The Grand Tour

Clarkson: Jeremy Clarkson’s Short Lived Chat Show

When you think Jeremy Clarkson, of course the first thing to come to mind would be Top Gear, and more lately, The Grand Tour. He’s done a few other bits on Robot Wars as well, if you didn’t know, as well as other hosting positions on programmes such as the British show Have I Got News For You. 

What few people remember is Clarkson’s personal chat show, aptly named, ‘Clarkson’. It started in November 1998, but was cancelled in only three years consisting of three series. It did however boast 27 episodes. It consisted of comedic interviews and general funny bits., although it didn’t seem to be overly popular, hence the averagely short life span.

If you want an idea of what this show consisted of, or how sensible it wan’t, have a watch of the video below where Jeremy shows the audience how to properly serve finger food… from a melon… with explosives.

I’m sure you’ve got an idea of what kind of show this was. Personally, I think it’s brilliant, and I’d love to see the modern equivalent of this.

At one point he even put a small plastic version of Wales in a microwave and turned it on. After being scathed by the media, he replied with a Clarkson-esque explanation:

“I put Wales in there because Scotland wouldn’t fit”.

You gotta love ‘im!

Would you like to see Clarkson return to the screen? Obviously not with the BBC, but would Amazon be up for The Grand Tour spin-off? Would it involve the three amigos, or would it just be Clarkson on his lonesome? An interesting idea – maybe something for Amazon to think about!

Now spend an hour of your day watching the best bits from the show. It’s worth it.

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
