About I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue
BBC Radio’s multi-award-winning antidote to panel games returns to the stage in 2022 with its sell-out touring show.
Join Jack Dee for an unmissable evening of inspired nonsense with musical accompaniment from Colin Sell.
I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue has been delighting fans since 1972. Since its inception ‘Clue’ has seen its success blossom from the impish son of “I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again” to the big daddy of all panel games.
The format of the game is very simple – four players are given silly things to do by the Chairman, with Colin Sell setting some of them to music. It has always been billed as ‘the antidote to panel games’, although the panel games to which it was originally an antidote are now long gone.
I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue records two series a year in front of live audiences at venues around the country. In addition, the team tour a ‘best of’ version of the show on an annual sell-out tour hosted by Jack Dee and guest panellists including Tony Hawks, Miles Jupp, Rory Bremner, Pippa Evans, Richard Osman, Marcus Brigstocke and John Finnemore.
