Does Tony Know About This?  
That was the first thing I thought of when I read this:

“House” star Hugh Laurie is being given an exclusive “Burger King Gold Card” after mentioning the celebrity perk in an interview and sending the blogosphere into a tizzy. The card, which grants the bearer an lifetime’s supply of free burgers, has only been given to 11 other individuals, including Jay Leno.

Turns out he might not, but Robert Downey Jr. does, being a recipient of a card himself.

Bit of Fry & Laurie  
Good news! A Bit of Fry & Laurie is now out on DVD!

A Bit of Fry & Laurie: The Complete Collection ... Every Bit, a four-disc set with all four seasons of the dry British comedy-sketch show with Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, tacks on a welcome bonus: The Cambridge University Footlights Revue. This is the hour-long 1982 BBC film of The Cellar Tapes, the 1980-81 show created when Laurie was president and Emma Thompson vice-president of the university's Footlights troupe. (Other alumni: John Cleese, Eric Idle.) The show was the hit of the 1981 Edinburgh Festival and launched the careers of Laurie, Fry and Thompson, who in one skit sends up the period dramas for which she would later win acclaim.

Oh yes, this is so going on my Wish List! I've never seen all of the episodes, just scattered smatterings that I've caught on PBS. But what I have seen, I've loved. Hey, it's Hugh and Stephen -- what's not to love? [g]
