Who's at your imaginary dinner party?


Recommended Posts

I saw Morgan Freeman on the Daily Show yesterday.  It reminded me how much I'd like to sit down and have a drink and chat with the guy.  He's brilliant, unassuming, charismatic and funny.  I would love to have the guy over for dinner.

Living or dead?

 

Stephen Fry

David Attenborough

Michael Palin

Bill Murray

Nels Cline

Charlie Brooker

 

If dead is an option, I'll add:

 

Christopher Hitchens

George Harrison

Graham Chapman

Freddie Mercury

 

 

I've left off a few people whose talent I admire, but are known to be assholes.

Emily Dickinson and Jeff Tweedy! I think they'd have a lot to talk about regarding words and poetry. All three of us are/were introverts but I think they would have plenty to say to each other that I could just sit back and listen (I'm generally beyond terrible at impromptu conversation or verbal chit chat). I wonder where they'd want to meet and what would be on the menu?

Something like:-

 

Spike Milligan

Lennon on a good day, otherwise nice George

Garrison Keillor

Alan Bennett

Peter Cook

Barry Cryer

Michael Palin

Kathy Burke

Guy Garvey

Johnny Vegas

Should be a belly laugh or two in that lot, but with some complex personalities for deeper interest
