Who Wants To See Hugh Laurie Rap?

Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie

We all know that Hugh Laurie is very keen on his music, and that he can play jazz and blues along with the best of them. But, as a comedian on a sketch show in the 1980s, he’d have been very remiss in his duties had he neglected to perform at least one skit about rap music, alongside is decidedly unmusical partner Stephen Fry.

Well, here is that rap skit (note: sKit, with a K). I dare you to watch the whole thing without curling into a tiny little ball.
