Latitude Festival kicked off in classic delightfully cultured style with an hilarious, intimate question and answer session featuring Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon and director Richard Curtis.
Richard Curtis was speaking to Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan about their work on the BBC comedy, ‘The Trip’. And the Q&A was a continuation of the self-depreciating banter of the acclaimed series; Brydon playing on his affable reputation, while Coogan teased as the more successful part of their relationship.
The session took in the making of ‘The Trip’, the actors’ previous film with Michael Winterbottom, ‘Cock and Bull Story’, ‘Alan Partridge’ and ‘Gavin & Stacey’. With Curtis introducing clips from ‘The Trip’, Brydon and Coogan attempted to outdo each other with impressions of Roger Moore and Christopher Lee in ‘The Man With The Golden Gun’. Before Brydon delivered a hilarious, minimal take on Coogan, his partner said dryly, “Rob does one of me. I’ve never bothered to learn to do him.”
