It would not be Christmas without Jimmy Carr's annual quiz and, given the news cycle, there is much for him to smirk at, from Danny Dyer's Brexit bashing to the royal wedding. The teams include Richard Ayoade, Noel Fielding and Claudia Winkleman, with Jon Snow and Charles Dance playing quizmasters.Hannah Verdier, The Guardian, 26th December 2018

Puerile but exuberant Inbetweeners-style comedy featuring typically game work from Joe Thomas.James Mottram, The List, 14th August 2018
