The Comedian And The Gameshow

Some of today’s most popular comedy shows are in fact panel games or game shows.  These are either presented by or feature panels of popular comedians.

So we thought we’d go back through the years and have a look at some of the classic game shows and their presenters, remember Kenny Everett bending Terry Wogan’s Microphone or Les Dawson’s true admiration of the quality prizes on Blankety Blank ?
