VIDEO: Phoebe Waller-Bridge Shares Her Real-Life ‘Fleabag’ Moment
Phoebe Waller-Bridge recently shared an awkward real-life story that could be a scene from her award-winning show Fleabag. Waller-Bridge, who both produced and starred in the British comedy sitcom had a virtual interview on The Graham Norton Show last week.
Waller-Bridge showed her show’s infamous “wall of penises” prop at her house during the pandemic.
The real-life Fleabag moment happened when she completely forgot that she put her prop in the entryway of her house.
“You know when you just put something down at your house, and then you don’t think about it for ages?” she said. “It just becomes invisible to you, and you forget that you have 12 massive penises at your front door.”
She was only reminded of the “wall of penises” in front of a delivery man.
“I suddenly saw them again, for the first time in ages, and I was like, ‘Oh, god, I’m so sorry!’ And he looked me dead in the eye and just said: ‘It’s art, never apologize for art.'”
Fleabag is a British comedy sitcom produced and written by Waller-Bridge, who also starred as a main character in the show. It first premiered in July 2016 and ended its second and final season in April 2019.
