Thursday's London recording

Three names now known from this show - Paul Merton, Gyles Brandreth and Kit Hesketh-Harvey.

I'd guess the fourth slot went to someone relatively inexperienced, possibly even a newcomer. Someone like Phill Jupitus or Chris Addison or Robin Ince.

Long-shot - the American comedian and occasional JAM panellist Greg Proops is touring the UK at the moment...

EDIT: Someone has posted in the comments that panellist number 4 was Shappi Khorsandi.

I *think* the BBC's newsletter said they were to occur in London so it'll be their mistake? Lol.

Nice to read that KH-H has returned :-)

I was there on Thursday and fourth seating was Shappi Khorsandi. It was a very funny recording. Gyles was very zealous and competitive in the first show (which was quite frightening as I was directly in front of him in the front row!) but was much quieter in the second. He had had three hours sleep and there were several jokes about him being on drugs and his being a lothario. Kit, Shappi and Paul were also very funny. The final topic on the first show was something like "What I make lists about", Paul started and he talked about Clement doing lists in previous shows which was a sweet moment.
