Show Me



Joe Brown


Anglia for ITV, 1987


Dimly-recalled afternoon game hosted by songster Joe Brown. From the information we have available, it seems to have been an adaptation of the parlour game where somebody leaves the room, everyone else thinks of an adverb and when they come back in they have to guess the adverb by watching somebody doing something "in the style of the adverb".

So you'd get questions like "Show me how you'd buy a train ticket eagerly". And to think some people get paid for thinking up stuff like this.


It was later piloted in the USA but never made it to air there. The Game Show Pilot Light has a write-up of the show.
