6 Reasons Why "The Graham Norton Show" Is The Best Chat Show

We all enjoy the occasional chat show binge-watch. From Conan, Kimmel, Corden, Fallon, there are many big names in the business that never fail to provide the world with light entertainment and smooth conversation with our favorite celebrities. However, I think there is one name in the business that outshines them all. And that would be Graham Norton. And trust me, he is the best for many reasons.

He gives stars from all over the world the opportunity to be together.

I can watch my favorite English comedian sit next to my favorite American actor. And what’s better? They actually get to interact and chat. This creates an unbeatable dynamic, and fascinates me, as it is something we rarely get to see in other talk shows.

The setup of the show allows for guests to feel comfortable

I mean, it is literally just one big couch. The atmosphere provided really invites closeness with the guests, and makes for great commentary.

His lighthearted demeanor.

I mean, what’s not to love. The laughs are genuine, the charm is real, and Graham invites the world to laugh along as he gets stories out of his guests that will have you smiling for hours.

The genuine enjoyment of the guests

Every time I find myself watching the Graham Norton show, I genuinely get the feeling that the guests are having a good time. Every laugh and smile they crack during their press tour seem to culminate into one big moment on the Graham Norton couch. And this just makes the show so much more enjoyable.

There are some perks of this show being filmed in the UK, and these include the drinking laws. The guests get to loosen up with a glass of wine (and even stronger drinks), making the environment seem more casual.

The big red chair.

We cannot forget about this. The beautiful excuse to watch audience members act as though they were guests on the show themselves, this fun anecdote telling part of the show marks the end of each broadcast and provides for hilarious results.
