Publisher's Summary

It's back: the Radio 4 panel game that's not about sport, music, television, advertising, books, hats, or gardening, just funny rounds with funny ideas. Written by Kevin Cecil and Andy Riley, who won a BAFTA award for writing Robbie the Reindeer for Aardman Animations, the show is hosted by the glorious Sue Perkins (of Mel & Sue fame). The regulars are Simon Pegg (of Spaced and Big Train), Armando Iannucci (On the Hour and I'm Alan Partridge) and Peter Baynham (writer/performer of Blue Jam, Channel 4's Brass Eye and Steve Coogan's I'm Alan Partridge). Other guests across the series include Peter Serafinowicz (star of World of Pub and Simon Nye's How Do You Want Me?); fast-rising star of Spaced Nick Frost; banned Xfm DJ Tom Binns, star of BBC1's The Savages; Marcus Brigstocke; and writer/performer David Quantick (whose show Junkies is the first-ever sitcom premiered on the Net). The producer is David Tyler, whose radio credits include Radio Active, Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation, and The Very World of Milton Jones, and whose TV credits include Spitting Image, Pauline Calf's Three Fights Two Weddings & A Funeral, Absolutely and Coogans Run. The show is a Pozzitive Television production, whose most recent TV credit is Victoria Wood's much-acclaimed sitcom Dinnerladies. Contains all six episodes.

Very funny!

This is a kind of "alternative" version of "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" - great guests, extremely well presented by Sue Perkins, and very very funny!
