Has Hitchens tried to imitate (or play) Burton?

In the 1970s Charles Collingwood, CBS 60 minutes, interviewed Ms Taylor, recently gone, and Mr Burton (not recently gone, but long gone). While listening to Mr Burton in said interview, it reminded me of someone and I thought: where have I heard some of the inflections, modisms and cracker joking of Mr Burton, in a lesser, yet familiar form (like playing the character)? The answer: Hitchens in some public “debates”. The guy has tried to be Burton all his life?. (without the looks, the wit and of, course without Ms Taylor, but with the boozing, no objections).
