Cool Videos: Liam Neeson is horrible at improv

11.11.2011

Liam Neeson is good at many things. Acting, chiefly among them. Comedy? Not so much. But that doesn't mean he can't try.

In a recent episode of "Life's Too Short," the BBC comedy series that follows Ricky Gervais and Warwick Davis, Neeson made a cameo as himself. A very unfunny version of himself trying desperately to be funny. And failing miserably.

It should be noted that this series (which doesn't run here in the US yet) is more like "Curb Your Enthusiasm" than anything else and isn't meant to be literal. Which proves the point that perhaps Liam Neeson is pretty good at comedy.

Always refreshing with actors who don't take themselves too seriously

"I've got full blown AIDS"
I feel so bad for laughing. Can't wait for the show to start

This was definitely funny. Neeson is awesome. Anyone know who else appeared in this besides Depp and Neeson in that sort of set-up scene??

It's Neeson's awkwardness that works here along with Warwick Davis looking puzzled.

Between this and Johnny Depp's "nobody makes fun of Tim Allen on my watch and gets away with it" bit, this show can't come to the states fast enough.

Liam Neeson day because there's something online about him today as well as yesterday?

And looks like you'll believe any old crap.

He's so uncomfortable trying to be funny that it's hysterical and painful to watch.
The SCHINDLER'S LIST bit had me rolling!
