Summary

Starring the cream of UK writer/performers and comedians over its lifetime, including Simon Pegg, Sue Perkins, Miranda Hart, Nick Frost, Bill Bailey and Armando Iannucci, this is the complete and utter award-winning silly panel game that's not about music, sport, advertising or hats.

The show was written by the writers of Friday Night Armistice and Black Books and was described by The Guardian as “good enough to be the successor to I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue".

Plus bonus series King Stupid that launched the whole thing, starring Sue Perkins, Simon Pegg, Morwenna Banks and Peter Baynham, the brains behind I'm Alan Partridge and Sacha Baron-Cohen's cowriter.

Hear them as they spend a whole series trying to decide which stall they'd like to see at a village fete and decide it's a toss-up between Paint the Face of a Child on a Tiger stall and a Get the Angry Bear Down from the Cross competition. Meanwhile, they'll be discussing such vital issues as how to beat crime and how to sip coffee through a sausage, and they'll also be pondering the question "if an apple a day keeps the doctor away, what does a watermelon a minute do?"

I originially quite disliked this but it improved.

I like Sue Perkins, Armando Iannucci, Simon Pegg, and most of the others in other works but this started put badly. I stuck with it and the latter half of the audio recorded was actually funny. There were more risqué jokes about priests and such that they probably wouldn't get away with today.

The 'King Stupid show was dire though. It ends with Chapter 6, I would skip it.

Not 99p, but well worth any asking price!

I needed a good laugh & got this one with no idea what it was about, and was pleasantly surprised to discover just how fun & funny it is. Highly recommended.
