Gordon Ramsay on Leno

I just watched Gordon Ramsay appeasr on Leno (about 30 seconds ago). I thought it was hilarious! He was making fun of Leno, he was funny, not mean (ish), and made what looked like a tasty dish. Also admited that he likes In and Out Burger LOL!

Anyone else see it?

  1. I didn't see it, but I just discovered "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares" on BBC America, and I cannot get enough of it. I have been TIVOing it and it is really well done and hilarious.

    1. re: Steven T

      He maybe a good chef, but he lacks any talent at humor. Just 4 letter words and silly laughs follow. More like a teenager looking for someone to verbally abuse or shock other.
      Throwing food around the stage is not my idea of fun.
      He doesn't show much respect for anything or anybody.

      1. re: nutrition

        My guess is that he was probably told to make a mess since it makes for good tv. It brings to mind the episode of Late Night with Nigella Lawson. She worked so hard to keep and appalled look off her face as Letterman tosses the food around.

    2. I thought he was very funny! I liked the whole segment... The dish he made looked sooo good!

      1. He set a new record for bleeped-out expletives and seemed somewhat nervous to me. Probably because he was trying to do a reined-in version of his Hell's Kitchen approach.

        I've also gotten hooked on Kitchen Nightmares (he's bringing that one to the US in the Fall) and also on Boiling Point. He's a kick so long as you don't have to actually work for him. .I'd last about 5 minutes at best

          It is a simple decision for me to make to not even work for him for a nanosecond. I think he is classless and using a maximum of four letter words is NO claim to fame.

          1. re: nutrition

            I am amazed at the series HELL"S KITCHEN and wonder where it will be in Los Angeles. Would love to give it a try and then get into a big snith over anything that was wrong ! Not my usual style, but I think I am learning what he might respect! lol

        2. I''ve seen Ramsay on Leno's show twice, maybe more. After the first time, it's really hard to tell which is a repeat, because the schtick is the same.
          And that's sad.
          Leno likes food.
          Ramsay makes good food.
          Together they make comedy and food gets short shrift.

          1. Hey guys, did you see the clip of Little Gordon on Leno last night? Found it on youtube, its hilarious!


            I think Big Gordon rocks too! :)

                OMG, the Little Gordon 1 and 2 videos are GREAT! I want MORE!


                Looks like another one's in the work for "school dinner". These are perfect! Wonder what Big Gordon thinks? Probably loves 'em! LOL
