Book Description

29 Mar 2012
These are four more extended episodes from the award-winning BBC Radio 4 series specially compiled by producer Jon Naismith. This thirteenth collection of the antidote to panel games finds Jack Dee giving regular panellists Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden silly things to do - along with special guests Jeremy Hardy, Sandi Toksvig, Rob Brydon and David Mitchell. Highlights include "Uxbridge English Dictionary", "One Song to the Tune of Another", "Sound Charades", "Historical Voicemail", "Bankers' Film Club", "Sound Effects Storytime", "Party Guests", "84 Chicken Cross Road", "Trail of the Lonesome Pun", "Greetings Cards", "Unseen Prequels" and, of course, "Mornington Crescent". So get ready to laugh out loud as the gang indulge in more wonderful wordplay, accompanied by Colin Sell on the piano and the lovely Samantha, who's always ready for a quick score. "Risky, rude, brilliantly written and superbly performed". (The Judges, Sony Radio Academy Awards).

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific comedy - as ever 21 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When Humph left "I'm sorry" many of us wondered if there was going to be any suitable replacement. Jack Dee has filled the void admirably - a different style, but his pithy dry wit absolutely does the job.

The format continues to evolve modestly with new games (many of which are thinly disguised versions of old ones).

But the humour is unending and remains very very funny.

Not much of a review really, but just to say this show continues to be fantastic lunatic relief from the world, and on 2 CDs the pleasure is there for the taking

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
After running for nearly four decades, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue still hasn't run out of steam or material, holding up strongly without the need of life support just yet with its eclectic mixture of celebrity-owned duck impressions, competitive boasting, product plugging, Uxbridge English Dictionary (cue plenty of pirate jokes), Swannee kazoo sessions, letters from Mrs Trellis of North Wales (book token to the usual address) and, of course, Mornington Crescent. These four extended episodes feature cheerful host Jack Dee, regulars Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Barry Cryer along with guests David Mitchell, Jeremy Hardy, Rob Bryden, Marcus Brigstocke date from 2010 and 2011, comprising of extended episodes from Cambridge and Cheltenham and two compilation episodes from Nottingham (taken from two different shows nearly a year apart) and Chatham (taken from three episodes recorded over the space of a year). The editing is certainly seamless, though the quality is somewhat variable: the first episode is easily the best, with the remainder sloping off somewhat while still providing plenty to laugh at, especially in the musical rounds, with Graeme Garden's rendition of Shaft to the tune of My Grandfather's Clock, Marcus Brigstocke's rendition of Mr Boombastic and Rob Brydon's I've Got a Brand New Combine Harvester threatening to stay with you for weeks to come. Not quite the gold standard for the series, but still a lot of fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Silly Things To Do With Dee And The Crew 5 April 2012
By Mr. B. R. Good VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've been collecting every single ISIHAC CD set, since the BBC started producing them. My opinion has always been that the writing, the panel members and the complete disregard for the conventional panel game format - has created the perfect show.

Apart from Marcus Brigstocke, a man who leaves me cold, v.14 has a classy line-up, Jeremy Hardy, Sandi Toksvig, Rob Brydon are superb. David Mitchell is becoming less funny with every show he does, but not to worry.

When, sadly - Humph (Humphrey Lyttelton) passed away, there was an uncertain period. Who would replace him? It HAD to be a presenter who adopted the same cynical manner. The genius of Humph was that he never really wanted to be there, and found the jokes tedious. [it was an act!]. Thank goodness Stephen Fry was not chosen. He is everywhere and is far too 'sweet and safe'. Rob Brydon was good when he presented a few shows but Jack Dee is the ideal choice. Bored by the jokes and the script, he'd rather be at home, [just like Humph!].

Admittedly, not every segment works. In my opinion the Uxbridge English dictionary should be even longer, it's my favourite part of the show. The 'One Song to the tune of another' can wear a little thin, and Mornington Crescent is...just weird - BUT the general banter, innuendo and comedy is painfully funny.

Barry Cryer could make anyone laugh - just reading a bus timetable, and the 2 former Goodies never fail to provide hilarity. This particular volume is perhaps one of the less funny, slightly patchier series, yet I still believe it deserves 5 stars.

Long may it continue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mornington Crescent returns! 21 Mar 2012
By M. J. Jacobs VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a cracking collection of great episodes. Jack Dee has stepped in as host to replace the late Humphrey Littleton, and although his style is different, it has the same quirky delivery that we have come to expect. The cast are excellent, although all sounding just that little bit older. A bit like some of the jokes!

It was a real pleasure to see that after a bit of a rest, Mornington Crescent has returned. If you don't know the rules of this classic game by now, don't worry, you never will! It's how they play it...

Uxbridge English Dictionary, a more recent game, allows the teams to define words according to their love of puns.

Other classics such as one song sung to the tune of another is timeless, and with the wit and cameraderie that we have come to expect from Grahame Garden, Tim Brooke Taylor et al, it is another bumper pack of laughs, however corny. I have been listening to and loving this programme pretty much since it started in the 1970s, and it still stands up proud, and ready to entertain. It is clever, intelligent comedy, much smarter than most modern radio comedy shows.

If you like this, you will probably also like The Goodies ... At Last! - BBC [DVD] or Just a Minute: The Best of 2011 (BBC Audio).

5.0 out of 5 stars Riotous fun guaranteed! 24 April 2012
By Mr. R. Lee-van Den Daele VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What could I possibly add by way of a useful review of this latest set of ISIHAC?

If you know the show (and who with a reasonably sharp sense of humour has any reason not to be a devotee, I wonder?) there is not much I can tell you. Like others, I had some reservations when Jack Dee took over from the much-missed late Humph. I thought his "studied" air of deadpan would not really suit the show - well not as host, anyway. But I have grown more accustomed to him now - though Humph's way of serving up the smutty innuendo with all the innocent guilelessness of an unwordly maiden aunt, could never be bettered in my view.

The regulars are all there on this set - by which I mean both the panellists (whether real or fictional as in the case of the much-maligned, resident nymphomaniac, Samantha) and the rounds.

I would heartily recommend this to anyone* - it's always in the car for fun on long journeys and why not sample some of the other editions available too?(*though Lionel Blair may wish to give it a wide berth).

A hysterical show that maintains, and exceeds, its own very high standards and provides riotous good fun for anyone. Brilliant!
