The award winning comedian has his own TV show, and became famous thanks to his hilarious Lily Savage drag queen character.
Apparently, the fools at Miami airport thought his accent was a tad funny, and accused him of being an illegal Cuban alien.
It took officials two hours to verify his identity and confirm that he is indeed, a British comedian, and not a Cuban immigrant.
I’m not entirely sure why they couldn’t just take a close look at him, and come to the conclusion that he doesn’t even look Cuban. But that would obviously prevent Miami airport from keeping its title as one of the worst International airports in the country.
With so many tourists visiting the United States entering through Miami, the airport may want to review its policies, and ask their immigration officials to re-read the manual on how to spot an illegal immigrant. The first step is to just read the damn passport.
Mr. O’Grady spoke about the incident on his radio show, and said “I’ve been to hell, folks – it’s called Miami airport.”.
