Ya, I’ve had this conversation a couple times about Martin and his accent, his accent’s accent, his accent’s ferocity, or lack there of, here or one of the other food boards (who knows anymore).
Someone was saying he doesn’t have an accent at all and it’s all fake, I was saying how I’ve heard him walking in Chinatown and he sounded like he did on PBS more or less (“but that’s cause he’s playing the role there too!”) to me talking about how he spoke at the graduation (“there too!”) to me saying I’ve talked to him in person with just me, him, and my gf and he sounded the same just not as loud, etc, etc.
All those were dismissed and then I brought up Emeril and how I’ve also met him at his restaurant and elsewhere and somehow he also wasn’t exactly the same as he was on TV (he never said “bam!” once) but that was also dismissed for some reason or other…
Every TV person I’ve ever met in real life wasn’t like they are when on TV*. For whatever reason people on the food boards love to bring up Martin though.
*except Stephen A. That fool is ‘on’ 24/7. He’s insane lol. I don’t know what he eats but if I ever need to swim across the Pacific, I’m asking for that for breakfast.
