^ Ian Hislop's Oldest Jokes
Radio 4 - 2024
Ian Hislop looks back to try and find the first examples of these jokes or comedy genres. We love a good parody but when did that become a thing? Can we really find Anglo-Saxon Double Entendre? You bet we can, and filthy to boot, another trove of British Humour.
He visits libraries, museums and chapels, and also talks to comedy stars and writers of today like Nina Conti, Paul Whitehouse, comedy song writing duo Jo and Joan and parodist Craig Brown.

Double entendre
The Drunk and the Bullion Stone
VIsual Humour and Misericords
The Heege Manuscript
Animal Magic
Parody and Sir Topaz
Any Women here?
Who is De Hoeghe
Comic Song

This should show the episodes as and when they are available on Sounds
