Hilarious!

As a "Clue" fan of many years of course I was familiar with these two reprobate characters, but wasn't prepared for the laugh out loud humour of it. Very funny and slightly rude at times, it was just a joy to listen to. Highly recommended for insomniacs. Top marks to Alison Steadman for her Mrs Naughtie accent and the fact that she sometimes has to play 2 characters at once. Whether you are climbing Ben Affleck or wandering through Glen Close, I am sure you will enjoy this Audio.

smut,smutty,smut smut

hamish and dougal are the audio version of a viz magazine. you could play this to a small child (or an American) without any embarrassment but play it to a grown up( nearly) audience and the single,double and even triple engenders lead to hysterical laughter. the writers build in a smutty comment, use it again and even a third time and it gets funnier. Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden are the most underrated comedians in the UK. This is an example of why they're still here 40years on.

GOOD BRITISH NAUGHTY FUN !

Good old naughty dirty clean fun from the wee two from the fab radio show “Sorry I haven’t a Clue”. Definitely be adding the other Amish & Dougall’s to my collection. There’s nothing like a good old British laugh to keep the spirits up!

Hidden Gems

I've said it before so I'll say it again, these sketches have to be some of the funniest I have had the pleasure to listen to. Its innuendo all the way without a swear word in site. So funny

nothing like the radio show

Is there anything you would change about this book?

If you love the radio show with Humph on I haven't a clue, this is going to be a disappointment. These are long sketches that are not funny rather than short set pieces.

What didn’t you like about Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden ’s performance?

Boring and nothing like the radio show.

Did I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue inspire you to do anything?

This is not the show, but much longer unfunny sketches.

Any additional comments?

Returned, could not get past sketch two.

Excellent comedy. Double-entendres abound.

Very very funny. If you like word play & absurdity you'll like this. Warning: Non-Brits' may not understand the humour.
