Publisher's Summary

A bumper collection of classic fun and games from one of BBC Radio 4's best-loved and most enduring comedy panel games.

The inimitable Humphrey Lyttelton is in the chair for these 36 hilarious editions, collected together for the first time. He presides over regular players Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer, Graeme Garden and Willie Rushton, plus guests including Stephen Fry, Tony Hawks, Andy Hamilton, Paul Merton, Sandi Toksvig and Jeremy Hardy.

Hear them having their wicked way with favourite rounds, including One Song to the Tune of Another, Limericks, Sound Charades, Cheddar Gorge and Swanee Kazoo. The teams are helped along by lively audiences from a variety of British towns and cities, and, as is customary on Clue, Colin Sell is at the piano, and the lovely Samantha sits on Humph's right hand.

Also included is a special episode, 'Everyman's Guide to Mornington Crescent', which reveals the full and unexpurgated history of the greatest game on earth; and Willie Rushton's last show, featuring an introductory tribute from Ned Sherrin.

A feast of unrestrained revelry and inspired ad-libs, this is the authentic, award-winning antidote to panel games. Accept no substitutes!

Duration: 18 hours approx.

I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue Treasury

This show is so funny that I sometimes distract my coworkers because I can't keep myself from laughing out loud.

The show's format is similar to Who's Line Is It, Anyway? with the host mediating while the panelists ad-lib responses, finish famous quotes in unexpected ways, sing one song to the tune of another, provide budget-cut or failed movie/book titles, and play games.

I was excited to see recently that a second treasury is set for release in October, 2017 - and I have already pre-ordered it (it's May).

If you like British comedy - be it Monty Python or Last of the Summer Wine - I think you will enjoy this program.

Laugh out loud

There are not many radio comedy shows that make me laugh out loud - but this is one of them. The timing and delivery of the late great Humphrey Littleton is priceless. Worth every penny when you just want to listen to some gentle humour and downright silliness

Absolutely hilarious

It is wonderful to have this as one long playlist, however as I bought all the previous series of isihac collections, it is rather annoying that this treasury is made up of these. So far I've not found one single episode I haven't got already.

British humour at its finest

A magnificent selection of the best half hours from the last 30 or 40 years.
Occasionally repetitive but in an enjoyable way. Spotting the repetition becomes a pleasure in itself.

Absolute classic

Easy listening and great (even if a little dated) fun! Slight editing problems (hear a few minutes twice) but overall a great compilation.

A Real Treasury

Fans of the show will not be disappointed, simply brilliant, Humph is Chairman throughout this collection, so none from the more recent series. Some absolutely classic moments, with Willie Rushton stealing the show in the earlier episodes. Jeremy Hardy and Tony Hawkes appear as guests in the later shows, along with Harry Hill, Stephen Fry and Paul Merton. That's about it for my review, but there's just time for a round of Fisherman's Songbook before I finish....

Brilliant, brilliant brilliant!

What more can I say? the fun and humour of these episodes is just a joy to listen to. I like the fact that I can use this as a stop gap and just list for half an hour or an hour depending how much time I have to listen, but most of all I love the cleverness of the panellists' wit!! Brilliant.

Sheer brilliance in parts....

Would you consider the audio edition of I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue Treasury to be better than the print version?

Not applicable

What did you like best about this story?

Fast paced wit, fabulous entertainment.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, best savoured in 30-60 minute bursts....too funny to go on longer!

Any additional comments?

I still don't understand Mornington Crescent! A great compilation of episodes, well worth a giggle

Good old fashioned gags and silly fun

Didn't know what to expect when I bought this, but was pleasantly surprised, just good old fashioned silly fun and a poke in the eye at traditional panel games .

Perfect

Classic comedy. Jeremy Hardy's singing is legendary. I was delighted Clanger Theatre made the selection, genius.
