Amazing talent from the star of House. We found the quirky medical series by accident and are now hooked. Love the music from his debut album too.
Great Freda. Thanks for this one. Have been a fan of his for more years than I can remember. He is a first-rate actor, comedian and a multi-talented musician, plays wonderful piano too. Saw him first in tv excerpts from “The Fringe”, donkeys years ago and he just keeps getting better all the time.
I really liked Hugh Laurie when he was appearing in Sketches on TV here.
I’ve not seen House. Perhaps I should try it.
I found his voice not really very suitable for blues and boogie, not enough grit in it. Too white and English.
However, he is undoubtedly a very good musician.
House is based on Sherlock Holmes…

Interesting comment, Friko, I suppose I’ve just been introduced to the type of music as an adjunct from Laurie as an actor. There was a documentary on TV based on the recording of the cd from New Orleans – that helped too.
Cloudia – the Sherlock Holmes attribution is spot on. That’s why it took me a while to get used to the programme (House) – I’m glad I stuck with it.
Although I didn’t think that Stephen Fry was the perfect Jeeves, I did think Hugh Laurie was the perfect Bertie Wooster in the Jeeves & Wooster series. He is an extraordinary talent.
