A teensy bit disappointed

The magic combination of Humph, and his merry crew was as beguiling as ever and it was lovely to hear a few shows that have not been in previous collections. After all, there must be several hundred unpublished epidodes from thirty years of the original shows available from which the BBC could choose. However, from about chapter 26, the early Jack Dee presentations make an appearance, and although amusing, don’t hold a candle to Humph. Feel a bit cheated.

The King of Panel Shows

As a (fairly) recent convert to Radio 4's comedy offerings the greatest joy has been discovering for the first time the King of panel games - I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. After endlessly listening to the first treasury collection earlier this year the wait for this second volume has been unbearable at times! I do not know of any other panel show that provides as many laughs per show as this one.

Humph may have been the master chairman but Jack Dee has been a more than able successor to his seat mixing the same biting wit Humph has with his deadpan delivery. I've had the pleasure of seeing the show live in the past 12 months - once in Halifax for a recording and once at the Lowry for the touring show and have not laughed as much.

This collection has been a great listen over the past couple of weeks since its release. A lot of the shows I have never heard before and the last couple of hours featuring the 30th anniversary recording, Clue Desert Island and the very first recording of the show was probably the highlight. Whether you are a Audible customer or not this collection is great value (better if a Audible member though!).

This and the first Treasury release are must buys.
