17 golden Louis Theroux quotes to use in your everyday life

Louis Theroux is a national treasure - and we can all thank the TV gods for putting him back on our screens again this autumn.

His hard-hitting documentary about heroin abuse in the US was so affecting that it had fans calling for him to be knighted, and was a continuation of Louis’ transition towards much more serious documentaries, very different from the bizarre and whimsical topics he used to explore in his earlier days of film-making.

While Louis is still fascinating when exploring the likes of drug use and alcoholism, I do sometimes miss his turns as an amateur gangsta rapper and his forays into the world of porn - not least because they provided us with some excellent quotes, that are even funnier when taken out of context.

There’s a Louis quote for every occasion - you just have to use it right…
