The BBC Radio Wales panel show, produced by Ruth Jones' Tidy Productions based in Cardiff, is a sort of 'quirky' 8 Out of 10 Cats. By that I mean, all the best things about 8 Out of 10 Cats are distinctly lacking.Cat Roper, Comedy Cymru, 11th November 2012
Dan Mitchell, a former undertaker, found himself lured to the comedy circuit when he realised how gratifying it felt getting laughs at the local pub quiz he ran.Howard Gorman, PPSF Webzine, 4th May 2012
My feelings towards this show are similar to Radio Scotland's The Guessing Game, really, in that it is mixed. It's below par compared to the other satirical comedies around like Have I Got News for You and The News Quiz. Also, the final round of What's The Story? is just HIGNFY's "Missing Words" round without the guest publication, which is often the funniest bit...
