WATCH: New ‘AbFab’ Clip: ‘There’s a New Disease Called the Kardashians, Dahling’

With the Absolutely Fabulous 20th Anniversary Special is set to storm American shores on Sunday, January 8 on BBC America, the BBC in the UK has released a brand-new clip of the show.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
