Rob Delaney thinks Carrie Fisher did ‘Catastrophe’ to be in London

The late Carrie Fisher signed up for hit British comedy “Catastrophe” only so that she could party with her London friends, the show’s creators joked.

Rob Delaney said of Fisher, who played his mom on the first three seasons of the series and died in 2016: “Our theory with Carrie . . . we believe firmly — this isn’t a joke — that she agreed to do the show just because it shot in London.”

He added at the Times Talk event with fellow co-creator, Sharon Horgan, “We don’t think she watched the pilot or read the script . . . She literally learned what the show was well after it had already aired.”

He said they let her “freestyle” on camera, and when asked if it was “exhilarating” having Fisher on set, Delaney mimicked snorting drugs, joking, “Sorry, that was inappropriate!”
