    Louis handled Lawrence’s interrupting well.
    Edit: Louis’ children conditioned him for this interview

    This was unfortunately more of a struggle to watch than it ever should be! Lawrence, god, please, stop interrupting and cracking out one liners that aren’t funny. Louis Theroux is bloody gold and it was difficult to watch his wonderful flow and thoughts being halted. Shush man.
    Congrats Brian for getting on Louis, great accomplishment 👏 Louis was fabulous 🥰

      I have to agree, talking over people to get a point across is fucking obnoxious. It's not about you, it's about the guest.

      What do you expect? It's a TheXvid interview. Lawrenece has fuck all training and he doesn't obstruct any bodies thoughts. Give him a chance.

    Really satisfying to visit the comment section and see everyone telling Lawrence to stop talking so much. Constant unfunny one liners and Louis handled them by not acknowledging them in the slightest.

    I've listened to this a few times now, as I do with most podcasts, and it's a great podcast. Brian has really really made himself into an absolute podcasting beast, very good questioning, and attempted to make the whole thing flow well. Lawrence, on the other hand, really needs to work on his timing and read the situation a bit better, instead of just almost losing control and feeling like he has to say something, especially when the guest is speaking and mid-conversation. At times, it felt almost cringy with Louis trying to get things back on track after Lawrence attempted to make a joke, which I don't think any of them hit well.

  • David Flack

    I'm sad to say that I couldn't watch until the end, the interview was great and Louis was interesting and insightful as always. Lawrence honestly ruined this, he is the single reason I couldn't watch until the end. This screaming for attention with his jokes and constant interrupting was insufferable. This isn't just bad interviewer etiquette it's damn rude!. People are watching because they are interested in hearing what the person you are interviewing has to say, the spotlight should be on them so stop trying to jump in whenever they try to say anything whatsoever. I really hope that things change in future interviews. True Geordie, you did absolutely amazing man 👏, you clearly are a very talented and warm interviewer so thank you, genuinely. Take care and have an awesome night.

      Louis made jokes back to him several times so it wasn't this pathetic vie for attention that you are making it out to be. You wanted a stuck up "Inside the Actors Studio" type interview and you didn't get it so you are taking it out on someone who is just doing his job the way Geordie hired him to do it. There are plenty of interviews with Louis that are exactly what you are looking for but this one isn't it and its probably not for you. Don't go to an ice cream shop and expect prime rib.

      I’ve noticed that the more “Alpha” “Masculine” “hard” the guest is, the less Lawrence is inclined to interrupt. The Tyson Fury interview you’d be forgiven for thinking he wasn’t in the room

  • Alice Thompson
    Alice Thompson 3 months ago +80

    Every time Lawrence says something inappropriate or short sited and Louis gently corrects it so we can watch it without feeling awful about listening to it. Thank you, Louis! People are saying forgiving things about Lawrence in the comments as if to excuse him, I wonder if he's normally more evolved but was just nervous cause it was Louis Theroux?! Bless him.

    Fair play to Brian for for being a loyal friend and sticking with Lawrence. He’s absolutely insufferable. The more intelligent the guest the worse he gets. Has to cut in when the guest is halfway through there points. He’s like a puppy wanting all the attention. You can tell Louis can see through him.

    • liam kenny
      liam kenny 3 months ago +1

      @Happy Face it’s not the fact I don’t think he is capable. I think it’s much more of an ego problem. Whilst Louis does engage him and responds, you can see at times he’s taken a back. I am willing to add for me,personally, I have let how much I hated the times when he makes it so weirdly awkward that I am letting it over shadow the good he does for the interview.

    • Happy Face
      Happy Face 3 months ago +6

      @liam kenny I’m not so sure, I agree with Lewis on this…. He made some pretty badly timed jokes, particularly in the first 1/3, but he had a lot to add, more than Brian imo, although Brian did bring some excellent questions and is an excellent interviewer in general, Lawrence really did a lot for this, you just have to look past some awkward moments. If you watch the mood, Louis does also engage with him a lot, and in terms of actual conversation and discussion, although not super common, I’d say the most engaged instances are between Lawrence and Louis, not with Brian. Overall I think Lawrence needs to hone his skill a lot more than Brian does, but to say he doesn’t have it is vastly missing talent

    • liam kenny
      liam kenny 3 months ago +6

      @Lewis Beattie don’t agree with that at all. He disrupts as much as he drives. His inherent need to seem the most intelligent and funny in the room details the podcast multiple times. The fact I’m far from the only one making this point makes it my point.

