Rob Brydon's Annually Retentive is a British television show, first aired on BBC Three in July 2006. Devised by Paul Duddridge, it concerns the making of a comedy Panel Game show called Annually Retentive, themed around historical events, and hosted by Welsh comedian Rob Brydon. The show is deliberately parodic, as Brydon plays a hyper-realised (and nasty) version of himself, while the game show blatantly steals ideas from other, similar shows such as Have I Got News for You, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Mock the Week and QI.
Annually Retentive contains examples of:
- Hopeless Suitor Rob for the Guest Booker
- Straight Gay: Ben in Series 2.
- Stupid Sexy Flanders: Deb claims that Rob has this for Ben.
