5 things you might not know about the I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue crew

Barry Cryer, Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Jeremy Hardy and Jack Dee are taking the beloved radio show on the road

1 Graeme Garden’s son John is the keyboard player for the Scissor Sisters. After being introduced to the Bristol Silents society by his dad, John created a new score for trailblazing dino-flick, The Lost World.

2 Tim Brooke-Taylor once directed Orson Welles in a film called 12 Plus 1. The iconic director was constantly under the influence and the former Goodie found that being rude was the only way to get through to him.

3 Barry Cryer had a number one hit single in Finland with ‘Purple People Eater’. It stayed at the top of the charts for a whole three weeks.

4 Jack Dee read George Orwell’s Down and Out in Paris and London and was then inspired to try his hand working in a busy kitchen. So, he bluffed his way into the Ritz in Piccadilly and managed to hold down a job for six months.

5 Jeremy Hardy’s great great grandfather was in the confederate army in the American civil war but was thrown out for repeated inebriation. The paymaster of a ship in the navy described him as ‘a stupid’ and ‘a drunken’.
