Hugh Laurie, Stephen Colbert read 'acceptable rude words' - video

By
Hugh Laurie and Stephen Colbert highlighted words that can be uttered on basic cable last night (August 5).

The House actor appeared as a guest on Comedy Central's Colbert Report, before being invited by the host to recite a list of acceptable vulgar terms including "bang, banging, bitches" and "balls".



The skit was a response to the main TV networks asking for a change to the decency rules that stop them using particular words, while cable is not under such strict restraints.

Laurie was introduced by Colbert as "award-winning British person and recovering network star Sir Hugh Laurie".

The actor recently revealed his hopes of launching a revue-type show with former comedy partner Stephen Fry.