    • Lewis Beattie
      Lewis Beattie 3 months ago +16

      Lawrence is impatient and interupts a lot, but he drived a lot of the conversation on this one. Feel this is a bit disrespectful. He knew way more about Louis' work on this one and asked a lot of very valuable questions. He was clearly nervous here, it's very apparent Lawrence admires Louis.

  • Alex Lowe

    Louis understands people too well hence his sense of detachment. Which is what makes him so watchable because he understands the complexity of human nature. He is one of the best documentary filmmakers out there.

  • Jackson Vega

    This is a rather good interview, i see a lot of comments on Louis being interrupted too often but I kinda think that people forget that that’s what normal conversations are n that the natural feeling of the conversation is what makes it so compelling, especially as Louis is such a great conversationalist

  • BaileyBoy

    Lawrence is like that kid in school that adds random chat either trying to fit in or be funny and just ends up being annoying and awkward. He’s rid off the back of Geordie for time now

    Great podcast.
    I do like Loz, his contributions are often very insightful and generally brings the questions to a deeper meaning and feel than Brian's line of questioning. However he needs to work on his timing. Being a co-host is definitely a skill. His interruptions when Louis was mid flow of a story were very jarring.

    • Fallon Corinne

    Smooth work. Cheers for this.

    Absolutely loved this interview! I became aware of Louis Theroux with My Scientology Movie & was instantly a fan of his work.
    Years later I would see him live at The State Theater(Sydney, Australia) By this point I had seen alot of his documentaries including his one on Autism in America which has since become one of my favourites of his work. Been mildly austic myself I felt extremely sorry for these kids & their parents & Loui captures these stressful yet beautiful moments of these parents doing there best for their children despite the challenges they face.
    He is an amazing guy & seeing him live talk about his life was both intriguing & interesting.

    An hour in and Louis hasn’t so much as chuckled at a single Loz wise-crack attempt. Tough to watch.

    Great Interview and as a want to be documentary photographer i totally get the part around 70 minutes, covering subject's that other people dont get.
    It is a kind of part of the territory and if done in the right way when you get the footage and use it to open people's eyes to whats going on it is quite rewarding
    especially on this guys level
    thanks again

    What a great podcast this was. It's strange, considering that I don't know him personally, how much I really like Louis.
    As an MMA fan I've listened to you on various other shows but never actually listened to an episode of your own. You've gained a new subscriber and I can't wait to listen to some of your previous episodes now 👍

    Brian is becoming such a good interviewer, just needs to dial down the Joe Rogan. Loz seemed more interested in being the funniest man in the room, not at his best. Loz aside still a great podcast, Louis so open and honest.

    Brian was phenomenal here mind, I'd imagine a normal interview follows a usual structure, Louis however has lived such a fascinating life in the presence of others that his conversation can include several stories tied into one.
    Brian seemingly had to re-word and even potentially make up new but also on track questions on the fly, fantastic job.

    get him back on, we need to hear more and hear about joe exotic in depth. maybe get his opinions on ufo's and mythical creatures such as big foot etc to see where he stands. best podcast imo and louis is great 👍🏻👍🏻

    Louis has to be one of my all time favourite TV celebs/interviewer/researcher.. Just a fantastic guy full stop. Never been able to get enough louis TV. If he had a TheXvid channel would be amazing.. As I'm sure ur aware I'm not the hugest fan of Geordie podcast. But. I can't deny they get good things from the guests (tho the little chap is annoying and chirps in with what he thinks are funny interjections way too often cutting the flow sometimes. ) but yes Louis great interview. He looks like he enjoyed it.. What more can u ask for... Huge respect to all. And louis... We need you on TheXvid.

    Louis is one of my all time favourite story makers. Absolute legend, and it's nice to see people from outside the UK loving him too. It's so awsome (I am not being judgmental, it just is slightly humerous) thinking about Louis kicking back smoking some ganj and putting on some Ice Cube or something. What a man.

    Awesome to see you studied all of his documentaries. I’m a big fan of Louis and liked your interview style, will have to listen to more of your podcasts. One thing I thought would of added to the podcast was talking more about Scientology but I guess you had limited time

    Love Louis, used to watch bbc 2 comedy on Friday evenings and scan the tv around until late and stumbled across him when he first started weird weekends in the 90s, I was a little young to fully get it everything going on but loved him and watched everything he released!
    Don’t watch tv nowadays so his podcast slipped me by, defo going to make a start with them now!
    Good job lads

    I've seen every documentary Louis ever made, listened to all his podcasts and have read both his books. Will be buying his most recent one as well. Massive fan of all his work. This was a pleasant surprise. You guys did a phenomenal job of interviewing him and not shying away from asking some of the tougher questions and even at times, taking the piss. Wish the interview didn't have to end when it did!
