Dennis Pennis was without doubt, one of the funniest character creations of all time. Ranking alongside such greats as Alan Partridge
, and Ali-G
, while he was on the 11 o'clock show
are the animals with the biggest dicks in the world, and also a country only 200 miles away from England
But anyways, the above node is spot on, I just wanted to add my 2 favourite Pennis celebrity run in's.
The first involves Jeremy Irons. A great British actor, and one of the rare breed to become relatively successful in Hollywood, ermm off the top of my head, playing the bad guy in Die Hard III.
Jeremy is coming to what I'd guess was a film premiere or some other celebrity bash. He has a glamourous lady on his arm, camera flashes are going off left right and centre, fans are screaming. Jeremy is smiling and waving to the gathered crowd, unaware of what is about to hit him. Dennis simply walks straight up to him and says....
DP: Jeremy can you do me a huge favour.
DP: Can you get out of my way please.
Dennis pushes past him, leaving Jeremy trying to figure out what just happened.
Another favourite of mine is Pennis's relationship with Kevin Costner. I think Pennis must have pissed of Costner on several occasions. The clip I saw was of Costner visiting Venice. As soon as he catches sight of Pennis he's shouting at his minders not to let the guy near him. All the time Dennis is shouting one liners at Costner trying to get a reaction.
Costner then gets into a Gondola and proceeds along a canal, but still can't get away from Dennis who is running along the banks still firing off witty questions and put downs. Costner then opens up, shouting "come on man, can't you walk on water you fucking cocksucker!" Funniest thing ever, trust me.
