A wickedly hilarious and witty take on an old classic
23 November 2016 | by cosmopathSee all my reviews

What is there more to say than what was written in the title? The show's host Jimmy Carr is a quick thinker, which allows him to make incredibly funny jokes all while retaining the edgy, dark humour he is known for. The scripted skits that take place while participants are writing down their answers are crazily ridiculous. Resident team captains Sean Lock and Jon Richardson have such strong chemistry with each other that I'd have a hard time imagining comedians that would be better in their place. All the while there is still the classic rounds of Countdown being played that many know and love, all starring the same lexicographer Suzie Dent, and presenter/mathematician Rachel Riley.

The entire show feels genuine, which is an important achievement that some panel shows have an issue with. In conclusion, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown lives up to the hype as one of the pinnacles of British panel shows.
