Genteel nightmare Terry Wogan is back to create the world’s greatest gameshow. They tried to stop him but they couldn’t.
There are too many gameshows and Sean Morley (North Wave) and Benjamin Alborough (Weirdos Comedy Collective) reunite to sort this out. Ever wanted to play Who Wants to be a Pointless University Blankety Song Contest? Now’s your chance. But be warned; Terry might attempt to disrupt this process by flogging minidisk players.
All changes to gameshow rulesets voted on by the audience will be incorporated unconditionally. The only rule is that there are no rules! Providing that the no-rule rule obtains assent through the official rule making process.
