Stephen Fry hates dancing

2 minutes

Stephen Fry loathes dancing. To understand better, see it performed – in dance

Stephen Fry Hates Dancing turns a monologue on the myriad ways in which the British comedian and actor hates rhythmic human movement into a strange celebration of the art through a spirited interpretive-dance reenactment/rebuttal.

Director: Jo Roy
