Regular panellists:
Richard Herring (Series 1-3),
Russell Howard (Series 3)


Avalon for Radio 4, 30 August 2005 to 8 May 2008 (pilot + 18 episodes in 3 series)


A panel game where four comedians are each given a different category, and put their top three in a sealed envelope. The player with the category then sits out while the others discuss the topic amongst themselves, culminating in each guessing what is in the envelope. Interspersed between each round are quick-fire questions, usually involving one or more members of the audience. Host Andrew Collins dishes out points for style, wit, and correct predictions.

Though the conversation is contemporary, the basic idea could have gone out in any era.


Devised by Tim Barber.
