QI E09 Recording Review

*This is episode E07 in the Autumn transmission order.

QI Fanatic couldn't make it to tonight's recording so he's left it to me to do the review for him again...not sure whether I'll be doing another one this series....we shall see :-)

Three quarters of the recordings of this series have now been done and that leaves a mere three recordings.

Once again the brilliant Stephen Grant was the warm up... He had a bit more time than usual however his job was made particularly hard tonight with lots of production staff milling around due to planning a small amount of audience participation which everyone will have to wait until October or so to see as I couldn't see what was happening...

When introduced, Alan Davies came out already filming so we shall be looking out for that latest video on YouTube!!

Now for a few bits of information which I shall hide in case you don't want to know who the guests were or the subjects discussed...

Tonight's guests were Clive Anderson, Jo Brand and Vic Reeves. When introducing Vic to the audience he said that this was Vic's second appearance but that is actually wrong (sorry Stephen!) as Vic did 2 recordings in Series D.

The main theme tonight was espionage and Stephen, Alan and the guests were suitably disguised with moustaches (where appropriate!), shades, hats and trench coats! Some of the topics discussed were (in no particular order) mobiles, magicians, nazis, 40 titans, ink, toilet paper, Napoleon, 4000 giants and lifts...

The vodcast introduction and goodbye were today done by Stephen, Alan and all the guests - anyone else looking forward to see what goes in these vodcasts??

I'm not sure if QI Fanatic can make it to all of the last 3 recordings so I may or may not be back...either way I hope you've found my posts Quite Interesting! ;-)

Andrew will have the pleasure of doing next Thursday's review as well. However, I'm sure he will be around on the blog for quite a while.

Unless, of course, you want reviews from another QI blog. You know where it is, too...

I'll happily be around these parts as long as you'll have me Mr QI Fanatic Sir! ;-)
