This is from much earlier this year, but I stumbled upon it this morning, and because clips from Graham Norton’s British talk show often do not get the appropriate recognition they deserve stateside, I thought it’d be worth sharing. In it, Hugh Jackman describes the worst 45 minutes of his life, back when he was starting out as a presenter. He was asked to host the presentation of the New Year’s Eve fireworks, a 45-minute event for which he had no preparation.

What happened next …? I’ll let Hugh, that poor bastard, explain it.

Hugh Jackman (who apparently has not learned from his mistake) will host Christmas In Washington with President Obama, which will air on TNT this Friday night.
