Dara O'Briain



For this week's Skeptical Sunday video: some NSFW language, but man oh man is it funny. I often think the funny is the best way to combat the nuttiness. Have a great week!

Thanks for that. I needed the laugh - with a fair amount of truth mixed in. My favorite kind of laugh.

Michael and I have watched his stuff on Youtube. Boy, he is hilarious.

Dara would make Jefferson very proud.

I love this guy, and love this video, but just thought I'd point out that his name is actually Dara O'Briain. I love him on QI and Mock the Week!

ahundredvisions,

Thanks and updated--sorry for the typo.

Hey, no worries. I didn't want to be annoyingly pedantic, just thought you'd like to know. :)

Jim said...

Not pedantic! I'm a bad typist and am surprised I don't get more comments like yours. I welcome any well-meaning criticism or suggestions and will fix anything I can.

Thanks!

It took me a while to finally watch this but it was worth it! My husband walked by as I was watching and was quickly hooked. Thanks for sharing.
