Just a Minute

Once upon a time before there was a television in almost every home people listened to the radio which offered several comedy gems from Britain, including Just A Minute.

The object was for one of the four panelists to speak for sixty seconds on a given topic without repetition, hesitation or deviation and withstand challenges from the other three if they repeated, hesitated or deviated.

It’s a lot harder than it sounds but the clever meanderings of the speakers and witty interjections from the challengers made for very amusing listening.

One of the regular panelists was Sir Clement Freud who died this week.

Hat Tip: Liberty Scott who posts a tribute  with links to obituaries.
