This week I’m going to introduce my fellow American’s to a new British panel or comedy show everyday.
I’ve Never Seen Stars Wars, which is based on the BBC Radio 4 series of the same name, is not one of the more popular panel shows. It only ran on BBC Four and BBC Two for 8 episodes in 2008 on and had 1 special in 2011. The original host was Marcus Brigstocke, who I have honestly never heard of before, but has an awesome name. Jo Brand hosted the 2011 special. Both Brigstocke and Brand are good hosts, but I prefer Jo Brand. However, I am extremely biased toward anything with Stephen Fry, who is the guest in that episode, so don’t let my opinion sway you.
Many of the celebrities are not well-known to Americans with the exception of maybe Stephen Fry and Clive Anderson, who was the host of the British version of Whose Line is it Anyway?. Despite not knowing the guest celebrities well, the show is still very funny.
The following clips are from Marcus Brigstocke’s run as host and features Clive Anderson as a guest.
