    Panel shows. You know. Easy option. Not groundbreaking comedy.

    However. Let me put it to you that Bob Mortimer on Would I Lie To You is a thing to behold. It’s an art form in itself. They should do a compilation show of Bob’s appearances.

    I’ve just watched him claim that Chris Rea ran a bath for him and cracked an egg into it after a recording session in what must have been Eel Pie Studios. I was laughing so much I could hardly breathe.

    Thanks Bob.

    Bob is the only good thing about WILTY

    He's so good because he can tell the absolute truth but make it sound ridiculous, like when he burned down the family home as a kid.

    starfish No dialogue. Just plot.

    I was in tears, so was ms starfish. Funniest thing in a long time.

    Bob and the apple. This is utter mastery of the funny story.

    The only non-Bob WILTY story that approaches Bob level is Kevin Bridges and the horse

    That story about Chris rea and the egg was one of the funniest things I have seen in ages.

    And I knew he'd done the Boro Cup song with him so I was thinking "maybe it's true, maybe Chris Rea is just a mad bastard"

    I like WILTY. I particularly remember Joan Bakewell having to convince the panel that she had half a lager for breakfast every day :)

    I liked James Acaster's cabbage wars story however long ago that was. Probably not long since he's about 12.

    My exact thought process too!

  17. Bob and Sean Lock are probably the best pannellists on any of these shows.

    Coincidentally, mate shared the compilation with me yesterday.

    I'd seen the Chris Rea egg story recently, and I think the apple, but none of the rest. Amazing stuff.
    That's really it, fact and fiction sound the same when he tells it.

    Ah, but if you knew him, you'd know that's just so Chris...

    I found the compilation by accident yesterday, Mortimer is just hilarious in a way that I never noticed in his other shows. WILTY could have been made for him! :)
