Plugging my brain in
Coincidentally happened on a twitter thread about Ellen DeGeneres being a bit of a monster...I never knew!
i am a big fan of hers,it doesn't surprise me that she is different off camera,most comedians are,she does that show daily and it doesn't just happen,she has to be serious and demanding of her staff,i doubt she is a real bitch every day,i have seen some headlines about interviews I have seen her do and they are not negative in the slightest ,she takes the very gentle piss out of celebs and is lovely to the public guests

I shouldn't get embroiled in whether or not someone 'famous' is nice or not. They're just people and we all have our moments (fortunately not under the spotlight). Actors and comedians are perhaps hyper personalities anyway so much more liable to throw a wobbler or have off moments...it's natural.
The amount of times I've met people that have a sour reputation only to get to know then and really like them...

Life is a web spun of ghosts dreams and illusions.

Best wishes to James with his ongoing fight but it doesn't look at all promising. I think it would be difficult to err away from Graham Norton. Apologies Mr Bite and was not replying to you. Pressed the wrong buttons on my pad and easier than re writing the post by letting it lye and was meant for @peoffrey

James Whale is facing Brain, Lung, Spine and Kidney Cancer, fuck me love him or hate him that’s a fucking awful final hand to be dealt
That's a real pisser. I used to enjoy that weekly late night TV show he used to do on ITV (friday nights, IIRC). Though you'd never get away with it these days. You'd be PC-ed off the air before it was even screened.

Not sure it counts (as it’s a radio show) but Howard Stern sure is an annoying ****

The Brando one is a cracker.
Cavett was the best for me.
As for Graham Norton I've never seen him do a serious interview. It's just a big comedy show.
Cavett did loads of famous people and lots of them on YouTube.
Parky was good too but he fucked up a few times.
I think he got more grumpy as he aged.

Cavett for me was no 1.
Brando

I always liked the John Lennon one.
