HUGH LAURIE: Hollywood Star!

Tuesday, 25 October 2016

Well, I was always painfully aware of what a truly extraordinary story I was telling here... but never moreso than on this spectacular day, as I sit on the coast of the opposite shining sea of the United Stated of America and watch the great and the good of Hollywood prostrated at Hugh Laurie's Union Jack socks, as his well-deserved star on the Hollywood Boulevard (fittingly just outside the British Pub, The Pig 'N' Whistle) is unveiled.

Eyes wet from Stephen's tribute, there's little I can do for now but share some hot screengrabs, and assure you that today has given Soupy Twists a stronger shape, a more exciting denouement, and hopefully a larger audience, than I could ever have dreamed.

In a couple of hours I will be paying my own tribute by playing 'The Sophisticated Song' on ukulele in a parking lot on St. Simon's Island, Georgia. So until further authorial twists and turns come about, what can I say but:

"Smell? Smell? Smell? SMELL???"

Sorry, I mean:

"We took the caravan down to Dorset this year, and pushed it over a cliff."

Sorry, I mean:

SOUPY TWISTS!
