Witty, entertaining and way better than the real news
25 November 2016 | by nourhannassarSee all my reviews

I had no intention of leaving a review on here but I was randomly checking the IMDb page (because that's what I do) and saw there were none so figured I'd give myself the honor of being the first reviewer!

I went to a live recording in London earlier this week and the how-to-fake-laugh instructions given before the recording honestly weren't needed. Anna, Dan, James and Andy are genuinely witty, funny and are constantly pulling out interesting facts from their mental trivia book. I thought that after listening to every single episode of their podcast that I'd be a fact-telling genius but it always starts with me telling half a fact and ends with "just get out their podcast, they say it much better." The show is a great spin-off from the podcast and if you enjoyed 'No such thing as a fish' you'll definitely love it.

Also *addressing the elves* seeing as you're researchers and self-professed geeks, I imagine you might check your own IMDb pages every now and then, so: keep it up guys! I'll definitely be coming to another live recording sometime soon and you might know its me from the fact that I share that "uncombable hair" gene with James.
