JAM shows

Well for those who don't assiduously read all the comments...

We've established that the show has recorded at Winchester - team being Sir Clement Freud, Paul Merton, Chris Neill and Greg Proops.

Greg's first appearance since 1993 - and first double recording since 1988. Lovely to have an American voice back on the show!

Then at Tunbridge Wells, it was Clement, Paul, Kit Hesketh-Harvey and Maria McErlane.

And Rob Brydon says on his website he is about to do some JAMs - don't know when or where. Unfortunately his website won't load properly for me, so if anyone has more details let me know.

EDIT: The 1988 is a typo - should be 1998. And to make it clear I mean by double appearance recording two shows at on sitting.... he has done one-off shows since. I was corrected by Chris Neill in the comments, no less! Thanks Chris!

The exact quote from Rob Brydon's site:

On the 8th of December Rob will be the guest host on BBC 1's Have I Got News For You. In January of next year he will record two more editions of Radio 4's Just A Minute

Don't you need a licence to use words like "assiduously" in open conversation? :-)

With my former hat on as producer of Just A Minute, I'm sure it's not 13 years since Greg took part in the series.

He appeared at a single Edinburgh Festival recording at least once and at a double recording in the BBC Radio Theatre with (I think) Paul, Peter Jones and Graham Norton. Both of these shows happened at some point between 1997 and 2000. I think Claire Jones booked him,as well. Cheers.

Greg's been in quite a few, since then. I've got 7 that he's appeared on from 1994 - 2003. Looking forward to hearing him on the show again, he's great fun =]

Yes it was a typo - his first double appearance since 1998! He has done some single show appearances since....
