    I've stopped watching QI because of its juvenile "humour", for example in every show it was just a matter of minutes before somebody used the words "bum" or "willy" etc.PS- are Fry and Davies shagging?

    His accents were so spot on you could forgdt he was English for a second. His Irish accent was scarily accurate.

    Wow, I never knew Stephen was so casually bigoted...

      Doing accents or impressions isn’t bigoted
      He’s making the story’s funny and more interesting, something millenials never do for fear of causing offence to some sensitive moron

    Stephen speaking with an American accent is mildly horrifying.

    I always feel like Stephen Fry gets a giddy thrill out of doing a camp accent. Slightly guilty but enjoys it.

      I'm not a horror film fan, but I would go see Stephen's version of a camp horror film.

    MAN Stephen does a good Aussie accent, not overdone or exaggerated at all, extremely believable, and that's coming from a native aussie lol

    I do miss Stephen. A wonderfully jolly chap when presenting, brings an inordinate amount of joy into my life.


    Brilliant video yet again RUINED by that toksvig woman at the end

    "Course you never knew Hitler did you?" That really reminded me of when Grandad said to Del Boy: "You wouldn't remember when I married your grandmother?" haha absolutely amazing

    I don't dislike Sandi as a person or a comic - but i'm fed up with her on QI - she's WAY too patronising. We need Stephen Back.

    • David Oakes

      @Horacio Toad Sandi is alright - but she does the " What have I done to deserve this? " quip far too much and looking at the audience and shrugging thing way too often and going " so...um.... _no_ ?? " thing far too often. She berates all the guys for making the slightest blokey joke - but won't miss any opportunity to make a lesbian joke.

    Stephen's grandfather's pronunciation of Pythagoras is actually much closer to the Greek pronunciation of Πυθαγόρας than the way a typical English-speaker says it...

    • Baz Cuda
      Baz Cuda Month ago

      I fully agree - although I've studied Latin not Greek. The standard English way of pronouncing the TH in Pythagorus, as in "thanks", is completely wrong - it should just be a hard T sound. In fact, I'll stick my neck out and say that English is the only European language where the TH combination has sounds other than a hard T - cf France's "Thierry Henry", or Germany's "Thal" or "thaler". And of course our Latin "Y" came from Greek anyway, and in Greek, names should be pronounced like the "u" in French "vu" and "tu", and German "über". So, rather than the "Py" being pronounced as "pie" it's more like "poo" - sort of. I don't know how to say the Greek version of his name that you've quoted, but certainly the Romans would have pronounced such a word as something like Poota-gOrus or Poo-tAgorus. Stephen needs to give his grandfather more credit :P
      All fascinating stuff - well, I find it fascinating, anyway :D
      Where would the stress be in the Greek ? On the second or third syllable ?

    I'm now convinced that he's an Australian putting on a British accent.

  • Elton Barnes

    I may be incorrect, but the first to break the sound barrier, was the whip . When it cracks it surpasses the sound barrier. I believe the whip has been around since Egyptian times long befor the cannon ball

  • Marachime

    I adore Sandi's object work at the end. The cup is especially good. She gives it weight and the implication that she's drinking it when i'm sure it's empty and light. :) makes me happy.

    @3:42 that answer is wrong. The right answer is the whip.

  • Travis Rolison

    I would think the bullwhip was the first thing that breaks the sound barrier. The whip crack sound is the end piece breaking the sound barrier

    The cannon ball was not the first invention to break the sound barrier Mr Fry. It was in fact the supersonic whip. The familiar crack sound of the whip is created when the tip moves faster than the speed of sound creating a sonic boom and is believed to have been in use for approximately 3000 years. 🥣

      @hughjarrse My apologies. I assumed Fry had agreed with Alan but upon reviewing the video It's apparent the question was never answered. Further research revealed the original clip with the question answered therein.


    • hughjarrse

  • You know more than me, but,

    It has for the longest time seemed that no-one but an aussie can do an Australian accent.
    Stephen just proved that wrong.

  • docOld55

    As an Aussie, I can only say that his Australian accent is abso-fucking-lutely perfect.

    As an Australian, his aussie accent is by far the best I've ever heard a non-Australian speak. Sounds so natural.
