What is QI?

If you’ve seen a British comedy panel game quiz show in the last 20 years, consider that it probably pays an incalculable debt to QI. It’s an unusual panel game quiz show in that so much of it takes place outside of asking and answering questions.

The original series of QI was curated to be as simple as it could be. The concern from the show's creators was that hardly anyone would be able to give a correct answer without significant prompting. For this reason they instead encourage sheer interestingness, which is the main way points can be scored by panel members on this unique UK game show.

Basically, it doesn't matter if the panel members are right, as long as they're quite interesting. It's really about filling in the time with interesting topics of conversation, plus a bit of comedy for good measure. Permanent panel member Alan Davies is the master of formulating a gag from seemingly nothing.

The Hosts of QI

When Stephen Fry's left QI it was certainly the end of an era. Every episode from series A-M with the comedian as host episode can be watched online at iPlayer. Even with the departure of original host Stephen Fry, the series has carried on and is still unpredictable, insightful, and always hilarious.

Sandi Toksvig hosts a fresh batch of comedy stars each episode as they swap funny facts on every subject under the sun. Come for the general knowledge, stay for the casual banter, wild theories, and gags.
