Summary

The show that grabs listeners by the waist, swirls them round in time to a Strauss waltz, and then trips over the banana skins of convention.  

Laugh yourself silly with some of the most mind-stretching games ever to grace a quiz show: Cheddar Gorge, Gargle Gargle, Bedtime Stories, Good News Bad News, Tag Wrestling, and Mornington Crescent.

The unflappable Humphrey Lyttelton presides over panelists Tim Brooke-Taylor, Willie Rushton, Graeme Garden, and Barry Cryer who bring their own brand of wickedly improvised fun to the proceedings.

A Great listen

This is great for a long trip or if you are bored out of your mind, then again it depends on the listeners choice of where to listen to it. I am often stuck in a location like my nearest town with nothing to do, once I got this I had people looking at me weird because you'd find me always laughing.

You want something that will make even the less giggly people to laugh their pants off get this, it's worth every penny.

Rating out of 10 from me would be 10/10.

Always a clue

Have adored ISIhAC for years and it's great to find some of the classics here on audible. Give it a listen if you're a fan and relive so many wonderful memories

Five Old Farts and a Piano!

Inventive, funny and constantly moving. One of the most successful radio programs of all time and I can honestly say I'd never listened to it in my life!

This is good old-fashioned BBC humour but don't be fooled it's very fast-paced improvisation. The health warnings are two-fold . . . firstly some of the references may obviously not resonate with younger viewers and secondly as others have pointed out be prepared for people to think you're slightly mad as you chuckle your way down the street listening to it.

The first of many hilarious episodes.

Would you listen to I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, Volume 1 again? Why?

Evergreen stuff that is easy to listen to so long as you are content to be seen laughing on your own !

Would you be willing to try another book from the author? Why or why not?

Already in possession of most of them.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

All of 'em!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No...funny from start to finish.

Great, but don't buy it with a credit.

Love the humour and the show but if you want to get this with an audible credit I'd recommend the treasury which also costs a single credit but has hours of extra content!

I'm Sorry I Haven't A Review

If you're a fan of this on Radio 4, you know what just you're going to get and you'll love it. It's the original crew including the late Willie Rushton and Humph.
If you're not, try it out - you can always return it!
And if you can't play Mornington Crescent, you really need to get out more!

Spectacular Gameshow

This is not a normal kind of game show, I will admit that I could ot really see how points worked, but this is hilarious. I was laughing almost the entire time. I would recomend this o anyone wanting a good laugh. It is very much worth the book subscription.

BORING!!!

This was boring and not at all funny--I don't think I laughed one time. I can't believe it gets an average rating of 4.8 stars. I've heard you need a taste for British humor to like it, which I believe I do since I appreciate several British movie and television comedies (I lived in England as a kid). But this was an utter waste. Don't buy it.
