Description

To mark the 25th anniversary of the birth of the antidote to the panel game, we present the pick of the limerick round. 1997/98 sees the anniversary of the legendary show I'm Sorry I Haven't a clue, the most listened to comedy programme on British radio. To celebrate this achievement we propose to publish a collection of the finest limericks from the 30 odd series. ISIHAC is an institution with regular panellists Tim Brooke Taylor, Graeme Garden, Barry Cryer and until last year Willie Rushton, overseen by jazz supremo Humphrey Lyttelton. Listener figures are now over 2 million each week and is now aired also on radio 2 the only radio comedy show to do so. Tickets are so keenly sought after shows are now held in thousand seat theatres around the country. By playing up the fogeyish qualities of the show in recent years it has attracted a substantial youth following. Guests such as Paul Merton, Stephen Fry and Jeremy Harding have also helped to bring in new ears.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
