Trivia

Stephen Fry and Alan Davies were originally cast as the leaders of the "clever" team and the "stupid" team, respectively. Michael Palin was asked to be the host, but he didn't feel he was right for the role. After Fry and Davies settled into their roles, the idea of having two teams was discarded. See more »

Very good
6 November 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I have often heard Stephen Fry accused of being pleased with himself for being so clever. This implies that there is something intrinsically wrong with being clever.

QI is a perfect vehicle for Fry and others to show how clever and witty they are. And why not?

You know, if I was as clever and witty as Stephen Fry. I would be pleased with myself too.

As for the complaints about the intelligence and wit being sullied by smut, remember that many of us LIKE smut. The difference between fans and opponents of smut, is that you are unlikely to hear comments on 'Points Of View' complaining about a paucity of dirty jokes. So keep the smut forthcoming please.

There should be enough facts in the world to keep this show going for a while yet.
