Earlier this year Uria had a chance to be on a virtual call with Peter Drury where he had engagement with his idol who made a light moment of his acting skills.
“I’m over here in Doha to witness the World Cup draw… Listen, I love what you do. I hope you’re laughing with me not at me, I must say I’m certainly laughing with you, it’s terrifically funny, it’s superb!” Drury stated.
Drury went on to add that it was his wish to ever meet the comedian one on one.
“Football shouldn’t be taken too seriously, just seriously enough and with all the passion that you have shown for it. I do love your work and I do hope one day we’ll get to meet each other face-to-face and you can teach me how to commentate,” Drury added.
