Drama Desk Awards

Conleth Hill, who played Ivan in the Seafarer, was just nominated for a Drama Desk award for best featured actor in a play. I have no idea what these are, or what a featured actor is, as opposed to the regular kind, but no matter. This was the only nomination for this play, which is crazy.

Anyway. Can't find him online anywhere, except in this series, The Life and Times of Vivienne Vyle, starring Jennifer Saunders. He plays the extremely effete husband of a toxic talk show host. It's dark and strangely funny. I've now watched a bunch of clips of this show, which is not available on Netflix, and I think he's doing a parody of the perfect celebrity wife. Here's a tiny clip that doesn't do it justice, but it's one of the few clips that doesn't drop the f bomb.

Just found your clip, a year later! The perfect comic couple. Jennifer Saunders and Conleth Hill.
