Oh, that guy.

I wonder how many in this thread said that when they got to your post?

Nice guy. I met him once at the African Education Conference.

Ah, I remember Lionel Blair on Give Us a Clue, the British mime quiz (all courtesy of I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue who spoofed him so often)

The most highly skilled of all was Lionel Blair, but how the tears of frustration welled up in his eyes during their Italian tour, at not being allowed the use of his mouth to finish off Two Gentlemen Of Verona.

Who can ever forget opposing team captain Una Stubbs sitting open mouthed as he tried to pull off Twelve Angry Menin under two minutes!

Possibly the most versatile performer was Lionel Blair, and no one will ever forget the occasion he was given A Town Like Alice, when he chose to do a silent impression of the author. Such was the performance, Una Stubbs gasped in amazement when she saw Neville Shute in Lionel's face...

Give Us A Clue was made all the better by it's resident expert Lionel Blair, who was particularly good at the films of Richard Gere. Who can forget the gleam of satisfaction in his eye when he was given Yanks by Michael Aspel for two minutes .

He danced with sixth doctor's companion. I just finished Colin's run and recognized her name in the article.

Wasn't he on "As Time Goes By" with Judi Dench?
