college (and who later appeared on their show, which you'll see.)
Anyway, here then, as convoluted as I can apparently make it, is at last -- Fry and Laurie: Reunited..
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
