A comedy panel game in which being Quite Interesting is more important than being right. Stephen Fry is joined each week by four comedians to share anecdotes and trivia, and maybe answer some questions as well.
Rob Brydon: When I was small and my dad just happened to hit his finger with a hammer for something new, he used to say, 'Hells bells and buckets of blood.' Stephen Fry: That's a good saying 'Hells bells and buckets of blood.' I usually just say "Fuck it!"
Phill Jupitus: [during a round about the sinking of the Titanic] Is it true that someone dressed as a lady to escape detection? Stephen Fry: Yes, apparently it is true because it was women and children first. Bill Bailey: [laughs] I thought you said "someone dressed as a *baby*" Phill Jupitus: [putting on posh accent] "Yes, goo-goo indeed. I have a lollipop and I have no control over my urinary functions. I am, in fact, an infant. And I know you think I'm Lord Albermal, but I am in fact a little baby. With a beard. Yes, goo-goo, gaa-gaa. And Madam, may I tell you I've been a very naughty baby."!
Stephen Fry: [quoting Albert Einstein] Only two things are infinite - the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not so sure about the universe.
Jo Brand: Why are there no aspirins in the jungle? [pause] Jo Brand: The parrots-eat-em-all!
Alan Davies: [after his buzzer is a sexy woman's voice saying "Ahoy, hello sailor"] Hang on, hang on, who was that? [pushes buzzer again] Alan Davies: Hells bells.
Stephen Fry: [holding his clenched left fist out in front of him] If I've got a moth ball in this hand and a moth ball in that hand, [bringing out his right fist] Stephen Fry: What have I got? Alan Davies: Two moth balls? Stephen Fry: A rather excited moth. Alan Davies: Sorry, I thought you were literally asking.
Stephen Fry: [after much teasing over flubbing the words, Stephen finally gets to say it properly] They say of the Acropolis, where the Parthenon is... there are no straight lines!
