BROGUE THERE.>>Stephen: CAN YOU TEACH ME
TO DO A REAL IRISH ACCENT?>>I COULD TRY. I COULD CERTAINLY TRY.>>Stephen: I COULD TRY.>>IT COULD BE A CHALLENGE.>>Stephen: IT COULD BE A
CHALLENGE.>>WE’LL GIVE IT A GP G. BUT IT’S YOUR SHOW. YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT.>>Stephen: GIVE ME A WORD.>>DON’T TRY– STOP.>>Stephen: WHATEVER YOU’RE
DOING NOW, STEPHEN.>>WHATEVER THAT IS, IT’S WRONG. SO WE’RE GOING TO DO THE RIGHT
THING. THE FIRST THING YOU NEED TO
REMEMBER, WHEN A LOT OF PEOPLE TRY TO DO AN IRISH ACCENT THEY
ALWAYS SORT OF GO UP HERE LIKE THAT– THEY KIND OF– YES THEY
DON’T USE WORDS.>>Stephen: NO, THEY DON’T.>>THERE’S NO WORDS, NO COHERENT
WORDS.>>Stephen: OR THEY GO REALLY

ON THE FIRST TRY?>>HARD HARDLY EVER.>>Stephen: WHAT’S THE WORST
PRONUNCIATION OF YOUR NAME YOU EVER HEARD. LET ME GET IT OUT HERE FIRST SO
PEOPLE CAN SEE IT. THAT’S HOW YOUR NAME IS SPELLED.>>DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE. IT’S A RIDICULOUS NAME.>>Stephen: WHAT’S THE WORST
PRONUNCATION.>>SAUER-ES-‘S, SUAREZ.>>Stephen: YOU DO LOOK A
LITTLE BIT LIKE A SUAREZ.>>I DO. PRETTY EXOTIC YOU.>>Stephen: HAVE A VERY, VERY
THICK MEXICAN ACCENT.>>AND I’VE GOT THE SKIN TONE TO
GO WITH IT.>>Stephen: YOU CAN HELP ME
OUT WITH SOMETHING, THOUGH? THERE ARE SO MANY IRISH NAMES
THAT ARE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE FOR PEOPLE NOT FROM IRELAND TO
