I'm sorry... but this is fantastic.

AdvantagesSide-splittingly funny

DisadvantagesMay irritate those who don't appreciate in-jokes / double entendre

"...if the rest of the week is such, my week. Ditto month. While this may say something abuot the interest level of my life, I believe it may have something owed to the sublime quality humour of the show. Clue is currently aired on Radio 4 on Mondays at 6.30, with a repeat the following sunday, at 12.30pm. It is on rotation with other comedy shows such as Just a Minute. Archive repeats to be found on BBC7, at irregular times. History The show was ..." Read review

The Samantha and Colin Sell Fan Club

AdvantagesIt's just so funny

DisadvantagesThe seasons are very short

"...Sandi Toksvig, Mike Harding and Stephen Fry. I am sure that many people would feel that Willy Rushton was insurpassable, but these other people do have a good try. 'Humph', as he is known to his friends, is ably 'assisted' by two people. Firstly there is a man who is subject to continual criticism and abuse. Colin Sell plays the piano and does it fine, but it adds to the comedic atmosphere that his piano playing is continually derided. The other ..." Read review

Being Given Silly Things To Do

AdvantagesRadio is the perfect medium for innuendo

DisadvantagesR4 has an image problem

"...she has to leave early e.g “what with it being Boat Race Day, she has a photo call down at the Tideway, where she can be seen kissing the Cox of the winning crew”. Just the kind of wit and above all, smut, that you can get away with on radio. Marvellous! Not wishing to leave the regions out, the show is frequently on the road, as part of the BBC’s policy of “debunking” regional stereotypes - once when coming from York , they disbanded Mornington ..."

Excellent

AdvantagesVery funny

DisadvantagesBarry Cryer

"I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue has been running for years on Radio Four and is normally worth listening to. Humphrey Littleton, who is also a famous jazz trumpeter, presents it. Fortunately he never gets his trumpet out but does entertain with such lines. I like his dry humour and antipathy towards the players of the game whose scripted gags are sometime a bit crap. The poor jokes don’t seem to matter too much though and there is always the intellectual ..." Read review

The anitidote to Panel Games

AdvantagesBrilliant Humor, fascinating rounds

DisadvantagesNone that I can think of

"I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue has brightened up many a dull evening for me. It is wonderfully irreverant and has just the right hint of cheek without going over the top. The rounds are brilliant - singing one song to the tune of another, the round where the record fades out but the panelists have to keep up with the song, sound charades and of course, the wonderful Mornington Crescent (a round that still baffles several of my friends, despite the ..."

Mornington Crescent, so memorable

AdvantagesFunny isn't the word!!!

DisadvantagesNone!

"To this very day, I still am perplexed on how to play Mornington Crescent! If anyone knows if there is a website about it, or literature on how to play it, contact me ASAP! This is the only programme on the radio that never fails to make me laugh. The panelists, the games, the whole lot is worth spending ½ hour once a week listening to. Humphrey Littleton makes an excellent host, and never fails to have even the panel howling at times. My personal ..." Read review

When Samantha met Sven.

AdvantagesWitty, brilliant, just a little bit rude

DisadvantagesYou need to get used to it

"I'm amazed that nobody's reviewed this excellent programme yet - but perhaps it's one of those programmes you either love or hate and no amount of recommendation will convert the haters. But try it, as soon as it comes back - it'll grow on you. Give it a couple of tries, in fact, so that you start to get the feeling for some of the in-jokes. For those who haven't heard it at all, it's a motley collection of "activities", some musical, undertaken by ..." Read review

I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue - Radio 4

AdvantagesMany and Varied

DisadvantagesAre you kidding??

"For anyone who hasn't listened to Clue I have no hesitation in recommending it highly. Comedy and Radio 4 were not two words I would have put together until a couple of years ago when I started listening to BBC7 and found that shows were funny and then sought them out to hear when 'new'. The show is subtitled as the Antidote to Panel Games despite having two panels of guests. Regulars are Humphrey Lyttelton (Chairman) and panelists Tim Brooke-Taylor, ..." Read review

Attending the recording of ISIHAC

AdvantagesSuperb free entertainment.

DisadvantagesSad if they never come near us again!

"...went to queue for tickets. Lots of people were there and they were all anxious to receive the four free tickets that were provided. It was so entertaining to hear the whole two programmes that were being recorded at the one sitting. Humphrey Littleton fluffed a few lines and there was some adjustment needed at the end but he is so dry and witty and amusing that even this part of the process was fairly funny. Willy Rushton was alive at that ..." Read review
