Description

The first course was "The Complete Limericks Collection" which sold over 30,000 copies in the trade last Autumn. Now the team is ready to expose every bit of their talent assisted by Sven, Samantha and Mrs Trellis. Profoundly illustrated, we revisit: the "Late Arrives at the Ball", "Celebrity Lonely Hearts", "Famous Unsuccessful Chat Up Lines", "Famous First Words", "Hitler's Diaries" (ideas for fraudulent diaries from other famous folk), "Unhelpful Advice" (the team supplies unhelpful advice to among many a sex education class and new parliamentarians), "Mrs Trellis' Letters", "Name That Barcode", "National Anthems" (suggestions for unusual anthems for countries around the world), "Humphrey's Opening Links", "Proverbs in Translation", "Through the Keyhole", "Topical Nursery Rhymes", "Low budget Remakes of Famous Films" ...and much more. "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue" is the most listened-to comedy programme on British radio, an institution with regular panellists Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, Barry Cryer and until 1996 Willie Rushton, being given silly things to do by jazz supremo Humphrey Lyttelton. Listener figures are now over 2 million each week and is now aired also on Radio Two, the only radio comedy show to do so. Tickets are so keenly sought after shows are now held in two thousand seat theatres around the country. This is the big humour title for Christmas.show more

About Tim Brooke-Taylor

Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, Barry Cryer, Willie Rushton, Humphrey Lyttelton. Barry Cryer's writing credits include material for Morecambe and Wise, Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson, Bruce Forsyth, Rory Bremner and Jasper Carrott, to name but a few. As if this was not enough, he has also collaboratively penned series like Hello Cheeky! and appears regularly on I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, and Just a Minute. He delighted audience with his one-man show The First Farewell Tour. He was made an OBE for services to comedy in 2001. Doctor Graeme's Aberdonian roots are dyed a pleasing flesh colour. In 1968, while waiting in a queue for treatment at King's College Hospital, London, Graeme carelessly qualified as a doctor. Fame eluded him with The Goodies and the original idea for I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue was Graeme's, but he generously refuses to take all the blame.show more
