A Charming Tribute,
This review is from: I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue: Chairman Humph - A Tribute (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
Is it possible that here was a man with no enemies? Witty, clever, talented, modest - who wouldn't enjoy an evening of his company? Given the way that certain panel game hosts have come and gone on tv, I suspect he wouldn't have lasted 35 odd years if he rubbed anyone up the wrong way. (I guess that would have been a job for Samantha, anyway.) I await the next series of ISIHAC with trepidation. I wonder if Humph might just be completely irreplaceable. Not many of us are.
This is a happy collection of reminiscences from friends and admirers - many of whom it seems were both of those things. It is naturally mostly Clue related, but there are plenty of touches of the life he had before ISIHAC propelled him to his status as a National Treasure.
Buy this and enjoy it. Especially the cheeky bits. (Anthony Worrall Thompson might just be about to keep Lionel Blair company in my thoughts.)
NB I have also recently read his autobiograpy "It just occurred to me" and that sits very nicely with this as a celebration of his life.
