    My top three are probably Mitchell, Jupitius and either Bryden or Bailey.

    I just watched an episode with Jack Whitehall and he was pretty dang good!

    I love it when they have an American or Aussie or anyone who isn't from the UK so they can be just as clueless as me when they go on a specifically UK humor rant.

    oh god Rich Hall. it may be that it is just not my particular kind of humour but seeing him on the panel is always a big letdown for me.

    Rich Hall was pretty good in the Cruithne episode.

    And Jo Brand's 'Scunthorpe' joke in whatever episode that's from was excellent.

    I love this because Mitchell's got a hilarious laugh but more importantly because these sorts of moments are a kind worth living for
    all artifice and composure stripped from you in an instant, leaving nothing but a naked shining moment of the purest, utterly genuine joy

    i also really like Rob Brydon, Sandi Toksvig, and Phil Jupitus.

    i like Jo Brand, but she does a lot of husband jokes, and something about Sue Perkins is off to me, maybe her timing? but she's funny enough. Jimmy Carr, too. Rich Hall is just too weird for me, but i do enjoy the rare crack in his persona.

    those are my favorites as well

    I love when Rich Hall shows up on QI.

    His style of humor is just so utterly bizzare that I find it to be completely delightful.

    I can totally see it not resonating with people, but, personally I will take his style of completely weird humor over the generic "Oh did I just say something offensive?" style of Jimmy Carr.

    yeah I do get that about Jimmy Carr. as well with the researched jokes. but Rich Hall funny is imho just deadpan anything and be American.

    speaking of which and Legba's video.... there really should be more female panelistas because some of the ones that have been on just a few times have been hilarious. they are terribly hard to find on youtube I just found out.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Also, I have to confess, sometimes I find Rich Hall funny because of how painfully unfunny he is being while trying to be funny.

    I may be broken.

  • LegbaLegba Registered User regular
    Absolutely. But then, it's hard to find videos without the regular guests at all. I've been trying to find the episode with the guest who knew everything and Stephen Fry just gets more and more annoyed at being shown up, but it's nowhere to be found.

    However, more Rob Brydon Welsh jokes because they're the best!

    Oh I remember that episode!

    Can't remember who the guy was for the life of me.

    But he knew everything, and kept rambling on on side tangents that pretty much only he knew about.

    It was impressive but it wasn't great television.

    It's amusing when you notice that Rich Hall wins games of QI because he cracks two jokes and doesn't make a guess at anything so he doesn't lose points, but it does make him dead weight sometimes.

    that has to be the grey-haired guy who liked to do the Allan Rickman impression or the curley-haired one with the brown hair. probably the latter because the former was hilarious.

  • LegbaLegba Registered User regular
    It was amazing. It's the only time I can remember when Stephen Fry lost his cool.

    so we are stuck with a bit overweight, british, curley haired with no discernable haircut and a dark-ish shirt. could be most of Britain tbh :D

    One of my most favorite bits that I came across in an episode is "Why was the March Hare so important to the Aztecs?"

    Daniel Radcliffe was pretty great when he was on an episode. Not to mention extremely good natured about all the Harry Potter jokes.

    if it was really a problem, wouldn't the BBC be giving notices to youtube?

    I mean, it's not like they're hard to find, and they've been there for months, if not years

    yeah, Radcliffe is surprisingly down-to-earth

    he's pretty aware that he got the part largely because he hit the genetic lottery

    by all accounts he feels like he's got to justify his ridiculous luck and has become an extremely hard-working actor

    One thing that distracts me about Would I Lie To You? is the bright, single-colour backgrounds behind the teams. Every time they cut to Lee's team I think that someone hasn't activated a green-screen effect.
