Last night he was searching for blue whales on BBC2 and on stage at the Criterion talking about his life in aid of the Leukaemia Research Fund. If the polymath was in serious mode on television, in W1 he was effortlessly amusing, suggesting at one point that his quiz show QI is on the Dave channel so much they should rename the channel Steve. The only quibble was the whiff of deja vu for Fry buffs, as the champion Twitterer trotted out familiar tales of his Mittel- European roots, teenage imprisonment, depression and his brilliantly bombastic Blackadder performances. However, each anecdote was crisply told and it was entertaining to hear that his comedy career was unplanned: he expected to become an academic and grow tweed. Culture vultures were delighted to discover that he is writing the libretto for an opera based on EM Forsters story The Life To Come. And QI fans could barely contain themselves on hearing that there is talk of three nights at the Royal Albert Hall in November next year. The tweed-growing worlds loss remains comedys gain.
