Uxbridge English Dictionary Summary


Uxbridge English Dictionary by Jon Naismith

To mark the 33rd anniversary of the birth of the antidote to panel games, we present the pick of the Definitions Round, a quirky cross between the Collins dictionary and 'Call My Bluff' that has had audiences in stitches for over a decade. I'm Sorry, I Haven't a Clue -- the antidote to panel games, has thrilled the nation for over thirty years. It is the most popular comedy show on BBC Radio 4 and the recordings for the programme are always sold out. With listener figures now over 2 million each week, I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue has become as firm a British institution as the Queen's lap-dancing club. For all those that have ever pondered the meaning of antidisestablishmentarianism (the wife of strangely named Northern uncle), bedlam (a very favourite sheep) or cenotaph (a Welsh laxative), this is the book for you. With cartoons by Graeme Garden and Humphrey Lyttleton and over 300 more definitions to push the boundaries of the English language and 'good clean family fun', I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue -- Definitions is a must have for any fan of British comedy at its best.

Uxbridge English Dictionary Reviews


Praise for I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue: 'One day people will envy us for living through the years when this magnificent half-hour enlivened every Sunday lunchtime. Ours will be known as the Golden Days of Radio.' -Sue Gaisford, Independent on Sunday 'I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue is Radio 4's best loved comedy show. Whether the teams are singing the words of one song to the tune of another, making up serial rhymes or entering the mythic maze of Mornington Crescent, they have now become the National Theatre of fun.' - Gillian Reynolds, Daily Telegraph
