stewart lee is clearly not above doing panel shows as he did a couple of episodes of the news quiz about ten years ago.

i am wondering if andy hamilton is too busy for panel shows these days- he hasn't been on the news quiz for a few years, and aside from his hignfy stints he isn't really the usual panel fodder.

There are a few people i wouldn't mind seeing a bit more often- charlie higson, lee mack, brian cox, dave gorman, jack dee- but i dare say that list will be the worst possible combination to someone out there.

You might be able to get Alan Moore in for a QI episode about Monsters; his work is staggeringly well-researched and he has been on things like The Museum of Curiosity and Infinite Monkey Cage. Has Richard Wiseman been on yet? He's actually quite funny for a Psychologist. Ooh and Matt Parker for the Maths episode.

I don't think Alan Moore has been on The Museum of Curiosity - unless it is a recording the forthcoming series that has yet to be broadcast.

No, I think you are right, I can't find the episode. If I did dream it though I can only tell you it was very interesting :)

alan moore was on chain reaction, which may be what you're thinking of. In fact i believe he may have been interviewed on it by stewart lee

Ye, they're quite close. He even appeared on Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle series and he has interviewed him on other radio shows about Moore's career and habit of giving away his cheque's for the films based on his novels.

My first post on this forum, so hi guys!

I would like to see Richard Herring or Stewart Lee on the show, although the latter hates being on panel game shows and has expressed regret for appearing on HIGNFY, 8 out of 10 Cats and Buzzcocks. He has likened them to drunken bar room conversations in which everybody tries to shout over everyone else in a desperate attempt to appear the wittiest. He has even named QI specifically as a show he doesn't particularly like.
I must say I think he is brilliantly funny and uses his "cultural bully from Oxbridge" image with such knowing irony that some (genuinely 'unknowing') people have fallen into the trap of accusing him of being a sneering, smug tosser. These people have trouble seeing beyond his affected (or at least 'exaggerated') stage persona. He is a fan of Johnny Vegas who he has worked with, but is pretty much a solo performer (since he and Richard Herring have very amicably gone their separate ways) and perhaps a bit too much of an 'outsider' for the jolly atmos of cliquey Qi.

Aisling Bea, who'll be in two of the L-episodes, just said on the radio here that her first QI recording was the most fun we'd ever had on a panel show. Just thought I'd pass that on.

Having now seen both her appearances, may I congratulate the casting crew on their find and wholeheartedly applaud the addition of this Queen Bea to the QI guestlist. Her contributions lacked inhibiting timidity towards national treasure Stephen Fry, (gently mocking Stephen briefly at the very start of her second episode), exhibited wit and intelligence, and no false modesty when the tone got lowered.

One minor beef with the episode, "Love", though: "Pennsylvania, where a lot of Dutch people went." was a slip of the research by the Elves, or of the tongue from Stephen. We've already established, that the "Dutch" in Pennsylvania Dutch were Germans.
(DUtch originally meant "Germanic", and came to refer to the Netherlands alone sometime after the establishment of the United Provinces, a.k.a. the Republic, as an independent integrating political unity after breaking away from Spain. I'd therefore be inclined to seek the origin of bundling to either side of the Netherlands, sooner than within.)

Stefan.

There were reasonable numbers of Dutch settlers in the early Americas -- New York was originally New Holland, remember. But Fry did seem to conflate Dutch with Pennsylvania "Dutch", and according to Wikipedia the practice of bundling is particularly associated with the Amish (Pennsylvania Dutch).

I enjoyed the "Lovely" episode, but it seemed... I don't know, superficial somehow. Apart from the extended discussion on aphrodisiacs, nobody seemed particularly involved with the questions.

In the United States of America, Pella Dutch (Pella, Iowa) is Dutch.

I did not mean to imply there are no Dutch at all in Pennsylvania or the USA, au contraire, but the "Dutch" in Pennsylvania Dutch were Germans, and "other prominent groups were Alsatians, Dutch, French Huguenots (French Protestants), Moravians from Bohemia and Moravia, and Swiss". The way the information was worded made it seem as if the Dutch were the largest group of settlers there and the reason for the appelation.
