Graham Norton's Big Red Chair

Graham Norton's Big Red Chair 
6th January 2017

 

Graham Norton goes behind the scenes of TV’s most famous comfy chair to meet the people who have entertained the nation with their stories. Sometimes.

 

Graham Norton tells The Red Chair story. The tale of how this precarious flippable piece of furniture came to be a universally loved feature of his show and has played host to some amazing audience anecdotes. 

 

Each week, Graham's celebrity guests have watched open mouthed as daring audience members have gripped the red chair tightly and told their story, all the while, hoping not to be flipped. 

 

Allowing the best storytellers to walk, Graham has judged over 500 red chair stories.  Many have walked, most have been flipped, and for some it has been life changing. And so, whilst musing the art of telling the perfect red chair story, Graham showcases his all-time favourite stories.
