Matt Lucas's Radio 2 panel show to be piloted for TV

Matt Lucas's Radio 2 panel show And The Winner Is... looks set to transfer to television, as the BBC films a pilot episode.

British Comedy Guide, 18th April 2011

Panel-gamers Kevin Bridges, Jason Manford and Lee Mack are Matt Lucas's guests tonight, nominating things that are the most or best something, for comic effect. Many of the observations are established classics such as British tennis players being disappointing, or Taggart being dead. The laughs sneak through the cracks between the formatted spiels: tonight there's a good riff around Lucas's chocolate obsession, and it generally helps that the host is a fearsome comic performer. By far the funniest moment is Lucas's anecdote about a barney in a Scottish newsagent's, where he switches between Indian and Glaswegian accents with dizzying skill.

Video Clip: Greatest Song from a Rubbish Artist?

Here's a bit of web-exclusive fun for you: a clip filmed during the recording of Episode One. Who deserves the Lucas for Greatest Song from a Musical Artist Who is Otherwise Rubbish? Graham Linehan, James Corden and Katy Brand must decide...

BBC Comedy, 11th March 2010

In round two, more jokers try to outwit each other: zany stand-up Josie Long, comic writer Robert Popper and - the most impudent by far - actor David Schneider. Success will be rewarded with a "Lucas" - the newest, most arbitrary award around, named after jovial host Matt Lucas. Tonight he's after nominations for the most incomprehensible British accent, least practical pet and best war. That's if his guests can get a gag in edgeways: Lucas can't help jumping in with rib-tickling anecdotes, while selecting winners even more random than his categories. Not that we're complaining; this knocks the socks off the average, smug awards do.

Claire Webb, Radio Times, 4th March 2010

Matt Lucas (Little Britain, Shooting Stars) with a new panel game. It's an awards show, the Lucases being awarded for the best, worst, ugliest, scariest, etc. Tonight's guests, comedian Katy Brand, actor and writer James Corden (Gavin & Stacey) and TV writer Graham Linehan (the immortal Father Ted, the sublime Black Books and the underrated The IT Crowd) nominate contenders then hand out Lucases for The Lamest Excuse of All Time, Most Pointless Member of the Royal Family and Greatest Song By a Musical Artist Who Is Otherwise Rubbish.

Gillian Reynolds, The Telegraph, 25th February 2010

Matt Lucas hosts And the Winner is...

Have you won an award - a BAFTON or a Golden Globo perhaps? Well you may as well just throw it in the bin as it is now useless. The only award worth getting from now on will be a Lucas award (see above).
