AS I may have mentioned, I was at the recording of The Unbelievable Truth on Monday. Here's a bit about it. I don't want to give too much away as it's worth waiting for the broadcasts.
The premise of the show is the same as the pilot: the panel of four people each have to talk on a given subject, with the talk mostly consisting of lies. They have to include 5 truths which the rest of the panel have to try and spot.
I saw two shows recorded on Monday, with the panel of Jeremy Hardy, Alan Davies, Jo Brand and Clive Anderson, and host David Mitchell. Jeremy was great with his so-fantastical-as-to-be-believable talks and as the only person who'd played before (in last year's pilot), he did quite well. In fact he won the second show, and pulled the most amazing "Wow! I've won!" face when he realised. Where I was sitting, on the front row, it was great fun to watch him, especially when he was looking so cute with his glasses on! :wub:
The rest of the panel were a mixed bag. Alan Davies' talks both seemed to go on for much longer than the others, and he did a similar kind of thing to what he sometimes does in QI; buzzing in and then listing through lots of things which could be true in the hope of hitting on a real one. Jo Brand was good and very funny and seemed to believe everything anyone said as true, so she buzzed in lots, but lost lots of points. She did have the round in which I spotted lots of the truths. Clive Anderson had the unfortunate position of being last, so I think everyone was a bit tired by the time he got to talk. Again he had some interesting topics in which I spotted a couple of truths. It was difficult, because I was on the front row, not to nod or make any comments when I spotted these, although I'm sure the panel wouldn't have been looking at me!
