Jack Dee asks for one of Humph’s introductions, mentioning a fear that hearing his own voice on the show might spoil it for him. Ironic, considering that he then went on to be a panellist several times before taking over the chairman’s role! The show was broadcast only a few months after the loss of Willie Rushton so he appears in several of the clips, along with the other regulars Barry Took Graeme Garden and Tim Brooke-Taylor. Stephen Fry has the distinction of not only being one of the celebrities choosing their favourite moments, but also featuring in one of the clips as well.
