Video Interview: The Grinch chats at Universal Orlando about Christmas Carols, Holiday Celebrations, and even Grumpy Cat

He’s a mean one. He’s the Grinch. A nasty, wasty skunk. But he’s also incredibly hilarious, entertaining Universal Orlando guests throughout the Christmas season as the star of Grinchmas at Islands of Adventure.

While there on its opening day a couple weekends ago, I was once again offered a chance to chat one-on-one with the Grinch. He’s actually quite a nice guy when he’s not overtly praising himself – which is always. If he had just one word to describe himself, it would most certainly be “awesome,” a descriptor he ensures to emphasize to everyone who talks to him.

But I wanted to know more about the Grinch personally, so I asked him about how his holiday season has been going and what his favorite parts have been. And, just for fun, I figured I’d get his thoughts on a few similarly grumpy celebrities.

    I can’t believe that you chat with the Grinch, Ricky. That’s really cool of you.

  2. Alex Johnston

    I too enjoy these segments, the guy playing the grinch does a terrific er I mean terrible 🙂 job.

  3. I am so glad that the Grinch didn’t mellow after his illustrious career on the big screen!
    I must admit to being outrageously jealous that you managed to grab an interview with our Green Grumpy Grinch!

  4. The Grinch once stole my backpack and threw it in the bin. He is so unpredictable. Ha!
