Barry has been a panellist on four hundred and twenty-two shows. He currently holds the record for more appearances on the show than anyone else, if you include the six editions of the first series where he acted as chairman. ( Click here for a list of these.) Barry has a few running gags, most notably his tendency to insist that two consecutive words in Word For Word are the name of a sixties band and the fact that he [allegedly!] likes to drink.
