All these years I thought the prisoner in The Young Ones episode Flood was Spike Milligan.

Imagine being in the same room as Arnold and Ivor Cutler :)

I was thinking of Stephanie Cole but she's not quite there yet.

Worth repeating my post elsewhere on these forums following my visit to the Dad's Army Museum last year:

A nice anecdote emanating from my visit to the Dad's Army Museum last week: Shortly after it opened in 2007, Frank Williams was being shown around and was told "... and in here is a mock up of Captain Mainwaring's office". Quick as a flash he replied, "I think you'll find it's my office".

As I have posted on the "Army Game" thread, unfortunately Frank Williams is now virtually blind.

Oh yes.

Very good one - and thanks for taking up the challenge.

So kind of you.

Any more for any more?

Every aspect of comedy.
(Incidentally, I LOVE Carmen Munroe who came to Britain at 1819) :)

That would make her over 200.

It could mean she arrived at nearly 20 past 6 in the evening?

A personal favourite,Geoffrey Whitehead.

Parky.He comes here a lot.Not a comedian but he's interviewed a lot in his time.Emu would be the highlight for me.
