Is it just me or is Paul Merton increasingly much funnier on radio than on TV?
I think it is perhaps the fact that Merton was a massive fan of the show before he was famous. When he lived in a lonley bedsit, he used to record episodes of the show on audio casettes. They served as the main form of entertainment for him, because he did not have a TV set. So getting on the show was very much a "Dream come true" for him. It's pratically a second home for him.
