bits and pieces

Apologies I haven't been saying much - have been very ill...

My thoughts on this week's show - Fred MacAulay was very good. He should do the show more often - but it seems like he's only thought of when they're recording in Scotland. But he was everything a guest should be, combative, involved, witty.

Jo Caulfield didn't get very involved. It's hard going in your first game. Hard to think of people in recent times that have done well in their first show - Chris Addison did well. Lee Mack was good. She needed to get more involved even if it was in an Elaine-Stritch sort of way.

Paul and Clement were both good. An enjoyable show.

Teams for the next few weeks

Aug 27 - Clement Freud, Paul Merton, Marcus Brigstocke and Janey Godley
Sep 3 - Paul, Marcus, Pam Ayres and Maureen Lipman
Sep 10 - Paul, Gyles Brandreth, Jenny Eclair, Julian Clary
Sep 17 - the show to be recorded at Stratford-upon-Avon on Sep 9. Don't know the full team yet - Clement will be there, Paul will not. I'm picking Graham Norton, Sue Perkins and Juan Moore.
Sep 24 - Clement, Paul, Tony Hawks and Dave Gorman.
