I would really like to see Sir Terry, Michael Palin, and Paul Merton on the same panel.

I always enjoy watching Jimmy Carr on the show. :D

Yes that was soooo funny. Not only a previous show but also a previous series :lol:

Bill Bailey and Dara O'Briain :lol: I adore Dara, he's a seriously brilliant guy as well as being incredibly funny, and Bill is just a magical little gnome.

Cannot stand Jo Brand.......

Penfold - I used to like Michael Palin until I watched his travel show, which was very humourless and noticeably .....what's the word.......not racist, but something like it. His seemed very bemused by all these odd little foreign people. Sort of supercilious.
In the beginning there was nothing, and then it exploded.

the maker of QI actually tried to get Michael Palin to present the show. He nearly gave up the idea when he couldn't get him. :shock:

Ewww, no. Thank god for that! Stephen Fry is perfection for it.

I've never seen this show, I will have to look for it.
I like Fry, I like Sandy Toksvig, and a few others that have been nominated, some I don't know.
I will definitely look for it, hope I can find episodes on you tube :P

This is probably the most famous bit of fooling on the show so far, followed closely by any of David Mitchell's angry rants about things like bread.

Favourites: David Mitchell, Rich Hall, Jack Dee and Ross Noble.

Kinda in two minds about Jimmy Carr. He's got an annoying laugh, don't like his stage personality but his jokes are usually pretty good.

Not a fan of Phil Jupitus, Sean Lock or Sandi Toksvig.

This is why Jack Dee's one of my faves :)
