Tilusha Ghelani

A reader here, Ant, pointed me to this Wikipedia entry on the new Just A Minute producer, Tilusha Ghelani.

What's interesting is what a varied background she has. She's clearly very experienced in comedy.

Look at her choices for her first season. Of the 12 shows recorded, (one will be held over until the middle of the year)....

Paul Merton did 10 shows

Sir Clement Freud did eight shows

Chris Neill did four shows

Tony Hawks, Graham Norton, Sir Tim Rice, Kit Hesketh-Harvey, Gyles Brandreth, Sue Perkins, Maria McErlane, Greg Proops, Neil Mullarkey, Marcus Brigstocke, Pauline McLynn, Chris Addison and Alun Cochrane did two shows each.

You get the feeling she will be a producer who will spread her net widely!

Good luck Tilusha!

i'm quite happy for the new producer, in that with her background in comedy, she understands that the key to the show is very much within the confines of having the more experienced players be rotated with fresh new talent in the hope of perhaps gaining some fresh new semi-regulars as well. in addition she's brought back several voices that hadn't been on the show for quite a while, like Maria McErlane and Greg Proops.

hell, she could be the new David Hatch or something. long may she reign over this incredibly hilarious prgram.
