Honestly hilarious
4 January 2017 | by ReganRebeccaSee all my reviews

I'm not big on panel shows, but Would I Lie to You? easily transcends its form and is one of my favourite shows period. Featuring a host (currently Rob Brydon, but previously Angus Deayton, for the first two series), and two comedians serving as team captains (David Mitchell playing up his high-brow nerdiness while Lee Mack serves as his foil), the show is genuinely funny with a fairly simple premise. Contestants read a bizarre story off a card and the opposing team is able to question them for a brief period before they must guess whether they are telling the truth or lying.

It's a great format that has introduced me to the best of British comedic talent (Sarah Millican, Miranda Hart, and Rhod Gilbert are some of my fave guest stars) and every episode gives me at least a couple of real laughs.
