Gag wars
24 December 2005 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

'Jokers Wild' was a light-hearted game-show in which two teams of comedians pitted their wits against each other, for the coveted prize of a bronze statuette of a jester. Chairman Barry Cryer would select a random topic, and challenge a comic to tell a joke based on it. If one of the opposition thought he knew the gag, he could interrupt by pressing an alarm, then he would have to complete it. There was also a solo spot where a comic was required to extract as many laughs as he could in two minutes! The long list of all-time great comedians who appeared on the show included Les Dawson, Arthur Askey and Ted Ray, along with some not-so greats such as Hope & Keen, Brian Marshall and the late Ray Martine. Good natured fun though it was, sometimes the friendly rivalry between the comics turned nasty. On one memorable occasion, Jack Douglas inferred that Les Dawson was stingy, resulting in a red-faced Les storming off the studio floor! He later returned with drinks for everyone - except Jack!
