One of the funniest audio CDs I've heard!,
This review is from: "Just a Minute": The Best of 2009 (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)For those of you who are unaware, Just A Minute is a radio show presented by Nicholas Parsons in which four panelists are challenged to talk on random subjects for a minute without any deviation, repitition, hesitation or exaggeration. If they make one of these errors, the other panelists can buzz in with a challenge and if successful, they take on the subject with the remaining time.
This CD set was my first experience of the show and I found it surprisingly funny! Parsons is a lovely, genial host and reminds me a little of Stephen Fry. The panelists are all excellent and their rants about their assigned subjects tend to be hilarious. The interaction amongst the panel members is very funny too. If you like panel shows such as Have I Got News for You or 8 Out of 10 Cats then you will probably enjoy this too.
These CDs are perfect to have on for a good laugh whilst you're doing the washing up or other odd jobs at home. I would say that they are perhaps a little frenetic for listening to in the car, and also be aware that they can be quite rude, so maybe try not to put them on around children!
