Summary
Based on comedy suggestions from the studio audience, this is ad-libbed comedy at its best. Comedians battle their way through a succession of games and romp through a world of literary styles, TV theme tunes, and film genres. Chairman Clive Anderson desperately tries to hold the whole thing together and the guests make it up as they go along in this riot of improvisation--which is often funnier than many scripted shows
