Summary

Another bumper collection of classic fun and games from one of BBC Radio 4's best-loved and most enduring comedy panel games. The inimitable Humphrey Lyttelton is in the chair for these 25 hilarious editions (including the very first episode from 1972) plus two volumes of vintage 'Live' recordings (ad libs, retakes, warm-ups and all), a 35th anniversary special edition, and I'm Sorry I Haven't a Desert Island, in which famous fans Judi Dench, Jim Broadbent and Germaine Greer choose their favourite 'Clue' moments.

Humph presides over regular players Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer, Graeme Garden and Willie Rushton plus guests including Jeremy Hardy, Ross Noble, Andy Hamilton, Rob Brydon, Stephen Fry, Jack Dee, Sandi Toksvig, Tony Hawks, Linda Smith, David Mitchell, Marcus Brigstocke and Victoria Wood. First published as I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue Volumes 10 to 15, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue 'Live' Volumes 1 & 2, and I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue Anniversary Special, this feast of unrestrained revelry and inspired ad libs is the authentic, award-winning antidote to panel games. Accept no substitutes!

The King of Panel Shows

As a (fairly) recent convert to Radio 4's comedy offerings the greatest joy has been discovering for the first time the King of panel games - I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. After endlessly listening to the first treasury collection earlier this year the wait for this second volume has been unbearable at times! I do not know of any other panel show that provides as many laughs per show as this one.

Humph may have been the master chairman but Jack Dee has been a more than able successor to his seat mixing the same biting wit Humph has with his deadpan delivery. I've had the pleasure of seeing the show live in the past 12 months - once in Halifax for a recording and once at the Lowry for the touring show and have not laughed as much.

This collection has been a great listen over the past couple of weeks since its release. A lot of the shows I have never heard before and the last couple of hours featuring the 30th anniversary recording, Clue Desert Island and the very first recording of the show was probably the highlight. Whether you are a Audible customer or not this collection is great value (better if a Audible member though!).

This and the first Treasury release are must buys.

The BBC haven't a clue...

This is a chance to experience this once-great show during it's height (mostly) the 1990s, and to contrast it with today's completely sanitized version. In those days, there was a genuine air of spontaneity about each show, as each panelist wrote their own material and kept it to themselves until the show started. There are a few Jack Dee episodes midway through, though the majority are chaired by Humph. It's great fun for the most part, although it's a shame that the BBC continue to keep so many episodes under wraps. You'll certainly enjoy listening to it, so savour it while you can. The final show is from the 1970s, which is quite fascinating but unfortunately they don't indicate the specific date or year of transmission. There's plenty of laughter on and off the stage, the type of which you'll never hear again thanks to the BBC Compliance Unit's pre-show meddling. That's why you don't hear Barry Cryer laughing during the shows anymore.

Amazing as always!

What a fantastic series of shows! Bit strange how they went from Humph to Jack dee and then back to Humph, and the last show on the whole production is one of the very very early recordings of isihac which includes Jo Kendall who I can't stand quite frankly. Other than that I thoroughly enjoyed it all and I hope there is a third treasury in the works!

Just as funny now...

I have grown up listening to this and am so glad to have this in my Audible library!
Moments of genius are scattered throughout from the entire cast. This will be one to return to ....though maybe not while on public transport as it does make you laugh out loud, in the car it has made long journeys seem short, love it!

A great mix of episodes!

A great range of episodes ranging from the days of Willie Rushton and Humph up to Jack Dee and various guests. Good value for money too.

A teensy bit disappointed

The magic combination of Humph, and his merry crew was as beguiling as ever and it was lovely to hear a few shows that have not been in previous collections. After all, there must be several hundred unpublished epidodes from thirty years of the original shows available from which the BBC could choose. However, from about chapter 26, the early Jack Dee presentations make an appearance, and although amusing, don’t hold a candle to Humph. Feel a bit cheated.

This doesn't work keeps stopping at the same place

Downloaded yesterday crashed after 5 mins, reset player zoomed on but crashed again after 8 minutes. Waste of time, this is the second book in 6 months that doesn't work. I downloaded the first series and it was very funny i was hoping this would be as good. I've downloaded it onto two players and it crashes in the same place on both, I re-down loaded from Audible but it still crashes on both players at the same place.
Very Poor imagine downloading and going on holiday only for it to crash after 5 minutes and that's it. Probably worth cancelling subscription.
