this week's show

Was certainly the funniest of the season so far - because Paul Merton was at his brilliant best. Paul is by some distance the best of the current players of the game and was outstanding on his life as a tattooist and talking about his boyfriend kept in Clement's fridge, while supposedly discussing the London Marathon.

This led to something that I have never heard on the show before - the subject was changed in the middle of the round! Nicholas has sometimes added to the subject mid-round but never changed it before. In this case the subject for the last four seconds became "Simon", supposedly the name of Paul's boyfriend.

I thought Julian Clary was particularly good. He has been in great form in the two Greenwich shows.

Next week Ross Noble and Tim Rice are the guests - should be good!

The Edinburgh Fringe recordings take place on the 16th (I think).

As an expat(as you?)fan of "JAM", I'm surprised and charmed by your blog, and your incredible knowledge of the programme. I teach English at university in France, and sometimes use JAM in my lessons - with my best students of course! Goes down great: makes me wonder if it's ever been adapted for non-English radio. Do you know?
