Get Clued Up

You may not listen to Radio 4 and you may not have wondered what happened to the likes of Tim Brooke-Talyor, Graham Garden and Barry Cryer but cast such thoughts aside and treat yourself to comedy anarchy that wears chords and a comfy jumper.

This is one of the few comedy shows that has made me laugh out loud on a Sunday morning (in spite of my hangover). Highlights include rounds such as 'new definitions for words' (such as Tomahawk - a vegetarian bird of prey) and 'sing the lyrics of one song to the tune of another'.

I guarantee that when you have bought the anniversary special you will soon be adding the other volumes to your shopping cart and wondering how a jazz musician host and a smattering of 70s comedy stars can out joke the best of today's comedians.

A joy for old fans and new. Great to hear Willie Rushton and Humphrey Lyttelton again.

I'm sorry I haven't a clue.

sometimes the silly and irreverent humour just makes you laugh out loud so much that people around you think you are a blithering idiot.
