A comedy panel game in which being Quite Interesting is more important than being right. Sandi Toksvig is joined each week by four comedians to share anecdotes and trivia, and maybe answer some questions as well.
Hilarious, totally-irreverent, near-slanderous political quiz show, based mainly on news stories from the last week or so, that leaves no party, personality or action unscathed in pursuit ... See full summary »
Nowhere near as funny as the participants think it is
In this panel game, the players take turns in saying something amusing about themselves, then the others try to work out whether it's true or is a lie. It doesn't work most of the time. That's because most of the lies are either obviously untrue - or are so trivial that it doesn't matter.
The episodes vary a lot in entertainment value, depending who is taking part during that one - but most episodes are awful.
Some of the most common participants aren't good on this show, despite being good elsewhere. David Mitchell is very good in scripted comedy such as Peep Show and the sketch shows that he did with Robert Webb - but as himself, his formal and intellectual style is uncomfortably incongruous for this light-hearted format.
