On one cd, two older Christmas editions of Clue - complete with Willie Rushton; on the other the Tour de Force that is Ebenezer Scrumph running a music emporium, aided by his poorly paid pianist, Colin Crotchet.

Not only does this now stand as a fine tribute to Humph, but also to the late, great Linda Smith - one of the very few women ever permitted on the show (Jo Kendal, Denise Coffey, Sandi Toksvig - who is in this production - and if you can think of any others, let me know!). And in the role of Mrs Crotchet, she sneaks one of the best lines in the show: "Colin!" she cries, "did you open the door all by yourself? What a clever pianist you are. Normally you can't find the key and don't know where to come in..."

I rest my case. It's one of the best things you'll ever listen to with "Christmas" in the title.

(Oh - and for some reason I thought Stephen Fry could sing. Not when he's got to partner Jeremy Hardy, it seems...)

Most Christmas specials are dire :- the same bad jokes about turkey, wrapping and dissapointing presents.The "ISIHAC" team instead hilariously mock "A Christmas Carol" but manage to fit in the usual games :- cover your ears as Fry & Hardy salughter "A wandering Ministrel"; Samnatha is at it gain and "Mornington Crescent" is given the royal treatment.

Clever, witty and festive, audio Prozac I believe !

Went to see this show on its recording and thought it was one of the best nights entertainment. The CD is just as good, with Stephen Fry's narration.
If you want a laugh this is for you, well worth it.

The radio programmes on theses two discs are extremely funny and very well written. There are many subtle jokes in each programme and the audiences respond well to all the comedians who take part in them. I enjoyed every minute of them and no doubt I will listen to them on many occasions in the future.
