    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.

    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.

    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"

    Brilliant.

    I agree, I like the show anyhow but Mortimer on it raises the bar!

    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.

    krtek a houby how's it going to end?

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